Il capitano rinnegato Ryan Coleraine è convinto ad accompagnare l’avventurosa famiglia Raveneau nella Londra dell’Età della Reggenza, in modo da poter fare da spia per conto degli Stati Uniti durante la Guerra del 1812. Il beffardo Coleraine deve prendere il posto del loro figlio, che si trova nelle Indie Occidentali, e fingersi un damerino. Lindsay Raveneau, una giovane studiosa, bella e indipendente, si ritrova con un ‘fratello’ che la provoca e la stimola in modo molto inquietante…
Pericolo, intrigo e passioni proibite si intensificano mentre Ryan e Lindsay portano avanti il loro ardito inganno negli eleganti salotti della buona società della Reggenza. Ad aumentare la tensione sono i genitori di Lindsay – André e Devon da Tempesta d’argento – che si ritrovano costretti a tenere d’occhio la figlia e suo ‘fratello’ sotto il loro stesso tetto!
Newport heiress Catherine Beasley Parrish has been groomed all her life to marry an English duke. However, when she meets Adam Raveneau, the latest in a long line of Raveneau rakes and a newly created viscount, Cathy awakens to a destiny worth fighting for.
Although Raveneau insists that he is not marriage material, he is in desperate need of funds to restore Tempest Hall, his crumbling family estate on Barbados. And when Cathy begs him to save her from the toad-like duke her mother intends her to marry, Adam realizes that they may be able help each other.
Following a passionate honeymoon voyage on the high seas, Cathy and Adam arrive at their island home to find legends of pirate treasure and face the realities of their complicated marriage of convenience.
Can two people who wed for all the wrong reasons discover that a lasting love is the greatest treasure of all?
"TEMPEST is Cynthia Wright at her best, and I savored every delightful page! I was swept away by sinfully sexy Adam Raveneau, wondering how he and Cathy could ever untangle their problems, and thrilled to find myself in the midst of adventures with pirates, buried treasure, and a romantic abduction. I believe Cynthia Wright will make a lifelong fan out of every person who reads TEMPEST.”~ Lauren Royal, Bestselling Author of AMETHYSTRakes & Rebels: The Raveneau Family series:
