Jade Star, the final novel of the Star series, first appeared in May 1987. Its protagonist, Saint Morris, is fascinating, honorable, and sexy—the perfect hero.
Saint first meets Juliana DuPres on the island of Maui when he is a very young doctor, just landed off a whaler, and she is the thirteen-year-old daughter of an impossibly puritanical minister. When Saint leaves Maui he takes the girl’s heart with him, but he doesn’t see her again until six years later in San Francisco—when she is being sold in a slave auction. He saves her, returning her to her parents on Maui. But there is no welcome home for Juliana. She is an outcast, reviled by her family, considered no better than a prostitute. What is Saint to do? He does what any honorable man would do—he marries her and takes her back to San Francisco. He considers himself her protector and her brother. But Juliana has other ideas. Now their adventures begin.
