HISTORICAL ROMANCE - ADULT CONTENT
Ella Fitzpatrick is a beautiful young lady from a wealthy family. Her mother high and well respected in social circles. Her father the best doctor money could buy. Most women her age are already married with children, however, these marriages are often loveless and arranged to benefit social status. Ella wants to marry for love and she certainly doesn't love Andrew Shapel, the most recent gentleman of high standing to propose to her, much to the approval of her matriarchal aunt who is convinced she has found Ella the best husband in high society.
Unfortunately she has sent her to her doom. Andrew may be devilishly handsome and charming on the outside but on the inside he harbours a darkness no one would suspect.
She is left for dead on a pirate ship! Falling in and out of consciousness as she is dragged to the brig and left in the darkness with nothing but the painfully vivid recollection of how she got there as company. With the crew calling for her to be thrown overboard and saying a woman on board is a curse, she realises that she is at the mercy of the captain, who doesn't take kindly to stowaways on his ship. She is petrified and prepared to die but little does she know that from the very first moment Captain Thomas Tyler lays eyes on her he finally believed in love at first sight. Placing her under his protection, his anger directed towards those who used his ship as a way to dispose of their crimes. He promises to return her to her family and hopes in time that the memories that haunt her soul will fade. One thing he wasn't prepared for, protecting her from himself.
A lady and a pirate is absurd!
