With her raven black hair, shimmering blue eyes and breathtaking sensuality, Skye O'Malley is a woman made for love. She has countless suitors, any one of whom would do anything to be chosen by her. But Skye's future has already been determined. Following 16th-century custom in Ireland, Skye was betrothed at birth to Dom O'Flaherty, the heir to a neighboring estate. Dom's handsomeness, however, cannot mask his malevolence and lecherousness--as Skye all too quickly discovers after marrying him. She flees, returning home, where she hopes to share her life with Niall Burke, the one man who has taken her heart completely...and with whom she has shared one stolen night of blinding ecstasy. But forces are working against them Skye is kidnapped across the seas to Algiers, where she becomes the prize of a Moroccan prince. When she finally escapes to settle in England, a peaceful existence still eludes her. For her the target of jealous villainy, with her most formidable enemy Queen Elizabeth herself.
