Boyd Anderson - youngest of the Anderson men... owns a ship, but does not captain it... sails around with it, but unbeknownst to anyone except the captain, he gets seasick... at 35ish he decides perhaps it's time to settle down & marry, and stay on land...

Katey Taylor - raised in America, in a small town... her parents have died, and she finds herself an heiress to lots of money - her mother's family had disowned her, but she had inherited at her father's death and never touched the money... now Katey wants adventure, so she and a maid are traveling the world and spending her money... she hopes to get to know her extended English family.

Her trip across the ocean is on Boyd's ship, and he is immediately entranced with her... because she is starting out on her adventure, and Boyd's obvious regard scares her, she lies to him and tells her she's married and she's joining her husband.

Once back in England, they meet again... but ... Katey was at an inn, traveling back to London from Ireland... and in the room next door she hears and subsequently rescues 7-year old Judith (Anthony & Regan's daughter) who had been kidnapped for ransom... when Jeremy & Boyd are responding to the ransom, and discover that 2 women and the child are at the inn, they storm into the room, and Jeremy takes the child and Boyd is left to deal with Katey... he is overcome with desire, and cannot trust his own judgement, fearing that Katey was the one to kidnap the child, so he comandeers her to take her back to London to Anthony to sort out... she's very angry that he will not listen to her, but after a day, she escapes out the window & he lets her go...

They meet up again (and Boyd is very sorry, and Katey is very angry) at Judith's when she is over for thanks... Boyd confesses his feelings to Anthony & James, who advise him to seduce her, and let the chips fall...

To make up for his behavior, Katey requests rental of his ship for her travels (she keeps missing hers, and is getting tired of waiting)... he gladly agrees, but isn't able to spend much time with her due to his seasickness... he decides to transport her to an island for a day - she is sleeping off too much wine, and wakes up on the island without realizing how she got there, and Boyd lies ... they have wonderful sex...

Pirates show up, Boyd (with a little help from Katey) fight them off... then Anthony & James show up... Anthony has found out that Katey is his daughter, from a young love liason with his neighbor... \\

so Katey ends up with a very large family... and a loving husband...
