Christian Powell was thought to be lost at sea, but it turns out it was only his memory that was lost. Arriving in London as a sailor without a past, Christian learns he is the youngest brother of a duke and a man with a scandalous reputation. He wants to find out who he is, but the more he learns the less he wants to return to being that person.
Gertrude Martin thought she had moved on from the childhood crush who broke her heart, but when that man rises from the dead she struggles to keep her composure. Without his memory, Christian is like a new man. He is still as handsome and charming as ever, but there is something tender and vulnerable about him that weakens her resolve to hate him. He hurt her deeply once, but can she forgive a past that he can't even remember?
As the past and present collide, two people must decide if they are meant to be in each other's future.
