Overview

"Open yer eyes, girl. Open them up wide enough to see how that man looks at ye—as if ye were the last spoonful of water on the flat earth and he, dying for a drop."

Between the Devil & the Deep Blue Sea

Just one bite....
Nessa Teague has never believed in the magic that swirls around her village like a fine Cornish mist. She's never had need of it. Until the day Lord Harry Beck returns to Bocka Morrow and Nessa realizes there is nothing, including the blackest of magic, she won't do to have him for her own.

and he could be hers.
Harry Beck has left the Royal Navy only to find himself shoaled upon the rocky coast of Cornwall, where smugglers haunt every cove and treachery fouls the waters. His best hope to find the traitor selling secrets to the French is to charm the vicar's observant and intelligent daughter, Nessa Teague. But in a place where loyalty runs deeper than the deep blue sea, they'll need more than charm to uncover the secret plot that threatens their country, and shakes their faith in the power and magic of true love.

The Devil's Own Luck

A man sworn to duty...
Captain Matthew Kent has always been bound by his service to the Royal Navy. But when the Admiralty rewards him handsomely for cleaning out a nest of traitors, he is tempted to throw it all away for a second chance with Tressa Teague, the very woman he should not admire—a smuggler.

A woman on her own mission...
Tressa Teague is daughter of the vicar, expected to be everything sweetness and light. But instead she has the heart of a pirate, and is the brains if not the brawn behind the local smuggling ring. She thought she had seen the last of the dangerous sea captain who had come into their midst. But when he returns to the rugged coast of Cornwall to offer her the chance of a lifetime, will she lose her freedom? Or only her heart?

In two intertwined stories of a place where loyalty runs deeper than the deep blue sea, our lovers will need more than charm to uncover the secret plot that threatens their country, and shakes their faith in the power and magic of true love.

About the Author

Elizabeth Essex is a USAToday Bestselling and award-winning author of critically acclaimed historical romance, including the Reckless Brides and Highland Brides series. Her books have been nominated for numerous awards, including the Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence, the Romantic Times Reviewer’s Choice and Seal of Excellence awards, and RWA’s prestigious RITA Award. The Reckless Brides books have also made top-tier lists from Romantic Times, The Romance Reviews, and Affair de Coeur Magazine, and the entire series was awarded Desert Isle Keeper status at All About Romance. Her fifth book, A BREATH OF SCANDAL was awarded Best Historical in the Reader’s Crown 2013.

When not re-reading Jane Austen, mucking about in her garden, or messing about with boats, Elizabeth can be found at her laptop, making up stories about heroes and heroines who live far more exciting lives than she. It wasn’t always so—long before she ever set pen to paper, Elizabeth graduated from Hollins College with a B.A. in Classics and Art History, and then earned her M.A. in Nautical Archaeology from Texas A & M University. While she loved the life of an underwater archaeologist, she has found her true calling writing lush, lyrical historical romance full of passion, daring and adventure.

Elizabeth lives in Texas with her husband, the Indispensable Mr. Essex, her active and exuberant family, and her darling dogs, Ghillie and Brogue, in an old house filled to the brim with books.
