The Wellingford family saga continues with this sixth entry. Justiss skillfully blends her knowledge of Regency England with her love of the sea, creating a story that moves between an English seaside town to the glittery ballrooms of London. The romance is fiery but sweet and both hero and heroine learn that finding your lifelong dream doesn’t always lead to happiness.

Wounded seaman Greville Anders recuperates at the country home of Lord Bronning. A gentleman with no property or money, he was illegally pressed into service with the Royal Navy and now seeks to recover his status as a landsman. Amanda Neville, Lord Bronning’s daughter, is initially reluctant to meet the household’s newest addition, but she finds Greville to be intelligent and entertaining, not to mention very handsome! She is looking forward to her first season in London, far away from the small seaside town where she has lived her whole life. Greville and Amanda develop a strong attraction, but they can’t act on it, because their dreams will take them far away from each other. (HARLEQUIN, Feb., 336 pp., $5.99)
