Lady Dona St Columb is infamous at the raffish Restoration court: ripe for any folly, any outrage that will spice the futile tedium of her days. And yet behind the bright façade, Dona yearns for a very different life.

And there she finds the boundless passion her spirit craves ¿ daring to love the pirate hunted by all Cornwall, a Frenchman with a soul as unfettered as her own, a man who gambles his life against a moment¿s joy.
And as the net closes, Dona must make the most difficult of choices...

The Restoration Court knows Lady Dona St Columb to be ripe for any folly, any outrage that will alter the tedium of her days. But there is another, secret Dona who longs for a life of honest love -- and sweetness, even if it is spiced with danger.
It is this Dona who flees the stews of London for remote Navron, looking for peace of mind in its solitary woods and hidden creeks. She finds there the passion her spirit craves -- in the love of a daring pirate hunted by all Cornwall, a Frenchman who, like Dona, would gamble his life for a moment's joy.Review:
