Marisa Villeneuve is facing what is probably her greatest life challenge: an impending forced marriage orchestrated by her stepfather who wants to make money from the match. But Marisa is nothing if not determined, independent and feisty. Rather than giving in to her stepfather's demand, she runs away from home and boards a ship on route to the faraway colonies in the Americas – as a stowaway! But it is here, aboard the ship, that she finds that she must make the most important decision of her life – a decision that could affect her for the rest of her life.
Byron Treasure is captain of a merchant ship heading for a British colony in the west, a voyage which he has taken so many times he's stopped counting. This time, though, things are different. Halfway along the journey his world is tossed into a tornado when he finds a stowaway aboard his ship. But that's not the most shocking part. What the blue blazes do you do when the stowaway you find on your ship is not the lad you thought he was, but a girl? And, for her safety, a girl you must keep in your own cabin?
Seduced by the stowaway
An ok short story. Ends a little abruptly. Felt like a partial story but didn’t end on a cliffhanger or anything like that.
