Amber, a strong-willed girl, is struck by tragedy when she loses her mother, the person shielding her from the world's cruelty. It’s 1714 in Boston, Mass., and the death of Amber's mom is not the only factor that threatens her stable life; her father's secretive will puts her inheritance in jeopardy. Afraid that her money will go to her envious and greedy uncle, she sails to England to find the thing that will save her future: an honorable husband with a suitable title. Amber's luck takes an even a worse turn when her ship is attacked by Imperial Shadow, the infamous pirate ship. She finds herself at the mercy of the devilishly handsome captain, Logan. The refreshing character of Amber entices Logan, and he finds himself challenged by a girl who doesn’t seem to appreciate his charms. The chemistry between the two is palpable. Gradually, their relationship takes interesting turns, and with every event both Amber and Logan, against their better judgment, discover that they are falling for each other. Unanticipated revelations about the characters’ pasts, especially Logan's, are surprising, but the fast turn of events impedes experiencing the emotional depth of the novel. Still, the author takes the reader with Amber on a sea adventure where her captor becomes her savior.
