The chemistry between an aspiring surgeon and her admirer, a Turkish prince, sizzles in this fourth installment of "USA Today"-bestselling author Ashe's historical series. Original.
The temptation of her lips...
Libby Shaw refuses to accept society's dictates. She's determined to become a member of Edinburgh's all-male Royal College of Surgeons. Disguising herself as a man, she attends the surgical theater and fools everyone-except the one man who has never forgotten the shape of her exquisitely sensual lips.
...will make a prince say yes to her every desire
Forced to leave his home as a boy, famed portraitist Ziyaeddin is secretly the exiled prince of a distant realm. When he first met Libby, he memorized every detail of her face and drew her. But her perfect lips gave him trouble-the same lips he now longs to kiss. When Libby asks his help to hide her feminine identity from the world, Ziyaeddin agrees on one condition: she must sit for him to paint-as a woman. But what begins as a daring scheme could send them both hurtling toward danger...and an unparalleled love.
