Rose Trelawney thinks she's been caught red-handed robbing the Duke of Cumberland's London estate. But she soon realizes she's been mistaken for the duke's mistress, and the stranger who finds her is out for revenge. Suddenly Drummond McLeod is dragging her to a ship setting sail for the New World--and Rose is not about to go without a fight. When he forces her to wed him on board ship, she knows she'd sooner die than spend one more moment with the lecherous brute. But the ship's close quarters throw them together, igniting a spark of fiery passion that will carry them through cold Canadian nights. When Rose glimpses a tenderness beneath his hardened heart, she wonders if she might stop cursing the day she'd been so brazenly stolen.
