Bagamoyo, East African Coast, Late 1866
RyAnne can hardly believe she's been rescued. And yet there is the Captain, kneeling before her and asking her to be his wife. But before returning to Zanzibar, they hope to find Khalifa's partners in illegal slave trading and bring them to justice.
Upon reaching Bagamoyo, Trent makes sure RyAnne is tucked away safely in an inn as he pursues the criminals. Before long, he's trailing an unexpected suspect in the thriving slave entrepôt that holds perils he couldn't have foreseen.
When RyAnne stumbles across a vital piece of evidence in Khalifa's missives from his wife, she breaks her promise - well, she didn't really promise - to stay in her room and rushes headlong into danger. Danger that this time might be too much to overcome.
A thrilling historical romance from the time of missionary explorer David Livingstone.
