A Risk and a Consequence
Julianna Burton never imagined she’d be tied naked to a ship captain’s bed. She was simply trying to escape her father’s terrible plans and find her love Jeffrey, who went to Portsmouth to seek his fortune so they could marry.
But now she must pay the price the captain requires for passage—her body as his entertainment. His only concession is that he will leave her maidenhead, the one thing she can save for Jeffrey. Yet as Drew shows her sinful pleasures she’s never imagined, her temptation grows…
Captain’s Private Journal, May 30, 1790
My heart pounds hard in my chest as I think of her--the lass who awaits me, naked in my cabin as I commanded. She was discovered masquerading as one of my seamen, yet I am still appalled at myself for demanding such a lewd price for her passage. But when I looked into her eyes—wide, but somehow beckoning—I was filled with a need deeper than any I’d ever known.
For her. For Julianna.
Can I truly touch her and taste her and satisfy my lust on her without taking the maidenhead meant for another she crossed an ocean to find?
I am a man of impeccable self-control—the asset that has redeemed my family and ensured I did not become my wayward father. Then, what has taken hold of me? Each moment, the urge to go to her and steal away all that belongs to another grows more irresistible. I must touch her. I must hold her. I must drive myself into her.
I must not.
