Release day: Catching Captain Nash

30 June 2017

Today is the official release of Catching Captain Nash by Anna Campbell (book 6, The Dashing Widows) (ebook, self-published). Here’s the blurb:

Home is the sailor, home from the sea…

Five years after he’s lost off the coast of South America, presumed dead, Captain Robert Nash escapes cruel captivity, and returns to London and the bride he loves, but barely knows. When he stumbles back into the family home, he’s appalled to find himself gate-crashing the party celebrating his wife’s engagement to another man.

No red-blooded naval officer takes a challenge like this lying down; but five years is a long time, and beautiful, passionate Morwenna has clearly found a life without him. Can he win back the wife who gave him a reason to survive his ordeal? Or will the woman who haunts his every thought remain eternally out of reach?

Love lost and found? Or love lost forever?

Since hearing of her beloved husband’s death, Morwenna Nash has been mired in grief. After five bleak years without him, she must summon every ounce of courage and determination to become a Dashing Widow and rejoin the social whirl. She owes it to her young daughter to break free of old sorrow and find a new purpose in life, even if that means accepting a loveless marriage.

It’s a miracle when Robert returns from the grave, and despite the awkward circumstances of his arrival, she’s overjoyed that her husband has come back to her at last. But after years of suffering, he’s not the handsome, laughing charmer she remembers. Instead he’s a grim shadow of his former dashing self. He can’t hide how much he still wants her—but does passion equal love?

Can Morwenna and Robert bridge the chasm of absence, suffering and mistrust, and find the way back to each other?

Anna dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:

It’s always a bittersweet moment to reach the end of writing a long-running series, and I’ll definitely miss working on the Dashing Widows books, which started back in September 2015 with The Seduction of Lord Stone. After all, they’ve now been with me for six stories and heading on for two years. The last story in the cycle is Catching Captain Nash, which is a change of pace from the others. I decided to write a twist on the widow theme by having a ‘widow’ who wasn’t really a widow after all. That led to a very emotional story about two faithful lovers finding their way back to each other after grief and suffering. I shed a few tears writing this one—I’m hoping I make my readers cry, too! I’m a mean girl like that!

You can find out more about this book at Anna’s website or buy it from Amazon.
