Desperate to escape her cruel, greedy uncle, raven-haired Christy hid herself aboard the Merrimer, certain she could sneak back ashore before the ship set sail. But before she knew it, the luscious stowaway drifted asleep -- and awoke to the hard, flinty glare of Captain Michael Lancer. Christy trembled when he threatened to send her to a watery grave, but she was utterly terrified when he decreed she would pay for her passage with nothing less than her private services in the captain's cabin!
With his chiseled features and manly build, Michael Lancer never lacked for feminine attention. But when he saw the tempting, petite Christy, she shattered his control and ravaged his resolve to never touch an unwilling woman. Something in the way her lips pouted and her hips swayed drove him mad with desire. And when she refused to succumb to his sensual charms, Michael had no choice but to claim her forever and make her his own Captive Mistress.
