 November, 1802. A truce holds in the war between England and France, but the conflict has moved into the lives of Commander Will Marshall and Lieutenant David Archer. Separated for nine months after Davy was wounded, they are now reunited in His Majesty's secret service—only to find that their relationship is still in troubled waters. With Will in command, he silently wrestles with the fear that his next order may send Davy into the path of another bullet—a fatal one. Davy has no idea why his lover has grown distant, but he does know that Will walked away once before, and never even answered his letters. Should he have returned? Their reunion was passionate, but Will's evasiveness makes him wonder if he has made a serious error. If their love is to survive, they must face and overcome their misunderstandings, before the tide of war sweeps over them once more.

Eye of the Storm, the third in the Royal Navy Series by Lee Rowan, travels from England to France with Will as Commander in charge of a covert mission. He and Davy are forced, once again, to confront the fears that both separate and join them and find a way to share their love in a time when it was more than just forbidden—when it was a crime.

 “Straighten your collar, Commander. And get your hand out of my breeches.”

William Marshall, Commander in His Majesty’s Royal Navy, choked on a laugh even as he reluctantly disengaged from a passionate, shockingly improper embrace with his dear friend and lover, David Archer. Davy was right, unfortunately. Their carriage was slowing as it reached its destination, and although fifteen minutes had not been near enough, it was more than he’d thought to ever have again.

“My love, I had to come home.” Will had been close to tears at that simple statement. He did not deserve such fidelity; he had not expected it. For months he had ignored Davy’s letters, a deliberate severance of contact that had been meant to turn his lover away from this unsuitable, dangerous attachment. But it had been to no avail. Davy had refused to accept Will’s self-immolation, and rejected the notion that parting was better for either of them. As soon as he had recovered fully from the gunshot wound he’d received on their last mission together, he had set about answering the desire of Will’s heart rather than his head, and it was impossible to wish he had done otherwise.

As the doorman at the inn approached to lower the carriage steps, Will glanced once more at Davy, and even the meeting of eyes was like a caress. “Later,” Davy said softly. “I did not come all the way from Jamaica for just a carriage ride.”

The door flipped open. There was no time to say more.
