Set up: Elise, a lady's maid, is considering her ill-fated attraction to Jesse.
He was a tall man with a rough, battle-weary face and a sinewy body.
A man that made her swoon. That was a very bad thing, according to Colette, who claimed such men were always trouble.
Was that true? She would love to find out, but she knew her limitations.
“Capitaine.” She greeted him and dropped into a polite curtsy.She had no illusions when it came to him. During their brief encounters, Jesse had been forthcoming about himself, and he had spoken of living the kind of life she had never known.
A move from
Paris to New Orleans brings disaster to Elise Plaisance’s predictable life as a lady’s maid. The son of her grief-stricken mistress disappears, and Elise is drawn into a dangerous web of espionage and deceit when she turns to a devious gentleman for help.
A CAPTAIN BEWITCHED
Captain Jesse Cross doesn’t fancy himself as a lovelorn soldier desperate for a woman until a mysterious French spy captivates his imagination. Their romance is a frail illusion, born in the darkness of a moonlit courtyard and never meant to last forever.
A FUTURE IMPERILED
The enemy strikes. Both on the battlefield and in the Quarter. Torn between loyalty and love, Elise must risk everything to rescue her mistress’s son before all is lost. Jesse knows he has to stop her even if it means sacrificing his honor as well as his life to save a lady.
