Lilly of the Valley
Lilly survived and managed to swim to shore but was hit on the head with a board from the now doomed vessel before her feet touched the shore.
She was found the next morning by Kieran Gordan, Lord Dacre, a man of imminent wealth and stature, lost his brother in the Neoplonic Wars to a spy and swears vengence on the bastard who killed him. Walking on the beach after a massive storm the previous night he spots a body on the beach. He runs up and sees that what appears to be a cabin boy but when he turns the boy over he is stunned to see that it is a woman and that she is barely alive.
Kieran takes the female to his estate where she is cared for and he is wondering who she is and what was she doing on the beach and had she been there all night.
When Lilly wakes up she has no idea where she is let alone how long she had been out. The last thing she remembers is being hit by a wave and with it a board from the now doomed ship, knowking her unconcious, now here she was in a large bed and she was warm. All she hoped for was that she did end up back in France, where she knew that there was a price on her head because of who her father was.
