Bookish Sophia Green's future is uncertain. Orphaned as a child and raised by the wealthy Cappleman family, she has become an unpaid companion to her attractive younger cousin, Laura Cappleman, while always hoping she would one day marry Laura's brother, the diffident Samuel.
Sea captain Kit Hardacre's past is a mystery - even to him. Kidnapped by Barbary coast pirates at the age of 10, he does not remember his parents or even his real name. All he remembers of his past are things he would rather forget.
When Laura must miss the London season to allow a scandalous affair to blow over, Sophia suggests she join her on an archaeological dig in Sicily with their elderly uncle.
Their passage to Palermo is aboard Hardacre's new ship, the Calliope, but the vessel, like its captain, is not all it seems. Both have only one real mission - to rid the world of the evil slaver Kaddouri or die in the attempt.
Though first repulsed by Kit's devil-may-care attitude, Sophia can't deny a growing attraction to him. And he begins to see in the dusky part-Spanish Sophia a woman who could help him forget the horrors of his past, or, perhaps, at least come to terms with them.
She allows herself to be drawn into the shallows of Kit's world, but when the naive misjudgement of her cousins sees Laura abducted, Sophia is dragged into dangerous depths that could cost her life or her sanity in a living hell.
