He never imagined his heart would be clawed in two. But after his life-threatening accident, what Martim once considered important, drastically changed.
Constance was a lonely lighthouse keeper ridiculed by the town’s debutant. Martim was a wealthy inheritor destined to marry the debutant. But after his ship tossed him into frigid waters, a twist of fate brought them together and tangled them into the depths of an enraptured romance.
Suffering a head injury, Marim hadn’t any recollection of where he had been headed, or why he had been traveling in the first place. He knew he didn’t want to go to the nearest port town of Alpena – the very place he’d likely been bound for. He preferred to heal and collect himself at the mercy of his willing savior, Constance.
As his physical health improved, a root of growing knowledge ripened. Regaining his memory, he knew he would have to make the inevitable trip to the town he had purposely avoided. People there had been expecting him. Important decisions needed to be made.
The responsibility of returning tore at his spirit. During his respite at the lighthouse, a romance had bloomed into something more than either he or Constance had expected. Swept in a complex whirlwind of companionship, healing, and passion he grapples with their inevitable parting.
With memory returned, Martim understands his deep-rooted hesitance in going to the port town of Alpena – his betrothment to the wickedly perfect, Victoria for a business partnership. Now, having fallen desperately in love with Constance, Martim cannot fathom going through with the betrothal. He runs the risk of being cut from his family’s substantial wealth and inherited business.
It comes to a choice between wealth, or the perfect love.
