The Dragon Tamer, Jane Bonander -- Once in awhile, a woman must fight...Widowed at age twenty-one, Eleanor Rayburn is left homeless and penniless. She is dismayed to learn that before his death her husband sold his shares in the ship. In her search for the company that now controls the whaler, she encounters the handsome and arrogant owner, a man with a flagrant dragon tattooed on his torso, who greets her with cold disdain. And a man must win...Dante Templeton, a marine naturalist, charms women easily but cares for none. Onboard the St. Louis, Dante suffered regular whippings and his brother was lost at sea-an accident for which Dante blamed the ship's cruel captain. Now, twenty years later, when his enemy's widow comes looking for the return of her husband's ship, he impedes her at every turn. Although Dante knows a secret about Eleanor's late husband that would certainly hurt her, he now realized that to destroy this vibrant, passionate woman would mean destroying himself.
