Karin was aboard the Ariadne ship to Australia, having the time of her life. Not only was her employer a darling, but she had a flock of admirers to keep at bay. If she could have changed one thing, it would have been to get as far away as possible for the arrogant Kent Willoughby, who made little effort to be friendly. Little did she know that the vessel was about to be shipwrecked in the Indian Ocean. Furthermore, the island she would make it to would also be inhabited by Kent and his servant! Getting along with this man on a stranded island now seemed like the only solution imaginable. Was it possible?
