The complication they don’t want…
Lady Katherine Kinloch survived captivity once. Now the notorious captain of her own ship, she refuses to let anyone jeopardize her hard-won freedom. But on a voyage to England to fight for her family’s endangered estate, Katherine is thrown off course when she unknowingly rescues celebrated naval captain James Warre…a man who stands for everything she despises.
The passion they desperately need…
Haunted by regret for his role in her dark past, James is determined to be more than the cold, calculating officer Katherine expects. Her seduction is his obsession, but his pride hangs in the balance if he gives in to temptation. And hiding beneath the scorching attraction between them lies a secret that could force the two apart for good.

“DeLaine keeps the pages turning in the first of a planned series that will satisfy historical romance fans.” — Publishers Weekly
“A fearless debut! Alison DeLaine pens a stand out romance.” — New York Times bestselling author Julia London
“DeLaine’s feisty, give-as-good-as-she-gets heroine shares an explosive sexual chemistry with a hero who could give Tyrone Power a run for the money. The action-packed, swashbuckling plot of this deliciously retro-flavored debut will definitely thrill readers who miss the sweeping historical romances of Kathleen Woodiwiss, Shirlee Busbee, and Laurie McBain.” — Booklist
