#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.
James Malory sets sail for America to honor a promise he made to his in-laws: His daughter, Jacqueline, will have her come-out in America. Judith and Jacqueline Malory are not simply cousins; they are inseparable best friends. Refusing to miss Jacqueline's come-out in Connecticut, Judith convinces her parents 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 Judith'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 beautiful Judith Malory is trouble. Somehow the minx knows his secret - and now she's blackmailing him into doing her bidding. 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 Judith as he steers them into some intense Caribbean heat, where he will fight with all his mettle to win the right to her heart.

Loved the Old Lindsey, her new stuff ... yawn
I hate the new story formula of I see you, I fall instantly in love, I have sex with you, and flirt with you, and you are a criminal, but who cares, you are sexy, so let's jump in bed despite very little interaction, with most of the story of who is avoiding who, so not building attraction, rather, lust at first sight. oh yeah, let's through in a little of a story.
I loved the books from the 90s that coined the term, "everyone loves a Lindsey." If those books, like Once a Princess or any of the Viking stories were on audible, I'd by them in an instant.
none - it was all so flirt, sex, flirt, sex, without any real story line despite the very rich characters already in the story like, George, Tony, etc.
way too much a story based on the modern day version of casual sex flirt, flirt, he's hot, let's hook up. you already have great characters - Judith is a real disappointing character painted as a modern day, air head, slutty, casual sex character. that's not why I read historical romance
please go back to the formula that made me fall in love with Johanna Lindsey books. This is not it.
