Decisa a sottrarsi a un matrimonio senza amore e alle restrizioni della società, l'ereditiera Sophia Hathaway respinge il fidanzato, impacchetta tele e colori e si imbarca sul veliero Aphrodite fingendosi una governante. Desidera una vita libera e anticonvenzionale, ma un conto è tratteggiare a pennello quelle audaci fantasie, un altro è trovarsi faccia a faccia con l'incarnazione di una di queste: l'affascinante quanto pericoloso capitano della nave, Benedict Grayson. Libertino e mascalzone, Gray vive per il profitto e il piacere, ma il talento e la sensualità di Sophia riescono a toccargli il cuore. Al punto che, all'improvviso, è pronto a sfidare qualsiasi pericolo pur di tenerla accanto a sé.

I have read ALL of Tessa Dare's novels and love them! I checked out some from my library and own all the Spindle Cove novels and novellas as well as the Werestag novella. You will not be dissapointed with any of her writings except that they end! I would like to find a "comparable" author because I just know Tessa's work to be the best for my tastes with the right amount of story, character development, setting, and spice. I was not actually a romance reader until I stumbled upon a free offering of one of her ebooks on my Nook. That was how I even found this genre and now am hooked! I have always been a fan of period romance movies and am a stickler for anything set in the Victorian (or earlier) settings of Europe which all of her books are. I do have a few other free historical romances but I just know already I won't be as pleased. I wish Tessa would go full time just writing ONLY Spindle Cove series and that PBS or BBC would pick up the rights and make an ongoing romance seriers for TV that would be hot and heavy and for adult viewers but tasteful. Maybe Netflix??? Wouldn't that be incredible! LOL Bascially to sum all this up do not worry one bit about purchasing any of her materials. You will love having them. I have read each of the Spindle Cove series twice and plan to re-read each once a year- Yes they are that good! I stay tuned for pre-orders and have always been on of the first to get a book as it comes out.
