The Earl's Secret Treasure

Title: The Earl's Secret Treasure
Author: Nicole Renee
Genre: Historical Romance
Release Date: November 1, 2019
Karina Bardot, daughter to the Duke and Duchess of Essex has always been overlooked. Plain, and too involved in her novels, she was resigned to being a spinster for the rest of her life.No man could possibly match the heroes she read about in her quiet time, so, she was content with letting her books be the loves of her life.
Quite thrilled with it actually.
That was until her parents informed her of her sudden betrothal to a Marquis. She barely even knew of her own engagement, and now she is to meet her future husband? Now Karina’s forced to endure a season filled with endless parties, mind-numbing conversation, and dress shopping. Something she detested more than ballrooms. Captain Cole Black asked his men to do one job. Find the woman who stole expensive fabrics from their trade deal, and return to the ship posthaste. He was leery of being in London for too long, as having left the high society life, with its obligations and stifling rules of decorum long ago. Cole was confident that his men would return with the woman responsible for their delay, and continue on their journey. Only his men returned with someone else entirely. And the ship had already left port.
Drat.
Will Karina finally get the excitement, and adventure she’s been craving all along? And Will Cole finally realize that his greatest treasure is not lost at sea?
“The ship already left the docks several hours ago. We are en route to the Isles of Scilly.”
Eyes wide, Karina plopped on the bed she recently vacated.
Dear heavens, what on earth have I got myself into now? “What?!” she screeched, unable to help herself. It was one thing to be placed aboard a ship, accused of stealing silks. It was another to be traveling said sea unaccompanied, without any real protection.
Surely my mother will expire on the spot! Sighing, Cole told his men to leave. Once the cabin door was shut behind them, he spoke.
“Lady Bardot, I was just as surprised as you were to see you in my private chambers when I came from town. Ackley quickly informed me of the situation; however, by the time I descended to my abode, we were well and off before I could return you to your place of residence.”
Trying to process this bit of information, she attempted to calm her racing heart.
“Captain Black, Dr. Ackley, said we are heading to the Isles of Scilly?”
Walking over to the small porthole, Cole rested his arms on either side of it.
“That is correct. It is our final stop, and where most of the men, as well as myself, reside. It should take us a sennight to arrive.”
