A New York Times, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly bestseller -- with sales that have skyrocketed to 2-1/2 million trade paperbacks and 12-1/2 million mass market -- Bertrice Small is one of today's hottest romance authors. She has long thrilled readers with her lushly detailed, sensuous historical romances, including her highly acclaimed Skye O'Malley series, and now, she delivers the second book in her enthralling Skye's Legacy. An exciting, passionate tale, "Bedazzled" is the sweeping story of Jasmine's eldest daughter, a 17th-century heiress destined to find love in an unlikely place.
Determined to elope with a peer whose name has been blackened by his murderous brother, Lady India Lindley boards a ship bound for Italy with her intended. But when the vessel is taken captive by Ottoman pirates, the independent beauty becomes a slave to Caynan Reis, ruler of the Barbary state of El Sinut -- a mysterious man with a secret past. India doesn't expect to fall in love with this infuriating man whose will is as strong as hers -- but she does. Nor does she expect that a revolt by Istanbul's powerful Janissaries will tear her from his arms. But fate has a different plan for the proud beauty.
