Appeared in Library Journal on 2010-06-15:
Fleeing an arranged marriage after he sees the devastating effect his greedy father's similarly manipulative schemes had on his brother, Richard Allen takes to the high seas and becomes Jean Paul, a notorious French pirate. Years later a mission takes him back to England, where he encounters Julia Miller, his fiancee since childhood. They recognize each other, and their dormant mutual hatred comes to life. Then a vicious act of treachery changes everything and sends Julia to Jean Paul's rescue and, eventually, into his arms. Verdict Combining witty banter, colorful, intriguing characters, and seductive passion, Lindsey's historical romances are legendary, and this one is no exception. Malory fans (and readers new to the series, too) will welcome this latest adventurous addition. Lindsey (A Rogue of My Own) now lives in Maine. [Ebook ISBN 978-1-4391-7690-0.] (c) Copyright 2010.

Main Description
Nine years ago, Richard Allen fled England and his controlling father. Determined to live his own life, he took to the sea and settled in the Caribbean, joining a band of treasure-hunting pirates and adopting the persona of a carefree, seductive Frenchman named Jean Paul to guard the secrets of his past. When he slips back into England to carry out an urgent task, Richard becomes infatuated with a married woman, Georgina Malory. But his reckless attempt to woo Georgina at a masked ball turns out to be the worst mistake of his life because it brings him face-to-face with another beautiful woman. Thrilled that her solicitors have finally come up with a way to free her from her betrothal contract to the Earl of Manford’s son who abandoned her years ago, heiress Julia Miller is ready for the marriage mart and hopes to find that perfect someone at her friend Georgina’s ball. Charmed by a masked Frenchman who gives her her first kiss, she can’t help but pursue this mysterious man — until she makes a shocking discovery. Now, to avoid falling into a ruthless nobleman’s trap, Julia must enter a risky, intimate charade with a man she never believed she could love.
