For years, Lady Gwynn has kept the ultimate secret from her long-time love Trevin McBain after their singular night of forbidden passion -- she has raised their son in the home of his long time enemy. But when the boy is suddenly accused of murder, Lady Gwynn will do anything to protect him, including marrying a scheming new suitor she does not love. Now only Trevin's return can save his son, rescue Gwynn from an unjust marriage, and rekindle their unbreakable bond of undying love.
Accused of a horrific crime, Sheena was forced to flee her home at Castle Ogof, her heart and her mind tormented by what she had seen. With no one to turn to for help, she went aboard the Dark Sapphire as a stowaway, seeking deliverance from the hell that pursued her. Captain Keegan had no need for the love of a woman, not since watching his father lose everything -- including his very life -- over love's folly. Wary of his father's mistakes, Keegan vowed never to allow his heart's passion to outweigh his mind's cold calculations. Discovered by the ship's crew and brought before Captain Keegan, Sheena knew she was done for. No rogue could resist the massive bounty on her head. But she had met this dark captain before -- in another time and place -- and now she sees the shadowy sapphire than ties them together reflecting in his deep blue eyes. Suddenly a hot desire is reborn and they must run for their lives.
