HE LIBERATED HER SENSES Headstrong Shona Cameron would never accept that she, the favorite daughter of a feared Scottish clansman, was now a lowly indentured servant in the Colonies. Certain that her flaw good looks would snare her a rich husband, the amber-eyed lass fled her master - only to be captured by a marauding Spanish privateer! She struggled against his lean, hard body; she fought the passion he made her feel.
But as much as she yearned for freedom, the hotblooded young woman had gone too far to escape the prison of his arms. SHE MADE HIM LOSE CONTROL Aristocratic Stephen de Larra just wanted to enjoy the women and the wages of war. Then the petite blonde colonial he caught in a raid aroused his lust - and all he wanted was to desert his ship and bed the fiery vixen.
He hated her for distracting him from his duty; he detested her for the tenderness she stirred within him. But once they were alone in his cabin, the arrogant priate became a slave to his desire, submitting to the unbridled love and unrestrained delight he found with his Proud Captive.
These are five superb stories, provocative and entertaining in the best sense of these overused words—that is, they seduce the interest, sink grapples in the mind and gut, and end with a sense of shock—the shock of being returned to a real world one had entirely forgotten. As to what they are about, perhaps the closest one can come is to say they are about dedication—of a man, of a god, of the creations of man. Finally, they leave one richer, more thoughtful. And argumentative. They do not go away. Which proves that Lester has once again worked his magic." - From publisher's introduction
