(From the publisher):
A lady's plight...
Lady Rhea Claire, fair and flawlessly beautiful daughter of a Duke, was stolen from her father's house -- and shipped to the colonies as a slave.
A captain's daring...
Dante Leighton, who squandered a Marquis's inheritance in his dissolute youth, pursued his fortune at sea -- and found his destiny in the amethyst eyes of a fascinating woman.
A storm of desire.
They sailed the West Indian isles, discovering fabulous riches... and the raptures of a love more precious than treasure. On a secluded shore, in an idyll apart from the world, they surrendered themselves to ecstasy. But on returning to England, their joy was beset by a tempest of scandal, spite and murderous peril -- which was the end of their happiness, or the dark before the radiance of their love.
