Sizzling with lust and love, Gentle Rogue
tells the story of a beautiful young Georgina ("Georgie") Anderson, who leaves her Connecticut home in 1818 to find her fiancÚ, who has been gone for six years. With the help of a family friend, she finds him in England -- happily married with children.
Heartbroken, Georgie is desperate to return home, but the only passage she can obtain is aboard the "gentleman's ship" Maiden Anne -- where Georgie will have to pretend to be a cabin boy. She willingly agrees to disguise her sex, but her anxiety grows when she recognizes the ship's handsome owner from a previous barroom brawl. He is Sir James Malory, the tall, blond, ex-pirate black sheep of a proud and tempestuous family. Sir James remembers Georgie, but decides not to let on.
Instead, he teases her unmercifully, across the Atlantic, asking his "boy servant" Georgie to shave his beard, wash his back and undress him -- until one star-studded night they stop their charade and succumb to desire. But their romantic adventures have only just begun...
