On the run from her powerful benefactor whose unscrupulous interest in her magic has forced her to flee, Margaret Taskill has never needed a hero more. In order to gain passage from England to her homeland in Scotland, she plans to win over a rugged Scottish sea captain with the only currency she has: her virginity.
Maisie submits to Captain Roderick Cameron's raw sexuality in search of protection, but as their initial attraction grows into obsessive desire, devastating powers are unleashed within her. But the journey threatens to take a dangerous turn, forcing Maisie to keep close the secret truth about what she is, and keep the superstitious crew—unhappy at having a woman on board—at bay.
With Maisie's wealthy sponsor giving chase, Roderick must stay one step ahead of the British Navy before her seductive magic causes a full-scale mutiny. He may believe he has full command of his ship, but he's about to get much more than he bargained for.
The Jezebel by veteran erotica author Saskia Walker is the third in her Taskill Witches series, erotic romances set in 18th-century Scotland. Its heroine, Maisie Taskill, is the twin sister of Jessie, heroine of The Harlot; the middle book, The Libertine, featured their brother. All three siblings possess supernatural powers that they must conceal from society at large, on pain of death.
