From Back Cover . . .
“Dear Reader . . . Nearly a decade ago, I published my first novel with Avon Books, “Only in Your Arms.” Since then, romance has changed – and so have I – so I decided to give the book a makeover – and a new title, “When Stranger Marry.” I have two reason for changing the title. First, it is in keeping with the new spirit of the book; second, no one – including my own mother – found the original one memorable!
In “When Strangers Marry”, I had a great time rediscovering the story of Maximilien Vallerand and his stolen bride, Lysette. The promise of this handsome, though mysterious, man’s love proves irresistible to her, but she doesn’t know the secrets he hides.
I hope you will enjoy revisiting the Vallerand family, or perhaps meeting them for the first time. And, as always, thank you for your support and encouragement, as we escape together into the magical world of romance novels.
Wishing you love and happiness, Lisa.
