Summary
Dr Robyn Ballantyne has always worked hard for what she wants. Coming home to Africa after twenty years, she fears there are only three men who may still stand in her way. Zouga her brother is the only family she's known for much of her life. Yet she and the celebrated soldier will never quite see eye to eye. Codrington, an ambitious British naval officer, dreams of giving Robyn the perfect life. But does she want to be tamed enough to fit his idea of perfection? And Mungo St John, the notorious American merchant, repels her with his slave trading. But Robyn cannot forget what once passed between them. As her adventures begin, Robyn must make decisions that will shape the future for all of them ..

Summary
In search of the father they barely remember, Zouga and Dr. Robyn Ballentine board Mungo St. John's magnificent clipper bound for Africa, but if Robyn can bring hope and healing to Africa's fever-riddern shores, Mungo, a lawless trader in human cargo, will possess any man--or woman--he chooses.
