Book Four: The Defiant Hearts Series
by Sydney Jane Baily
High-spirited Boston society girl Rose Malloy has given her heart to no one. One day, one glance, one man changes all that. Climbing the rigging of the ship he’s building, and looking like a modern-day pirate, Finn Bennet spies the dark-haired beauty and pursues her.
Secretly wed yet abruptly losing the man of her dreams, Rose slips into private sorrow. That is, until British-born William Woodsom coaxes the light back into the sapphire blue eyes of the young woman who dazzled Boston’s elite before her inexplicable withdrawal three years earlier. He successfully captures her fragile heart.
When the past resurfaces, bringing intrigue and danger, Rose finds her world falling apart for the second time in her young life. Keeping secrets is no longer an amusing adventure. Can Rose prevent further heartache not only for herself but for the man she loves – or will her future be destroyed by an Inconceivable Deception?
