Previously published 8/2001 as "Amarantha" by Leisure Books.

He smuggled many men, but could he steal her heart?

"Melanie Jackson is a talent to watch."

It was not Robert Burns's elfin knight who greeted Amarantha on her arrival in Cornwall, but the wild rector, Tamlane Adair. The rumors of his nighttime rides across the moor only heightened his mystery. Listening to his silken voice she could almost forget the anguish that had driven her from London and the Jacobite rebellion that had cost her so much. In his eyes, Amarantha could see both the dangers of the Cornish coast but also a passionate promise.


"Intriguing... Ms. Jackson's descriptions of the Cornish countryside were downright seductive."
--The Romance Reader


"A wickedly sexy tale!"
--Christine Feehan, New York Times Bestselling Author (on The Selkie)

"... delivers sizzling romance and ghoulish thrills at a breathtaking clip."
--Publishers Weekly (on Traveler)

"Readers of Laurel K. Hamilton will enjoy this complex tale..."
--Booklist (on Still Life)


Melanie Jackson is the award-winning author of more than fifty novels, novellas and poems published in various languages.
