SHE RELUCTANTLY RESCUED THE ROGUE— NOW HE'S DETERMINED TO RESCUE HER!
Miss Lucy Preston pulls a wounded smuggler from the quicksand of the Lancashire beaches, and she soon rues the day. For the rascal immediately sees through her disguise and that of her heavily veiled companion—who, indeed, is not a mute, elderly woman but a frightened young lady running from danger and seeking refuge at this remote seaside cottage.
Happily acknowledging he has just landed in a truly fascinating melodrama, Christopher Valliant is determined to aid the fair damsels. For this reformed rake is motivated by the most noble reason of all: love—pure and glorious—for the lovely, temperamental, and ever-so-delightful Lucy!
