High Seas to High Society - Sophia James

Asher Wellingham, Duke of Carisbrook, was captivated by her! He had happened upon Lady Emma Seaton swimming naked and, beyond her beauty, had seen the deep curling scar on her thigh-- a wound that could only be the mark of a sword.

Who was this creature of contradictions? Something about her brought back tantalizing memories from the past. Her ill-fitting, threadbare clothes concealed the body of an angel, but what kind of woman truly lay behind her refined mask? Highborn lady or artful courtesan, she intrigued him and Asher wanted to possess both!

 

 

    James weaves her spell, captivating readers with wit and wisdom, and cleverly combining humor and poignancy with a master's touch in this feel-good love story.
    Lady pirate Emmie Seaton has come from Jamaica with two things to accomplish: get revenge on Asher Wellington, the Duke of Carisbrook, the man who ruined her life; and steal back a treasure map. Her task is simple: infiltrate the ton, locate Asher and find the map. But when she spies her handsome prey, her determination wavers. Then she saves his sister
    from a lecher and is invited into the family fold.

    There she learns the truth of what happened years ago and her role in it. Her scheme starts to disintegrate as she falls for Asher, but when Asher learns of her identity he draws back. It's up to Emmie to rescue him from his enemy and himself by teaching him that forgiveness is as important as passion. (Harlequin, Mar., 300 pp., $5.99)
