The fighting at Culloden nearly destroyed Alex Leslie. Once a Highland nobleman with a truly brilliant future, Alex left the battlefield with a scarred face and wounded spirit -- and a hatred of the British that still ravages his soul. As captain of a privateer bound for diamond-rich Brazil, Alex captures every British vessel he encounters -- and takes a lovely, but defiant, lady captive.
Alex has every reason to hate Jenna Campbell. The feisty Scottish lass belongs to the British-allied clan he most despises. But somewhere in the wild Brazilian jungle, his dislike gives way to fierce desire -- and the kind of love he thought he'd never find.
