John Sinclair leads a double life. Though he’s the illegitimate son of the infamous cad, Charles Sinclair, he seems to be a rich and prosperous gentleman. In reality, he is the notorious pirate known as Jean Pierre, The French Terror. He preys on British ships, carrying out a secret vendetta guaranteed to financially ruin several wealthy families. He’s driven and determined and takes what he wants with a reckless abandon.
Sarah Teasdale lives quietly in the country at her family’s estate on the English coast. With her father’s death, she’s at the mercy of her cruel relatives, and she’d give anything to change her fate. When dashing, mysterious John Sinclair arrives for a visit, she’s stunned to learn that her stepbrother has gambled away her home to John. Everything is lost—including Sarah—with John claiming she now belongs to him and he can use her however he wishes. And he has many ideas as to the exact sort of role he’d like her to fill.
Normally, John wouldn’t have bothered with a sheltered innocent like Sarah. But he simply can’t resist. As a man who enjoys only the finest things in life, Sarah might turn out to be just what he’s always needed.
