FROM THE SAFE HAVEN OF A LONDON ORPHANAGE TO THE SAVAGE SEAS OF LOVE... A safe, respectable orphanage was the only home Aurora Dayne had ever known. Teaching there would mean security.
But when the mysterious letter arrived, offering her a position as lady's companion, Aurora seized the chance, embarking for Jamaica with her sole legacy--a little golden lizard bearing a strange rhyme. And so began the daring odyssey that would throw her into the clutches of a ruth privateer. Feared by men, desired by women, Vashon's eyes gleamed green as he vowed to possess the innocent beauty who held the key to his quest. Could anything ever equal his obsession to retrieve the legendary emerald--the Star of Aran? Held captive on a secret Caribbean isle--at Dragonard, his solitary lair--Aurora would struggle against her own passions, determined to tame the very dragon who had awakened her fire.
