When a night of passion leads to scandal, Rebecca Alexander has but one option; marry the man responsible for her downfall, or be cast from her prominent family. Unfortunately, all she can recall from that fateful night is the man’s name, and the memory of remarkable seductive skill.
American sea captain James McKenzie is no stranger to scandal, but this one comes with an angry father. One with the means to make James right his wrong. Faced with the choice between marrying Rebecca or being pressed into the Navy, James reluctantly takes a wife he neither wants nor needs.
As they journey from the West Indies to America, Rebecca and James realize there is something between them, something even stronger than their desire for one another. And if James’s past doesn’t come back to haunt him, he might even discover that his wife is indeed, a perfect lady for him.
