Kate Gilbert is a woman without a past — or even a passport — to tie her down. Raised by smugglers, she lives by her wits, relishing the sense of freedom that only the life of the open sea can provide. All she knows of love she has learned from classic literature. Nothing she’s read in Shakespeare, however, could have prepared her for Beau Lantry. The brash, handsome playboy helps Kate out of a tough scrape, putting his own life on the line. Now Kate is in Beau’s debt, and as reluctant as she is to compromise her hard-won independence, she’s intrigued by the prospect of a new kind of life in the arms of this wealthy stranger. But can Beau keep Kate out of harm’s way long enough to convince her that happiness is worth leaving behind a world of ever-present danger? Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " Very trite and unrealistic. Also way too graphic on the intimacy passages for my taste. Wanted to stop reading after chapter three, but it gave me something to read on vacation. Would not recommend this to anyone. "

    " I have liked some of Iris Johansen's mysteries; this was the first romance of hers that I read. The best way to describe it is that it was plain. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maurice | 3/11/2013

    " Despite the overuse of adverbs (especially the dialog tag ones)I was entertained by the feel good romance between Kate and Beau. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kristy | 8/20/2012

    " In this book's defense, I rented it from the library via my Nook, thinking it was one of her mysteries. I was mistaken. Still, it was a painful read. (And yet I finished it. There you go.) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 7/1/2012

    " Read it on my nook - so I didn't see the cover. Didn't realize she wrote romances - it was OK. At least I finished it! "

    " Too 1980ish for me. Renee Raudman was the highlight. "

    " I think she is losing her touch. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barb | 10/13/2011

    " In the style of Johansen, Kate is a giver. Honest, true, giving of herself because it is the 'way' things are done. Everyone she meets takes and takes some more. One man one man in particular takes but only wants to give everything but himself. Not one of her best, but it is still worth the read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gamatst | 9/27/2011

    " An older series romance that stands the passing of 25 years very well in the way Linda Howard's older series romances like Midnight Rainbow do.

    The audiobook version is excellent! "
