When Rachel Devon was left orphaned on a lonely Caribbean island, an inexperienced nineteen-year-old, she was rescued by Niall Herrick, captain of the yacht "Silver Dolphin." Niall thought he could solve her problems by taking her to Bermuda and marrying her, but his solution did not turn out to be a happy one. Stifled by the unexpected luxury of her new surroundings, her marriage still only one of convenience, Rachel was thankful to find a friend in Brandon Hart. But Niall forbade the friendship. Convinced that Niall had married her only out of pity and not for love, Rachel was furious. What right had he to dictate to her? And what about his own friendship with the beautiful and unscrupulous Nadine Oakhill?
