NOT QUITE MARRIED
Originally published in 1983 as Rapture's Ransom, this slightly updated version still retains the qualities of a sweeping 1980s classic adventure romance.
To escape an arranged marriage to a ruthless Frenchman, headstrong Brien Weston finds a man willing to marry her for money.
After rejecting his father's title and money, Aaron Durham needs the funds Brien offers to build his shipping company. He agrees to marry her with no strings attached, but one night of passion will never be enough.
Brien has no idea that the marriage ceremony is a sham or that her father will still force her to wed the man he chose. But the groom is killed, and Brien is free to travel to America on business for her father. She books passage on a ship owned by the one man she never thought she'd see again: Aaron.
What simmered between them explodes into full-blown passion aboard the ship—and even when they reach America. Their newfound love must survive deceit, ruthless schemes and misunderstanding.
Fast-paced, sensual and action-packed, Krahn's novel moves from the estates of England to the rough seas to the bustling new American cities.
Krahn holds your attention and demonstrates why she is a reader favorite. Her intelligent characters, logical plotlines and witty dialogue make this oldie but goody irresistible once again. SENSUAL (Reissue, Sep., 356 pp., $6.99)
