Publisher's Summary

The deck bucked under her feet, and she was hurtled backwards on to the bunk again, and the blast of a massive explosion ripped through the ship. 'What is happening?' she screamed.  

Love in a time of war. Hope in a time of danger.  

One of the greatest fighter pilots of the Great War, Michael Courtney is saved by the French noblewoman Centaine de Thiry when he crashes near her home. Soon after, Centaine finds herself alone and carrying Michael's child and must travel across the ocean to join his family in South Africa.  

But no journey is ever simple, and a pregnant Centaine finds herself shipwrecked in shark-infested waters off Africa's notorious Skeleton Coast, a deadly swim away from the sun-bleached desert that will see her defenceless and alone. When hope arrives, she has no way of knowing if she will be saved - or left in greater danger than ever before....

Good

For me parts of this book were slow. However, being a Courtney fan this is a must read. it still deserves a 5 rating!

Excellent story in a great series.

Although lacking the personal connection I especially felt in the preceding books, this was a great story, that left me hanging a bit. Won't divulge why....
