What if the man who made love to you last night does not recognize you this morning? What if this happened when you were fleeing for your life?

Marilee Booth masquerades as an old woman and hires on as a cook aboard a ship headed to the colonies. She is smitten by the handsome Captain, who merely sees her as a part of the crew. On the last night at sea, when she doffs her disguise to say goodbye while he sleeps, her life is forever altered.

“Captain’s Captive” is an historical romance set in 1723.  It tells the tale of a woman who is forced to make choices under duress.  She and Captain Robert Stuart fall in love.  When her childhood friend arrives and joins forces with her jealous rival, a plot ensues that threatens them all.
