Overview

She gambled with destiny and lost…or did she?

Julia is caught up in the fervor to rescue Napoleon that grips New Orleans after Waterloo. She doesn’t, however, trust the handsome sea captain chosen by her father to carry out a daring invasion of the emperor’s island prison. Rudyard’s self-assurance is infuriating and his intentions open to question.

She was right to worry; nothing goes as planned. Alone, bereaved and far from home, Julia must become Rudyard’s bride or abandon the undertaking. The desire that flares between them touches a desolate corner of her soul—but it cannot be allowed to matter.

Then a wild storm at sea flings Julia into a harem where dangerous games are played amidst silken decadence. Can she summon the wit and courage to escape the violence around her—and prevent the death of the man she loves?

    Good Not Great!

    This was a good book, but too long and drawn out.
    Not one of Jennifer Blake's best books.
