“Mac” MacTavish impulsively steals his late sister’s neglected children, only to discover it’s easier to handle a clipper in a hurricane than steer two ornery brats. What he needs is a nanny until he can take the children back to his parents in America.

Knowing herself to be too plain and large to attract a husband, Bea Cavendish has settled for a quiet life of feathering her father’s nest—until he dies, and she’s left with an estate she doesn’t know how to manage. Alone and terrified, she doesn’t know what to make of the very big, very angry man appearing at her door with two adorable hooligans in tow.

Does she take in this ill-tempered stranger and his children in exchange for learning what she needs to know? Or is she in danger that this recklessly ambitious man might teach her more about life than which fields to plant? 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“A fine job...an unlikely but heartening romance...complex, sympathetic characters...moving conclusion.”--Publishers Weekly

“All A Woman Wants is a very delightful story. Bea’s struggle to be independent is amusing, charming and inspirational, and Mac’s struggle to teach Bea makes this a terrific novel. The dialogue is sharp, witty, and intelligent. Don’t miss it.” MKN—Rendezvous

“Like Julie Garwood, Patricia Rice employs wicked wit and sizzling sensuality.” Mary Jo Putney, author No Longer a Gentleman

“Strong writing and storytelling are Ms. Rice’s trademark along with her flair for ditzy characters and a subtle sense of humor.” Joan Hammond, Romantic Times

Smuggled ashore by the kind widow Merry D'Angelo, Maria begins her new life in the colonial port city of Fremantle.
With the help of a young fisherman named Tony, she fights to find her place among a people so different to her own.
Yet danger lurks beneath the surface of the turbulent harbour waters as her past races to catch up with her; threatening her future and her friends, and forcing her to choose between her old love and the new.

A tiny taste of what's in store:

Merry bowed her head. "I understand. But what will you do? What work do you know?"
"I know fish and I know the ocean. That is all," I said forlornly. For all my hopes, I already felt lost. Her world was still painfully new to me.
"I think I can help you find a job. A job for a girl who knows fish and the ocean. But you will need a name. Your father's, your husband's...as I am Meryl D'Angelo, you must have a last name, too."
"I can't tell you," I replied. "I'd hoped..."
She laughed. "Speranza. Hope in Italian. If you won't tell me your real name, you will be Maria Speranza, the young fisherman's widow who lives in hope." She shooed me toward the door. "Go now and send the telegram. The sooner he hears you're alive, the sooner you'll be in his arms again." She squeezed past me, pulling on her gloves before donning a hat. "I need to speak to some friends to see if they can help you." Merry hurried out the front door.
I had a goal, a hope for the future. And a name to go with it. Maria Speranza, the widow who lived in hope.
And for the first time, I did.

A mysterious castaway. A Scottish hero determined to protect her. Can they survive the storm?

Cast adrift on the Indian Ocean, Maria carries a terrible secret. Wherever she goes, death soon follows, and she's powerless to prevent it.

William McGregor boarded the SS Trevessa in search of adventure, but he gets more than he bargained for when he saves the mysterious Maria from the sea. She can't tell them her tragic tale, so the superstitious sailors make up their own stories - and some would sacrifice her to the waves to save themselves from the coming storm.

When the sharks start circling and the storm closes in, are sirens more than just a myth?

A tiny taste of what's in store:

My defiance was futile. What did it get me? A small raft drifting across the Indian Ocean, with nothing but the sound of waves and the smell of salt and coal-smoke.

Smoke meant a ship. I was saved.

I squinted into the sunlight, but the waves hid the vessel from me. Maybe I was looking the wrong way. I didn't have the strength to sit up and see.

Rough hands seized me. I struggled, but my weakness won.

Blue eyes drifted above, the same colour as the ocean below. A tangle of wiry seaweed obscured the rest of the man's face.

"It's all right, lass. I'll take care of you."

Darkness took me first.
