A PRIZE OF WAR . . . A great Spanish heiress, a young noblewoman and for a brilliant marriage in her native land, Dona Dominica de Rada y Sylva was captured in a sea battle by the notorious English freebooter, Sir Nicholas Beauvallet. Seizing the chance, she tried to kill the hateful pirate -- but as he took her arm and held it she found herself strangely captured by his boyish smile.
She could not believe it when he set her, unharmed, on the shores of Spain. Nor could she still her beating heart when he vowed to return to her, braving all the perils that the Inquisition and King Philip could devise.
