They meet in a clash of swords, drenched in the moonlight of Britain's
rugged eastern coast: Captain Jack, his handsome features etched in silver and
shadow, his powerful physique compelling Kit Cranmer to surrender. He is her
dream lover come vividly alive, and his command of the smuggling gang is
abosolute. His all-knowing gaze penetrates her disguise as the "lad"
leader of a rival gang with frightening ease--and his punishment with kisses
leaves her maidenly modesty in tatters.
Suddenly, Kit finds she's only too delighted to explore with Jack the pleasures normally reserved for married ladies...little knowing what dangerous forces she's unleashing. For even as Kit revels in midnight gallops and cottage rendezvous, Captain Jack is laying a gentle trap that will curtail her freedom...and bind her to him with a ring, a promise...and ties of devotion and desire.
