Description

Amelia Beckett is delighted to be a widow. Married by proxy to a man she'd never met, Amelia recognizes that a fortuitous entry into widowhood frees her from meddlesome chaperones and matchmakers. Heiress to her mother's sugar plantation in Jamaica, she happily anticipates working in a man's world, with the additional credibility of her new title: Lady Lockwood.But with the arrival of Captain Sir William Drake, her plans quickly go awry . . .William has traversed the Atlantic with one purpose. If he cannot prove that Amelia's marriage to his brother was a fraud, she will be entitled to a sizeable portion of his family's estate. He is determined to return this duplicitous “Lady” to London for an official hearing, and he carries with him a letter that will ensure her cooperation . . .Left with no choice, Amelia joins the captain on his return voyage to England, and the two quickly find that ship life does not allow for evasion. Amelia and William are ceaselessly thrown together, and amidst fierce storms and ocean battles, what began as antipathy seems to be evolving quite unexpectedly. But as they draw ever closer to their destination, will the impossibility of their circumstances shatter any hope of a future together?

Our customer reviews

This book is AMAZING! Surely the NEXT BEST SELLER in REGENCY ROMANCE! Take all of the fun bantering and serious propriety of the high society and place in on a ship... out on the open ocean... with an impending war... And you the the makings of a GREAT STORY! Amelia Beckett, (Lady Lockwood) is married...on paper at least. But now she is a widow without ever meeting Lord Lockwood. Her father has sent for her to come to England... And who should be the captain of the ship she will be traveling on? None other than Captain Sir William Drake, the brother of her deceased husband. Not only is he taking her to England, but once there, he will be taking her to court to contest the marriage and her inheritance of "a sizable portion of his family's estate." But Amelia is not the faint-of-heart kind of woman. She will win your heart just as she does the shipmates... But can she win the heart of the captain as well? YOU WILL LOVE THIS BOOK! SO. SO. SO. GOOD! Give in to love and romance and the open sea!show more
