Honor Donovan has been shut out of Donovan International by her father and four brothers. When her brother Kyle vanishes, along with a fortune in stolen amber, Honor's questions are ignored by the Donovan males. Defying them, she heads to the San Juan Islands of the Pacific Northwest in search of answers.
Until Kyle disappeared, Jake Mallory was brokering amber deals for Donovan International, and he now suspects that he's being set up to take the fall for Kyle.
Jake and Honor cast off on a journey smoldering with distrust, betrayal, vengeance, and temptation. Alone at sea, they flee from ruthless enemies and fight against trusting each other. If the penalty for berayal is death, the reward may be a lifetime together.
