Fara Bellamont has been back in society for a year after leaving Cluny Abbey, where her uncle sent her long ago. When he chooses a suitor for her for marriage, she fears that she will be forced to marry a stranger and live a miserable life.
But, Fara finds herself thrust into an adventure of a lifetime when unforeseen circumstances cause her to place her trust in a strange man for protection. His intervention not only saves her, but puts her in an even more compromising position.
Grant Hill, a trading captain, is enchanted by the young heiress not only because of her beauty, but because she is hardly conventional. Underneath her ladylike exterior lies a tigress. Grant cannot help but offer his protection as she is in need and he is far from immune from her charms.
Fara just never bargained on the passion that she feels for Grant Hill. As events unfold, she must decide whether her desires and the dictates of her heart should trump the rules of society in this exciting tale.

I'm not usually into historical romance, but this one was very intriguing. Grant, the captain, was sexy and compelling even though he was arrogant. Fara was a woman I admire for her spirit and stubbornness in a time when women and their ideas were considered unimportant. The love they shared was intense and beautiful. The plot was interesting with twist and turns. All in all, a very beautiful piece of work! I can't wait to read more of this author's works.
