This must be an early Robards...not one of her best but an interesting read none-the-less. Given the results of current Genetic Genealogy the premise of this book....wealthy white female falls for good looking male who turns out to have a trace of black blood...isn't so much fiction as fiction imitating real life!
Joss San Pietro was raised a gentleman but was cruelly betrayed. Held captive and enslaved, the proud man's fate now rests in the gentle hands of an extraordinary lady -- Lilah Remy, a beautiful pampered daughter of privilege. For a strange destiny has cast them together on tempestuous seas, and shipwrecked and alone they must courageously face desperate trials and dangerous truths -- and a bold, forbidden love that can only blossom in paradise.
