Little did she suspect her fears would become reality when Wilkes once again threatened her. But her beloved Michael was there to save her ... to turn her overwhelming terror to tingling desire -- and a love that was now free to flower like a wild blossom ...
I enjoyed this book. It is the final story of a group of men who live in San Francisco. I like the main characters and how they resolve their moral situations. These books make me wonder how I lived during that period in history.
Saint Morris first meets Juliana Dupres on the island of Maui when he is a very young doctor, just landed off a whaler, and she is the fourteen-year-old daughter of an impossibly puritanical minister. When he leaves maui he takes her girl's heart with him.
When Saint sees Juliana again it is four years later and she is being sold in a Barbary Coast slave auction in San Francisco. He saves her, then returns her to her parents on Maui.But there is no welcome home for Juliana. She is an outcast, reviled by her family, considered no better than a prostitute.
What is Saint to do? He does what any honorable man would do--he marries her and takes her back to San Francisco. He likes to think of himself as her protector and her brother. Juliana has other ideas. Now their adventures begin. In Jade Star you will see again the full cast of characters from the other San Francisco novels.
