Description-
  • Power is the ultimate aphrodisiac. But in this classic novel of romance and suspense from New York Times bestselling author Kay Hooper, a strong man who always takes what he wants is challenged by an alluring woman who is not easily kept.

    Ruthless, charismatic, and devastatingly handsome, Andres Sereno rules the small South American island of Kadeira with an iron first--and he has abducted the irresistible Sara Marsh to keep her out of harm's way. Of course, Andres has ulterior motives: He is determined to convince Sara that she cannot live without him. Overwhelmed by his urgent desire, Sara finds Andres hard to resist. But can she trust a man with darkness in his soul and danger in his blood?

    Blindsided by a sudden storm with no safe harbor in sight, Sara has no choice but to embrace the fierce warrior who holds her captive. Though Andres tries to shield her from his violent side, Sara knows that she's tempting fate. Before risking everything, Sara must walk through fire and discover the strength within herself. Only then can she surrender to the primitive force of their desire.

Excerpts-
  • Chapter One

    She was too angry to be afraid. The injection they'd given her had acted quickly, and she was hardly surprised to awaken in the small cabin of a boat. She held her aching head with one hand and sat up on the bunk, gazing out the porthole at the open sea. That also didn't surprise her. It was sometime around midafternoon, she guessed. The day after the afternoon they'd shanghaied her. She'd slept a long time.

    And she didn't have to look at a map to know that she was somewhere off the northern coast of South America.

    They hadn't hurt her. In fact, her kidnappers had sustained considerable damage themselves from her struggles, because they'd been taking great pains not to hurt her. And she understood why, of course.

    Andres would have them shot if they harmed her.

    The cabin was small, but there was enough room to stretch the kinks from her legs. On a small table near the bunk she discovered a tray covered with a linen napkin, under which reposed an appetizing meal of cold chicken and salad. She ignored the food but poured a glass of wine from the carafe and sipped it.

    Pacing the restricted floor space absently, she stretched aching muscles and automatically straightened her clothing--snug, faded blue jeans and a casual summer blouse the same color as her eyes.

    As the last of the cobwebs cleared from her mind, she sighed and opened the door, unsurprised to find that it wasn't locked. Where, after all, could she escape to? She went up the steps and onto the deck, squinting into the bright sunlight.

    "Good afternoon, miss."

    She looked at the man who had spoken. He was a lean, hard man somewhere in his thirties, with soulful eyes and a rather chillingly gentle smile. She didn't know him.

    "Hello." Somewhat mockingly she saluted him with her wineglass.

    "The food--"

    "I wasn't hungry."

    He half bowed, oddly graceful. "I am the captain, miss."

    She nodded. "When will we arrive?"

    "In a few hours."

    After a long silence she sighed. "I don't suppose," she said, "there's a boat I could steal to make good my escape?"

    He blinked. "No, miss."

    "And I also don't suppose it would be at all wise of me to jump overboard and try swimming for it?"

    "No, miss."

    "Then don't bother to hover over me, Captain," she said, and turned away to walk toward the bow.

    Siran grimaced faintly, half in admiration and half in doubt. An interesting woman, his passenger. The men who had brought her to the ship off Trinidad had borne ample proof of her ability to defend herself, yet she seemed perfectly calm now. He watched her critically for a moment.

    She was a tiny woman, barely five feet tall if that, dressed casually in jeans, a green blouse, and running shoes. And though another woman would have probably called her petite, no man worth his salt would have missed the surprisingly lush curves of breasts and hips, guaranteed to stop traffic and haunt dreams.

    Her hair was that rare, striking color between red and gold, and it hung thick and shining to the middle of her back. It was styled simply in a layered cut from a center part, and that silky, burnished hair framed a face that was almost too delicately perfect to be real. She was like a painting; every feature was finely drawn with artistic excellence, from her straight nose to the sweet curve of her lips. And in that strikingly perfect face, her eyes were simply incredible: a clear, pale green; huge and shadowed by long, thick lashes.

    Siran remembered another woman on a yacht under his command, a woman so like this one that they could have been twins. From what he had seen and heard, that woman had found love on...
