the heat of their searing island... ISLAND FIRE by Bobbi Smith

18+ An untouched young girl finds a gorgeous man shipwrecked and washed up onshore on a tropical island in the Pacific and they find pure ecstasy and the promise of eternal love. 


An untouched young girl finds a gorgeous man shipwrecked and washed up onshore on a tropical island in the Pacific and they find pure ecstasy and the promise of eternal love. 

Espri Duchant saves the shipwrecked shipping magnate, and when his gaze meets hers, he celebrates his good luck. Adrift at sea, he survived when all the others perished. Innocent Espri Duchant has always sworn to guard her virtue. But when she discovers the handsome stranger lying on her beach, she soon vows she will kiss his chiseled lips, feel his tender touch. Espri is eager to learn the mysteries of sensual ecstasy—and when she finally succumbs to the passion of his powerful embrace, it is as if she has led him to it. Espri takes him to a sun-drenched island cove, the perfect hideaway with the lapping water like a cool sheet against the heat of their searing island love. 


After being kidnapped, shanghaied, shipwrecked, and nearly drowned, Mitchell Williams sees no reason to wait for paradise—he’s already there! He will one day have to return to the helm of his profitable shipping company, but the next sailing ship will not pass by the remote Pacific island for many months. In the meantime, nothing can stop him from exulting in the sensual pleasure of this woman, her flawless flesh and natural beauty. She teases him that he will never turn to another and that no woman will ever satisfy him the way she does. Soon all he craves is her. He is enchanted by Espri’s island fire.

Mitch felt little remorse for ending his relationship with Lucinda as he left her home. He had told her when they’d first started seeing each other that he wanted no commitment. Long ago he’d decided he would not marry, and that wasn’t going to change. He made his way to where his driver was waiting for him.

“Let’s go home, Nelson,” he ordered as he opened the carriage door.

The driver nodded in agreement as Mitch climbed inside.

Bill had been hiding in the coach, and he was more than ready to attack when his intended victim entered the conveyance. Springing forward, he took Mitch completely by surprise as he swung his blackjack with unerring accuracy. As Mitch collapsed heavily across the seat, unconscious, Joe, anxious to help, jumped down from this position atop the vehicle and looked inside.

“How’d you do?”
“No problem. He’s out.” 
“You didn’t hit him too hard, did you?”
“He’s still breathing.”
“Good. I didn’t want you to hit him like you did the driver. He ain’t worth nothing to Jack dead.”
“Don’t worry so much. This worked out better. Since he and the driver are about the same size, all we gotta do is switch their clothes. You got a rope?”
“Yeah, let’s tie Williams up just in case he comes to. We don’t want him giving us any trouble.”
“He ain’t going to give us any trouble. Why don’t you get us out of here. We can take care of the rest of this down on the waterfront.”

Joe climbed onto the driver’s seat and drove the carriage away at a deceptively casual pace.
