In the England of 1811, it's perfectly sensible for a gardener's daughter to accept a post as lady's maid. Indeed, it's a great opportunity for a respectable upper servant's position. But Anne Hazlett's reasons for accepting the post have little to do with either sense or propriety. All her life, Anne has been haunted by a dream of a tropical island: a place with white sands and green palms, where she is queen. When her mistress sets sail to India, Anne is eager to accompany her, hoping for the chance to see exotic places like the island of her dreams. When the ship sinks, Anne is abandoned by her mistress, rescued by the handsome, ne'er-do-well Lt. Horatio Merivale, then picked up by pirates along with a handful of other survivors. Amid such a whirlwind, Anne finds little time to think of her dream. Little does she know, but destiny is finally sweeping her toward her island -- and making sure the queen-to-be will have her king. Events in The Wildest Shore are all a little larger than life: full of adventure, swashbuckling, and feats of daring, in a story where love can make even the wildest dreams come true.
