WINNER OF RT BOOK REVIEWS’ Award for BEST BRITISH ISLES HISTORICAL ROMANCE!
~ Nathan Raveneau, known in Regency London as “The Scapegrace”, is also a sea captain with an estate on Barbados. To gain land near his island enemy, Xavier Crowe, Raveneau agrees to act as protector to headstrong Adrienne Beauvisage – and keep her chaste until her 21st birthday.
Adrienne is both outraged and intrigued by the man who calls himself Nathan Essex. She knows little of the threats that lurk at the English castle of eccentric Lady Thomasina Harms… or of the daring that Raveneau, in his guise as Nathan Essex, must employ to keep her out of harm’s way.
As the powerful attraction between them builds, Nathan is forced to abduct an unwilling Adrienne, boldly spiriting her away to his ship. In a rousing adventure that carries them from Regency England across the sea to magical Barbados, Nathan and Adrienne struggle against a compelling and passionate love while caught in a growing web of danger.
