But, her fathers only love was the Sons of Liberty - who were sworn to free his native country, Brazil, from a tyrannical dictator. Elvire realizes her father is willing to sacrifice anything - even her - to his cause, when she discovers he is planning to marry her to one of the highest bidders, a repugnant older man or a reckless American gunrunner. But, Elvires heart is already spoken for, she has fallen in love with the gunrunners best friend, Miles Spencer. To win him, she knows she will have to maroon the two of them at sea. But, her plan goes horribly wrong when the gunrunners find themselves double-crossed by the piratical Sons of Liberty, and she and Miles find themselves caught in the crossfire at sea - with a major hurricane blowing down upon them. Shipwreck, battle, life as castaways on what Miles will call the island or desire lie ahead of them. And when they are rescued, the pair still face misunderstandings that threaten to keep them apart - forever! The classic 1920s romance still has the power to make hearts throb today. A must-read.
