If You Give a Smuggler a Secret… From the moment he discovered her with a sword in one hand, dagger in the other sparring in a hidden meadow, smuggler and ship’s captain Landon Hart has been intrigued by that independent, spirited tempest, Keelan Grey. But, he isn’t prepared for the impact she has on his tightly guarded heart, or the trouble she manages to attract. From the moment she let him in on her secret training, Keelan knew Landon Hart was going to be a storm on her horizon. With an assassin killing off members of her family one by one, and a father trying to arrange a marriage between her and a vile plantation owner, Keelan had enough on her plate without an exasperating, rakishly handsome, ship’s captain getting in the way of her plots and schemes. When Landon’s own dangerous secrets collide with Keelan’s, it’s the perfect storm.

If You Give a Rake a Reason… A deathbed confession plunges Keelan Grey into a dark plot of deception and revenge. As enemies close in, she is forced to act a charade and soon her life depends on her playing the part. Now, with the mystery of her true identity to be solved, she must rely on her wits and skill with a blade to both survive and defend the man she loves. Smuggler and ship’s captain Landon Hart has secret cargo to deliver up north, but when pirates kidnap the impetuous beauty who stole his heart, he prepares for battle. Rescuing her turns out to be the easy part. With a bounty on her head that has too many watchers out looking for her, keeping her close seems like a good plan. Until she disappears.

If You Give a Smuggler a Secret, If You Give a Rake a Reason and If You Give a Hellion Your Heart is a trilogy that follows the saga of Keelan Grey and Landon Hart on their adventure of discovery and a love of a lifetime.
