Postponing her London debut to join her cousin and best friend in America, Judith Malory meets deckhand Nathan Tremayne, an undercover smuggler who would escape a death sentence.

Simon and Schuster
#1 New York Times bestselling author Johanna Lindsey returns to the dazzlingly passionate world of the Malorys, an aristocratic family of rakehell adventurers and spirited ladies, in a thrilling new tale of unbridled desires.

Judith and Jacqueline Malory are not simply cousins; they are inseparable best friends. Refusing to miss Jacqueline's come-out in Connecticut, Judy convinces her parents, James and Georgina, to let her delay her London debut by a few weeks so she can accompany her cousin. Neither girl intends to fall in love during her first Season. But Judy's plans are overturned when aboard ship she comes face-to-face with the ghost who has been haunting her dreams.

Unknown to the Malorys, deckhand Nathan Tremayne is a smuggler with a noose around his neck. Determined to carry out a covert mission in America that could gain him a pardon, Nathan senses that Judith is trouble. Somehow the minx knows his secret&;and now she's blackmailing him into doing her bidding&;teaching her how to climb the rigging and how to kiss. While passions can soar on the high seas, Nathan knows this aristocratic beauty is merely amusing herself with a scoundrel like him.

When the unthinkable happens in Connecticut and the elder Malorys' hands are tied, Nathan takes command of a dire situation. Captaining his own ship, he turns the tables on Judy and steers them into uncharted waters, where a lady might just throw caution to the wind and give her heart to a scoundrel.

After a slow start (for me), the pace picked up with a mesmerizing journey by ship from Britain to America and beyond. Handsome Nathan Tremayne joins the crew on the luxury Malory family yacht, with secrets of his own. Judith is drawn to the man despite her suspicions that he is a smuggler. Can she trust him that he is searching for his own stolen ship? How can he find it, when the thieves are known to refit and resell them as their own builds? Who can anyone trust, when so much goes wrong? Warning: some violence.

She's one of my favourite authors. Not much on the intricate sex like Lisa Kleypas' books, but she has more of a romance feel rather than the graphic explanations which we can use our own imagination. A nice story and good read. Love the pirate ship sagas.
