In this fourth installment of USA Today bestselling author Collette Cameron’s Conundrums of the Misses Culpepper series, a roguish sea captain battles his attraction to a gently-bred hellion.
Captain Oliver Whitehouse has two goals: make the final payment on his ship and exact revenge for his grandfather’s murder. He certainly shouldn’t interrupt years of planning to rescue a damsel in distress and see her safely to England. Nor should he foolishly entertain romantic notions about a future with the impulsive beauty. Even if she is the loveliest creature he’s ever laid eyes on, and only she makes him forget his past.
Blaike Culpepper once craved adventure and excitement. Until her impetuousness nearly caused her ruin. Now shadowed by scandal, and pursued by a madman, she finds herself obligated to the darkly handsome Oliver Whitehouse. Though she saves the swashbuckling scoundrel’s life and enjoys a forbidden kiss, the infuriating man spurns her.
Dare Oliver risk everything to pursue Blaike, despite the vast difference in their social stations, or should he sail away? Leaving his heart behind?
Caution: This novel contains a dark-tempered, devilishly handsome sea captain, an impulsive, sometimes mischievous heroine, multiple villains you’ll love to loathe, and a foul-mouthed cockatoo sure to make you giggle. Or blush.
For an adventurous page-turning Regency Historical Romance novel brimming with suspense, passion, and tenderness, read the fourth installment of the Conundrums of the Misses Culpepper.
