This is a prequel to the Agents of the Crown series.
Having lived her life inside the walls of the Saint-Denis convent, Claire Donet had no idea her father was a pirate. So when Simon Powell steals her away in retaliation of something her father did, she is taken by complete surprise.
Simon is furious that his ship and crew have been taken. In hopes of getting both back, he takes the one thing that means more than anything to the thief...his daughter. Simon didn't count on finding a mutual attraction with his captive.
Knowing that he will never get his crew and ship back if he gives into his passions, Simon fights what could be his toughest battle yet.
