Desire & Deception
by Nicole Jordan


Lauren DeVries stared at Captain Jason Stuart in dismay. Of all the men in London, she had managed to run into the very one her guardian was forcing her to marry and the reason she had fled London and was looking for passage to America.

Stuart would take her aboard, but he was demanding a night in her arms as payment. The breathtaking blonde quickly devised a desperate plan...she would give the handsome rogue what he desired, then take his gold and run. But escape was the last thing she wanted once he took her in his demanding embrace and awakened her passions.

Originally published July 1994 by Avon Books.
