Publisher's Summary

The New York Times best-selling author of Ransom weaves the delightful, sensual story of two lovers destined for high adventure and blissful rapture!

A child bride, Sara Winchester had grown into a winsome beauty, joyfully anticipating the day when her husband Nathan, Marquess of St. James, would return to claim her heart at last. Charmingly innocent, she dismissed the ancient feud that divided Nathan's family from her own.. .and she was totally unaware of his past exploits as the notorious pirate, Pagan. The man who now stood before her was perplexing, arrogant and powerfully handsome... a warrior-gentleman whose gentle touch aroused her to the wildest, deepest pleasures of love.

Nathan had never bared his soul to any woman, but he was soon utterly beguiled and exasperated by Sara’s sweet, defiant ways. Aboard his ship, The Seahawk, she was brave, imperious and determined to win his heart completely - yet upon their return to England, her love would be sorely tested as a vile conspiracy tried to tear them apart. With their future at stake, they would discover the true destiny of their passion... for all time!

©1991 Julie Garwood (P)2013 Brilliance Audio, Inc.

    "Oft repeated, oft enjoyed"

    I have listened to the Gift several times. I live the story, the characters, most especially the two main characters. They are immensely engaging and attractive. When I need a lift it can be assured that I will listen to it again.

    Solid story in that it flowed well and came to a satisfying end.
    It was fun to listen to.
    The reader does not do men as well as I would like.

    "Great Book"

    I read this book for the first time 25 years or so ago. I loved it then, and I love it now. It's the first "romance novel" to make me laugh out loud. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to it.
    Thank you.

    Story
    "The Romantic meets the Cynic."

    One of my favorite books as a teenager. Yes, Sara is a naïve girl, but she is so good natured and makes me laugh at her antics you gotta love her. Sometimes you don't always want to read the same type of character in books and Sara is different. To me this a warm hearted romance and if you are looking for a light adventure this could be for you. Of course this is the third book in the series so you may want to read the other two books first, but I think it can be read as a stand alone. Narrator is okay, I will admit she is not my favorite but she does a better job in this book than the last two book in the series.

    "CUTE COUPLE"

    The lovers in this story are very cute. Their marriage is arranged as children and when they finally meet as adults, their attraction to each other is undeniable. She is such a klutz, but so well intentioned that he forgives her every time she brings about one catastrophe after another. They are the embodiment of opposites attracting.
