Lord Cheverley never wanted to go to war, but when he eloped against his father's wishes, his furious father forced him to choose--either take a naval commission, or have his marriage annulled. Devastated physically and emotionally by eight years of war, a shipwreck and six years in the captivity of a brutal pirate, Cheverley returns to England to find that the courts have declared him dead and his wife is entertaining suitors. Should he demand his rightful place, disrupting his family's lives, or should he return to sea, seeking vengeance against the pirate? He sets out to find the answer in disguise.
Penelope once believed in love, but then the man who swept her off her feet deserted her, leaving her and her unborn child utterly alone. Now a widow, she will do anything to protect her son, including enlisting the aid of a mysterious sea captain to uncover the true intentions of her devious suitors. When the captain awakens something in Penelope she thought long dead, she begins to suspect he is no stranger. But, as they peel back the layers of a deadly plot, can this broken family heal their wounds in time to save what really matters?
