As a grieving young widow, Morwenna only wants a quiet life for herself and her son. Until a man washes ashore, entangling her in a web of mystery that could threaten all she holds dear.
Lady Morwenna Trelawny Penvenan indulged in her fair share of dalliances in her youth, but now that shes the widowed mother to the heir of the Penvenan title, shes desperate to polish her reputation. When shes accused of deliberately luring ships to crash on the rocks to steal the cargo, Morwenna begins an investigation to uncover the real culprits and stumbles across an unconscious man lying in the sea-foama man wearing a medallion with the Trelawny crest around his neck.
The medallion is a mystery to David Chastain, a boat builder from Somerset. All David knows is that his father, after lying and stealing his familys money, was found dead in Cornwall with the medallion in his possession. And he knows the widow who rescued him from the water is impossibly beautifuland likely the siren who caused the shipwreck in the first placeas well as the hand behind whoever is trying to murder David.
As Morwenna nurses David back to health and tries to learn how he landed on her beach, suspicion and pride keep their growing attraction at bay. But can they join together to save Morwennas name and estate, as well as Davids life? Can they acknowledge the love they are both trying to deny?
