In the aftermath of the Civil War, a shattered America begins to heal. Three Union soldiers-once prisoners of war-head home aboard the steamboat Sultana. For these brothers-in-arms, the war may be over…but the fight for the women they cherish has just begun. Returning to his Ohio home, Gabe Davis is haunted by the guilt of a shattering secret. Though he feels unworthy of love, he cannot deny his attraction to Yvette Augeron, the New Orleans beauty who has blustered her way onto the Sultana. But just as passion draws the unlikely pair together, the fateful explosion of the Sultana tears Yvette from his arms. Gabe doesn’t know if she’s dead or alive, until she risks her own safety to find him. Yet this brave act of sacrifice will plunge her into mortal danger, for Yvette has a murderous enemy. Now Gabe will battle against the odds to save the woman destined to be his wife.
