They say reformed rakes make the best husbands. They were wrong.
Ten years ago, Tabby Russell married the man of her dreams. Or so she thought. The reformed rake had seemed vastly appealing when she was younger, but as life marched on and his old habits returned, Tabby realized too late that she should have chosen wiser when facing the marriage alter. But there is no undoing the decisions of the past or avoiding the ensuing consequences. Even if Tabby wishes otherwise.
Overwhelmed by her husband’s irresponsible lifestyle and suffocating debt, Tabby’s life unravels around her until she is forced to relinquish her home and privileged life to become a lowly servant to a most irritating and demanding sailor.
Captain Graham Ashbrook loves the sea and the navy, but between one breath and the next, that life is ripped away from him when a French cannonball strikes his ship. Crippled and desperate, Graham finds himself trapped at his sister’s estate as he struggles to heal his broken body and reclaim what he lost—at any cost. But when his sister hires an intriguing and far too beguiling nurse to watch over him, Graham finds himself wondering if a life on land might not be such an awful thing.
Even if the lady in question is determined to keep him at arm’s length…
