Lady Patience Kendall crossed the sea to marry, but her intended died before she arrived in America.
Penniless and stranded, she found a risky way to get home: Charge several rich Colonials to take their daughters to England and find them rich, titled husbands.
Only at ship's departure did she realize every motherwanted her daughter towed the same man, the Marquess of Andover. She’d surely be able to get an introduction.
On the journey, Captain Grant St. Benedict was anything but friendly. Just because her girls caused a few mishaps aboard ship?
Grant had never met a woman more irritating, or more desirable, than the Lady Patience Kendall. But however dangerous his interest, he couldn’t resist teaching the delicious distraction that independence was nothing to passion.
