[PDF] A Rose at Midnight By Sylvie Kurtz. He abandoned her to save her life. Now he must convince her he still loves her before the stroke of midnight on Mardi Gras . . . or condemn her to her death.
Nine years ago, Christiane Lawrence fell hard for a mysterious young music student. Even after he left her without a goodbye, the memory of Daniel Moreau haunts Christi every day when she looks at their daughter's face.
Whenever Christi asked about her mother's family, she was warned to stay away from the birthplace her mother fled. Now, grieving her parents' death in a car accident, an invitation from Gabriel Langelier, a cousin she'd never met arrives, promising answers. This is her chance to give her daughter a taste of the family roots she never had.
What Christiane doesn't know is that her mother's warning sprang from real fear. Gabriel is obsessed with the legend of Rose Latulippe. He's sure only someone from Christiane's bloodline can fulfill his quest for eternal life. He must have her heart at midnight on Mardi Gras.
To save the woman he loved, Daniel made a bargain with the devil and abandoned her without explanation. And now she's back in the middle of danger, bringing their daughter with her.
To have a second chance and earn Christiane's forgiveness, Daniel has to convince Christi he still loves her before the stroke of midnight on Mardi Gras . . . or send her to her death.
