Content to live alone in the tiny house where she and her three brothers were born, Serena Fairbourne is a self-sufficient New England spinster. Quite by accident, she is lost in a sudden coastal fog where an English aristocrat saves her—and soon their salty flirtation shifts into tender desire. With his maddening, fascinating London manners, he woos her as no man ever has, and she discovers a new world in his bright blue eyes. Yet, Serena fears the heartbreak of loving him, for she knows he will not stay.
Fitzgerald Crosbie has come to the colonies to rescue his sister, Anabelle, from an entirely improper marriage to an American sea captain; he never imagined being swept away with joy in Serena’s arms, or that he would long for the simplicity and honesty of the life she shows him. But love and trust are emotions his world has robbed Gerald of, and even Serena’s gentle touch may not be enough to heal him. Now, they must weather the storms of a wind-tossed, unpredictable passion—or surrender to hazardous currents that threaten their deepening bond.
