(Fiery Tales #2)
Simon Boulenger /Angelica de Castel
Inspired by the tale of Rapunzel, USA Today bestselling author Lila DiPasqua, offers a new steamy, emotionally charged historical romance in the acclaimed Fiery Tales Series . . . Rescuing this beauty from the ‘tower’ is only the beginning . . .
Maintaining her ruse as a commoner, and trusting no one has kept Angelica safe. But a chance encounter with a handsome stranger lands her right where danger lies. Now, this sinfully handsome man with arresting blue eyes and a polished manner thinks he’s saved her life, when in fact he’s placed her in great peril. She’s intent on keeping him and everyone else at arm’s length. Yet, the smoldering attraction between them is difficult to deny. And impossible to ignore . . .
As commander of a number of privateer ships, Simon Boulenger dresses and speaks like an aristocrat, and has obtained wealth. But he is still not a noble. Or an officer in the King’s Navy. His lifelong dream to elevate himself from his station of birth and attain a respectable place in society is dead. Worse, he’s ensnared in a deadly scheme, and must get out. But how is he to stay focused on his dangerous mission when the mysterious beauty has him utterly intrigued? He can’t afford the distraction any more than he can resist the carnal hunger she stirs. Simon soon discovers that she’s not only a passionate soul mate, but a woman born into privilege. A woman he can never have. But they’re in too deep. Their hearts are at risk . . . as well as their lives.
Undone is the second book in author Lila DiPasqua’s Fiery Tales series. Fiery Tales are erotic retellings inspired by Fairy Tales. Undone is inspired by the tale of Rapunzel.
Simon Boulenger was born a commoner, son of a fisherman. He was orphaned at a young age and worked his way up to be the French Crown’s most successful privateer and the captain of his own fleet.
Angelica has been hiding away in a convent for 10 years in the Republic of Genoa, ever since she escaped France. So when she awakes in a château in the south of France she’s horrified.
If you’ve read the first book in this series, A Midnight Dance then you’ve already met Simon. I’ll admit he intrigued me in the last book and I was excited to hear this book was his story. Well I absolutely fell for Simon! He’s definitely one of my favorite hero’s of Ms. DiPasqua!
I absolutely adored Simon and Angelica together. Both have insecurities and tragedies in their pasts that keep them from being open with each other. This was definitely an extremely emotionally charged book. There is a lot going on in this story and I don’t want to give away any spoilers. But it was a fantastic read that I struggled to put down it was so good. The storyline was intriguing, wonderful secondary characters and an absolutely perfect ending! I loved this story and would highly recommend it!
