One moment Lady Olivia Granville is strolling along a path, her nose buried in a tome of philosophy; the next she is plunging down a rocky cliff. Only when she regains consciousness, naked and unwittingly trapped on an unknown ship - does she discover that she owes her life to a stranger who is clearly not a gentleman!
Wickedly handsome, disturbingly mysterious, the gray-eyed master of the "Wind Dancer" makes his living from the sea. But it does not take long for Olivia to realise that the rogue who so intimately tended her wounds is a brash pirate, whose schooner is bearing down upon a Spanish galleon. She knows she should be appalled but Olivia is shockingly entranced . . . and recklessly attracted to an outlaw whose gaze holds both challenge and invitation.
Anthony Caxton has known from the first that Olivia Granville is no ordinary woman. But who would have thought that sheltered daughter of a marquis would have a genuine taste for him. Delighted by her response, teased by her beauty, he welcomes her as the newest of his crew, confident that it is only a matter of time before he wins her surrender.
Yet even as Olivia welcomes his embrace, she remains unaware that Anthony is harboring a devastating secret . . . one that will lead them to heartache, scandal, and betrayal. For Anthony is much more than a common pirate . . .
