Loosely connected to Penelope and Prince Charming and The Mad, Bad Duke, Ashley's latest delicious tale captures the spirit of the era with humor and passion. The delightful repartee and slight paranormal elements add to this enchanting nonstop read.

After his brother's death on the battlefield, a guilt-ridden Egan McDonald wanders the globe instead of returning home. He ends up in Nvengaria, where he's befriended by the royal family, and the young Princess Zarabeth falls in love with him.

Years later, when her life is in danger, Zarabeth's father sends her to Egan in Scotland. Her ship is wrecked in a storm, and Egan searches for her. In his mind he hears her calling to him and he finds her clinging to a rock. That's only the beginning of their adventures as her enemies try to kill her, an ancient curse must be fulfilled and they try to evade debutantes, matchmaking family members, kidnapping and battles to find love on their own.
