Overview

The Thief
When Trevor Claremont was blind-sided by a pickpocket on the docks beside his clipper ship, he tracked down the culprit--only to face a feisty, emerald-eyed beauty who stirred his hungriest desires. Seeing a solution to his pressing problem of finding a bride to please his dying grandmother, he offered her a deal: marriage to him...or prison, never imaging that this little cut-purse would also steal his heart.

The Sea Captain
Kristen Johnstone realized she’d been outfoxed by this handsome Englishman and reluctantly agreed to a marriage in name only. Soon, she traded rags for resplendent gowns, black alleys for drawing rooms, and fury for fiery passion in the arms of her new husband. But when the scandalous secrets of her past came to light, she would risk everything, including her heart to save a love more precious than gold.

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.

    Entertaining but preposterous

    The idea that a Duchess would be imprisoned for anything less than treason is hard to swallow. That a Duke would have no sway, leverage or influence is just preposterous. I found that twist distracting and it was hard to stay in the story.

    Besides that, it was really entertaining. A fun read.

    Overall, I enjoyed the book. The first couple of chapters real

    Overall, I enjoyed the book. The first couple of chapters really drew me in; I liked the romanticism. But from the middle of the book on, I thought the story was unnecessarily drawn out, the same misunderstandings and miseadings of each other growing a bit tedious. I liked the storyline, but it would have been better as a novella, I think. Also, could have used a better edit before publishing. I'm no English major but I found the errors a bit distracting.

    Fairytale Without the Magic....................

    From the getgo the story is so outlandish you wonder what age group the author was aiming for. Terribly juvenile and implausible plot. Complete drivel.
