Sammie | 5 comments Hi, I read this book not long ago but for the life of me I can't remember. It's about an impoverished genteel lady (not noble, I think she trains debutantes or something) who answers to an ad to work as a cook aboard a ship, but actually she can't cook at all. There she meets the captain, who's plotting a revenge against his former school classmates who look down on him when he was young because he's poor. He's planning to masquerade as someone else because these two classmates are getting married and he wants to seduce the future bride to embarrass the future groom. During the climax he could not go through with it and decides to let go of his vengeance and go after the heroine who has left because she is very hurt by his actions. He chases after her on a boat. The heroine is angry to the extent she puts out signal to coast guards. In the end, they reconcile.

Does "not long ago" mean 6 months? 3 years? 8 years?
Are you sure this is contemporary and not historical?
Remember the cover?

I can't remember the cover. But I am very sure it's contemporary, even though my description sounds like historical
