From the rich salons of London to the great houses of the country, USA Today Bestseller Eva Devon’s brand new tale from the beloved Dukes' Club series will sweep you into a glittering world...

The winds of passion drive Calliope and Lock together... But the past is pursuing them, eager to tear them apart...

Calliope Duke has spent her whole life on the high seas, traveling the globe. Abandoned as a small girl, she knows she’s incapable of being loved. When a change in circumstances sees her named sole possessor of a ship, she lays claim to her fate in London... Her half brothers’ shipping company. But once there, she meets the enigmatic Captain Lockehart Eversleigh. The somber gentleman is hardly one to give in to carnal nature…or will he? The more she gets to know Lockehart, the more she realizes that he's everything she's ever wanted. When passion strikes and the flame between them ignites will she dare to risk her wounded heart?

Captain Lockehart Eversleigh loves order. He's clung to it since his father’s death. Rules are all that keep him from sliding from his path into disaster. When he meets the spirited Calliope Duke, he knows she’s to be avoided. She's beautiful, articulate, and full of passion. Drawn to her in a way he never imagined, Lock can’t deny the danger... Even as he knows giving in might turn him into his darkest self.


Captain Caliope Duke and her sister are partners in the ship their mother left them.  They know the best way to protect it and themselves is to sail under the same shipping banner as their half brothers.  That means Caliope must spend a little time in England a place she hates.  Her brothers work out of an office in London,  so there she must go.
Captain Lockhart Eversleigh joined the army because he needs to always stay in control.  Fighting helps with that.  
 He's the youngest of a big happy family but they have had a big tragedy in the past that he is struggling with.  
Family and relationship us a big factor in this story.  The characters are a lot of fun,  including the secondary ones that you know might have met in previous books.  The heroine is a strong, intelligent and adventurous young woman.  Our hero is set in his ways, but very loving to his family.  
Great fun.  


USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR, Eva Devon, was raised on literary fiction, but quite accidentally and thankfully, she was introduced to romance one Christmas by Johanna Lindsey's Mallory novella, The Present. A romance addict was born. She devoured every single Lindsey novel within a few months and moved on to contemporary and paranormal with gusto. Now, she loves to write her own roguish dukes, alpha males and the heroines who tame them. She loves to hear from her readers. So please pen her a note!
