Overview

Young, beautiful, and destitute, widowed Anna Traverne finds herself at the mercy of her brother-in-law Lord Ridley, who offers her and her little daughter a home for a price: Anna must become his mistress. Frightened, revolted, gently bred Anna can see no way out – until a handsome jewel thief breaks into Gordon Hall in search of a fabled set of emeralds. Surprised by Anna in the act of purloining the jewels, Julian Chase is captured and carted off to Newgate to hang for the theft. The emeralds remain missing; despite being tortured, Julian insists he has no idea where they are. By the time he manages to cheat the hangman, though, Julian has figured out what must have happened: the green-eyed angel whose screams led to his downfall had to have taken them. And he is right: finding herself in possession of the emeralds after Julian's capture, Anna seizes on the chance to escape from Lord Ridley and flees to the tea plantation in Ceylon that is her home. But once Julian knows the truth, he comes after her, traveling halfway across the world to reclaim what he feels is rightfully his – and to take a sensuous revenge on the larcenous young beauty whose fate he now holds in his hands.

Meet the Author

Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve loved to write. My first book was a ten-page effort written at age five for my grandmother. Throughout grade school, high school and college I wrote for various school publications. When I was eighteen, my first professionally published piece—a humorous anecdote—appeared in Reader’s Digest. Still, it never occurred to me that I might become a professional writer. I aimed for a career as a lawyer and was actually in law school when I sold my first book. When that happened, the world lost a would-be lawyer and gained a writer. That book, which is still in print, is Island Flame, and it was published when I was twenty-four. Since then, I've written over forty books, which regularly appear on the New York Times, USA Today, and Publisher’s Weekly bestseller lists, among others. The mother of three sons, I read, I write, and I chauffeur children. That’s my life.

    Love this book!

    What an entertaining and interesting book, have read it twice. Retired, I am an avid reader and I have to say this book kept me glued. Terrific work, Mrs. Robards! Can't wait to read your other books.

    Very average...and slow!?

    The book cover caught my eyes, so I thought I'll try it out. Maybe i shouldn't be writing a review because I haven't finish the book yet, I read 1/3 of the book. So far, the writer repeats herself, I found myself "skip" some part, I'm usually good keeping up with a "less up beat" book, but this one is slow! I don't feel like going back to it, but I still want to know the end. I will not buy any book from this author again.

    Absolutely Amazing!!!

    This is definitely one of the best Karen Robards has written. it's beginning gets you hooked on the story immediately. the romance in this story is wonderful but what makes this novel truly special is the additional suspense, mystery, and action-adventure. Anna and Julian's love is tested like in no other story. everything ties together and makes sense in the end, leaving you wanting more.

    Karen Robards is incomparable.

    The actions, the characters, the plot, etc. are very engaging. Ms. Robards always writes such beautiful stories. This is another winner. It's a must read.
