Overview

From USA Today bestselling author Glynnis Campbell... A notorious Scottish rake becomes an unwitting stowaway on a ship bound for America, until a spirited young botanist restores his reputation, and he becomes the only one who can save her from a twisted fate.

Amateur botanist Charlotte de Ware couldn't be more excited about sailing with her orchid collection from Scotland to New York to visit kin for Christmas. When she stumbles upon a dashing stowaway on the ship, she refuses to let the captain throw him overboard. But she soon questions her charity when she learns that the stowaway surgeon is a notorious rake. Travis Jameson never meant to go to America. But his controversial medical studies have made him a dangerous target, and his friends spirit him aboard a packet ship for his own safety. He finds adventure on the ship and love in the charming yet unattainable lass who comes to his aid. But when they reach their destination and must part ways, a terrible secret and a twist of fate reverses their fortunes, and it's up to the tarnished scoundrel to save the desperate young miss.
