Widely known as the lord of the privateers, Royd Frobisher expects to execute the final stage of the rescue mission his brothers have begun. What he does not expect is to be pressured into taking Isobel Carmichael-- his childhood sweetheart, former handfasted bride and current business partner-- with him. Can true love die? Or, neglected, does it lie dormant until the object of true desire is again within reach? Denied, does passion smolder? Learn the answer and revel in the action, drama, intrigue, and passion as the Frobishers -- with help from Wolverstone, the Cynsters, and many familiar others -- steer the Adventurers Quartet to a glorious end.
