For my sister-in-law, Lawree, and her newest joy, Natasha Kealanoheaakealoha Howard
Chapter One 1818, London Georgina Anderson held her spoon up backward, placed one of the pared-down radishes from her plate in the bowl of the spoon, pulled the tip back, and shot the radish across the room.
Her heart trampled and torn, innocent Georgina Anderson was desperate to return home to America. Leaving her sorrows on England's shores, she defiantly boarded the "gentleman's ship" Maiden Anne disguised as a cabin boy--never dreaming she'd be forced into intimate servitude to the irrepressible rake Captain James Malory.
A handsome ex-pirate, the black sheep of a proud and tempestuous family, Malory swore no woman alive would entice him into matrimony. But on the high seas, he would be bested by a high-spirited beauty whose love of freedom and adventure rivaled his own... and by an inescapable tidal wave of passion that threatened to engulf them both.
Heartsick and desperate to return home to America, Georgina Anderson boards the Maiden Anne disguised as a cabin boy, never dreaming she'll be forced into intimate servitude at the whim of the ship's irrepressible captain, James Mallory.
The black sheep of a proud and tempestuous family, the handsome ex-pirate once swore no woman alive could entice him into matrimony. But on the high seas his resolve will be weakened by an unrestrained passion and by the high-spirited beauty whose love of freedom and adventure rivals his own.
