#1 New York Times bestselling author Johanna Lindsey returns to the dazzlingly passionate world of the Malorys, an aristocratic family of rakehell adventurers and spirited ladies, in a thrilling new tale of unbridled desires.
James Malory sets sail for America to honor a promise he made to his in-laws: His daughter, Jacqueline, will have her come-out in America. Judith and Jacqueline Malory are not simply cousins; they are inseparable best friends. Refusing to miss Jacqueline's come-out in Connecticut, Judith convinces her parents to let her delay her London debut by a few weeks so she can accompany her cousin. Neither girl intends to fall in love during her first season, but Judith's plans are overturned when aboard ship she comes face-to-face with the ghost who has been haunting her dreams.
Unknown to the Malorys, deckhand Nathan Tremayne is a smuggler with a noose around his neck. Determined to carry out a covert mission in America that could gain him a pardon, Nathan senses that beautiful Judith Malory is trouble. Somehow the minx knows his secret - and now she's blackmailing him into doing her bidding. While passions can soar on the high seas, Nathan knows this aristocratic beauty is merely amusing herself with a scoundrel like him.
When the unthinkable happens in Connecticut, and the elder Malorys' hands are tied, Nathan takes command of a dire situation. Captaining his own ship, he turns the tables on Judith as he steers them into some intense Caribbean heat, where he will fight with all his mettle to win the right to her heart.

Fun easy read
I would listen to this book again as it is fun easy listen.
Very much in the same vein as the other Malory books if you enjoyed those then chances are you will enjoy this one too.
She is an odd choice of narrator for this book as all of the main characters and most of the other characters are English, and as she is an American and her English accent is not very convincing, and therefore it feels a little out of place.
Liked the book, very fun and unchallenging this book is good if you want a light, beach read type of book. If you have read other Malory books then lots of previous characters show up which is nice, although I woul say you need to have read the previous books to enjoy this one.
