Nine years ago, Richard Allen fled England and his controlling father. Determined to live his own life, he took to the sea and settled in the Caribbean, joining a band of treasure-hunting pirates and adopting the persona of a carefree, seductive Frenchman named Jean Paul to guard the secrets of his past. When he slips back into England to carry out an urgent task, Richard becomes infatuated with a married woman, Georgina Malory. But his reckless attempt to woo Georgina at a masked ball turns out to be the worst mistake of his life because it brings him face-to-face with another beautiful woman. Thrilled that her solicitors have finally come up with a way to free her from her betrothal contract to the Earl of Manford’s son who abandoned her years ago, heiress Julia Miller is ready for the marriage mart and hopes to find that perfect someone at her friend Georgina’s ball. Charmed by a masked Frenchman who gives her her first kiss, she can’t help but pursue this mysterious man — until she makes a shocking discovery. Now, to avoid falling into a ruthless nobleman’s trap, Julia must enter a risky, intimate charade with a man she never believed she could love.

Johanna Lindsey is one of the most popular authors of romantic fiction, with over sixty million copies of her novels sold. World renowned for her novels of “first-rate romance” (New York Daily News), Lindsey is the author of forty-three previous bestselling novels, many of which have been #1 New York Times bestsellers. Lindsey lives in Maine with her family.From AudioFile:
Laural Merlington has narrated many of Lindsey's historical romances--including several of the Malory stories. Here Merlington portrays 21-year-old Julia Miller, heiress to a merchant empire who is looking for love. One can sense a woman full of strength and determination beneath her proper demeanor. Richard Allen is a deep-voiced pirate with a voice full of amusement and excitement. At first, Merlington's narration sounds a bit uneven, with Julia and her best friend, Georgina Malory, sounding more like children than adult women. But Merlington quickly settles into a rhythm, creating voices of more depth and character and navigating seamlessly among the variety of English and American accents.
