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…
Get a sneak peek of Elizabeth Essex's A Scandal to Remember (available August 26, 2014) with an exclusive excerpt of Chapter 1 & 2.
