Kathryn is a modern New Yorker with a great job and a handsome fiancé. Lately, she’s had hot dreams of a stranger who makes passionate love to her. She tells herself that dreams are only dreams—until she visits the falling-down Caribbean mansion she inherited from her father and finds that she’s also inherited the ghost of Sea Captain Matthew McDowell. He’s gorgeous, sexy—and convinced Kathryn is the woman who betrayed him 240 years ago. Will Matthew kill Kathryn or will he give in to desire and claim her for his own? And if he does, what kind of future could they possibly have together? None—unless each decides to make the ultimate sacrifice. And Matthew will never stand by and let Kathryn give up her life for him.
