Historical Romance at its best.
Gabrielle Hampshire, a young woman abandoned to a convent after witnessing a brutal murder and suffering traumatic-shock amnesia, yearns to discover her identity. Upon notification of her father's death, she returns to his English country estate. Gabrielle crosses paths with the killers who, fearing she will identify them, try to kill her.
Jonathan Briercliff, sea captain and future Duke of Falkhurst, rescues her from the near fatal attempt on her life. After their personal lives merge in a love relationship, Jonathan guards a terrible secret which will drive Gabrielle away from him if revealed. Willing to do anything to keep her from learning the truth, he deceives her with a growing web of lies, not the least among them, his relationship with Trina Bascomb, who has a clandestine agenda meant to clear the way for Trina to marry Jonathan for his fortune.
When the truth surfaces, Gabrielle finds herself in an emotional battle with Trina’s vengeful nature, Jonathan’s guarded lies and the wanton storms that come crashing down around her.
