Caroline is a rebel but pretends to be a loyalist with the British soldiers camping at the planation. She believes Garrett is a loyalist. Little does she know he is the rebel privateer captain called Osprey, the one she blames for her first husband’s death and her brother’s capture by the British.
Once wed, Caroline persuades Garrett to accompany her to the Caribbean to search for missing treasure, part of the Incan gold her great grandmother buried. He agrees because she promises him money, which he needs for a new ship. But Caroline's bargain with her husband will prove problematic. What she thought would be a marriage of convenience turns into one of love.
There’s lots of adventure here, as there were in the first two books, as ghosts from the past contribute to both good and bad in Caroline’s life. French portrays the Caribbean in vivid detail and has done her research to present an accurate historical setting. I recommend the trilogy.
