A lovestruck lady charms the duke of her dreams during an expedition on the high seas in this sexy, swashbuckling novel from USA Today bestselling author Bronwen Evans.
Alexander Sylvester Bracken, Duke of Bedford, has a mission: sail to the Mediterranean and track down Lady Hestia Cary’s missing father. It is a straightforward task, but for two rather vexing complications. First, the sea holds painful memories; second, for her own safety, Hestia is to accompany him. As Alex battles the demons of his past, he must also resist Hestia’s surprisingly skillful attempts at seduction. After all, Alex has sworn to leave her untouched, and he intends to honor that vow—until he can properly ask the Earl’s blessing.
Ever since His Grace rescued Hestia from the arms of a Turkish pirate six long years ago, her heart has belonged to Alex. So when he agrees to help find her father, Hestia is thrilled. Although Alex tries to hide it, there’s passion in his eyes—and a frisson of desire in the air—whenever they meet. On board ship, miles from home, Alex won’t be able to deny her any longer. But with scoundrels lying in wait, she may not live to tell the tale of her conquest.

Alex sighed. “I can’t take the risk that he’s bluffing.” He turned to Jacob and put a hand on his shoulder. “If he double-crosses us and doesn’t release Hestia, then you must follow us and we have to escape before Murad reaches Bodrum.” Jacob looked at him and shook his head. “Jacob, listen to me. Make sure the Angelica is no more than half a day behind Murad. It’s my only chance.”

“As plans go, this is a terrible one,” Jacob said. “He’ll see us.”

“Not necessarily. The Angelica is faster. Catch up during darkness and drop back during the day.”

“It’s risky.”

“Do you have an alternative?”

Jacob flung his arms up in the air and began pacing backward and forward along the railings.

A cough from down below alerted them to the fact they were running out of time.

The two men stood staring at each other, Jacob’s face a mask of pain.

“I can’t believe he outwitted us again. I’m sorry.”

Alex pulled Jacob into a rough embrace. “Don’t be sorry; let’s just make sure that I’m not held captive as long as the last time.”

Jacob pulled out of his hold and nodded. “I won’t let you down. If you can find a way off that ship, I’ll be there.”

As Alex swung over the side of the Angelica and began to make his way down the ropes to Murad’s boat, he called, “I’m counting on that, my friend.”
