Despite Georgina’s indifference to him and her husband James Malory’s threats to harm him, Richard is smitten. His next attempt to woo Georgina at a masked ball turns out to be a terrible mistake, because it brings him face to face with another beautiful woman.
Grown-up and sophisticated, Julia Miller, a friend of Georgina’s, is charmed by the masked Frenchman Jean Paul until she discovers he’s really her detested fiancé! Julia has hired solicitors to have Richard declared dead so she can free herself from their betrothal and move on with her life.
But when the Earl of Manford learns his son has returned and can fulfill the marriage contract, he sets in motion a chain of events that places Julia on the high seas with her fiancé - who is not merely an irresponsible nobleman but a seductive, adventure-loving pirate!

Great first summer read !
This book I was unsure about, Yet i knew that I love the others in the series so i took the gamble that this would be as good as i was hoping, IT did not disappoint me at all..
I found the story line different, 1- being for the arranged marriage that had to do with money only 2- the controlling parents. 3- The 17 year old son running away to find a life away from the controlling parent: 4- the understanding what love verses infatuation is 5- how they overcome for a happy ending..
This was one of those romances where the two main characters hate each other all growing up and how they overcome there circumstances. IT is a great summer read.. I hope that you like it as much as I did.

Ok Beach listening
I really used to love the Malory series as I first started to read regency romance waaaay back when. Lately, I sort of outgrew them. Although not in the same league as "Gentle Rougue", I found this book charming light read. Maybe because I wasn't expecting much or that I like the supporting casts especially Richard's best friend. If you are not familiar with the Malory's you might find yourself lost or loose interest. I suggest you start with "Love Only Once," "Tender Rebel," and "Gentle Rogue."
