About this item
EVENING STARGiana Van Cleve has fallen in love with a vicious fortune hunter. Her mother, the renowned shipowner and builder Aurora Van Cleve, is desperate to save her daughter. She agrees to support Giana’s wedding if Giana agrees first to spend an unusual three months in Rome with her Uncle Daniele. But Giana’s uncle takes this bargain far beyond what Aurora ever imagined. Thus, Giana first sees Alex Saxton not in a society drawing room, but in a brothel. The next time she sees him, she is one of the virgins to be sold to the highest bidder at the infamous Roman Flower Auction. He wins the bid and her, but not for long. Four years later, when Alex meets Giana again in London, she has become a woman intent on success in a man’s world. Alex is set on revenge—he will have her and nothing will stop him.
MIDNIGHT STARMidnight Star, the second of the four Star novels, is the story of Delaney Saxton, a man who struck it rich in the California gold rush of 1849 and stayed to build a great city, and Chauncey FitzHugh, an heiress from England who travels to San Francisco to avenge her father. She believes Delaney Saxton ruined him and plans to destroy Saxton in the same way he destroyed her father—leaving him betrayed and penniless. But her prey isn’t what she expected. He is charming, too handsome for his own good, rich—and elusive as a wisp of smoke. As for Chauncey, as bright and creative as she is, she can’t come up with a plan to ruin him financially until, quite by accident, she is hurt and ends up in his bed and in his care. Naturally, one thing leads to another. Chauncey gains what she wants, but soon the tables are turned. These two strong-willed people must overcome their distrust of each other and deal with a relentless killer from halfway across the world. You’ll also meet Brent Hammond and Saint Morris, the two lovely men from the final “Quadruplets”—Wild Star and Jade Star.
