Zephyr Ponsley has never had a need to learn the
niceties of being a lady, that is until now. As a world
traveler with her scientist father, all she has ever had an
interest in were the bugs and plants they discovered. Now
being on a ship with a very handsome captain, one she cannot
stand (or at least that is what she keeps telling herself),
she wishes she was more like the ladies who know their way
around men and ballrooms.
Captain Bradshaw Carroway cannot believe that his new
assignment is to play nursemaid to a bunch of aristocrats, a
woman who manages to rub him the wrong way, and her
father. His ship is a battle ship not a cruise ship but he
has his orders and he must follow them. In its own way

Enoch gave Bradshaw his own story and that she gave him
such a strong and bullheaded woman to give him a run for
For proper young ladies, good behavior has always been the ruleâ€¦
Captain Bradshaw Carroway loves the seafaring lifeâ€”though
heâ€™d rather be battling brigands than his current assignment of
ferrying a boatload of spoiled aristocrats. One passenger,
however, has caught his eye: a bewitching young minx who
definitely distracts him from the rules of
shipboard decorum . . .
Some rules, of course, are meant to be broken.
Miss Zephyr Ponsley has traveled the world, but sheâ€™s
completely innocent in the ways of love. Sheâ€™s never learned
to dance or flirt. But scientific observation has taught her
that the laws of attraction have no rules, and that no
adventure, on land or sea, is more dangerousâ€”or
