Publisher's Summary

Lady Philippa Knolles has loved Captain Thomas "Dash" Dashwell since he first stole a kiss from her on a smuggler's beach near Hastings. Now after what seems like a lifetime of waiting, Pippin is offered a chance to renew her scandalous affair with Dash. But the man from that first heady kiss and the man she rediscovers all these years later are hardly the same. 

Tucked away in the back of her closet is a red dress, the one she wore long ago to win his heart....Could it have enough memories left inside it to rekindle a passion she's never forgotten?

Boyle never disappoints

although it's a continuations of a series, this story can stand alone. boyle gives backstory where needed and, if you read the previous books, it even fills in things that weren't clarified in this tales. it's a lovely continuation of a tale from earlier books and well worth the time. the characters are older but still solidly hero and heroin material.

Why.

This is one of those thing you wast time on -time you won’t ever get back. I started to not get this book because I read a review which gave me pause. Her criticism was correct. I like reading about young love not old people in love with grown children. The author should of just left us wondering what happened when the hero escaped back to America. Just skip from the first chapter to the last. I hated this book. The others in the series is fine though.

My favorite in this series!!

I absolutely adore Pippa and Dash’s story. I read this book before it was available on Audible and enjoyed it all the more this go around. Susan D. definitely has a talent to bring a story to life. This series is extremely entertaining. I cannot wait for John and Molly’s story to be written!!

Too much time

This is just me personally. I do not care for books that are about older women and men. Especially when there has been this much time in between. I hope the next one follows right after this one instead of twenty some odd years later.

it was okay

They have my favorite love story from this series, but I don't like the way it jumps back and forth and retells the previous books so much. Overall a good book.

Did not finish

This was a huge disappointment after the others in the series The flashbacks were boring and Dash was just not worth having.

Beautiful

I love both characters. To get a better idea of how deep their relationship is, reading the two previous books, or a little bit of the one with Mad Jack when Dash is introduced. I love that the audience doesn't blow off her husband, and belittle their relationship. She honors its importance and the full meaning of it, how much she loved him. This is eluded to in the previous book with Thalia.
Bringing these two back together after so many years is romantic..even if it isn't exactly romantic in how they are brought back together.
Her son tickles me, and I hope he follows his mom's advice.
SPOILER ALERT HERE*** I am glad it was pointed out how he stopped drinking...definite alcoholism...he did it, she wasn't the one who stopped him. It's something one has to do for themselves. Also, how she honored the little boy on Dash's ship long-ago.
I will keep.coming back, even if there are some parts I'll skip.
I love the flashbacks.
