Unless a Love Be Free is not your usual set-in-England-spunky-rags-to-riches-heroine-falls-for-a man-of-noble-birth romantic story. It is the tale of two people, prisoners of their pasts, who share a dream of freedom. When they meet, each believes freedom is to be found somewhere other than where they are.
As their stories unwind and combine, as curiosity leads to a fragile bond of trust, both begin to understand that what they seek is within, built on a foundation of self-acceptance and honesty, nurtured by love. Their odyssey begins in the confines of an island prison and climaxes on the vast reaches of the open sea, a metaphor for the journey of their hearts.

Garrick Stuart looked every inch the dangerous privateer he was proclaimed to be…until she looked into his eyes.
