Aboard The Dreadful Seadog, amidst a capturing of a lone merchant vessal, a tragedy struck Hawthorne. A terrible tragedy that tore his heart to shreds, the tattered pieces staining his bed, and leaving a massive hole in his chest. In the cover of night, with an aching heart and empty womb, Hawthorne leaves not only his blood-stained sheets behind but his captain, his husband, Finnian in search for a new life. A life that wouldn't cause him to repeat the loss of a life before it ever began, a third time... No matter the distance and time that past, trouble and Finnian always follows Hawthorne like a moth to flame, he may have left the seas behind him, but the salt lingers in his veins and a certain captain who holds the key to his heart and soul won't let him go. Afterall, an Alpha will never let his Omega go, he'll part oceans to get what belongs to him, especially after he stole his ship and left him marooned on an island. As they say, there's a fine line between love and hate.
