AT SEA WITH A BEAUTIFUL STOWAWAY ... Naval officer Perry Wentworth was stunned to discover the lovely Elizabeth Grantham in his cabin after his ship had set sail, for he had refused her father's request that she be taken to England.

Keeping her presence a secret from the captain was a nightmare, for Elizabeth was no docile little maid. This ruth imp of a woman kept Perry running for cover, until her welfare became his top priority. Yet, as scandal threatened Elizabeth's reputation, Perry could no longer allow her out of his sight --- or out of his heart!
