But, despite the intrigues of war, the mystery of the lovely young woman washed ashore near his Cornwall estate is one he cannot resist.

A Lover's Secret – Fighting her powerful desire for the man who has sheltered her, Jewel Bona struggles both to remember her past and imagine what her future might hold. But when a British officer claiming that he is her uncle threatens to expose her to terrifying danger, she turns to Adam for protection … and passion.
A Pirate's Gold – Fleeing to America aboard Adam’s ship, the two cannot deny all that they feel in each other’s embrace. But the shadow of war and a scandalous connection to an infamous pirate loom like a powder keg over their dreams of love–a love each will risk everything to keep alive.
