Historical Romance published April 24, 2013
Julia Anderson is on a perilous quest to find the man who murdered her brother. Hot on the killer's trail, she stumbles into the arms of a man who resembles a fearsome pirate straight out of her childhood nightmares. But when this dark haired, blue-eyed pirate kisses her, the only thing he steals is her heart.
Captain Payton Tyler is on his own quest. He's distracted from his goal when an innocent, blond-haired beauty materializes out of the misty fog. When she disappears just as suddenly, he follows after her.
From the hellhole of the Barbary Coast to the refined society of old Sacramento, danger and intrigue thrust Julia and Payton together--and into each other's arms. As their desire for each other grows, so does Julia's suspicion. She fears the man who holds her in his arms, the man who holds her heart, may also be the man who killed her brother.
Black Ravens Review:
Marilyn Yarbrough had me enthralled from beginning to end in Payton's Woman. I fell in love with the Captain and his charms. In addition, Marilyn Yarbrough did an awesome job in this book of making me applaud her imagination throughout the story. Moreover, the passionate scenes between Captain Payton and Julia definitely blew my mind away. Captain Payton is a man no woman can resist.Payton's Woman by Marilyn Yarbrough is highly recommended by this reviewer to any reader who loves a pirate and the roguish tactics he uses to make a sensible woman go wild with passion.
Rated 5 Ravens and a Recommended Read by Lena!
