1803. Tensions are escalating again between England and France. Smugglers, perilous storms and a treacherous coastline all threaten to overcome HMS Teazer as her men fight to gain control of the seas. Meanwhile an unlikely rival is seeking her captain's heart. The beautiful admiral's daughter could be the key to realising all Kydd's career ambitions. But high society, he finds, can be as treacherous as his first mistress - the sea.
