Rebekah Cummings thinks she is a burden on her family. She is the only girl among three brothers and does the work of a man, wearing pants instead of a skirt. The family is in financial straits and won’t let her get a job so she can help out. She wants to find a way to pay her family’s debts, even if doing so requires her leaving Eagle Harbor. She hires on as a cook on a ship owned by Gilbert Sinclair, who she has secretly harbored a crush since childhood. Gilbert is on his way to Chicago having recently lost his newly developed crane, when the ship it was on sank. He needs thousands of dollars to rebuild and the only solution is to marry a wealthy woman. So he heads to Chicago where his father’s business connections should land him a suitable wife. The only thing, he cannot deny his attraction for Rebekah. He had no idea she was hired to be the cook on his boat. She has no place being around a bunch of men in her pants and flowing auburn locks. He feels responsible for her and is determined to send her back home as soon as they dock. But of course Rebekah other ideas. Sparks fly, hurtful words are flung toward each other and the attraction grows into love. Should Rebekah let Gilbert go his headstrong way and marry for money instead of love? Can Gilbert abandon his plans and his family for a poor, working class woman? Lots of fast paced action in this book makes for a delightful read.
