He has something to prove
Captain Caleb Frobisher, hedonistic youngest son of a seafaring dynasty, wants to be taken seriously. Seizing the next leg of the covert mission his brothers are pursuing, he acts decisively and effectively in securing the mission's objectives. But responsibility has taken root, and he remains in the jungle to ensure the mission's ultimate goal.

She will risk everything
Katherine Fortescue fled a life of poverty and came to Freetown as a governess, only to be kidnapped and forced to oversee the child workforce at a mine. Guarded by well-armed, well-trained mercenaries, the captives have lost all hope of escape. Then Katherine meets a handsome man—a captain—and he brings the sweet promise of rescue.

Together they will face the future

The sadistic mercenary who runs the mine has other plans, but Caleb's true strength lies in extracting advantage from adversity, and through the clashes that follow, he becomes the leader he was always destined to be. The sort of man Katherine can trust—with her body, with her life. With her love.

What did I think of this book:
This was a good addition to an enjoyable series. I like how each book centers around one of the Frobisher brother. The time period in which this book and the entire series takes place is one of my favorite time periods. I thought the author did a good job of describing the settings and each of the characters. You really get to know these people and by the end you feel as if they are friends. Her writing style is also good and helps the story to move right along. There is plenty of adventure mixed in with the romance to keep you interested in what is going on. This is a part of a series and I do suggest that you read them in order. With that being said I am looking forward to the last book to see how things tie up in the end.
