Book description
The kiss

The day Rodney Hawkhurst rode into her father's grand estate, Lizbeth Gillingham was but a wild young girl of eighteen, red hair unkempt, dirt on her apron, and an archer's bow in her hand.

Then Rodney rudely took her in his arms and kissed her lips, and everything changed. No longer did she dread the idea of being a woman and a fine lady. Suddenly she forgot her girlhood rebellion and longed only for one thing--Rodney Hawkhurst.

But Rodney had not come to see Sir Gillingham about Lizbeth. He had come to borrow money for a daring sea voyage, and to ask for the hand of Phillida, Lizbeth's elegant sister. Lizbeth tried to forget about Rodney Hawkhurst --until she discovered Phillida's dread secret. Then everything changed....

Then wearing men's clothes, she goes aboard his ship, but he discovered her. Can she win his heart?

Bold Romance and Tingling Suspense by one of the Great Romantic Writers of All Time

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:25:50 -0400)

(see all 2 descriptions)

Having sailed with Sir Francis Drake, swashbuckling privateer Rodney Hawkhurst yearns for a galleon of his own with which to plunder the Spanish Main in the name of Queen Elizabeth. Seeking investment from Sir Harry Gillingham, he has a fleeting encounter with an elfin, tomboyish golden-red-haired beauty, Sir Harry's youngest daughter Lizbeth, and is bewitched by her limpid green eyes. Yet it is fair and golden-haired elder sister Phillida with whom he first falls in love...Granted his finances on the condition that Sir Harry's weak, possibly even traitorous son sails with him in the hope that the mission will make him a man, Rodney embarks on a voyage of blood, honour, and glory in which he gains great riches but loses his heart, not once, but twice. The risks are great but so are the rewards: wealth beyond compare and, as Rodney finally discovers, a greater, deeper, more passionate love than he ever imagined possible.… (more)
