Falling in love surprised them, Neither anticipated what love would teach... What price freedom? Is it worth the cost of love, your life, your very soul? McKenzie Campbell has vowed never again to give her heart to another. Widowed from an abusive husband, she tries to forget what she once believed about love, the warmth of a man’s arms around her, the passion in his kiss.
Now a man who has been friend to her has asked for more, has asked for a love she cannot return. He is a powerful man, if she denies him, will his power turn against her? Warden John Monroe is a man accustomed to getting what he wants. He wants McKenzie Campbell. She has what Monroe lacks: a quick intelligence, the respect of his soldiers, and she is trusted by the townspeople.
With her as his wife, there would be no limit to where his career might go. And she owes him—she owes him a debt their marriage could repay. Garrick Stuart is known for his cunning and ruthless disregard for the law. Arriving on George Island as a shackled prisoner, Garrick believes all is lost. George Island has a reputation as well. No one has ever escaped. It is here he will live out the consequences of a reputation that far outweighs his crimes.
Unless? As their stories unwind and combine, as curiosity leads to a fragile bond of trust, McKenzie and Garrick dare to believe freedom is within reach, built on hope, nurtured by love. Their odyssey begins in the confines of an island prison and climaxes on the vast reaches of the open sea, a metaphor for the journey of their hearts.
