This is the third book in the Gulf Coast Chronicles. This book stands alone but you should read the other 2 books to really enjoy the story. Fiona saves Charlie after he falls from his ship and washes ashore. They knew each other in England when they were younger. Charlie has amnesia at first so they do not turn him in as a spy. This story takes place during the War of 1812. Can Fiona’s and Charlie’s love survive. I received this book from Revell for a fair and honest opinion.Fiona Lanier is the only woman in the tiny Gulf Coast settlement of Navy Cove. While her shipbuilding family races to fill the demand for American ships brought by the War of 1812, Fiona tries to rescue her brother who was forced into service by the British Navy. Lieutenant Charlie Kincaid has been undercover for six months, obtaining information vital to the planned British invasion of New Orleans. When a summer storm south of Mobile Bay wrecks his ship and scatters the crew, Charlie suffers a head injury, ultimately collapsing in the arms of a beautiful mermaid who seems eerily familiar. As Charlie’s memory returns in agonizing jags and crashes, he and Fiona discover that falling in love may be as inevitable as the tide. But when political loyalties begin to collide, they’ll each have to decide where their true heart lies.Beth White’s day job is teaching music at an inner-city high school in historic Mobile, Alabama.
