A Midnight DancePaperback - 2011 | Berkley Sensation trade paperback ed.
Inspired by the tale of Cinderella, Lila DiPasqua weaves a steamy story that offers a glass slipper, a dangerous deception, and an impoverished beauty determined to find her handsome prince . . . and make him pay.
Born into wealth, Sabine Laurent and her twin sister lived a life of luxury, their father's prestigious theatre frequented by royalty and aristocracy alike. And Sabine dreamed of her own Prince Charming-the devastatingly handsome Jules de Moutier.
That was before the loss of her sister and her family's fall from grace-a disaster Sabine blames on the Moutier family. Now, with her father's death, she's inherited his sizable debt and the responsibility of caring for his spoiled longtime mistress and her two wastrel daughters. But with the help of Sabine's eccentric friends-the blame of her father's acting troupe-she plans to get very close to her infatuation, seduce the rake-and make off with a fortune.
Resisting Jules's skillful mouth and tantalizing touch is not as easy as Sabine supposed, though. And soon she must decide whether her desire for vengeance is greater than her desire for her one and only prince . . .
