As the War of 1812 rages across the newly formed United States, another war rages in Fiona Lanier's heart--one that threatens to tear her family apart.
Fiona can scarcely take in the news of her brother's capture and imprisonment by the British Navy. It is almost as unbelievable as the half-drowned British sailor who is washed ashore on the beach of Navy Cove.
Charlie Kincaid claims to have no memory of his life before being discovered by Fiona, but in a world that seems saturated with treachery, she cannot be sure he is telling the truth.
As Charlie's memory returns in agonizing jags and crashes, he and Fiona discover that falling in love may be as inevitable as the tide. But when political allegiances collide, they'll each have to decide where their true loyalty lies.

What is Fiona going to do. First she is told that her brother has been taken prisoner by the British Navy. Then a strange British sailor named Charles Kincaid shows up on the beach after he almost drowns. He has lost his memory and has no idea about himself at all. While she tries to help him she is still thinking about her brother. Charles Kincaid is beginning to like Fiona a lot. Fiona is afraid to feel anything. What should she do, what about her brother? Now as time goes on things start to look different. Who is able to be trusted? What can she do? I give this book a 4/5. I was provided a copy of this book by Revell publishing Company and these are my opinions.
