For reasons she did not know, the beautiful French aristocrat had been taken captive and branded with a shameful "scarlet lily". But now the iron door had just swung open, and a tall, masked stranger stood before her. As his dark, piercing eyes searched her face, Caresse felt fear - and desire stir. Seducer or savior, his touch ignited a fiery yearning that would soon bind them together in passion's dangerous embrace...A ROGUE ENCHANTED...Lucien St. Amant had come to France driven by one desire only: revenge. Instead, the Louisianna plantation owner found himself transfixed by a woman whose radiant beauty glowed through the stone walls of her prison and sent desire raging through him. Sworn to possess her in passion and fury, Lucien made Caresse de Villier an offer she couldn't refuse: freedom in exchange for marriage. But as the sultry heat of New Orleans days gave way to searing southern nights, it was his tempting bride who soon enslaved him - with a wild, wanton love that could either destroy them both or join their hearts forever!...

The Rogue and the Lily (Zebra Lovegram) Reviews
Diane Gates Robinson is one of those authors who wrote one masterpiece (THE EAGLE AND THE ROSE) and two or three okay books, and then just quietly faded away.This book is set in New Orleans in the 1700's, and it's just okay. The heroine is named "Caresse" which makes it hard to take her very seriously. Diane Gates Robinson always writes about ladies who are super proper, and ladylike even in the throes of screaming passion. And they can be almost comically dainty and delicate. At one point Caresse actually compares herself to the doves that nest on the roof. But the research on Colonial era New Orleans is actually very interesting.
This book was a little strange, but not too bad. I read it fast and i wasn't annoyed or bored from it so I'll just say it is perfect for a cold winter day like today, to read inside in front of the fire place when it is snowing outside. And to read for the hot New Orleans.
This one was pretty good. A few too many remarks about how small the h was, for example " child woman" or " her tiny hands" was used way too much. I get it....She's small. And there is really no groveling for the H in this one......and there really should have been.
