Bent on revenge after five years on a prison ship, Sean O'Toole, Earl of Kildare, kidnapped his enemy's daughter.  Her name was Emerald, an innocent beauty he had known long ago, who had stirred his senses like no other woman.  But now he planned to seduce her, abandon her...and bring disgrace to the Montagues.  First he would restore the fire to her eyes, make her hunger for his steely embrace -- then use her in an act of vengeance.  But Sean didn't expect to find himself caught in the sudden heat of his own desires, bewitched by the magnificent beauty he'd planned to betray...
