JEWEL OF THE EAST by Victoria Vane (The Devil DeVere #5)
Having once lived his life only for larks, laughter, and ladies of easy virtue, Captain Simon Singleton has returned from the war with the colonies a shambles of a man. Now free from six years of captivity, he’s still fettered by irrational fears that confine him to a life of seclusion.
Once the crowning jewel of the most lavish brothel in London, the exotic Salime finds her reputation and livelihood destroyed by a bitter rival. With a closely guarded secret stripped away, Salime fears no man will ever desire her again. Seeking aid from one who once saved her life, Salime accepts a proposition to repay her debt by becoming a companion to his war-scarred friend. Circumstance brings these two damaged souls together; but fate ignites a love story worthy of the Arabian Nights.
*While this book is most definitely part of my DeVere series, I have written it to easily read as a standalone for those who have not read the other books.*
