Jo Goodman enchants readers with her irresistible tales of adventure and sensual romance. Now, with The Captain's Lady, this beloved award-winning author presents a classic romance of two wary people discovering the unplumbed depths of the human heart as they explore the dangerous waters of desire.
When Alexis Danty awakens to find herself on a ship sailing for America, she is furious with Captain Tanner Cloud for spiriting her away and ruining her plans to avenge the violent deaths of her beloved family. When he refuses to return her to her Caribbean home, she vows to one day escape even though she finds herself more attracted to Cloud with each passing day. She knew Cloud was protecting her from danger, but she would not rest—or abandon herself to his embrace—until she had her revenge.
Finally after making a daring escape, Alexis sets out on her mission, reinventing herself as Alex Danty, captain of the notorious pirate ship The Dark Lady. But when her path once again crosses with Tanner's, she is unable to forget the unexpected passion that consumed them both. Only he knows the perilous course she is navigating and only he can offer the help she needs—risking treason for the love they can no longer resist.
