New Release Spotlight! A Captain’s Bride, Historical Women’s Fiction

New Release Spotlight A Captains Bride

Grumpy Miss Applewaite looks like a fun challenge.
Silly Mr. Hathaway is nothing but a flirt.

Phoebe Applewaite refuses to ransom herself to escape spinsterhood or to fund the millinery shop of her dreams. When foppish Mr. Hathaway tries to cajole her into a dance on Twelfth Night, she’s determined to ignore the ridiculous man even if he is one of Charleston’s most eligible bachelors.

James Hathaway would rather be a sea captain than an heir. His parents don’t approve, so he spends most days at the card tables. When his father threatens to cut him off, James agrees to pursue someone “suitable” in exchange for a position aboard a company ship. The single and ever-serious Miss Applewaite seems harmless enough.

Phoebe and James concede to a polite friendship but soon discover they can work together exporting Phoebe’s goods with the Hathaway shipping company. It will take a house party on an island plantation before either is certain if their hearts hunger for more than success and adventure.

Can a wealthy heir find love with a woman of ambition, or will old habits ruin a rake’s chances and send Phoebe Applewaite running for the Carolina low country instead of becoming a captain’s bride?
