Despite his first instinct being to send her back to China, James decides to let Little Tiger stay in Canada after he finds out that she is really not a boy but a young woman. Beyond wanting to be with James, Little Tiger is happy to be able to make some money and to be able to look for her father. Quickly, James falls in love with Little Tiger, as she had done with him a long time earlier. Beyond the issue of forbidden love because of racial differences, this relationship causes many problems. First, no one but James knows of Little Tiger's true gender. And second, Alfred wants James to marry Melanie Grant, one of James' previous conquests, if only to be able to have a known secure source of financing through her banker father. But Little Tiger also has to deal with the individual personalities of the crew, some of whom don't like her, especially as she stumbles onto some hidden information. It becomes particularly dangerous for her as she gets assigned to the explosives crew.
