Starts with a humorous encounter that leads to an instant connection. No sooner than barely meeting Joss becomes a slave due to the times and a crazy woman. Lilah and Joss have to overcome some pretty gigantic obstacles but it made a great story. They need to get through slavery, cholera, shipwrecks, pirates, and more plus terrible circumstances in general in order to be together. I loved every word. Another great Karen Robards book that has me wanting more! ( )

How could Lilah Renny force herself to forget Joss San Pietro? How could she deny the anguish that filled her days - or the feverish longing that tormented her nights?

He was gone, torn from her arms forever by the cruel code of her proud plantation society...and by the dark secret that ran in his blood. Soon they would marry her to another man...unless Joss returned, fulfilling his vow to possess the woman whose beauty haunted him...and whose urgent whispers had enslaved his body and his soul.
