Amazon.com Secret Illusions
Lord James Armstrong fell for the charms of one woman while in pursuit of another. Disarmed by her beauty he was unprepared when Gabrielle declined his pursuit. Enticed to stay and convince her otherwise, duty forced him to finish his mission, before he could return for Gabrielle. Later, when she accidentially landed in his lap, James took the opportunity to convince her his feelings were sincere, while realizing for the first time, they really were.
James stirred her senses, tempted her morals and confused her thoughts. Still, Gabrielle believed his intentions are sincere, until she found him alone with another woman. Broken hearted, she fled. In an attempt to escape, ironically, she ended up on the very same ship James had boarded. After that, all hell breaks loose!
