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 she's the widowed mother to the heir of the Penvenan title, she's desperate to polish her reputation. When she's 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's foam—a 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 was found dead in Cornwall with the medallion in his possession after lying and stealing his family's money. And he knows the widow who rescued him is impossibly beautiful—and likely the siren who caused the shipwreck in the first place—as 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 Morwenna's name and estate and David’s life? Can they acknowledge the love they are both trying to deny?

Review by Kallee
Overall Rating
Morwenna has been widowed for 2 years and her one desire is to make a life for herself and her young son at her murdered husband’s estate. When an unconscious man washes up on her shore, she is entangled in a web of mysteries that threatens everything she holds dear.

David is the unknown man who washes up on shore and was on a voyage to look for answers to his father's death. Somehow Morwenna's family hold clues and answers that David needs.

Laurie Alice Eakes has crafted a wonderful story full of intrigue, emotion and mystery. I loved getting to know the characters and to try and find out their motivation. It was a wonderful story that twisted and turned every which way. It is a wonderful reminder of how powerful family is and how important it is for us to stand on our own also. I throughly enjoyed this book and could not put it down.

I received this book in exchange for a review. However, all opinions are my own. (Posted on 4/9/2015)
