It’s 1813 and all Phoebe Lee wants out of life is to
practice midwifery in Loudon County, Virginia. When Belinda, her
pregnant sister-in-law, presses Phoebe to accompany her onto a British
privateer in order to cross the Atlantic and save her husband from an
English prison, Phoebe tries to refuse, then finds herself kidnapped.
Rafe Docherty is a man in search of revenge. His ship is no place for
women, but he needs Belinda in order to obtain information about the man
who destroyed his family and his life. Between Belinda’s whining and
Phoebe’s hostility, Rafe can’t help but wonder if he made the right
choice. When it becomes apparent there is an enemy among them on the
ship, the stakes are raised.
Will they reach the English shore in time?
