Killian Kinross, heir to the Scottish title of Lord for the house of Rosyth, is the black sheep of his family. A gambler by trade, he finds himself the owner of a ship. About the same time he is also falsely accused of being the person responsible for a young lady's delicate condition. The result is an unexpected trip to Sweden and his decision to prove he isn't the scoundrel his grandfather believes him to be.

After arriving in Sweden with his letter of introduction to Robert Fergusson for employment purposes, he finds himself rather fascinated with Mr. Fergusson's step-daughter, Jessamijn. From this point forward the reader becomes embroiled with a story of deception, romance and even travel to China.

This is a long book and I felt the author did a good job in maintaining pace overall. Towards the end it feels slightly rushed but not to the point where it interfered overwhelmingly with my enjoyment of the story. That rushed feeling, however, along with some formatting problems, is what leads me to give the book four stars. Historical romance fans like myself should enjoy the story quite a bit.
