She wanted a stable life, a good marriage, and a family. He stole her away to the sea.
Elinor is a woman of means, who is looking forward to her arranged marriage. As the eldest of three sisters, she wants to show her siblings that love, while ideal, doesn't need to be the main component to a successful marriage. Duty to the family is more important than duty to one's self. Her best friend, Samantha, doesn't quite agree, but Sam has always been ideal and never particularly cared about making a smart match for herself.
Jaime Butler is a Scottish privateer, sailing the Seven Seas for treasure and freedom. When he gets word that his long lost sister is in the Caribbean, he rushes to obtain her and bring her back to his home in Scotland. He doesn't think he would need to take her friend as well, an obnoxious English woman who wants everything done perfectly. At least he might be able to get a good ransom out of her - not that he needs it. He's wealthy in his own right and only takes on the role of privateer because he wants the excuse to sail the seven seas, taking what he wants for the English king (the bastard).
Devon Hamilton, the HIS eyes and ears, hasn’t taken off his headset since joining his brothers. But, when Rylee Hawkins may be in trouble, the radio waves fall silent as he steps away from the command center and into the field. He soon discovers she is on a dangerous quest to find two girls who disappeared on her final FBI op.
Making a bargain, Devon agrees to help Rylee to get what he wants—her. He’ll do anything necessary to keep her safe while using all the tactics he knows to win her over. When danger comes knocking and the threat against Rylee becomes real, Devon gears up for a fight, and like their one hot night in Vegas, all bets are off.
My parents were conmen and I was their tool. I learned how to cheat, connive, and charm my way out of any circumstance. But now I’m respectable...kind of. Yeah, my life is still a lie, but that’s because I have no choice. My best friend, who’s also my boss, needs me to lie to keep our billion-dollar charity going. It’s complicated.
But all the lies are about to end. I just have to finish one final task...taking over a brewery. Easy, right?
Not so much. Because that brewery is part of a custody battle between mother and daughter. The mother owns it. The daughter thinks it should be hers. I’m caught in the middle. Not normally a bad place to be when it comes to two feisty women.
But I’m falling for the daughter and when my lies come to light, everything is going to unravel. And then my future with the brewery and the girl will be shot to hell.
My boss probably won’t be too happy with me either...
