REVENGE WAS NOT AS SWEET AS LOVE
His friend, his fiance, his family - even his name had been taken from Justin Lionheart one ill-fated dawn in a duel of honor. Now he wandered sea and shore in search of the culprit responsible for his ruin. But sweet revenge would be found at last in the arms of his enemy's alluring sister.
No man could run a plantation as well as she. No man would run her life, either, Thalia Freemont vowed, her boorish brother's wishes be damned! The resourceful belle took matters into hand, setting her sights on the mysterious Captain Lionheart, who stirred her soul and - unbeknownst to Thalia - held her fate in his hands.
