Daniel McCreigh and Rayne Youngblood, old friends, loving fathers and matchmakers extraordinaire, believe they have hatched the perfect plan to unite their children in holy matrimony, but not without a bit of deceit.
When Daniel informs his daughter, Caralyn, she is to be married to a man she doesn't know, she does exactly as he hopes she will do—she embarks on a quest to find "Izzy's Fortune," believing Queen Isabela's legendary lost treasure will buy her out of a marriage she doesn't want. And who better to help her than Captain Trey?
Tristan Youngblood, aka Captain Trey, would much rather spend his time searching for lost treasure than become the next Earl of Winterbourne. Having seen the misery of his parents union, he is unhappy to learn that a marriage has been arranged for him, but he has no choice. His duty as the first-born son is to do as his father wishes—take over the reins of the vast Winterbourne estates and give up the seafaring life that soothes his soul. Yet, he can't resist Caralyn's proposition—one last grand adventure to search for Izzy's Fortune.
