The Calhoun Chronicles
As the ballrooms of 1800s America glitter, romance is afoot…
Boston and Rio de Janeiro, 1851
An awkward misfit in an accomplished family, Isadora Peabody yearns to escape her life as a wallflower in Boston society. Fate intervenes when she learns that a ship bound for Rio de Janeiro is in need of an interpreter — a pursuit she very much enjoys. The only problem? The surly and handsome captain is adamantly opposed to a woman taking the role.
Sea captain Ryan Calhoun used to have a good family name. But he’d purposely walked away from everything it afforded him, driven by his quest to right an old wrong. When he finds himself falling for the meek young woman who comes aboard his ship, he’s determined to stay away from her — if only to keep her out of his secretive, dangerous plans.
As the tides of attraction flow between them, Ryan and Isadora must risk it all for love. For a true lady must learn to speak her mind, and Isadora is ready to put her newfound charms to the test.
Includes the story The Captain’s Courtesan by Lucy Ashford.
