Mary Jo Putney

Though most of Mary Jo Putney's  books have been historical romances, she has also published three contemporary romances, several paranormal historicals with strong fantasy elements, a young adult historical fantasy trilogy, and numerous novellas and short stories. She is currently writing the New York Times list bestselling Lost Lords historical romance series for Kensington.

Mary Jo is a hybrid author these days, meaning she writes new romances for her New York publisher, Kensington, but she also is an indie publisher of many of her backlist books, including the Fallen Angels series, the Silk Trilogy, and her contemporary Starting Over trilogy, as well as several stand alone novels and many shorter works.

An outcast on the high seas…

The son of a proud naval dynasty, Gabriel Hawkins was born to command the sea, until he leaves the Royal Navy in disgrace and is disowned by his family. As captain of his own ship, he’s earned his living in ways both legal and illegal, and his experience makes him the best choice to ransom an aristocratic beauty captured by Barbary pirates.

Having avoided the traps of convention and marriage, Lady Aurora Lawrence is horrified by the prospect of spending her life as a harem slave. Her only hope of escape is a quiet, steely captain who has a history with her captor-and who will do anything to free Rory. Together they undertake a dangerous mission through troubled waters-and encounter another kind of danger as attraction burns hot within the close confines of his ship. But even if they endure the perils of the sea and enemy lands, can their love survive a return to England, where the distance between a disgraced captain and an earl’s daughter is wider than the ocean?
