As Captain Kelso and his ship, the Paragon, patrol the Indian coast, he is called to the aid of the Protector, flagship of the Marine, which is fighting against desperate odds in the face of five French warships.
After the bloody encounter, Kelso finds himself in line for promotion. Roger Kelso is made Commodore of the Bombay Marine, much to the chagrin of a rival captain who has married his friend Lady Susan Verity. This means he must leave his beloved Paragon and raise his pennant in Protector (44). To make matters worse Kelso falls in love with Lady Susan, his rival's wife, and the French and the Dutch want to dislodge the British and possess India themselves. Clive with the assistance of his friend Kelso must thwart their enemies without and within.)
