Summary

When I found out I'd have a kid with Emma, the girl of my dreams and my best friend, the world turned around. I knew becoming a father at seventeen wouldn't be easy. But I couldn't imagine that watching Emma get on with her life with the boy she loves would be the hardest part. A boy who is not me, of course.
I thought I'd never fall in love again. But then she came along. With her books, her laughter, her clumsiness, her endless spontaneity, her light. She, Loralai. The most amazing girl in all of London.
But is there any place for love in my life, between nappies, bottles, tests, and work? Justin, my son, is my priority.
And falling in love is just a luxury I can't afford.
I'm not sure how could I avoid it, though.
I'm Nate, by the way. And I'm in serious trouble.

Can a new love survive in the shadow of an old one?
Chiara F. Citterio's new novel continues the story of Emma, Nate, and Bella, the protagonists of Almost Love.

    INTRIGUE. TENSION. LOVE AFFAIRS:
    In The Historical Romance series, a set of stand-alone novels, Vivian Stuart builds her compelling narratives around the dramatic lives of sea captains, nurses, surgeons, and members of the aristocracy.
    Stuart takes us back to the societies of the 20th century, drawing on her own experience of places across Australia, India, East Asia, and the Middle East. 
    
    To sit at the Captain's Table on a big liner is an honour eagerly sought after, and often especially so, when the Captain is handsome, distinguished, and young for so important a command.
    But for Catherine Duncan the privilege was a source of alarm, for Robert Blair was the brother of her dead fiancé, and he believed her to be morally responsible for Hugh's death.
    How could she endure his thundercloud presence, day after day, on the long voyage to China?
