The honeymoon cruise was already booked.
It was to have been a dream trip-Hawaii, the Pacific Islands and on to Australia. But Robyn had been jilted by her fiance.
Her heart and her pride had taken a battering, so Robyn was glad for the flirtatious attentions of Kit Lattimer-even though she didn't take him seriously. His friend Stephen Shelby was another matter, however. He got under her skin right away.
He presumed he knew why she was traveling alone. "To meet the right people?" he suggested contemptuously. "to catch a husband?" Stephen Shelby could go to the devil!
