To be loved like that was her one goal. She wanted
to be protected and to feel safe in the arms of the man she
loved, to trust him. That was the love she sought.
Now she found herself on a ship going to the harem
of a pirate captain on an island very far from her beloved
family. There was no way that her life would end this way.
She would not accept this.
