Cara Ross, what year did you read this book?

What's the approximate time period of the story? Which war did the hero fight in?

Has the hero become a privateer or pirate?

Cara Ross (carasbookboudoir) | 18 comments It was after the American Revolution. The hero stayed in the American Navy and was searching for the couple that defrauded not only his father, but the American Navy.

I seem to remember that he was imprisoned in Dartmoor, after being captured by the British navy.

Never Seduce a Scoundrel by Sabrina Jeffries?

One Amazon reviewer says, "Major [Lucas] Winter is on a mission to find the woman who has embezzelled funds from the fledgling American government, and as bad luck turns out, the woman may be none other than Amelia's beloved stepmother, Lady Tovey." There also references to "War of 1812 and about Dartmoor Prison".
