“Captain Imena Leung, imperial privateer, is a woman who answers to no one – until her parents decree that she must marry and give up her ship. Her employer, the magnificent Duke Maxime, is expected to marry according to his king’s wishes. Neither is free to love as they please. But when Captain Leung learns of a plot to assassinate Maxime, she abducts him and takes to the seas to protect him. And aboard her ship, fighting to survive pirates, storms, and the sex rituals they encounter on a desert island, they learn to live by nobody’s rules except their own.
In this sequel to The Duchess, Her Maid, The Groom and Their Lover (December 2008), Janssen creates an erotic world aglow with even more lush details. But even in this fantasy setting, the characters resonate with the maturity and the subtle, wry sweetness that Janssen’s readers have come to expect. In Captain Leung, Janssen shows the full glory of a powerful woman meeting her match.”
