When the orphaned daughter of English missionaries is swept up in a slavers’ raid on her African village, it puts her on a collision course with a formerly enslaved pirate captain who avails himself of every luxury but considers himself completely unworthy of her love.
In the latest installment of the Outcasts series, author Miranda Spencer shows that she has by no means lost her taste for juicy, refreshingly shocking characters that throw proper London society into a tizzy ... Spencer enjoys poking at the delicate scales of power in Regency society. While her characters move in the highest echelons, they’ve all struggled with powerlessness and disdain in various forms.
In the third exemplary addition to her Outcasts series...Spencer once again rewards readers with the bold originality of her story lines—here she deftly explores the impact of the early nineteenth-century slave trade—the fearless unconventionality of her characters (including a hero tortured by his past and a take-no-prisoners heroine determined to help him), and an abundance of potent, sensually combustible chemistry she cooks up between her protagonists. Spencer is a storyteller of impressive flair.
Spencer continues her outstanding Outcasts series with two characters from completely different backgrounds who share similar values and a sizzling passion. Along the way she explores love, freedom, friendship, and what it means to be a person of worth, especially by living on one’s own terms. Sexy, witty, and fiercely entertaining.
