LADY JOANNA BENTLEY has been sold by her greedy guardian to a Turkish prince. Unwilling to reconcile herself to a life of sexual servitude in a harem, she begs God to give her the courage to risk her life for freedom. Left with no options but to accept the hand of the English rogue sent to rescue her, Joanna must use cunning and guile to gain her every desire.
CAPTAIN RICHARD TREVANIAN is tired of living a lie. Ready to retire from his depraved career on the seven seas, he returns home to rebuild his crumbling castle on the Cornish coast.
