When boarding a captured galleon, Nick discovers the beautiful Dona Dominica de Rada y Sylva. He vows to return her and her sick father to the shores of Spain, and promptly falls in love with the spirited and reluctant beauty en route. Unfortunately El Beauvallet is a wanted man throughout Spain, and Dominica a member of a wealthy, prominent family. However, mere Spain will not stop Nick achieving his goals, especially if he can help the English gain intelligence of the Spaniards plans...
Nick is soon embarking on his most reckless venture yet, more dangerous than any of his exploits on the seas, and this time it is his wits alone against all of Spain.
