When a beautiful runaway wearing a memento mori rosary stumbles into Daniel’s shipbuilding workshop and hears him singing, her improvised verse and quick wit awaken a passion he thought long-dead.

But their flirtatious game sparks a flame that neither can control.

Though he is far below her station, she can’t deny the new and unexpected feelings he inspires. When she learns his true identity, it seems their love was meant to be—but Earl de Broase will stop at nothing to end the threat they represent to the legitimacy of his rule.
