Back in her lush, beloved Carramer, Carissa Day purchased the perfect B and B for raising her babies-to-be. Trouble was, an aristocratic "intruder" proved she'd been swindled-her new home was actually his royal lodge. Worse, he proved to be Carissa's teenage crush, Eduard de Marigny, Marquis of Merrisand-now more irresistible than ever. Penniless and pregnant-with triplets!- Carissa had to flee. Eduard, however, had other ideas. Namely, a partnership giving Carissa a title and protection-and giving him an instant heir. Still, even with reignited passion burning between them, even with a kingdom at her feet, could Carissa wed her first and only love-and forever forsake having his heart?
