The Titanic was called the “ship of dreams.” But for Katie O’Reilly, it was more than a dream. It was her destiny. Katie runs away from the grand house in Ireland where she is in service after she is wrongly accused of stealing a diamond bracelet. Aye, the law is after her, but she has one chance to escape. The Titanic.
Katie boards the ship of dreams and runs straight into the arms of Captain Lord Jack Blackthorn, a dashing gentleman gambler who promises to be her protector. If she takes off her clothes.
Aye, Captain Lord Blackthorn is intrigued by the Irish beauty and has plans to make her his mistress before they reach New York. Only one thing stands in his way: the lovely Countess of Marbury. She’s in love with Jack but engaged to his old friend, millionaire Treyton Brady.
Katie and Jack spend four glorious days at sea on the Titanic. The ship is a floating palace with elegant décor and elaborate menus, Turkish baths, a gym and a swimming pool. The handsome gambler awakens a forbidden passion in Katie that tempts her to give up her dream of freedom as she falls under his spell.
Until that fateful night when the Titanic hits an iceberg at 11:40 p.m. on Sunday, April 14, 1912.
The Titanic is sinking fast. Passion and prejudice rule the filling of the lifeboats with chaos everywhere. Then tragedy strikes when Katie is separated from Jack and she must make a daring choice that will change her life forever.
