On the way to marry a prince in a castle a lady should never:
- Bribe an infuriatingly arrogant and undeniably irresistible ship captain,
- Let him kiss her senseless on a beach,
- Battle assassins at his side, or
- Exchange wedding vows with him, even under the direst circumstances.
But daring, determined Arabella Caulfield isn’t just any lady. And Luc Westfall is no ordinary shipmaster. He’s the new duke of Lycombe, and to defeat a plot that could destroy his family he must have an heir. Now he knows just the woman for the job… and he’s not above seduction to turn this would-be princess into a duchess.
