Publisher's Summary

Following her sensational debut novel, Swept Away by a Kiss, author Katharine Ashe was named one of the "New Stars of Historical Romance" by the American Library Association publication Booklist. With each new book she has proven them right - and never more so than with her novel How to be a Proper Lady.

Continuing her phenomenal Falcon Club series, Ashe enchants with this tale of a woman kidnapped as a child by pirates and returned years later to her English family. She must now learn how to be a cultured lady...and to navigate the treacherous waters of love with the notorious sea captain who brought her, kicking and screaming, back to society.

This is witty, emotionally rich, and wonderfully imaginative storytelling that listeners of Lisa Kleypas, Eloisa James, and Johanna Lindsey will absolutely adore.

Contains mature themes.

A 24 Year Old Female Ships captain

is more of a talkative bully and not very likeable. He's not the bad boy he's made out to be. After a preposterous first half and the 2 falling in love, then she turns into Eliza Doolittle and ....well I really didn't care. I got my credit back on this one.

Entertaining

I very much enjoyed this book, even though not a likely circumstance. Beautiful, smart, sexy female boat captains were not common place in the early 1800's. Ms. Ashe, however, made the story fun with clever dialogue and kept the story moving with out getting bogged down with repeating details.

What ruined this book for me was the narration. Not so much Mary Sarah as she tried to breathe life into the characters, but volume issues. I listened to this book via my Kendal, with a speaker and finally using my iPhone. If I was able to get the normal reading loud enough, then when tones went up it blew my ear drums out. I was frustrated throughout, got my best results with the use of the iPhone.
