PLEASURES OF A TEMPTED LADY
Readers have been eagerly awaiting this sequel to Confessions of an Improper Bride, in order to finally uncover the truth about Meg Donovan’s “death.” Haymore creates a highly satisfying answer, drawing the reader in with wonderfully realistic characters, adventure, passion and unexpected plot twists while crafting another delightful entry in the Donovan series.
Meg Donovan spent years as the hostage of a ruthless pirate, and now she’s finally escaped with a little boy, Jake. They’re adrift in a small craft when Captain William Langley rescues them. Will cannot believe the woman before him is his long-lost love. Meg carries the emotional scars of her captivity and refuses to risk Will and Jake’s lives, for she knows her captor wants revenge for her stealing Jake away. Will vows to never lose Meg again. Bringing her back to England opens the door to scandal, grave danger and dark secrets that could destroy them all — unless Meg has the strength to fight for her love and her family.
