In return for a night of unparalleled pleasure, a dashing condemned criminal consents to wed a beautiful heiress, thereby rescuing her with his name from an impending and abhorred arranged union. But in the fading echoes of hollow wedding vows, a solemn promise is broken, as a sensuous free spirit takes flight to a lush Caribbean paradise, abandoning the stranger she married to face the gallows unfulfilled. But Ruark Beauchamp's destiny is now eternally intertwined with that of the tempestuous, intoxicating Shanna. He will be free . . . and he will find her. For no iron ever forged can imprison his resolute passion. And no hangman's noose will deny Ruark the ecstasy that is rightfully his.Read Less

The book was in decent order, however it was not what I was really looking for but I kept it anyway. I wanted a mass media hardcover edition book and received a book club edition. The book did arrive packaged neatly and in a very timely fashion.

Great book in great condition
I ordered this book in large print and so glad I did. I have it in the regular print, hardcover, and much too hard to read. I love Kathleen Woodiwiss' books and this is no exception. Book came in an orderly time fashion, packaged clean and neat, and in great shape for a used book.

She was beautiful, and as ruthless and cunning as a man, Shanna had yet to meet the man who could best her intellectually; but that changed. She got more than she bargained for in Roarke. The adventures they went on and the dangerous situations they survived were extraordinary. I bought this book the first day it was released and couldn't put it down. I continue to go back from time to time and re-read my favorite parts. Kathleen. Woodiwiss is my favorite author and you can't go wrong with any of her books.
