Strange, twisted carvings and hideous gargoyles adorn the palazzo of the great Scarletti family. But a more fearful secret lurks within its storm-tossed turrets. For every bride who enters its forbidding walls is doomed to leave in a casket.
Nicoletta knows all too well the curse that plagues the house of Scarletti. She has always believed her miraculous healing gifts would set her apart and that no man would ever command her. Then she gazes into the dark, mesmerizing eyes of Don Scarletti and she fears for her future - for it is Scarletti's ancient right to select a bride from among his people...and he has chosen her.
Compelled by duty, driven by burning, inescapable desire, Nicoletta surrenders to this powerful, hypnotic man, giving her body willingly into his keeping. But will the tormented don be her heart's destiny...or her soul's destruction?

Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
I loved this historical romantic mystery full of suspense and toe curling sex. The narrator was authentic and just wonderful to listen to.
TO SEE HER BELIVE IN KING
THAT THE YOUNGEST LADY OF THE VILLAGE WAS LOVED BY THE KING
SHE SAVED THE SOLIDERS
WHEN THE WEDDING WAS MADE
A GREAT BOOK
I found this to be a better audiobook and I truly love the story. This was the first Christine Feehan book that I read and I still cherish this story over a decade later.
Reading is freedom, learning, traveling,
Nicol was good narrator and I would look for other books where is was the narrator.
