About this title: Valentine's latest scorcher follows the exploits of Garnet Sinclair, who is sold into bondage in China to the rich, dissolute devil Captain Bain Carson. Garnet firmly resolves to resist her "master" yet cannot help but succumb to his entrancing caresses and promises of endless ecstasy.
This "sold into slavery" romance is an okay read - nothing ground breaking yet also nothing really horrid. I will say the sex scenes are pretty hot!
While trying to protect her young charges in China Garnet is captured and taken to San Francisco to be sold as a slave. Bain ends up buying her on the spur of the moment, he is only in the slave auction because he is honoring his dead twin brother's final requests. He only meant to buy her to free her but Bain is drawn in by the beautiful Garnet and finds passion leading him astray in his notions.
