Romance | Historical
Isadora Peabody is the brilliant but socially inept
sibling in an otherwise perfect family. And although she
struggles to fit into Boston society, her awkwardness
dooms her to repeated failure. Fate intervenes when she
learns that a sea captain, Ryan Calhoun, is in need of an
interpreter for his next voyage to Rio. And despite Ryan's
adamant opposition to hiring a female interpreter, Isadora
gains a berth on his ship, thanks to a little blackmail.
Life aboard ship and away from the strict confines of
Boston society finds Isadora losing weight, gaining
confidence, and blooming like a rose. She befriends the
motley crew of rough sailors, and in turn, they become a
charm school of sorts, tutoring her in gracefulness--which
comes in handy when climbing the rope rigging--dancing,
and friendship. Isadora's transformation fascinates Ryan,
but he is determined to stay away from her for he has
secretive, dangerous plans. Unaware of Ryan's interest,
Isadora struggles with her growing attraction to the
reckless sea captain. But before they can resolve their
feelings, prior commitments surface and endanger their
chance of finding a happy future together.
