Born to a respected family, seventeen-year-old English beauty Vieve Donnelle always gets what she wants. But when word arrives that her father’s estate isn’t as wealthy as it appears, the noble heiress must rethink her betrothal to an impoverished aristocrat.
Enter Captain Tyson Gervais, an infuriating colonial sea captain traveling to England for business in foreign trade. Despite high tensions between England and the colonies, Vieve can’t resist thinking about the dashing American merchant who elicits such conflicting reactions from her - making her feel both the sensual temptress and the childish fool in the same moment. Tyson never imagined he’d be dallying with a spoiled noble, but Vieve’s young, tempting curves seduce him against his better judgment. Though he knows a designing woman can wreak havoc, he aches for the chance to claim one as his own.

This book drove me crazy, and not in a good way. Tyson is an ass, Vieve is an adolescent, and the storyline is, I think, disjointed. The entire first third to half is about Vieve and Tyson. The last halfish, is the plot about Vieve's uncle. Its almost like 2 books. They don't really overlap a whole lot. Once the "happy couple" falls in love, that's the end of the romance part of the book, but you're only halfway through it. The second half of the book is Tyson trying to resolve Vieve's family situation. No real romance. No evolution of the couple, etc.
Write two books. Trying to combine the 2 didn't work.
I think Justine has a rather monotone voice. She did do the accents well however.
I dont know. They all were ok characters.
I don't understand so much about why this books was given such high reviews to begin with. Tyson all but raped Vieve, and accused her of terrible things repeatedly. I don't find that sexy or fun at all.
I love Epic Fantasy....have become a Historical Romance fan because I am a sucker for a good Happily Ever After. Good characters are a must
There was hardly any romance in this book.
I liked the narrators normal voice, but I didn't like her character voices because they sounded like they were crying. I hated the voice for Lenor. She didn't sound like the sophisticated whore/loose woman she was described as.
Tyson was an ass. Vieve was alright but she just wasn't a strong character.
I have said before Robyn Carr is hit or miss....this was a miss in my opinion. The actual story could have been pretty good, but characters were not very likable so I had trouble getting into the story.
I would suggest passing this one by.
Disappointing to see that it took more than half of the book to see only minimal hero and heroin interactions. Not certain why this is considered a historical romance when the story had more to do with everything except the romance. The passion was poor and only focused on the hero’s quick satisfaction not to mention that he played the victim almost all the way through. I was not impressed.
The story was good, but the reader is aweful. She always makes the women sound as if they are crying. It is unnerving.
