Publisher's Summary

Plunging from a well-bred lady to society’s most scandalous outcast, one woman faces danger and romance with a determination to live on her own terms London’s high society assumes that Alexandria Cassell, a lady of impeccable lineage, is eager to wed the first suitable aristocrat who proposes. But Alexandria despises the shallow mindlessness of London society. Craving adventure, she steals down to the docks and stows away aboard a merchant ship bound for Canada. Drake Barrett loves the open seas. As captain of his own vessel, he can escape his life as a duke, where he would be doomed to the empty chatter of glittering ballrooms. But when he finds a delicate beauty aboard ship, he forgets everything but a man’s desires.From a fleeting island paradise to a country caught in the sudden crossfire of war, Drake and Alexandria give in to a passion that just might reveal their true passions - if a shocking act of treachery doesn’t separate them forever. My Heart's Desire is the first book of the Barrett Family series, which concludes with Samantha.

    Story
    "High Sea Daydream Escape"

    This entertaining novel is a fast paced fun adventure that is a daydream escape for the young at heart.

    The “hero” Drake is a dashing anguished Duke who meets the beautiful feisty capable “heroine” Alexandria on board his ship. This charming high sea romance is a bit predictable but is lots of fun. It is truly a feel-good romance that is light on history and high on entertainment.

    If you are looking for a fun romantic adventure with great narration…..give this one a try! ;-)

    "Series books by Andrea Kane."

    I like series novels. They are romantic as well as interesting. Andrea Kane likes to do this, in keeping you in suspense.

    Story
    "Deeeeeeeelightful!!!!!!"

    What a happy and engaging story. I enjoyed it so much that I finished the book in one day and purchased the next one even though I have four other purchased books to read. Even though times were so rigid I can completely see Alex's character fitting as it is written. The Duke is also such a complex character who is very strong, and yet soft and gentle for his heroine. I loved this book and ALL the characters in it. Though a serious story, there are some funny lines in the book that also made me laugh out loud. You will not be disappointed.
