"Deliciously romantic and sensual . . . Scottish romance at its very best!"--MONICA McCARTY, New York Times bestselling author, on Seduced by a Highlander
AN INNOCENT STOWAWAY
As the sheltered niece of a Highland chief, Caitrina Grant longs for adventure beyond the lush hills of Scotland. So when a pirate ship glides into the loch, tempting her with promises of exotic lands and hidden treasures, Trina sneaks aboard. But she is unprepared for the consequences-and the seductive captain who demands the ultimate price for her deception . . .
A SINFUL PIRATE
For Alexander Kidd, the sea is no place for a lady. Pursued by deadly enemies from every direction, Alex won't rest until he claims the bounty of riches left to him by his father, the notorious Captain Kidd. A stowaway will not be tolerated-no matter how beautiful. But soon fighting his desire for Trina becomes his toughest battle yet, and he will have to make an agonizing choice: sacrifice his quest-or lose the woman who has stolen his heart.
Quinn's vivid second Highland Heirs novel (after The Seduction of Miss Amelia Bell), set in 18th-century Scotland, captures some of the most popular elements of historical romance: a beautiful stowaway, a dangerously sexy pirate, and the search for an elusive treasure. Caitrina Grant has no desire to wed any of the suitors who have vied for her hand, but she is intrigued by the pirate who arrives at her home. Capt. Alexander Kidd is clearly the sort of man that virtuous young women should avoid. When Caitrina sneaks aboard Alex's ship with her cousin Kyle, she just wants to explore, not become one of the pirate's romantic conquests. But the ship heads to sea before Kyle and Caitrina can disembark, and they must face the formidable captain. The ever-present sexual tension between Caitrina and Alex is creatively woven into story of battles at sea, the romance of foreign ports, and the secret good deeds of the pirate captain, who wonders whether he can learn to trust Caitrina and open his hardened heart to the possibility of love. Quinn's steamy and well constructed romance will appeal to fans and newcomers alike.
