When a lady discovers stars shine even in the blackest sky.

And with her brother’s notorious reputation, it’s hard to hide in the shadows. Vane is viciously protective and threatens any man who so much as glances her way.
Only one man has the nerve to defy him. The one they call The Raven.

Where better to start his investigation than with the scoundrel who ruined her life? But Vane’s refusal to respond to his missive forces Fabian to take drastic action.
Kidnapping Lillian Sandford serves Fabian’s goal on numerous counts. Vane will have no choice but to offer his help. Marrying the chit will prove a fitting retribution. What lady wants to live on a desolate island with a crew of seafaring men? What lady wants a loveless marriage to a rogue?
