Growing up behind the impenetrable walls of an English fortress, young Magdalen does not know that she is the illegitimate daughter of a powerful English prince and his murdered French mistress - or that she has been a pawn in the struggle between England and France ever since she slipped from her dying mother's womb. All she knows is that she longs for excitement. And then one day, as if in answer to her prayers, the splendid figure of Guy de Gervais, a true knight in shining armor, rides into her cloistered world and spirits her away.

In this spectacular new romance from acclaimed New York Times best-selling author Jane Feather, fate deals one stubbornly single young woman and one deceptively heartless man a shocking hand in a high-stakes bet. But is love in the cards?
Independent and inquisitive, Meg Barratt wants nothing to do with any stifling society marriage. Meg yearns for the kind of passion that exists only in books - until a violent storm lands her on the high seas with the most dangerous and seductive man she's ever encountered. For Cosimo, women are objects to be manipulated. But when the seafaring assassin accidentally kidnaps Meg, he must reconsider his position. Recruiting his unsuspecting captive for the danger ahead is far more challenging than he expected - and far more seductive.
