The Man in the Iron Mask: The Mystery Solved
The Search for the Man in the Iron Mask: A Historical Detective Story
The Search for the Man in the Iron Mask triumphantly solves an enduring puzzle that has stumped historians for centuries and seduced novelists and filmmakers to this day. Who was the man who was rumored to have been kept in prison and treated royally during much of the reign of Louis XIV while being forced to wear an iron mask? Could he possibly have been the twin brother of the Sun King? Like every other serious scholar, intrepid historian Paul Sonnino discounts this theory, instead taking the reader along on his adventures to uncover the truth behind this ancient enigma. Exploring the hidden, squalid side of the lavish court of France, the author uncovers the full spectrum of French society, from humble servants to wealthy merchants to kings and queens. All had self-interested reasons to hold their secrets close until one humble valet named Eustache Dauger was arrested and jailed for decades, simply because he knew too much and opened his mouth at the wrong time. Presenting his dramatic solution to the mystery, Sonnino convincingly shows that no one will be able to tell the story of the man in the iron mask without taking into account the staggering array of evidence he has uncovered over the course of decades.

The Man In The Mirror: A Billionaire Romance
Yeah, that's me. Once, I had everything: power, looks, fame, an obscene amount of money, a trophy wife, and a beautiful little boy. Then, in a blink of an eye my enviable life was taken away.
I was left with nothing except my dirty money and my heart of stone.
I looked in the mirror and could not recognize myself. God had a sense of humor. I was ugly inside and now I was ugly outside too. It was divine justice.
I retreated to my castle in Wales and allowed no one to come face to face with me. My staff carried out my instructions and asked no questions. The only thing left to me was to acquire more money that I would never spend.
The months passed and I grew accustomed to my isolation. As I roamed about alone I even began to appreciate the darkness of my life. I lost interest in the world outside the thick walls of my castle. Nothing held any interest for me anymore.
Until she came. Charlotte Conrad, the nanny.
At the end of every evening we communicated through the intercom system. She kept me informed about the progress she was making with my son, Zachary.
I was just an employer listening to his employee, but slowly, insidiously, I began to imagine her young body; soft and sensuous against mine.
I wanted to take her. I wanted to hear her talk dirty to me.
I wanted her to unleash the wild, unrestrained animal that was lurking inside me.
I was becoming addicted...
This book is a full length standalone romance with guaranteed HEA but your reading enjoyment may be enhanced by reading Nanny and the beast. Two best friends and nannies each have their own story in these two books.
