Rhum Bay by Andrea K. Stein

In the prequel to Pride of Honor, rum heiress Honore Blanchard vows Alex Duchamp de Chastaigne will never get his hands on her family’s business. When she works at the quay dressed as a young man, he shows up to pry. The bastard grandson of a Martinique shipping patriarch, he’s haunted by his father’s sins of seduction, thievery and murder. After years with a French privateer, he’s returned, a wealthy captain. He’ll stop at nothing to succeed, but he’d rather get his hands on Honore.
