4-Stars "The powerful love between Elizabeth and Jonathan is A JOY TO BEHOLD and LIFTS READERS' HEARTS." Sensual -- Romantic Times Magazine, June, 2001
From the Publisher
Elizabeth Trent knew she was meant to marry Jonathan Hird, the dashing soldier who had miraculously returned from war, wounded but alive. And though his kisses thrilled her and his tender touch made her feel completely loved, she was leaving him at the altar. A terrible secret kept her from going through with her vows. All she could do was pray that he'd forgive her
that fate would one day bring him back to her.
Jilted and humiliated, Jonathan went to sea where a pirate's life made him bitter and cruel. Now he is back in England, where his best friend has begged him to help marry off his headstrong sister--Elizabeth Trent. At first, Jonathan refuses, but then, from the anger in his soul, he devises a plan: to find Elizabeth the worst husband in Britain
if only he can keep himself from wanting her all over again.
