An Irresistible Danger


To save her village and what's left of her family fortune from her wastrel cousin, gently bred Emily Townsend secretly leads a ring of smugglers. With the king's forces and deadly rivals closing in, she has but one last shipment to acquire. But when her men rescue an injured stranger from the sea one stormy night, Emily faces her most formidable--and tempting--adversary ever. For Barnaby, the new Viscount Joslyn, is determined to uncover who tried to kill him the moment he set foot in England. Yet proving to Miss Townsend that he can also be trusted with her deepest secrets is an equally intriguing challenge. Now Barnaby and Emily's boldest gambit rests on unthinkable risk--and surrendering to an undeniable love. . .

"Busbee spins a tale unusually well-balanced between its appealing central romance and lively action-adventure." --Publishers Weekly

"Busbee is one of the grand dames of historical romance. Longtime readers and new fans will be captivated by her latest Becomes Her story." --RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars
