Publisher's Summary

On a lush caribbean island, love and magic ignite a fiery passion....

Terrified of her impending marriage, beautiful Elene Larpent scents her body with a Haitian voodoo perfume guaranteed to bewitch the wealthy landowner and ensure his devotion. But just moments into the wedding, a violent slave uprising interrupts the consecration.

Elene escapes - only to be captured by a ruthless band of men. On the verge of certain death, she is saved by handsome Captain Ryan Bayard. Then, amid the exotic breezes of St. Dominique, Elene and the captain discover a lust as sultry as the Caribbean air. In her passion, Elene quickly forgets the magic potion she had applied to her delicate skin. But Elene must wait to see if it is true love or the dizzying aphrodisiac that inflames the captain's desire. For the uninhibited pair have much in store before the perfume's power is fully unleashed....

Loved this story

This story is a perfect example of what happens when a man and a women fall in love but fail to communicate that they have done so to each other. Their actions with each other and their reactions to each other are a dead giveaway to everyone else but themselves.
Life and loving gets very hot and interesting starting with a slave revolt during a wedding so that the vows cannot be completed. Then Elene's escape, a magic potion, meeting up with the hero, Ryan and the excitement mounts and mounts until the very end of this book. There is also quite a bit of sleuthing that Elene's does when she tries to solve a mystery involving deaths by arsenic poisoning.
I really enjoyed this story and am looking forward to reading or listening to more in this series.
The narration enhanced the story and I must commend Melba on this.
Nicely done! Both of you.

Overall good

Unfortunately I felt the performance left the main character sounding weak, childlike and whiny. I think the story overall would have been a great beach read but could not get past the narration.

Absolutely wonderful....

What a wonderful listen; history, adventure and romance, absolute whirlwind of emotions, I didn’t want it to end. Ryan is a true hero, strong, loyal and always constant in his love for Elena and even though I didn’t always understand actions and motivations of heroine it didn’t diminish my enjoyment of the story... Highly recommend! 🌟
