He'd never let a woman ruin his beloved bachelorhood... not until he met the fiesty ship captain, that is.
As lighthouse tender to two magnificent lighthouses off the Oregon coast, Arthur Hugh treasures his time spent fishing in the bay and the isolation of living in a small lumber town. He can do what he wants, whenever he wants, answering to no one. But when a little boy shows up in Spruce Hill and turns Arthur's life upside down, he begins to rethink everything that is important to him.
Bent on saving her family's floundering freight business, Captain Sarah Ballinder has problems enough of her own without having to put up with an irritating ox of a man like Mr. Hugh. Forced to work together on a lighthouse project, Sarah wonders if anything worse could happen. She never imagined she could fall for the very man she despised...
The Captain's Duty is book 9 in the Keepers of the Light multi-author series and can be read as a standalone, though would be best appreciated if read in order.
