Responsibility weighs heavily upon Captain Graeme Shepherd’s shoulders. Hundreds of men’s lives are in his hands as he marches them toward one of the bloodiest battles of the American Civil War. But the more pressing concern is what to do about his desire for the wife of his second in command. And for his lieutenant himself.
Lieutenant Peter Oberon has it all—an amazing wife and a respectable commission in the Union army, serving a captain he values in more ways than one. Creature comforts are few, but life could be much more difficult.
Diana Oberon is a woman ahead of her time, headstrong and opinionated, with a husband who honors her freedom, and the intriguing attentions of his superior officer. She follows her husband’s unit as much out of a sense of adventure as out of loyalty to her two lovers.
But none of these people are real.
A freak accident has pulled Graeme, Peter, and Diana through time, through reality, through identity itself to a world where war is the least of their concerns. Considering that the final destination in question is the Battle of Gettysburg, that’s saying something indeed…

For Graeme Shepherd, words have always been important, be it complex spells or ancient, difficult to decipher texts. From sorcerer for hire to Ancient Studies professor, language and the ability to communicate have been his life.
But a mysterious ailment is slowly robbing him of the ability to express himself, every day bringing him closer to being locked away in his own head.
With his lovers Diana Glendower and Peter Oberon by his side, it becomes a race against the clock to find out what is turning a brilliant man into a gibbering idiot. When modern medicine fails to provide any answers, one avenue remains. Magic.
And the answer is more devastating than any of them could imagine.
Nicholas Randolph has had his life mapped out for him with little regard for what he wanted. Sailing home from a business trip to America, Nicholas's ship is beset by the privateer ship Lucifer, captained by a dangerous, beautiful woman who takes him hostage and forces him to serve aboard her ship. But as days and weeks lengthen into months, Nicholas begins to find in his captivity a freedom he has never known. And he finds in the captain a woman very similar to himself, trapped in a role of someone else's choosing.
Emma Sullivan has known only the sea her whole life, a tie more powerful for her even than love. But as Nicholas works his way into the life of her ship, he begins to make her question if she can't be a captain and a woman, too. Given the right partner.
The seas never run smoothly, and even as these two enemies work their way towards something more, storm clouds are brewing which will chase them from the crystal waters of the Caribbean to the very heart of London itself. To overcome the perils in their path and find happiness, Nicholas and Emma will need to choose the star to steer by.
