The Lady's Command
Declan Frobisher, scion of a seafaring dynasty, is accustomed to getting his way. But his new bride, Lady Edwina Delbraith is unconventional and has a spine of steel. Bare weeks into their honeymoon, Declan is recruited to sail on a secret mission, and Edwina – naturally – declares she must accompany him. Facing unforeseen perils and unexpected enemies while battling to expose a dastardly scheme, Declan and Edwina discover that their tempestuous marriage demands something they both possess – bold and adventurous hearts.
A Buccaneer At Heart
When an urgent summons from the Crown arrives, Captain Robert Frobisher agrees to set sail for Freetown immediately. His covert mission is to locate a slavers' camp and return to London with the information. Miss Aileen Hopkins is determined to find her brother, a naval lieutenant who has mysteriously disappeared, and she will not allow anyone to turn her from this dangerous path. Joining forces with Aileen, Robert vows to complete his task and secure the woman he wants as his wife. Compelled to protect the innocent and bring retribution to a heartless enemy, they plunge into the jungle with only each other to rely on, and the courage of their hearts as their guide.
The Daredevil Snared
Captain Caleb Frobisher, hedonistic youngest son of a seafaring dynasty, has something to prove. So he seizes the next leg of the covert mission his brothers are pursuing, and stays on to accomplish its ultimate goal. Katherine Fortescue fled a life of poverty and came to Freetown as a governess, only to be kidnapped and forced to oversee the child workforce at a mine. Guarded by mercenaries, the captives have lost all hope. Then Katherine meets Caleb – and he brings the sweet promise of rescue. Through the clashes that follow, he becomes the leader he was destined to be, and the sort of man Katherine can trust – with her body, with her life. With her love.
Lord of the Privateers
Royd Frobisher is set to execute the final stage of the rescue mission his brothers have begun. What he does not expect is to bring Isobel Carmichael, his childhood sweetheart, with him. Isobel has her own mission: to find and bring a young cousin safely home. Following a full–scale rescue–assault on the slavers' compound deep in the jungle, Royd and Isobel discover that freeing the captives is only half the battle. To identify and convict the conspirators behind the illicit enterprise – and save England from political disaster – they must return to the ballrooms of the haut ton and hunt the villains on their home ground. But having found each other again, how much are Royd and Isobel willing to risk in the name of duty?
