New York Times bestselling author Julie Garwood takes breathless sensuality to thrilling heights in this unforgettable adventure of passion and intrigue. The Emerald flew across the seas, carrying the pirate Pagan -- despised by the ton, whose riches he plundered, and beloved by the poor, whose plight was eased by his gifts. The Marquess of Cainewood vows to hunt down the pirate wretch in revenge for his brother's death. But when Jade, an enchanting vision of rippling red hair and eyes of jewel-green, appears at his door to beg desperately for his protection, the Marquess agrees to keep her safe from the villains who want her dead. Jade is infuriating, exasperating, and gorgeous; Caine is noble, strong-willed, and powerful. No woman has ever befuddled him so, nor so deeply aroused his desire. But as Jade answers his knowing caresses with an innocent, wild abandon, they are drawn into a web of treachery that will test the very heart of their love!

It's out of balance in its characterization and plotting. At the beginning of the book, the ...
I don't think everyone will, but I figured out the bad guy and the "secret" almost right away.
A complete joy! Very humorous and sweet. I great fun read and another reason to keep reading Julie Garwood. My fav part? When Christina packs Jade's satchel with weapons to protect her husband - then Caine takes out some and tells her that she needs to some to keep her husband safe too... The heroin...
I am listening to the audiobook and I also have the paperback. This is my first time reading/listening to this book.At first Jade is fake ditsy but she really is odd and couldn't seem to remember if she was acting or not. I loved Christine in the Lyon's book, but this woman was irritating. She co...
