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! ;-)
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.
