Sparrow, a former princess, never liked palace life. She's much happier working her farm with her best friend and former nanny, Shea-Ann. Only when Sparrow's gentle heart forces her to buy the hated pirate Lock the White, who is suffering unspeakable torture at the slave auction, does the real trouble start. Rough, tough, and spiteful, Lock seems to despise Sparrow for saving his life. Only Lock kws the truth he doesn't want to admit. He's in love with the independent young farmer whose tender touches and mouth-watering curves are driving him toward the last thing he wants: redemption.
