No writer can rival the sheer storytelling power ofNew York Timesbestselling author Virginia Henley, whose many books have earned a place on her readers' shelves and in their hearts.  Now, in her hardcover debut, she brings us the tale of a man whose need for vengeance rules his heart and the woman who may prove to be his most effective weapon of revenge, or the instrument of his destruction. After five long years on a prison ship, Sean O'Toole, Earl of Kildare, makes his escape in order to exact his plan of revenge upon the Englishman who killed his brother and framed Sean for the crime.  While imprisoned, Sean honed his body to rock-hard perfection, steeled his will against all sentiment, and filled his mind with thoughts of retribution against the man he had hated for years.  But at night his dreams were filled with memories of his enemy's daughter--the half-Irish, half-English Emerald, whose fiery beauty had beguiled him when they met, and whose bold and fearless spirit he had never forgotten. His memories of Emerald are not enough to prevent Sean from going through with his plan to use her as a pawn in his quest for vengeance.  His scheme: to kidnap Emerald and bring her to his home, where he will keep her long enough to sully her reputation and bring disgrace upon her family.  Sean is shocked when, instead of the defiant temptress he once knew, the memory of whom kept him alive for five long years, he finds his quarry is now a timid, fearful woman afraid of her own shadow.  Has she too become a victim of her father's corruption?  Determined to go through with his plans, he steals Emerald away to his family's estate, where he slowly gains her trust--only to betray her with his lies. Locked in prisons of their own making, Emerald and Sean must find a way to break free of their bonds, or risk losing themselves--and each other--forever.

display_description Bent on revenge after five years on a prison ship, Sean O'Toole, Earl of Kildare, kidnapped his enemy's daughter. Her name was Emerald, an innocent beauty he had known long ago, who had stirred his senses like no other woman. But now he planned to seduce her, abandon her...and bring disgrace to the Montagues. First he would restore the fire to her eyes, make her hunger for his steely embrace — then use her in an act of vengeance. But Sean didn't expect to find himself caught in the sudden heat of his own desires, bewitched by the magnificent beauty he'd planned to betray...
