Overview

To escape her cruel stepfather, seamstress Alexandra Cogsworth envisioned sailing far from England…though not as a captive aboard a pirate’s ship.

Pirate captain Nathaniel Kent’s strategy for exacting revenge on his coldhearted father involved taking a valuable hostage…not a seamstress he mistakenly thinks is his half sister.

Yet fate has designs of its own, landing them both on board the Royal Vengeance. At sea, Nathaniel intercepts and plunders his father’s ships, all the while tormented by his illicit hunger for the tempting prisoner he thinks is his blood relation. And although Alexandra wants no part in this terrifying voyage, to reveal her true identity to the handsome, blue-eyed Nathaniel would invite danger. Not only would she become worthless cargo, but the revelation would surely unleash what she and Nathaniel have been fiercely battling – a rising undercurrent of impossible desire that could sweep them away for good.

“An absorbing, fast-paced romance…don’t miss this wonderful debut.” —Jo Beverly

“A passionate romance…exciting…unforgettable.” —Amanda Scott

“Impressive…this novel has all the elements a reader craves: delicious family secrets, high seas adventure, and a passionate love story. Read and enjoy!” —Susan Wiggs

Darlene Kendall
"Ms. Novak is a refreshing new voice in this genre. Her first novel is a fast moving tale about hate, vengeance, and the wondrous power of love to heal all wounds. With its engaging characters and excellent plot, Of Noble Birth has all the elements of a keeper."
Nan H. Doporto
"Brenda Novak has made a bright beginning...This book smokes with erotic tension between the handsome pirate captain and his hostage. You won't be able to put it down until that smoke is fanned into flame."
Maureen Ditri
"I loved Of Noble Birth! It was riveting and compelling. I was truly taken with the characters, the history and the places. This book is so well written and descriptive that I suffered from seasickness during the storm, clutching fear while trapped in the brothel, lice in prison and a tearing apart of my heart when Alexandra and Nathaniel are parted. There's so much more I could say but I'm still recovering from my fictional adventures and can't go further!

Meet the Author

It was a shocking experience that jump-started Brenda Novak’s career as a bestselling author—she caught her day-care provider drugging her children with cough syrup to get them to sleep all day. That was when Brenda decided she needed to quit her job as a loan officer and help make a living from home.

“When I first got the idea to become a novelist, it took me five years to teach myself the craft and finish my first book,” Brenda says. But she sold that book, and the rest is history. Her novels have made the New York Times, USA Today and Borders/Waldenbooks bestseller lists and won many awards, including two Rita nominations, the Book Buyer’s Best, the Book Seller’s Best and the National Reader’s Choice Award.

Brenda and her husband, Ted, live in Sacramento and are proud parents of five children—three girls and two boys. When she’s not spending time with her family or writing, Brenda is usually working on her annual fund-raiser for diabetes research—an online auction held on her Web site (www.brendanovak.com) every May. Brenda has raised over $1 million to date.
