Isabel Ashton has endured much pain, including being ravaged by the pirate Kent Carlton. That union resulted in a son, Frederick, and caused Isabel's genteel parents to all but disown her. Now Frederick has been kidnapped, and Isabel must join forces with Kent, the man she fears and despises the most, to find their son. Isabel is relying on God to get her through this nightmare and bring her son back to her. But is it possible that she harbors a soft spot for Kent? (BARBOUR, Aug., 288 pp., $9.97)
