A pirate and a high-born maiden, brought together by a legendary sword.... Dashing French pirate Jean-Philippe Beauvisage revels in a life of complete freedom...until the night at a ball in Georgian London, when a Russian beauty quietly steals his heart.

When her arrogant ship´s captain, Tobias Ormond, insists that she attend a ball with him, Antonia reluctantly agrees. The instant connection between Jean-Philippe and Antonia is soul-deep, but it seems that there cannot be a future for them. She sails off to America and he returns to his corsair´s life at sea...until an ancient Roman sword which may be cursed forces Beauvisage to chase down the very ship carrying the woman he loves. Take to the high seas with Jean-Philippe Beauvisage as he plots to capture his lady and win her heart of fragile stars. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Tim Campbell.
