#1 New York Times bestselling author Julie Garwood takes breathless sensuality to thrilling heights in this unforgettable adventure of passion and intrigue.
The Emerald flew across the seas, carrying the pirate Pagan—despised by the ton whose riches he plundered, and beloved by the poor whose plight was eased by his gifts.
The Marquess of Cainewood vows to hunt down the pirate wretch in revenge for his brother's death. But when Jade, an enchanting vision of rippling red hair and eyes of jewel-green, appears at his door to beg desperately for his protection, the Marquess agrees to keep her safe from the villains who want her dead.
Jade is infuriating, exasperating, and gorgeous. No woman has ever befuddled him so, nor so deeply aroused his desire. But as Jade answers Caine's knowing caresses with an innocent, wild abandon, they are drawn into a web of treachery that will test the very heart of their love...

Great characters, interesting plot!
I love this book! I have read hundreds of historical romance over the years and this is by far one of my top 3. I highly recommend this to fellow readers who like a strong "alpha" type male character. The female character has so much personality as well. She gives the male character, Caine, a "run for his money". And together, their dynamic creates beautiful fireworks. Their clashes are delightfully funny and charming. In addition to well fleshed out characters, is the intricately suspenseful plot. It has you hooked from the first chapter. One thing i absolutely love about this book is the originality and cleverness of the plot. Garwood does a great job of writing "outside the box" with this one. It has the reader in suspense, as well as laughing, until the end. Recommend that you read the first book in this series before starting this one. I believe it's "Lyon's Lady ".
I loved this book. At first I thought it wasn't going to be as good as the others but I was wrong!! A great read, I would definitely recommend this book.
I love all of this author's historical romances. They have a perfect combination of warmth, adventure, and humor.
