He knew her face as well as he knew her laugh or her touch. In spite of his best efforts, everything about her was engraved in his memory as it had once been on his heart. She laughed again and his jaw clenched. Philosophy should be reserved for long, cold winter nights when there is little more to do than comment on the state of the world around us. I don't remember you as being at all serious. A teasing note rang in her voice and he was at once grateful she was not at all serious. Regardless of the countless times he'd gone over this very conversation in his head, right now he wasn't prepared to discuss serious matters.
In truth, he wasn't prepared for her. He placed the apparatus back on the table, picked up a rag and wiped the grease and grime from his hands. How could I not? Last kissed her. All part of his attempt to refine a device of his own design to effectively heat the air required to lift a balloon without blowing himself up in the process.
The phrase caught at him.

Sailing the heavens was the whimsical term she'd first called his efforts at ballooning and then what they'd shared between them. It had seemed so fitting once. Not just for his work but for the way she, and she alone, had made him feel.
Sailing the heavens. He pushed aside the sentiment. Even now, I am preparing for a competition of sorts. A design contest, really. I have some innovations that may prove quite profitable.
The risk. The gamble. It's the best part of living, knowing your very existence is at stake. He ignored the unbidden thought and shrugged. She shook her head; her voice was somber. Her balloon caught fire and she plunged to her death. Yes, I had heard of it. She was the widow of a balloonist and had taken up where her husband had left off.

And can a man be strong enough to be the mere husband of a powerful woman? Polished and delightful, this duel of words, wit and hearts between a princess on a quest and an aristocratic balloonist fallen on hard times sparkles with humor even as the romance sizzles.
Tatiana, princess of Avalonia, believes that asking Lord Matthew Weston to assist her by posing as her husband so she can travel across the English countryside and look for her family's long-lost jewels will kill two birds with one stone. It allows her to search without arousing the attention of a murderous evil cousin who desires to rule Avalonia, and it's an excellent excuse to see Matthew, whom she met last year in Paris while in disguise, married and then abandoned after one week when she realized she had to discharge her royal duties before she could become his true wife.
But Matthew isn't eager to play her game. He knows she's keeping secrets from him, and his heart has already been broken once by her and her deceptions. Alexander cleverly gives Matthew and Tatiana enough rope to make mistakes and enough personal courage to make the two worthy of each other. While the pair search for royal treasure, readers will realize that they've already found it in these pages. The Wedding Bargain. Escapades amoureuses tome 1 - Gentleman et vaurien.
