Today is the day Francesca Thomas was supposed to get married. All she wants is a stiff drink and a whole lot of distraction…which is exactly when she meets him. Tall, dark, and deliciously disguised, the man known only as Phantom awakens her every sense. All Frankie really knows about him is the raw, untamed chemistry that makes her want to relinquish herself—body and soul—to his touch…
Phantom has rules, all designed to protect his identity. No names. No personal information. But Frankie is a too-tempting ingenue who threatens all of his cautious, careful control. At the ultra-exclusive Black Rose Underground Club, he can explore each of her deepest, uncharted desires…so long as he keeps his public life—and his secrets—hidden.
Frankie’s ready to explore what lies between them. The intensity, the darkness, and the unyielding pleasure of it all. But while the mystery of Phantom is thrilling, secrets are one game she won’t play. And if she’s going to explore the forbidden, she’ll begin with finding out exactly who’s under the mask…
Each book in the Black Rose series is STANDALONE:
Praise for Helen Hardt
"Ms. Hardt has a way of writing that makes me forget I'm reading a book. It's more like slipping into a world she created and getting lost for a while." -Tiger Lily, Whipped Cream Reviews
"Flawlessly written, and in my opinion a work of art…" - Girly Girl Book Reviews
"This book was fantastic. It was steamy, funny, romantic, and just about any other emotion you can think of…" –Steamy Book Mama
This is a beautiful love story between two people who weren’t ever supposed to be together. The story moved along and didn’t drag at all… Great read for those who love historical romance, and even if you don’t, I say try this series.
