Felicity Montague is through with pretending she prefers society parties to books about bonesetting—or that she’s not smarter than most people she knows, or that she cares about anything more than her dream of becoming a doctor.
Fresh off an accidentally whirlwind tour of Europe that she spent evading highwaymen and pirates with her brother Monty, Felicity has returned to England with one goal in mind—to enroll in medical school. However, her intellect and passion will never be enough in the eyes of the administrators, who see men as the sole guardians of science. But then a small window of hope opens. Felicity is offered a chance to break into this male-dominated world, although it might financially ruin her.
For the last year, she has been depending on the generosity of Callum Doyle, a lovestruck suitor from Edinburgh. But then he had to go and propose marriage. Felicity can think of nothing less appealing than giving up her career aspirations to become someone’s wife. Luckily, a mysterious young woman will pay handsomely for help with a heist—not for jewels, but for stolen sea charts that belong to the British Navy.
Despite the danger, Felicity’s tempted by the money, but she never expects to be swept up in a perilous quest that leads her from the German countryside to the promenades of Zurich to secrets lurking beneath the Atlantic.
