Charlotte Winston has spent her life in England, caring for her dying mother; her only escape her vivid imagination. She would dream of a life of adventure, even conjuring up a handsome pirate who would whisk her away. After her mother dies, Charlotte sails to Montreal to her father, a general in the British army. Part of her reason for leaving England is the possible return of Captain Levid, of the Royal Navy, who her father arranged for her to marry. Charlotte thinks seasickness will be the worst part of her journey until her ship is attacked. The year is 1812 and England and the United States are at war.

When Charlotte first sees the American captain, she is shocked to find that he looks exactly like her imaginary pirate. Captain Knox is unimpressed by the young lady until she mentions she is the betrothed to Captain Levid.

As soon as Charlotte mentions her father and Captain Levid, she realizes her mistake. Captain Knox insists Charlotte tell him where Captain Levid is. Though Charlotte hardly knows the man, dislikes what she does know and has no idea where Levid is, she does consider herself a patriotic Englishwoman and refuses to answer.

Jonathan Knox is searching for his brother who was impressed by Captain Levid. He takes Charlotte to his cabin and refuses to let her go until she gives him information about Levid. Not knowing why the American captain wants to know about Levid, and having a difficult time separating him from the pirate of her daydreams, Charlotte continues to refuse to give Captain Knox any information, even when he tries to seduce her.

Jonathan is captured by Levid and with Charlotte taken to Montreal. Charlotte learns of a plot to kill Captain Knox, tries to warn him and in the process becomes his prisoner again.

As they flee south toward Jonathan Knox's home the desire the two have for one another heightens. But it takes Dolley Madison to bring the lovers together and assure a happy ending.
