More than 20 years ago, Philippa “Pippin” Knolles, now Lady Gossett, saved Captain Thomas Dashwell’s life. Now, Pippin finds herself unexpectedly reunited with her one true love when Dash’s son Nate asks Pippin to “save” his father again. Pippin fears that Dash is dying, but when she arrives at his ship, she discovers the dashing, roguish American privateer has become an alcoholic wreck. Even if Pippin wanted to help Dash (and after their disastrous reunion she has her doubts), Dash wants nothing to do with the woman he believes romantically betrayed him. With the help of a memorable red dress, though, Pippin and Dash just might get a second chance at a happily-ever-after ending. Boyle takes some creative risks in this installment in her superb Bachelor Chronicles series, and the result is worth it: an exquisitely written, richly emotional tale of love and redemption. --John Charles
