From the instant Hannah saw the older man, her eyes could not leave him. Every aspect of his appearance was startling. He was more than half a head taller than his young companion, with broad shoulders and noble posture that were enhanced by his elegant black suit. Through the left side of his neatly trimmed black hair ran a stark white streak from which descended a pale, narrow scar that cut through his sun-bronzed complexion and black chin-curtain beard, disappearing at last beneath his high starched collar. His long, well-formed legs could not be disguised by the straight cut of his trousers. Despite the scar, the classic features of his handsome face caused Hannah to feel as if she were gazing upon Homer’s mighty Greek warrior, the god-like Achilles. Why had Jeremiah called him old? The man was ageless. And he was the most magnificent man she had ever seen.

            She could barely mask her wonder before he turned from shaking her father’s hand to meet her. As his gaze traveled from face to foot and back again, his dark eyebrows arched with obvious approval. His crooked smile was charmingly roguish. As he bent forward and took her hand to kiss it, he murmured, “Aphrodite lives.”

            Had any other man greeted her thus, she would have drawn back, insulted . . . or at least confounded. But his compliment seemed so appropriate in the light of her own appraisal of him that she could only smile in return. “How nice to meet you, Captain Ahab.”
