From the essence of desire...a king's baby!
While exiled king Alix Saint Croix lies in wait to reclaim his throne, a mistress would provide a welcome distraction. Entering a Parisian perfume house to buy a fragrance for a current lover, he leaves with a powerful craving for another woman altogether - stunningly exotic perfumer Leila Verughese.
The very smell of Alix awakens Leila's every nerve. If she's going to give her innocence to anyone, who better than a king? But it's an alchemy with life-changing repercussions....
Leila's life spirals out of control until she realizes her power.... She's carrying a royal heir!
