An American spy with a British birth, Adam Trent, the Duke of Cornwall, is consumed with gathering information to use against England’s navy. But, despite the intrigues of war, the mystery of the lovely young woman washed ashore near his Cornwall estate is one he cannot resist. With the ragged remains of a treasure map concealed in her chemise and no memory of who she is and how she got there, the dark beauty is an alluring puzzle he must solve.
Fleeing to America aboard Adam’s ship, the two cannot deny all that they feel in each other’s embrace. But the shadow of war and a scandalous connection to an infamous pirate loom like a powder keg over their dreams of love–a love each will risk everything to keep alive…

FIVE STARS! Wow! Nothing else really needs to be said. This story has mystery, suspense, action, and (of course) romance. I honestly do not see how the author managed to put all of that (and more) in one novel, yet she has! Both the hero and heroine are strong characters who complement each other. The more I learned about each, the more intrigued I became. I cannot recommend this title highly enough. ***** Detra Fitch Huntress Reviews
