Felicity Barrow needs a respected husband with a title or money. Her family sent her abroad to escape scandal and make a proper match, but she finds the honorable Captain Doyle easy to speak and dance with despite their shocking introduction.
Captain Thomas Doyle vowed never to wed. He makes a generous living as a privateer and intends to buy back his former home on Sugar Hill. In order to forget his parents’ dark legacy, he’ll burn the old plantation to the ground, but he’s mistaken a commander’s sister for a pirate’s paramour, and they own it. Luckily, Miss Barrow doesn’t insist Thomas marry her, but there’s another problem: Sugar Hill is now her dowry and no longer for sale.
Can a man with a past and a woman desperate for a proper future find their happily ever after, or will family tragedy and society’s expectations prevent them from admitting—and offering—what’s hidden in their hearts?
This sweet historical romance is set in the West Indies with pirates, romance, and adventure.
