His quest to win her love could cost his life.
When the wealthy family of Virginia belle Eden Sinclair sends her to London to escape the horrors of the Civil War, it isn't far enough to escape heartbreak. In a whirlwind, she is courted by the Earl of Claiborne, married-then widowed soon after her wedding. Her head hasn't even stopped spinning when the Earl's heir, dashing sea captain Raven Blade, offers the comfort of his arms.
Raven never wanted a wife, until Eden. Honor kept him from competing with the Earl for her love, but now that her marriage bed is empty, there is nothing stopping him from making her Lady Claiborne-again-and taking her home to his Jamaican plantation to shield her from the resulting gossip.
In a dangerous quest to win her heart, Raven volunteers to captain one of her father's ships, the Confederate commerce destroyer Southern Knight. Even as he risks his life, he harbors a dangerous secret. And his absence from the plantation leaves Eden-and the growing child in her belly-vulnerable to someone who would rather see her dead than take her rightful place beside the Earl of Claiborne...
Warning: Contains a dashing hero who doesn't stand on tradition, and a vulnerable young heroine who must sort through a tangle of volatile emotions-and raw desire that could teach even tropical Jamaica how to steam.
