Anne Galway and Dmitri Romanov started their romance with a betrayal. Caught up in a fast affair, Dmitri is devoted to his new love. Until he sees his first mate sail off with his ship and runs across the gangplank to recapture the outbound vessel. Angered at being abandoned, Anne follows him onboard.
As they leave Portland and everything else behind, neither Anne nor Dmitri are sure whom to trust on Igor’s Folly. Everyone with them is suspect and alliances soon form. While the ship sails west to Dmitri’s Russian home, Anne can’t help but wonder if his love for her is stronger than the lure of the open seas.
