Seraphim Carver narrowed her golden eyes as she considered the final details of her plan. She'd managed to stow away aboard the Lawrence and persuade Commodore Perry to let her stay and serve as a nurse... now she had to find a way to sabotage the American ship. Seraphim hated the murdering Americans who had killed her father—she'd do anything to hinder them in their war with the British. And she wouldn't let her unwanted desire for Captain Kane McClintock stop her. She had to avoid his magnetic, blue-eyed gaze, resist the seductive power of his strong, lean body. She couldn't afford to fall in love with the very enemy she'd sworn to destroy!
Kane had been furious when he discovered the stowaway. With her red-gold curls and wide, tawny eyes, the little spitfire was bound to cause more trouble than she could imagine. But it was too late to turn back... the wench would just have to make herself useful and pretend to be his cabin boy. The raven-haired captain found it hard to believe anyone would be taken in by her cropped hair and baggy pants—he himself found it impossible to ignore the flawless skin and sensuous curves that made her sex all too clear. He had to get her out of his system, but somehow he knew he would never get enough of his wild, unpredictable DEFIANT VIXEN.
