Burned by Love . . .
Young, orphaned Tansy Richardson has agreed to accompany her spoiled, selfish cousin Amanda back to England — where Amanda is set to make a most memorable match! But, once the two ladies are underway, their journey turns out to be more arduous than Tansy ever imagined!
After surviving a shipwreck and being kidnapped by pirates, the two distraught travelers are finally rescued by Martin Ballard — a handsome spy for the British. Tansy’s growing affection for Martin is soon apparent to the sly and avaricious Amanda. She just can’t understand why Martin would be interested in her plain-faced cousin — and, despite her upcoming nuptials, decides to seduce him herself. Tansy’s only hope is that Martin will soon come to his senses — and accept the love she is secretly so desperate to give.
