Maniah Ryu | 3 comments Possibly published 1995 or earlier. This is what I can recall of the book. The heroine is an English girl who who was kidnapped and sold into indentured slavery. Either an uncle or a spouse hired folks to do this, to gain control of her inheritance.

The heroine is on a boat bound for America, when it gets attacked by pirates, her and a paid passenger get abducted by pirates. I think this other girls name is Rosaline or something similar.

Rosaline's fiancee is a plantation owner in America, and also does a bit of piracy on the side, I think. He breaks into the pirate stronghold to rescue Rosaline, but grabs the Heroine by mistake. She doesnt correct him on his error even though he kisses her in the dark and calls her by Rosaline's name, because she wants to be saved!

When the hero realizes the mistake, he puts the Heroine to work on the plantation, and starts searching for his lost love again. He doesn't believe her story of abduction at all. The two eventually have sex. The truth about her abduction comes to light when her cousin visits the plantation and spots her. The Hero and Heroine are forced to marry because he feels bad about having sex with her now.

The lost Rosaline had been banging the pirate captain the whole time, plotting against the Hero.

It was a very good romance and I have been dying to read it again, but I cannot remember the title or author to save my life.

No idea what your book is Maniah. But it sounds like a lovely bodice ripper--and don't some of those make the most delish reads? :o)

Maniah Ryu | 3 comments Thank you ladies! So far I don't recognize the book in the lists given. I haven't had time to look at every single book yet though, so maybe it is there.

I'm starting to feel like the title did contain the word fury and possibly some form of Tempt. Temptress, tempest, temptation... Hmmm

I also feel like I recall a stormy ocean in the background of the cover.

Michele | 2357 comments I don't know your book but I love this line in the description: "The lost Rosaline had been banging the pirate captain the whole time, plotting against the Hero." Bad Rosaline!!

Salem's Daughter isn't your book (no plantation) but it has a lot of the same elements mixed in -- pirates, servitude, daring rescues, and a crazy wife to boot -- so you might like that one as well :)

Ai Delos | 1 comments I'm also looking for that book that I become obsess with it and now I think i found it!! It is CAPTIVE FLAME by Catherine Creel!

Sadly, I cannot find an ebook copy of this one. Help please!

I hope this book is the one you are also looking for. :)
