Lady Overton’s Perilous Journey

by Vikki Vaught


GENRE: Historical Romantic Suspense



When her son’s life is threatened, Anissa, Marchioness of Overton, seeks refuge by sailing to America. Before the ship reaches the high seas, sparks fly between her and Captain Alex Hawks. Although the young widow may be lonely, and afraid, she cannot risk the diversion a romantic entanglement could bring, no matter how much she wants to lose herself in the captain’s embrace.

The Captain vows to protect the young Lord Overton, but can offer no assurance that the marchioness will leave his ship with her virtue intact. Alex is drawn to Anissa’s beauty and courage, as a hummingbird is to the nectar of a flower. How long can he fight a losing battle before he surrenders and makes her his own?

Will Alex be able to keep this remarkable woman and her child safe? Will his passion for Anissa be enough or will their differences keep them apart?





Once her son had run off most of his excessive energy, Anissa took Harry back to their cabin. When they entered, three bolts of cloth lay on the lower berth, a gorgeous silver-blue, watered silk, another one of lavender muslin, and the third bolt, a dove gray bombazine. Over on the chair lay another bolt of brown, worsted wool. When she picked up the fabrics, a piece of foolscap fell to the bed. She picked it up and read—

Dear Anissa,

Please accept my apology for my abominable behavior last night. I have no excuse for my ungentlemanly conduct. I promise it will not happen again. Here is the fabric I told you about last night. I hope you will accept it as a peace offering. If you will trust me to NOT make any unwanted advances, I would deem it an honor if you would dine with me at eight o’clock tonight.

Your servant,


Though the note did not negate her own abhorrent behavior, nothing could do that, to refuse his invitation would be unkind and show a lack of trust after his sincere apology. Anissa still trusted Alex and knew he would never intentionally harm her. Opening her reticule, she pulled out a pencil, turned over the piece of foolscap, and wrote—

Dear Alex,

I was as much at fault as you were. Of course, I forgive you. I will be happy to dine with you this evening. Thank you for the beautiful cloth.

Respectfully yours,


Her spirits lifted. Alex did not see her behavior as wanton. Looking back on what happened the night before, she realized nothing bad had really happened. They had kissed and gotten a bit carried away. However, they both realized it had been a mistake, and that they could not let it happen again.

She would accept. Alex would be a gentleman, and she was coming to value his friendship a great deal. A harmless dinner with her new friend could not hurt, as long as she remained in complete control.



AUTHOR Bio and Links:

Vikki Vaught started her writing career when a story invaded her mind and would not leave.

Over the last few years, she has written more than a half dozen historical romances and is presently working on her next. Her new release, Lady Overton’s Perilous Journey, is the first book in her Honorable Rogue series.

Vikki loves a “Happily Ever After”, and she writes them in her stories. While romance is the central theme of all her books, she includes some significant historical event or place in all her novels.

While all her books are love stories, she has also written short contemporary sweet romances as Vikki McCombie and erotic romances using the pen name of V.L. Edwards.

For the last decade, Vikki has lived in the beautiful foothills of the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee with her beloved husband, Jim, who is the most tolerant man in the world to put up with her when she is in a writing frenzy. When she is not writing or working her day job, you’ll find her curled up in a comfortable chair reading her Kindle, lost in a good book with a cup of tea at her side.
