In 1816, Irishman Ian Campion uses his fists to earn money to support his two widowed sisters, two nephews, and niece. When Dunmore ¿Pirate¿ Harrell offers him an opportunity to make a fortune, he is interested, as Ian knows he can move his family to a safer locale than the London slums they currently reside in. Pirate has made a fortune in business and has married a duke¿s widow, but is willing to spend a large sum to bring safely home his missing daughter Lyssa. Pirate thinks someone kidnapped Lyssa, but Ian believes she ran away from home to elude her snobbish fiancé Viscount Grossett.

After a few days on the trail, Ian catches up with Lyssa, being escorted by a group masquerading as Gypsies. However, before he can return with her, thugs try to kill her. Ian escorts Lyssa to her deceased mother¿s Scottish family while struggling to keep her safe. They fall in love, but Ian feels he is not good enough for the heiress, who must persuade her rescuer that he is that and more to her.

This Regency romance stars two delightful lead characters that the audience will enjoy watching fuss, fight, and their efforts to stay alive. Though the reason for the assault seems strange (perhaps this reviewer is too baby boomer middle class to comprehend), the story line is fun to follow anyway because Cathy Maxwell always provides a fun tale good to the last word. Sub-genre readers will appreciate this fine historical It Happened One Night romantic suspense.

A fiery redhead and a sexy irishman equal a passionate tale of forbidden love with a wave of action to heat things up. Daughter to a pirate lord and hopeless romantic, Lyssa is being forced to marry and decides it would be better to run away. Her father hires an outlaw irishman to hunt her down and bring her home. Along the way both find themselves unable to resist the pull and eventually fall in love. Loved it!

This book was fantastic, I purchased it because I recently discovered Cathy Maxwell and wanted to try some of her other books. I am so glad that I did! I read this book in one day! The hero was terrific, the heroine was on a touching journey that was more about growing up than running away. I would highly recommend this novel to anyone that loves a great romance.

Wow! This book was great. Tons of chemistry, just enough adventure and not too many obstacles. I just finished the book and am going to read it again immediately.
