This is one of Kimble's hottest romances. The chemistry between Kimble and Marcie King, played by actress Bethel Leslie, burns up the screen, though Kimble has mixed emotions about her.
Kimble is working in the Florida Keys, tying up his boss's boat as a hurricane approaches. Marcie and her boyfriend, running from police because of a stock swindle, are looking for a boat to take them out to a small island where she has a house. Kimble at first refuses because of the storm, and because it is not his boat. Unfortunately, Marcie and Kimble have met before, and she forces Kimble to take them in the storm.
Marcie and Kimble are left alone on the island as the hurricane rages. She has hated Kimble for years since he refused to give her an abortion, leading her to seek a back alley abortionist who left her unable to have children. She gains more reason to hate Kimble as they weather the storm. They are highly suspicious of each other and come into frequent conflict, but ultimately fall into each other's arms. Circumstances destroy a plan (more hers than his) for them to run away together.
