Two sisters and a brother, separated as children, raised as strangers, discover the crest of the thunderbolt is the only clue to the legacy they share.... He had a rogue's soul...and a gentleman's heart.
On his own since the tender age of 10, his only clue to his parentage a thick gold ring etched with a lightning bolt, French privateer Dominic St. Clair was well accustomed to making the most of life's opportunities. But when he seized an American ship attempting to sail through Napoleon's blockade of England, he found more than a valuable cache of guns and ammunition - he found the captain's flame-haired daughter, Miss Abigail Fitzgerald. Now, as fate sweeps him and Abigail to England's shores and into the path of danger, Dominic must at last face his destiny...and fight for the woman who holds his heart in her hands.
