Publisher's Summary

A Virginia chocolatier and a privateering sea captain collide once more after a failed love affair a decade before. Will a war and a cache of regrets keep them apart? Or will a new shared vision reunite them? 

It is 1755, and the threat of war with France looms over colonial York, Virginia. Chocolatier Esmée Shaw is fighting her own battle of the heart. Having reached her 28th birthday, she is reconciled to life alone after a decade-old failed love affair from which she's never quite recovered. But she longs to find something worthwhile to do with her life.   

Captain Henri Lennox has returned to port after a lengthy absence, intent on completing the lighthouse in the dangerous Chesapeake Bay, a dream he once shared with Esmée. But when the colonial government asks him to lead a secret naval expedition against the French, his future is plunged into uncertainty.   

Will a war and a cache of regrets keep them apart, or can their shared vision and dedication to the colonial cause heal the wounds of the past? 

Best-selling and award-winning author Laura Frantz whisks you away to a time fraught with peril - on the sea and in the heart - in this redemptive, romantic story.

Sweet(chocolate) Salty(evil) Enduring( love)

This book had all and more. I love how Mrs. Frantz captured the past as if she was once there in that timeframe. I bought the audiobook version which is better than watching TV. What a well written book! Worth the wait. 50 stars out of 5 😃

Started Strong

I really enjoyed the first half of this novel but the second half was a slog to get through. It might have just been me though. I stuck with it but I’m the end I wouldn’t have missed anything quitting in the middle.

Tender second chance romance

Twists and turns abound in this clean pre-American colonial romance. This tender love story is presented well.
