Summary

When asked what he does for a living . . .Commander Mark Bishop is deliberately low-key: "I'm in the Navy." But commanding the ballistic missile submarine USS Nevada, keeping her crew trained and alert during ninety-day submerged patrols, and being prepared to launch weapons on valid presidential orders, carries a burden of command like few other jobs in the military. Mark Bishop is a man who accepts that responsibility, and handles it well. And at a time when tensions are escalating around the Pacific Rim, the Navy is glad to have him.Mark wants someone to come home to after sea patrols. The woman he has in mind is young, with a lovely smile, and very smart. She's a civilian, yet she understands the U.S. Navy culture. And he has a strong sense that life with her would never be boring. But she may be too deep in her work to see the potential in a relationship with him.Gina Gray would love to be married. She has always envisioned her life that way. A breakup she didn't see coming, though, has her focusing all her attention on what she does best--ocean science research. She's on the cusp of a major breakthrough, and she needs Mark Bishop's perspective and help. Because what she told the Navy she's figured out is only the beginning. If she's right, submarine warfare is about to enter a new and dangerous chapter.

    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?

    So she and her Nanny set sail for England and her father promises to follow soon.
    On board ship she meets Billie Baxter, the Conductor of a popular band, who has been a great success in America and is now returning home.
    He is upset because his pianist has been taken ill and so they cannot play for the passengers, which would mean special terms for them on the ship.
    Because Georgina feels sorry for Billie Baxter she agrees to become his pianist, but only during the voyage to England, as her father would not approve of her performing on a stage and Nanny has strong doubts as well.
    However, when the ship docks at Southampton, the pianist has to go straight to hospital and the band is due to play at the magnificent stately home of the handsome Duke of Stonebury the following evening and one of his guests is to be the Prince of Wales.
    Once again Georgina agrees reluctantly to help Billie Baxter.
    What happens when she arrives at the Duke's beautiful house and how unexpectedly she finds the real love she is seeking is told in this romantic story by BARBARA CARTLAND.
