An epic adventure awaits—from peril on the high seas to forbidden passion among the ton—in this sexy and swashbuckling Regency romance debut.
On a voyage back to England after two-year abroad, Lady Valerie Monroe is taken captive by pirates. Bound and trapped on the high seas, her torment is only compounded as she begins to fall in love with a fellow captive—a mysterious French priest who somehow maintains his dignity despite their dire predicament . . .
Months later, Valerie finds that her time away from the ton has done nothing to diminish their harsh judgments for her reckless past. She dreams of the breathtaking man of the cloth with whom she shared her greatest adventure. But she is shocked to encounter him once again under his true identity!
Viscount Steven Ashford is dedicated to ensnaring the criminals who stalk the high seas. Working undercover was only a small part of a larger plan. But now, despite the danger, their consuming passion cannot be denied. Standing in the way of their desire are Valerie’s wounded heart, Steven’s lone destiny, and a villain who will stop at nothing to crush them both.
