Would destiny answer her dreams of romance?
Henrietta had risked her life to meet the man she would marry, the charming and wealthy shipowner Rolf Cheval. From the first moment, she knew him to be the most handsome man she had ever seen. She had come prepared for a marriage of convenience. Instead, he offered a union of joy, sharing, and love.
Now she could abandon herself to his passion and in his arms find a new beginning. But her boudoir door was locked while she slept. And somewhere in her new life lurked a dangerous rebel who might betray her at any moment.
She longed to trust completely in Rolf's protection -- until she learned that the death of the first Mrs. Cheval had been no accident.
