Darling Jasmine

388 pages8 hours


From the New York Times–bestselling queen of historical romance: Love and danger pursue a hot-blooded woman on the run in seventeenth-century France.
Every bit as headstrong, fearless, and lustful as her grandmother, the legendary Skye O’Malley, Jasmine had twice been forced into marriage. Rebelling at King James’s decree that she wed Jemmie Leslie, fifth earl of Glenkirk, she flees to France with her children—a bold move that has further enraged the courts. For Jasmine’s youngest son is the illegitimate offspring of her lover, Prince Henry Stuart, the king’s only grandson. But nobody tells Jasmine whom to love—even if the fearsome man on her heels is the one she secretly desires.
Jemmie Leslie has come to France to possess Jasmine—by force if necessary. Though they shared a night of pulse-quickening passion, her rejection of their betrothal stunned and maddened him. Yet once he sees her again, Jemmie realizes what it will take to win back the elusive Jasmine . . . and it’s something beyond ecstasy.
“Rare poignancy, heartstopping adventure, and sizzling sensuality.” —Romantic Times
