Book Description

"A wonderful love story full of adventure, action and romance!" New York Times Bestselling Author Madeline Hunter on HONOR BOUND

Boxed set of two historical romance novels from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Brenda Novak, including:


He was a man who took what he wanted. And he wanted her.

To escape her cruel stepfather, seamstress Alexandra Cogsworth envisioned sailing far from England...though not as a captive aboard a pirate's ship.

Pirate captain Nathaniel Kent's strategy for exacting revenge on his coldhearted father involved taking a valuable hostage...not a seamstress he mistakenly thinks is his half sister.

Yet fate has designs of its own, landing them both on board the Royal Vengeance. At sea, Nathaniel intercepts and plunders his father's ships, all the while tormented by his illicit hunger for the tempting prisoner he thinks is his blood relation. And although Alexandra wants no part in this terrifying voyage, to reveal her true identity to the handsome, blue-eyed Nathaniel would invite danger. Not only would she become worthless cargo, but the revelation would surely unleash what she and Nathaniel have been fiercely battling--a rising undercurrent of impossible desire that could sweep them away for good.


"An absorbing, fast-paced romance..." --New York Times Bestselling Author Jo Beverley

"A passionate romance...exciting...unforgettable." --USA Today Bestselling Author Amanda Scott

"Impressive...this novel has all the elements a reader craves: delicious family secrets, high seas adventure, and a passionate love story. Read and enjoy!" New York Times Bestselling Author Susan Wiggs


To some men honor is just a word….

Jeannette Boucher, a young French beauty from a family left penniless by the revolution, must marry against her will to save them all from ruin. But almost immediately after the vows are spoken, she learns that her old English husband is impotent—and in his desire for an heir, he plans to compromise her in the worst way.

Determined to escape such a fate, she stows away on one of His Majesty’s frigates. But a woman alone is in constant danger.

To Lieutenant Treynor, honor means everything….

Born a bastard to a wayward marquise, Lieutenant Crawford Treynor was given to a poor farmer to raise and was maltreated until he ran away to join the Royal Navy. Treynor is determined to prove he’s as good as any other man and rise to captain his own frigate. But once he finds Jeannette aboard The Tempest he must decide whether to return her to the man he knows would abuse her—or risk everything, even his life, to keep her safe.

REVIEWS: "I fell in love with HONOR BOUND. This is a romance you can’t put down."

--New York Times Bestselling Author Elizabeth Boyle

“A rip-roaring story brimming with adventure and passion. I dare you to put HONOR BOUND down once you start reading it!”

--Award-winning Author Anna Campbell

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Books~! April 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I've read both books (seperately) and love them. The stories are wonderfully written and the characters are believable. I finished each book in less than a day because once I started reading, I wasn't able to put them down!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved them both! April 5, 2012
By Kelsey
Format:Kindle Edition
What I enjoyed most about these books is that they are so different from what's out there. They have an authenticity about them that I haven't been able to find in a lot of the other historical romances I've read lately. The conflicts feel real and the love that develops between the two main characters is rewarding and fun without being corny. There's just not as much fluff and yet you get the pay off. They actually remind me of some of the historical romances I read when I was younger--what drew me into the genre in the first place.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two definite must reads! April 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having read a couple of really awful books recently, it was a delight to come across these two. Both had everything - a real story, romance, excitement, and long enough to keep me going for more than half an hour. 'Of Noble Birth' is set at the beginning of the 19th Century, located in England, and tells the story of the social mores of the time, what is acceptable and what is not, as far as the gentry are concerned. It has a nautical theme, with the lead male character overcoming his birth defect to captain a ship. [As an aside, can a one-armed person tell me how you tie a ribbon in your hair?] I was enthralled by the story from beginning to end. The second book, 'Honor Bound' is set at the end of the 18th Century, also in England, also with a nautical theme. It is a tale of a young French woman who has fled the atrocities of revolutionary France, to find herself wed to an ageing peer who has strange ideas of how to beget an heir. The story is the tale of how she tries to escape the marriage, and her adventures, and love, subsequently. Neither story is related to the other, each is a complete stand-alone - either/both is/are a thoroughly good read. Highly, highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Both are great books!! May 30, 2012
By Jess
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I got these both for free, but would have certainly paid for them. Historical romance is my absolute favorite and both of these books put you right in the story, and the plots took twists and turns so they weren't your "typical" romance novels. Just the right amount of steam, nothing too raunchy, in my opinion, although I like a few romance scenes. I would highly recommend these!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent and riveting tales May 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Seldom have I read such well-written historical romances. Ms. Novak is to be complimented on her attention to detail and her knowledge of the times in which these tales are set. The descriptions of the surroundings, whether they be of a decrepit inn, the site of a grand ball, or the last throes of a dying frigate, are breath taking and command the reader's faithful attention. I am now a confirmed Brenda Novak fan and eagerly anticipate reading more of her writings. Brava!

3.0 out of 5 stars Convoluted story June 6, 2012
By Rudolf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My first impression as I read this book was that it had way to many things going on. Kidnap and piracy were a good start but the piracy aspect was strange. I don't think transferring a shipment at sea is a minor thing. And the travel time for the Black Sea expedition was murky. Sailing details were minor and the crew seemed small even for a schooner. I liked the heroes story, it was interesting and different. The heroines story as also good. Combining those two with the kidnapping was a nice touch. But the convoluted gun running story was over done. And then the minor problem with the brothel and her rescue by none other than Nathaniel. Then the imprisonment and escape. I did like the touch of Alex's joining the Duke's household but the other subplot of Clifton's pursuit of Alex could have been handled better IMHO. In either case, I was reading this book just to get it over with. It was very tiring.

The wrap up of the whole affair was a little rushed after all the things that transpired. Maybe a simpler more direct story would have made this better, because I really liked the characters.

More About the Author

Brenda Novak Bio

It was a shocking experience that jump-started Brenda Novak's career as a bestselling author--she caught her day-care provider drugging her children with cough syrup to get them to sleep all day. That was when Brenda decided she needed to quit her job as a loan officer and help make a living from home.

"When I first got the idea to become a novelist, it took me five years to teach myself the craft and finish my first book," Brenda says. But she sold that book, and the rest is history. Her novels have made the New York Times, USA Today and Borders/Waldenbooks bestseller lists and won many awards, including three Rita nominations, the Book Buyer's Best, the Book Seller's Best and the National Reader's Choice Award.

Brenda and her husband, Ted, live in Sacramento and are proud parents of five children--three girls and two boys. When she's not spending time with her family or writing, Brenda is usually working on her annual fund-raiser for diabetes research--an online auction held on her Web site ( every May. Brenda has raised over $1.6 million to date.
