After losing his leg fighting Natives in the Northwest Territories, Captain Dayne Neverwood returns an empty shell. Useless and alone, he prays for death—sooner rather than later. His former commander has the answer: One last mission and an honorable demise. His orders? Hijack the Enchanted Lady and give the Brits a taste of their own medicine. He wasn't prepared for their obstinate prisoners—including a lad barely able to climb the rat lines. "Lane" arouses his body and soul, and soon, Dayne finds himself questioning his existence.
Delainey Walsh has fought men her entire life. Forced to leave Ireland in shame, she joins a noble family in London. When his obsessed son rapes her, scandal erupts, and Lord Darnley forces Lainey on a ship bound for Canada. Disguised as a boy, she keeps the sailors at bay—until the handsome American captain saves their sinking vessel. His brooding presence ignites her body, challenging her Irish spirit. Battling her fear of the stronger sex, she avoids him. The man won't let her be. Compassion conquers fear as Dayne mentors her. And when he discovers her secret, sparks ignite. Can a man truly give her pleasure and not pain?
Upon revealing Lainey's true sex, Dayne finds his true reason for living. Tired of fighting, he wants nothing more than to spend his life by her side. But with war at their heels, his mission isn't complete. His memorial is already planned. Will he sacrifice his country for a lifetime of happiness?
