Bonnie Meadow Publishing LLC
New York Times bestselling author Andrea Kane delivers blockbuster historical romantic suspense so electrifying that readers are clamoring for her stories. But her extraordinary ability to intertwine desire, adventure, history, and true love has always left readers with the desire to look deep into their own hearts. Lady Alexandria Cassel scorned London's frivolous social whirl, seeking adventure as a stowaway aboard a merchant ship. Drake Barrett was the vessel's powerful captain—and a cynical duke who disdained a noble's shallow life. At sea he revealed neither his origins nor his wealth, and to Alexandria he was simply a man who made her cool reserve fly with the winds, whose desire for her was as wild as the ocean they sailed. Caught in the crossfire of war, they were shipwrecked on an idyllic island, where they tasted perfect passion and tenderness. But Drake dreaded the day of their rescue—when his love would discover that the virile man she adored was at the pinnacle of the aristocracy she despised. Hardly did they suspect the base treachery that would soon threaten them, and the dangers each would brave to forever join their hearts and lives!
