After building a fortune amid the splendor and dangers of the China seas, American adventurer and merchant prince Gavin Elliott is sailing for London, where he intends to establish himself in the society that forced his family to leave in disgrace when Gavin was only a child. But fate intervenes on an infamous island in the East Indies when he tries to save a European woman being sold at a slave auction. By the sultan's decree, the woman can only be freed if Gavin wins her by enduring an ancient tribal challenge that may cost him his life. Yet Gavin cannot refuse to help a woman who touches his heart and soul with her indomitable courage. Alexandra Warren ventured to Australia as a young bride eager for adventure. A dozen years later she is returning home as widow and mother when a pirate attack separates her from her beloved daughter and condemns Alex to a life of servitude. Then a miracle arrives in the form of a steely-eyed Yankee captain willing to risk everything to set her free. A shocking turn of events brings an unexpected alliance with her rescuer, and Gavin and Alex arrive in London as intimate strangers joined by too many painful secrets. Yet attraction and affection soon overcome the trial of their first meeting. Until the past reaches out to change Gavin's life - and threaten the passionate love he has found with his irresistible bartered bride. Download and start listening now!

    " Book 3 and I find out that I have read this one before long ago! I liked it the best of the series and even though having the background form the previous books was nice, it was not necessary. A different plot line for a romance story!! "

    " I love Mary Jo Putney's writing. This one has some really wild adventures for the characters, but what I love best is that even in the midst of the crazy and fantastic, her characters remain real, true to themselves, and reasonable, honorable people. "

    " Wonderful hero (Mr Honourable), set in Indonesia and London, false murder charges, kidnapping, pirates, slavery, bizarre rituals, unexpected legacy. "

    " I wanted to like it...and some of it I did. However, any ONE of the obstacles the protagonists faced would have been enough conflict. As it is, the punches keep rolling in, and I started to feel detached...like watching a bad scary movie. Became inured to their issues. "

    " Great writing; great historic detail. Over the top heroine who can do anything and everything and a gobsmacked hero who worships at her feet. I like a stronger hero and a heroine with who isn't so perfect. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ruth | 1/3/2012

    " Very good. Ending a little weak but the rest of the book makes up for it. IMHO. "

    " Alex and Gavin made a great couple even tho the beginning of their relationship was very hard to read..I did enjoy the book and was glad to have found this author. "

    " Because the prologue begins saying the woman died and the man's on trial for her murder, I spent most of the book waiting for her to die. Totally ruined it for me even though I knew it would probably turn out that she didn't actually die. "
