An American spy with a British birth, Adam Trent, the Duke of Cornwall, is consumed with gathering information to use against England's navy. But, despite the intrigues of war, the mystery of the lovely young woman washed ashore near his Cornwall estate is one he cannot resist. With the ragged remains of a treasure map concealed in her chemise and no memory of who she is and how she got there, the dark beauty is an alluring puzzle he must solve.
Fighting her powerful desire for the man who has sheltered her, Jewel Bona struggles both to remember her past and imagine what her future might hold. But when a British officer claiming that he is her uncle threatens to expose her to terrifying danger, she turns to Adam for protection ... and passion.
Fleeing to America aboard Adam's ship, the two cannot deny all that they feel in each other's embrace. But the shadow of war and a scandalous connection to an infamous pirate loom like a powder keg over their dreams of love--a love each will risk everything to keep alive...
Meet the Author
Brenda Jernigan is a bestselling author. Her books have been nominated for
many awards - Book Seller’s Best Award, The Maggie Award, and The Holt
Medallion Award. Publisher’s Weekly said, “Brenda Jernigan writes Romance,
Adventure and Magic”
She grew up living the life of a tomboy – climbing trees, playing ball, and excluding starry-eyed romance from her daily repertoire. Brenda discovered the love of books while taking her son to Story Hour at the local library -- she was hooked. She set an ambitious goal and began work on her first novel. She continued to write six more novels in rapid succession. She figured having the same birthday as Ernest Hemingway couldn’t hurt.
Her books have been printed in several languages and her last book “Southern Seduction” written under the name of Alexandria Scott was printed in Russian
