Chance the Winds of Fortune (Dominick Trilogy #2) by Laurie McBain
Old quarrels and revenge reach out after years and strike at Lucien Dominick's family.
The focus of these attempts is his daughter Lady Rhea Claire, sold as an indentured servant and incarcerated in the bowels of a ship bound for Charles Town.
Rhea, a breath of golden jessamine, manages to escape but in the hue and cry of the chase hides out in a dangerous place--the cabin of privateer Dante Leighton, Marquis of Jacqobi and captain of the Sea Dragon.
Dante might be sceptical that this isn't some complex ruse but everyone from the cabin boy to the first mate, including the turncoat cat Jamaica are won over by Rhea.
Of course the sparks fly between the two, those of temper and those of attraction.
However Dante will not be gulled and Rhea will not be deterred from charting her course for home.
An enthralling story that stretches across oceans, colourful in its telling and beguiling in its imagery.
Multilayered and guaranteed to captivate!
