The Pursuit of Pleasure
About the Book
SHE DOES SAY SHE’LL NEVER MARRY…
Miss Elizabeth Paxton is a new sort of heiress—educated, opinionated and entirely independent. The last thing she wants is a husband mucking about her life. Even if he is the only man she’s ever loved.
BUT SHE HAS ALWAYS WANTED TO BE A WIDOW.
When dashing Captain Jameson Marlowe returns to Dartmouth, he proposes to give Lizzie exactly what she wants—a marriage without the man. After one night of searing passion, his sworn duty will take him far off to sea…or so she thinks until secrets and lies set a collision course with the smugglers along the south coast, and Lizzie is caught in the dark tide of treason. Can she salvage her pride and learn to trust in true love before it’s too late?
The Pursuit of Pleasure was originally published in 2010. This new edition has been revised and reedited.
