Jewel thief Christian De la Croix has spent his life plotting revenge against the double-crosser who left his father to die on French Guiana’s brutal island prison twenty years earlier. But when a letter comes revealing his father is aliv, Christian’s quest turns into a rescue mission. There is no one better to help him than the betrayer himself, shipbuilding magnate Edmund Montague. Christian plans to steal Edmund’s private luxury vessel to sail there, and the necklace his father paid for with his life to buy his freedom. Accidentally kidnapping the man’s spoiled daughter is just a lucky accident, and Christian enjoys the many opportunities he finds to annoy her. Unfortunately, she finds as many ways, if not more, to annoy him right back.

 

Adriana Montague prayed for a way to escape her impending marriage to an arrogant and conceited man she doesn’t love, but never expected it to come in the form of a vengeful thief who steals her ship and kidnaps her. Christian blames Adriana's father for his family’s misfortunes, and boldly claims he’s robbing her and sailing to South America! But Adriana has a few tricks up her sleeve, and though she’s glad to be granted a temporary reprieve from her wedding, she’s not about to let their voyage resemble a pleasure cruise.

About the author

Though she also writes suspense and steamy fantasy romance, Ava Bradley’s favorite books to write–and read–are those of fabled yester-year. She has a special affinity for characters she can identify with; the tomboyish heroines such as Anne of Green Gables and Laura Ingalls Wilder of Little House on the Prairie. But regardless of the genre she believes every story is better if there’s a guy who gets a girl in the end. To Ava, a book without a Happily Ever After is like a house without a roof.

 When Helena Wainwright accompanies her two young nieces and her nephew to stay at Rotherham Park with their new guardian who is their uncle, the Duke of Rotherham, she agrees to remain for six months to help the children adjust to their new life. She finds the handsome, charming Duke of Rotherham to be the most insufferable, self-opinionated, domineering and arrogant man she has ever met. Unhappily, the duke also holds an unflattering opinion of Helena. “Wayward was the only word to describe such a determined, contrary, and obstinate young woman who defied him at every turn regarding the upbringing of his wards. He would be very glad to see her go.” The Duke of Rotherham is contemplating making Miss Emily Fanshawe, a beautiful, and (everyone thinks) well-bred young woman an offer of marriage. However, Emily has terrible secrets to hide, besides having a clandestine lover. Helena discovers Emily’s secrets and does not know which way to turn. If she reveals the truth to protect theduke’s social standing, she will betray Emily, with dire consequences. Besides, the duke seems determined to marry Emily, simply to prove a point, even though his godmother, Lady Mildred Ormsby has suspicions the Fanshawes are not who they say they are! Emily’s mother is hell-bent on marrying her daughter off to a rich, preferably titled, man. She will let nothing stand in her way, even stooping to abduction and possibly murder. Can Helena win in the face of heavy odds and the machinations of a wicked schemer? And will she want the Duke of Rotherham for herself when hidden elements of his romantic past come to light?
