The man who got away is back... Tessa Jardine lands her dream job as first mate on a passenger ship--a dream job until she meets her captain, Lucas Hall. Ten years ago, Lucas broke her heart when he walked away from her, and she can't forgive him for that--or for his part in a failed rescue attempt that cost her younger brother his life.
