Ruined by a lord purely as a means to exact revenge on her brother, Lady Lillian Sandford has given up all hope of ever finding love. The two years spent abroad did nothing to quell the gossips. And with her brother’s notorious reputation, it’s hard to hide in the shadows. Vane is viciously protective and threatens any man who so much as glances her way.
Only one man has the nerve to defy him. The one they call The Raven.
After inheriting an estate on the verge of bankruptcy, Fabian Darcy, Baron Ravenscroft, made his fortune sailing the high seas. Haunted by the death of his sister, he lives far away from the society he detests, in a castle on an island off the Devonshire coast. But when he receives information that his sister may not have perished in the shipwreck, the search is on to find his missing sibling. Where better to start his investigation than with the scoundrel who ruined her life? But Vane’s refusal to respond to his missive forces Fabian to take drastic action.
Kidnapping Lillian Sandford serves Fabian’s goal on numerous counts. Vane will have no choice but to offer his help. Marrying the chit will prove a fitting retribution. What lady wants to live on a desolate island with a crew of seafaring men? What lady wants a loveless marriage to a rogue?
Regency historical romance of approx 70,000 words.

Has become my FAVORITE book!
Mystery, heart-felt emotions, true love, and passion are interspersed throughout the story with humor, danger, suspense, and lots of action, making it an absolute page turner. The HEA is both heart-felt and romantic.
The plot will keep you mesmerized, thrilled, and exhilarated. The characters are the most "human", multi-dimensional, emotion-invoking (of all kinds) I have read.
I cannot over emphasize how much you will enjoy this OUTSTANDING book!
Liisa Ivary narrated and did an admiral job of bringing out the emotion in the book.
I received an Audible copy, and after listening to it (TWICE!), I am pleased to voluntarily give this review with my honest opinion.

This was a great story that grabbed me from the beginning. Lillian has a lot of past to overcome that makes her undesirable as a wife. I loved her strength of character through all her hardships. Fabian has so many layers to his character and I loved finding out each layer. When the two came together the sparks flew. I enjoyed how they parried with one another. The narrator does a wonderful job throughout the book. She captures the moods of the characters and the situations that they find themselves in. I recommend this book to those that love adventures and passionate love scenes.

A great series. I'm loving it all.
I listened to this book in almost one sitting. I couldn't put it down.
A Regency series wouldn't be the same without at least one pirate and kidnapping story, although this one takes place in a castle on an island rather than on board the pirate ship itself. The author made great use of the setting and was able to weave lots of drama, suspense and intrigue into the story.
Although the romance was initiated by a kidnapping Lillian and Fabian are childhood friends who have feelings for one another. Their romance was quite sweet. Lillian has had quite a tragic past and I liked how Fabian had her best interests at heart even if he initially didn't go about things properly.
Lillian's brother Vane has me completely intrigued. I can't wait to read about him and Estelle in the next book.
I voluntarily reviewed a gifted copy.
