Betrothed to the son of her father's Spanish friend, Mistress Deborah Stirling is taken captive by a roguish privateer. Nicholas, Marquis de Vere, has vowed vengeance on her future husband, and plans to use Deborah to lure the murderous Spaniard from his hiding place. Revenge was never so sweet — or so tempting. . .
At first furious, Deborah soon finds herself unable to resist her handsome captor's charms. Swept away by their passion, she can't help but fall in love. But what if it's a lie? Could it be part of Nicholas's revenge to seduce her, then be rid of her?
