The story titles are: THE TWO BOONS RAMAN'S BANISHMENT THE GOLDEN MANGOES WHO IS THE SMARTEST?
Once, Abrielle was a privileged daughter coveted for her bearing, her breeding, her wit, and her beauty. But when her stepfather is denied his rightful title and the wealth that accompanies it, Abrielle finds herself suddenly disgraced. Only one man would still have her: the oafish and grotesque Desmond de Marlé. To rescue her once-proud family's honor, Abrielle must sacrifice her virtue to this scoundrel she fears and detests . . . even as she yearns for another lover. Dashing, handsome, tall, and kind, Raven Seabern is quite unlike any man Abrielle has ever encountered. But their love can never be, for Abrielle is betrothed to a monster. And the well-being of everyone she cares for demands that she honor her promise. Still, Raven knows he has found the true one and must never let her go--though secrets, deceptions, dishonor, and unimaginable peril will surely be their fate if they follow the dictates of their hearts.

It is the story, too, of the handsome Boston lawyer who taught her to love but could not give her enough...of the savvy, street-wise other man who awakened the kind of desire she feared the most...and of a family, whose loves and lusts, intrigues and betrayals, heartbreaks and triumphs, became her bloodline to daring ambition. Sweeping from New York's flower district to elegant East Hampton to England's beautiful countryside and Amsterdam's world-famous flower auctions, this sumptuous novel gives full reign to an extraordinary, fiercely determined woman with the courage and spirit to make her dreams come true.
