Man from the Sea
When Louise Falls first met Captain Nicholas Wentworth of the Royal Navy at a cocktail party, she was not impressed. He was arrogant, even hostile, and Louise would all but tease him. A year and a half later, she took on the task of becoming a companion to elderly Lady Berringer, whose grandson and heir turned out to be no other than the captain! They were now forced to forge a relationship of some kind, this time with some notable sparks in the air. The memorable love tale from the 20th century was written by Pamela Kent, a pseudonym of the romance writer Ida Pollock. A must-read for fans of literary romance and surprising twists of fate. Pamela Kent is a pseudonym of Ida Pollock (1908 – 2013), a highly successful British writer of over 125 romance novels translated into numerous languages and published across the world.
