    Summary

    All Horatio wanted from his internship at the National Maritime Museum’s special collections was some time alone with the Nelson-era naval manuscripts. He didn’t expect to fall in love with one of the library patrons, an exuberant, confident actor about to make his film debut in a Napoleonic naval period piece.

    All Archie wanted was to leave the nightmare of RADA and Simpson far behind, and to start preparing for the role that would change his life. The last thing he expected was to fall for an adorably gangly, socially awkward naval history nerd who worked the special collections desk.

    But how do you navigate a new relationship when the past won’t stay in the past?

    Summary

    Jesse McCree never felt like he belonged on the water. He never felt like a born sailor or any other hokey poetic reason his crewmates might give as to why they dedicated their lives to such grueling work. He was a criminal and a cheat who needed an escape - and this was certainly one hell of an escape.
