A pirate and a high-born maiden, brought together by a legendary sword…
Dashing French pirate Jean-Philippe Beauvisage revels in a life of complete freedom … until the night at a ball in Georgian London, when a Russian beauty quietly steals his heart.
Heartbroken Antonia Varyshkova, who has lost her parents and her home in a St. Petersburg fire, stops in London en route to a new life with her brother in America. When her arrogant ship’s captain, Tobias Ormond, insists that she attend a ball with him, Antonia reluctantly agrees.
The instant connection between Jean-Philippe and Antonia is soul-deep, but it seems that there cannot be a future for them. She sails off to America and he returns to his corsair’s life at sea … until an ancient Roman sword which may be cursed forces Beauvisage to chase down the very ship carrying the woman he loves.
Take to the high seas with Jean-Philippe Beauvisage as he plots to capture his lady ~ and win her heart of fragile stars.
