The rules of courtship are swept out to sea when a shipwreck offers a Reckless Bride a true taste of paradise…
CAN A WHIRLWIND ROMANCE
In Elizabeth Essex’s A Scandal to Remember, for too long, Miss Jane Burke’s father has taken advantage of her painstaking research. Heading to the South Seas to make her own name as a scientist despite the crew’s insistence that a woman aboard is bad luck, she isn’t prepared to be championed by a handsome ship’s officer who rouses longings inside her as wild as any storm…
LEAD TO A PROPER PROPOSAL?
For Lieutenant Charles Dance, a post on His Majesty’s survey ship Tenacious is just one more dutiful rung on the ladder of his career. Even a headstrong bluestocking on board is less troubling than the ship’s drunken captain—and the ferocious gales that drive the ship off course. Stranded on a remote island, passion blazes between them as hot as the sun, but it’s Jane’s love that Charles wants forever…
“A sophisticated blend of vivid historical detail, exquisite characterization, and delicious sexual tension.” —USA Today bestselling author Julianne MacLean

#5 in “The Reckless Brides” series, but can be read as a stand alone. Fast paced with seduction, scandal and romance. A wonderful High Seas adventure! From the first page to the last page, I was entranced with Lieutenant Charles Dance and Miss Jane Burke’s passion, adventures and romance. Blended with the right mixture of romance, secrets,sensuality, and love. What a delightful surprise Miss Burke is and Charles is a strong, determined hero. Well written with a unique storyline and well-rounded characters. An absolute delight to read! Keep them coming, please!
