Passions blaze on the high seas as Krista Janssen's highly acclaimed series unfolds from the antebellum South to exotic Morocco, then a return to the windswept Isle of Skye. Laurel Caldwell, drawn to her ancestral home in Scotland, sails from the security of her sheltered upbringing in Louisiana, only to encounter for the second time the devilishly attractive former pirate with whom she had danced at a ball in her youth. Opposed to slavery, wanting to manager her father's shipping business, Laurel rebels against the suffocating rules of Southern society. A mature and jaded former privateer, Cheyne Sinclair lives a lavish lifestyle in Morroco, but he is a lonely man and has never forgotten the lovely Southern belle who once scorned him in Louisiana. Then fate brings them together to face adventure, danger, and a love worth fighting for, a destiny they must claim despite all odds.
