Edward Steele is at last on his way home and determined to be in Collingbourne before Christmas-but that was before he met Denley and Osborne.
Sailing from Africa to England, Edward meets these two very different men aboard ship. Osborne chooses to ignore everyone while Denley and Edward find themselves much together. But as their journey continues, Denley begins to feel unwell. By the time the ship stops in Lisbon, Portugal, he is very sick indeed.
Not able to ignore his travelling companion's plight, Edward abandons his goal of going home and disembarks with Denley and Osborne. He never dreams that his association with them will lead to the mysterious Nicola Bettencourt, a woman who captivates and confounds him in equal measures.
Edward Steele has enjoyed a great adventure in Africa with his brother, Henry. But now Henry has returned to England, and Edward, hoping to be home for Christmas, is ready to follow. However, Edward has always been a man of his word. And when aboard ship he tells two strangers he will help them, he stands by that promise-never dreaming that meeting these two men will put a woman into his life who captivates and confounds him in equal measure. After rendering assistance to the gentlemen, which costs him valuable time, Edward continues on his way, believing he will never see his fellow travelers again. He cannot foresee that when spring comes to Collingbourne, his life will be changed forever.
