From emerald jungles to the high seas to the glittering ballrooms of Regency London, beloved author Gaelen Foley tells a sweeping, sensual tale of the ruggedly handsome Lord Jack Knight and the passionate beauty who lays claim to his heart.
An English rose blooming in the untamed jungles of South America, Eden Farraday lives a life of independence–unheard of for a lady–with her doctor-turned-scientist father. But Eden misses England desperately. When the dangerous and darkly charming Lord Jack Knight sails into her life, she seizes her chance to return to civilization, stowing away aboard his London-bound ship.
Roguish and charismatic, a self-made shipping tycoon with a shadowy past and a well-guarded heart, Jack is sailing on a vital secret mission. When the redheaded temptress is discovered aboard his vessel, he reacts with fury–and undeniable lust. Forced to protect her from his rough crew, the devilish Lord Jack demands a scandalous price in exchange for Eden’s safe passage across the sea. As his wicked kiss ignites an unforgettable blaze of passion between them, Jack and Eden confront a soul-searing love that cannot be denied.
In the seventh installment of the Knight Miscellany series, a high seas adventure, Foley is deft as ever. This Regency romance begins in the jungles of Venezuela, where British native Eden Farraday lives with her father, Dr. Victor Farraday, as he looks for medicinal plants but she pines for London, the company of "normal people" and the chance to find a husband. When her father reneges on his promise to return to England, Eden finds her own way out of the jungle. Rakish Lord Jack Knight the black sheep of the Knight family is boating down the river, after a meeting with Bolivar's rebels, when he encounters Eden. He refuses to take her aboard his London-bound ship, but undaunted, Eden rows down the river after him and stows away. When Jack discovers Eden, he installs her in his cabin for his own amusement; contrary to his intention, he becomes infatuated, and their relationship begins to break down Jack's hardened facade. Foley maintains the delicious tension between Jack and Eden throughout; that, along with the mystery of Jack's past, propels the novel (following One Night of Sin) to an exciting conclusion.
