Treasured Lily by Dawn Brower

Lilliana needs one thing—freedom. Randall’s willing to assist her, for a fee. One kiss and

he’ll help her attain her deepest desire.

What Lilliana Marsden wants—she gets. The thing she believes she desires most is to

live in Charleston on a plantation. Her problem? Parents who refuse to listen to her. Lily decides

to make her wishes come true, and who better than a handsome American ship captain to help


Randall Collins finds Lilliana bewitching and quickly falls under her spell. When she

asks if he can take her with him on his next voyage he finds himself agreeing—for a tiny fee. A

kiss as payment and he’ll take her anywhere she wants.

As they set sail sparks fly between them. Will Lily find something more desirable

than owning a plantation and can Rand convince her he’s the better choice?

He wondered how far he could push her. The decision to give into her and take her on his

ship had already been made. Lilliana just didn’t know he already decided to let her come back to

America with him, but only because it worked in his own plans.

“What do I get for my trouble?” he asked. “I’d be risking quite a lot to assist you with

your scheme.”

“What do you want? Money? I certainly can afford to pay for my passage.”

Rand’s lips rose into a cocky smile. He desired a lot from her, but at this point only one

thing would do as payment. Would the lovely lady be willing to give it to him? He had nothing

to lose and only one way to find out.

“How about a kiss?”

Lilliana looked stunned as she stared unblinkingly at him, and then just as suddenly she

stopped dancing right in the middle of the dance floor. Her face flushed a pretty shade of pink as

she began to move to the music again with him in the lead.

“How forward of you. I’m not sure I like your idea of compensation.”

“It’s a small thing, one little kiss. To be given to me at a time of my choosing.” He leaned

in close to her and whispered in her ear. “Are you afraid?”

Lilliana’s breath sucked deep into her chest, and he could feel her slowly exhale it in little

pants. Her pulse raced on her wrist beneath the palm of his hand and thrummed a small beat as

he held it firmly in his grasp. A blush formed on her cheeks turning them a nice shade of pink,

and her lips parted in anticipation. Her body’s reactions suggested she had an interest in kissing

him also. Would she take the bait and give him what he desired? He needed her to accept the

proposal. Once she did he’d have her sailing with him in a few short days.

“All right, you have a deal,” she agreed.
