Those who survive the wrath of Red Robert would never guess the pirate's secret–Red Robert is a woman, masquerading as a man.
Yet though the swift steel of her sword has spread her reputation to the farthest corners of the map, there is only one treasure she seeks–the blood of her lifelong nemesis…Blair Colm. Shipwrecked on a desert isle with the handsome Logan Hagarty, she soon rediscovers her femininity in the irresistible captain's arms.
But their paradise skies darken with the appearance of their common enemy. Now the two must summon all their strength and cunning to best the evil Colm, and protect the fierce love that has grown between them.

After college, she acted in dinner theatres, modelled, waitressed and tended bar.
After the birth of her third child, she was determined to devote her efforts to her dream – writing – and sold her first book in 1982. Today, more than 100 books and two children later (for a total of five), she is at the top of her craft and delighted to be “paid for doing something I love so much.”
Heather was a founding member of the Florida Romance Writers chapter of RWA, and since 1999 has hosted the Romantic Times Vampire Party, with all revenues going directly to charity, this year, to the Elizabeth Glaser Paediatric Aids Fund.
Today the author’s success is reflected not just by reader response and the over 20 million copies of her books in print, but in many other ways. Heather has received numerous awards for her novels, including over 20 trade awards from magazines such as Romantic Times and Affaire de Coeur, bestseller awards from B. Dalton, Waldenbooks and BookRak, and several People’s Choice awards.

Heather loves travel and anything that has to do with water, and is a certified scuba diver. “Learning to scuba dive is still one of my proudest accomplishments,” says Heather. “I got the urge when I was signing up my son for dive lessons and went on to learn myself. The best part is that it gives me the chance to explore Florida in a whole new way.”
Another new love is ballroom dance, the Arthur Murray way. This year will find her competing in her first pro-am competitions.
Married since high school graduation, her greatest love in life remains her family, but she counts her career as an incredible gift.
The high seas make for great adventure and red-hot passion as a beleaguered ship captain meets his match in the notorious scoundrel Red Robert. When Scottish lord Logan Haggerty is captured at sea, he is shocked to discover that "Robert" is a beautiful and fearless woman leading the boat of dutiful and deferential pirates. Red is wary of Logan but cannot deny the chemistry they have, though she refuses to let it interfere with her single-minded devotion to taking vengeance on the murderous con man who ruined her life. As disaster threatens, identities are finally unmasked, and Red and Logan seize the chance for passion. Drake (The Queen's Lady) constructs a well-drawn plot and provides plenty of sexual tension and romantic encounters as well as exotic scenery.
