FOR A FORTUNE IN SILVER, A TAVERN MAID WAS ROYALLY WED .. . TO A DANGEROUS MASQUERADE!
The daring bargain was sealed. Penniless Alicia agreed to pose as a missing heiress, and thus become the wife--in name only--of Geoffrey, Lord Seavers. Handsome and ambitious, Geoffrey would now secure a dowry to finance his fleet of ships. Alicia reveled in her role as pampered darling of an amorous court, until her bold charade was threatened by an unexpected passion--for her husband! Then, suddenly, her reckless Lord sailed off to war, determined to deny his bride's desire.
Fleeing their bargain, the proud and headstrong beauty crossed the seas to the Colonies, for she would have all of Geoffrey's love ... or none at all!
