A Romance with an HNF Background:
In 1802, a love worth dying for is more than just a romantic notion. Lieutenants William Marshall and David Archer, of His Majesty's frigate Calypso, have been lovers for more than a year. Courage, devotion, and extreme discretion have kept them from the hangman's noose-the price they must pay if their relationship is discovered. The occasional night of passion ashore is all the more precious to them for its rarity.
But in the Royal Navy, nothing lasts forever. A transfer to a new ship brings with it a bizarre turn of events: their Captain orders them to behave as though they are involved in an illicit relationship in order to smoke out a suspected traitor, blackmailer, and saboteur. Their masquerade proves dangerously effective. In the midst of a battle with the French, the traitor strikes, leaving Davy seriously - perhaps fatally - wounded, while Will must return to duty, guilt-ridden and fearful that their luck has finally run out.
Winds of Change, the second in the Royal Navy Series by Lee Rowan, travels from England to Jamaica and points beyond. Join Will and Davy on the journey as they confront their deepest fears and find out if their shared love is able to transcend all that separates them.
