Book Description

From emerald jungles to the high seas to the glittering ballrooms of Regency London, beloved author Gaelen Foley tells a sweeping, sensual tale of the ruggedly handsome Lord Jack Knight and the passionate beauty who lays claim to his heart.

An English rose blooming in the untamed jungles of South America, Eden Farraday lives a life of independence–unheard of for a lady–with her doctor-turned-scientist father. But Eden misses England desperately. When the dangerous and darkly charming Lord Jack Knight sails into her life, she seizes her chance to return to civilization, stowing away aboard his London-bound ship.

Roguish and charismatic, a self-made shipping tycoon with a shadowy past and a well-guarded heart, Jack is sailing on a vital secret mission. When the redheaded temptress is discovered aboard his vessel, he reacts with fury–and undeniable lust. Forced to protect her from his rough crew, the devilish Lord Jack demands a scandalous price in exchange for Eden’s safe passage across the sea. As his wicked kiss ignites an unforgettable blaze of passion between them, Jack and Eden confront a soul-searing love that cannot be denied.

From the Paperback edition.

Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In the seventh installment of the Knight Miscellany series, a high seas adventure, Foley is deft as ever. This Regency romance begins in the jungles of Venezuela, where British native Eden Farraday lives with her father, Dr. Victor Farraday, as he looks for medicinal plants—but she pines for London, the company of "normal people" and the chance to find a husband. When her father reneges on his promise to return to England, Eden finds her own way out of the jungle. Rakish Lord Jack Knight—the black sheep of the Knight family—is boating down the river, after a meeting with Bolivar's rebels, when he encounters Eden. He refuses to take her aboard his London-bound ship, but undaunted, Eden rows down the river after him and stows away. When Jack discovers Eden, he installs her in his cabin for his own amusement; contrary to his intention, he becomes infatuated, and their relationship begins to break down Jack's hardened facade. Foley maintains the delicious tension between Jack and Eden throughout; that, along with the mystery of Jack's past, propels the novel (following One Night of Sin) to an exciting conclusion. (May)

5.0 out of 5 stars Black-Jack Knight--Need I Say More? May 28, 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
As a long awaited historical by Ms. Foley, "His Wicked Kiss" was more than worth the wait. The pinnacle of this wonderful series takes readers on a spectacular voyage of oceanic proportions. Make way for the story of Black-Jack Knight, scourge of the Knight family-or is he?

Eden Farraday is tired of her rugged existence in the wilds of Venezuela. Her father, brilliant though he is, has finally gone round the bend. He wants to take them even further into the untamed lands, into the very heart of the forbidden Amazon! Craving a life amongst London society, Eden is determined to escape her mad father. When the infamous Jack Knight floats downriver to their settlement, Eden hatches a plan to stow away. Her plan becomes reality when he refuses aid, forcing her to hide on his ship. Jack discovers the untamed beauty, and finding the close quarters of ship and berth too much to resist, the two embark on a journey of survival and discovery-of the heart. Someone pursues Eden though, a dangerous man not of mind to give her up. Enemies lurk as Jack further involves himself in the war between Venezuela and Spain. Can their differences be set aside and most important-can Jack learn to trust in love?

Many readers wondered as they savored Ms Foley's Knight series-will we ever read about the elusive Jack? Jack's story is the best of the series to date and this reader couldn't have come away more pleased. Appearances are not always what they seem, something Jack proves in his vulnerabilities. His reputation precedes him, but it does not define him. Eden is a rare lady; one raised without the negative and twisted attitudes of society. Her fresh approach to life is the catalyst for Jack's healing. Foley uses rich dialogue and plotting to engage the reader from start to finish.

4.0 out of 5 stars Started out great, but . . . May 2, 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Like many of Ms Foley's fans, I have been very much looking forward to second son and blacksheep Jack Knight's story since he was first mentioned in THE DUKE. I think Ms Foley really delivered in the way she developed Jack's character, the way his childhood affected him and in the way he built his business empire. I think pairing him with the wonderfully open and optimistic but lonely Eden was also genius. I loved the opening setting in Venezuela amid Bolivar's insurgency against Spain and the subsequent voyage to England on Jack's ship was great. So what's the problem? The last third of the book.

As another reviewer mentioned, the first two-thirds of this book are fantastic! Five stars good IMO. Jack Knight, owner of a far-flung and profitable shipping enterprise is also occasionally a supporter of causes and he believes in Bolivar's revolt against Spain. Jack has secreted guns to the rebels and has also promised to recruit and deliver mercenaries from England and Ireland to fight with Bolivar. While traveling down river back to his ship he and his crew come upon an amazing sight. A lovely young woman sitting high up in a tree in the rainforest along the Orinoco!

She is Eden Faraday, daughter of renown doctor and naturalist Victor Faraday, and she is desperate to return to civilization. She's been living here in the middle of nowhere for twelve years and she longs to travel to England, wear beautiful gowns, attends balls, have a season. She asks Jack to take her back with him, but he refuses. Undaunted, she stows away on his ship only to be discovered two weeks into the trip. She and Jack are immediately attracted to one another and so a really nice relationship begins and then grows for the duration of the journey.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
An exciting start, likeable leads, and lots of fascinating historical details quickly involved me in this adventure-filled romance. It is the seventh book in Foley's "Knights Miscellany" series, and focuses on black sheep Jack Knight. Jack is the product of an extramarital affair between the promiscuous Duchess of Hawkscliffe and an Irish prizefighter. The Duke claimed him as his son, but his true parentage was widely known. Jack had a loveless childhood, treated as an outcast by his parents and society alike and, at seventeen, left home angry and disillusioned when the girl he loved refused him due to his inferior pedigree. Now twenty years later, the mysterious Jack is a wealthy, world-hardened and powerful shipping merchant based in Jamaica. He has never married, preferring to keep his liaisons temporary and procurable.

Jack is visiting Venezuela, where he secretly meets with Bolivar's rebels and agrees to sail to England to obtain needed assistance for them. He has not set foot in England all these years, and lives in dread of it. On his way to his ship, he stumbles upon Eden Farraday in the Venezuelan jungle. The red-haired beauty has been toiling in the wilds with her scientist father for twelve lonely years and is desperate to return to England, but her father refuses. Eden and Jack are immediately attracted to one another - Jack is more captivated by this sweet, smart and resourceful angel than he can ever remember being. She pleads with him to take her with him, but Jack reluctantly leaves her behind. The cynical and solitary Jack does not want any woman on his ship, and his mission must be kept a secret from outsiders. Eden sees her only chance at freedom, so she runs away and eventually sneaks aboard Jack's ship.
