MAGIC IN HIS KISS back cover copy
She was wild, willful, and most certainly a princess.
But now she’s the king’s ward, and Nicole de Leon’s future is no longer her own. Bound by duty and honor she awaits an arranged marriage … until a handsome warrior appears to spirit her away. Nicole cannot resist his offer of protection or the darkening of desire in his eyes. But a powerful secret torments her, a psychic gift that only this rough warrior can help tame.
He was tempted, tantalized, and most certainly not of noble blood.
Rhodri ap Daffyd’s duty is to defy the king and deliver Nicole to her uncle, his liege lord. But she’s not the spoiled young girl he remembers. She’s a woman steadfast in her loyalty and aflame with passion, a lady never meant for him. An act of defiance brings them together and duty threatens to tear them apart, but will the magic in his kiss reveal a destiny that can’t be denied?

You can lighten it up if you wish by using low fat rolls, light cream cheese and substituting Splenda for the sugar. The person who gave me the recipe says she’s sometimes done all three and she swears no one could tell the difference. I don’t use Splenda, but I do use the low fat rolls and light cream cheese.
top with remaining caramel. Freeze until well set.
