#86 (#22) - His Wicked Kiss ~ Gaelen Foley
This is the last one in the Knight Family series - the missing brother - Captain Black (Lord) Jack Knight.
The first of the Hawkscliffe Harlot's illegitimate children, his father was an Irish Boxing Champion.
Sick to the back teeth with the shame heaped on him by the ton because of his birth, he ends up owning an international shipping and trade company Knight Enterprises, and spends his life pretty much on the ocean wave ...... until one trip down the Orenoco River he comes across the beautiful Eden Farraday in a tree above him collecting orchids.
She's been taken to the jungle by her Botanist father and longs for London Society. A request to Jack to take her away is turned down, so she stows away on his ship .... soon to be caught by him and made to pay!
I have to say I loved this story, and Jack Knight game very close to Anthony Blake (who is one of my all time favourite heroes).
A 5 star read ****. What a shame I've now finished the Knight family series.
