Publisher Description

From USA Today bestselling author Glynnis Campbell... A notorious Scottish rake becomes an unwitting stowaway on a ship bound for America, until a spirited young botanist restores his reputation, and he becomes the only one who can save her from a twisted fate.


Amateur botanist Charlotte de Ware couldn't be more excited about sailing with her orchid collection from Scotland to New York to visit kin for Christmas. When she stumbles upon a dashing stowaway on the ship, she refuses to let the captain throw him overboard. But she soon questions her charity when she learns that the stowaway surgeon is a notorious rake. Travis Jameson never meant to go to America. But his controversial medical studies have made him a dangerous target, and his friends spirit him aboard a packet ship for his own safety. He finds adventure on the ship and love in the charming yet unattainable lass who comes to his aid. But when they reach their destination and must part ways, a terrible secret and a twist of fate reverses their fortunes, and it's up to the tarnished scoundrel to save the desperate young miss.

I definitely recommend!

This prequel novella to the California Legends tells the story of Charlotte de Ware, who is led to believe that she is traveling to the Americas in the company of her brother, George. The truth, which Charlotte doesn’t find out until much later, comes as a shock to this gently bred young daughter of nobility. Making the best of the situation, she accidentally encounters a stowaway and his faithful terrier, whom she takes pity on, when the captain threatens to throw them both overboard. The stowaway, surgeon Travis Jameson, is also aboard under false pretenses, though through no fault of his own. An unlikely friendship and more slowly develops between these two as they face the difficulties of an ocean passage and what awaits them in the New World. As always, Ms. Campbell writes lovely, descriptive prose which moves the plot along and keeps me reading long after I should have gone to sleep! I definitely recommend this glimpse at the origin story of the characters in the later California Legends series.

Sweet Read

The Stowaway by Glynnis Campbell

Sweet story about Travis and Charlotte and of course Campbell. They all meet on a ship bound for New York. Charlotte rescued both Campbell (dog) and Travis by following Campbell to ensure he was safe in the hold and discovered he was laying by a large chest and he refused to leave. She at first believed it was a casket but it moved and she realized it held someone or something inside. Travis broke free startling her and drawing the attention of the first mate. He was very mad and wanted the Stowaway dealt with and then Charlotte stepped up and vouched for the stowaway. The first mate told her, “not the dog but the man”. lol She still vouched for him but he chose to work for his passage. They meet up a few times innocently until the ship is in a terrible storm. Then their relationship..... read to find out what happens next! It was so good I could barely put it down for the short time I did today while binge reading this book. Sweet love story!
