A wealthy shipping magnate, Morgan St. James, poses as a lighthouse keeper in Cornwall to discover whether his friend's death was an accident or a crime committed by scuttlers. The keeper of the inn, Miranda Tallant, is from a family of smugglers--is her family at the root of the deaths and shipwrecks? A simple, enjoyable read.
(My favorite line from the back cover: "From his locks of midnight silk to his well-muscled chest rippling with unchecked power, Miranda realized at once that this man was no ordinary lighhouse keeper." Gee, you think? But the book is better written than the publisher's blurb.)
Morgan was the most virile man Miranda had ever seen. She realized at once this was no ordinary lighthouse keeper.
Bent on discovering the blackguards responsible for his friends death, Morgan didn't expect to be caught up in the stormy sea of Miranda's beautiful turquiose eyes. The lovely widow consumed his every waking thought and dream with an all consuming passion. FOr while he could not abandon his duty to his friend and his family, he knew that he could not rest until Miranda's heart was his.
Miranda Tallant wondered who Morgan St James really was. Was he truly disinherited or had he come to investigate her family's smuggling? Morgan was bent on discovering who was responsible for his friend's death. But soon Morgan was consumed by passion for the lovely widow and he could not forget the stormy sea of Miranda's eyes.
