WINTER BRIDE - Iris Johansen
A Tanned, Tough, Reckless Lancelot...
Jed Corbin slipped inside The island castle by night, determined to solve the mystery of the woman who'd won the prize that should have been his. But he never expected to tumble a captive princess to the floor, nor to feel an astonishing, furious desire for this voluptuous wildcat clothed in ermine and velvet! Ysabel Belfort had had her own desperate reasons for agreeing to become one man's fantasy, but now she was free of his prison, and prepared to trade everything she'd won for what she must have--Jed 's help in returning to her home of San Miguel, to recover what she d been forced to leave behind.
Jed felt a savage pleasure in arousing Ysabel and commanding her surrender but he was stunned to find the true conquest was hers. Engulfed in a whirlwind of danger and desire, helpless to resist the primitive demands of their hearts and bodies, Jed and Ysabel fought each other and a shadowy evil for the victory they sought--but if they lived, could they cherish each other for always?

Iris Johansen does it again! Absolutely riveting! Ysabel's soft exterior hides one tough lady. Jed Corbin has made a life for himself as the top news anchorman in the States. When his unlamented father dies, he is shocked to discover he has a stepmom who looks exactly like the beautiful medieval portrait of the Winter Bride made flesh. Because of his contacts in San Miguel, she asks for his help to free her brother. In return, she is willing to give him whatever he wants. As they each face their own demons, they discover love. Despite the danger, Jed must prove he is not the greedy, manipulative person his father was. This one's a keeper!
