Desperate to escape a loveless marriage and society's constraints, pampered heiress Sophia Hathaway jilts her groom, packs up her paints and sketchbook, and assumes a new identity, posing as a governess to secure passage on the Aphrodite. She wants a life of her own: unsheltered, unconventional, uninhibited. But it's one thing to sketch her most wanton fantasies, and quite another to face the dangerously handsome libertine who would steal both her virtue and her gold.
To any well-bred lady, Benedict "Gray" Grayson is trouble in snug-fitting boots. A conscienceless scoundrel who sails the seas for pleasure and profit, Gray lives for conquest but will this counterfeit governess prove to be a rogue's redemption?
Book two of Tessa Dare's sparkling Regency Trilogy. Other books in this series are: Goddess of the Hunt and Lady of Persuasion
Dare's second novel cements her place as a "not to be missed" author. Her gift is for creating stories that are filled with adventure, three-dimensional characters and exciting plots, yet she maintains the purest form of romance
Dare's prose is polished and refined, her descriptions superb, and her characters stunningly realistic...Goddess of the Hunt taught me to expect a lot of Dare, and Surrender of a Siren raised my expectations of her even more.
