Chapter One

The first time that she saw Vanessa Kavik, Sara Tamirova was on the foredeck of the King's Ransom, crouched down to polish the brass rail. She happened to glance toward the harbor and saw the woman walking down the dock, her stride long and confident. Her hips and shoulders swayed as she walked, turning a simple walk into a strut that Sara had no hope of ignoring. The stranger's features were mostly hidden under sunglasses and the brim of a baseball cap, but she had her chin lifted so she could scan the names of the boats she passed. She wore a light sundress that brushed against her tanned thighs like a caress with each step.

Keeping one eye on the woman's approach, Sara continued her work. At the back of her mind, she started running through pick-up lines. Ahoy, there. Care for a tour of the ship? The woman obviously had an interest in boats. Maybe she would like to see a real, working salmon seiner. Maybe if she played her cards right, the tour could end at Sara's cot. Stranger things had happened, after all.
