A Captain for Caroline Grayby: Julie Wright
Caroline Gray’s third season in London society ends as badly as her first two, without even a glimmer of an interested marriage prospect. She suspects it’s because she is far more daring than demure to suit the taste of her class.
Her family’s dwindling income leaves Caroline with only one choice to secure her future: a one-way ticket to sail with the Fishing Fleet to India, where the son of a family friend waits. If the match doesn’t work,however, Caroline will not be able to afford the expensive passage home.
Captain Thomas Scott is commander of one of the ships which ferries scores of young English girls to the shores of India to find husbands. The trips have always been routine until his encounter with Miss Caroline Gray. She engages in a lively political conversation with the gentlemen at her table, who are appalled by her forward behavior. Captain Scott is secretly amused and delighted at her boldness, not to mention quite drawn to her beauty.
The attraction they feel toward each other is undeniable, but they both know any relationship between them is futile. Caroline will have to decide if she will marry a man in India whom she has never met or be brave enough to throw convention to the wind and commit to love a sea captain.
