Louisa dreams not of glittering ballgowns but of exploring the tropical waters of the Caribbean with her latest invention, an underwater breathing apparatus.

No h/h chemistry

This story had no character development. I can't really understand why the h/h fell in love. There is no real dialogue, so I could not find out what interaction they had that created this undying love...just really weird.
the heroine was disguised as a man for the main part of their relationship, and it did not seem to the hero that his affection for a man was worrying. most men of that time would have been distressed.
The actions of the h/h don't really seem to make sense and everything is so unbelievable that I could not settle into the story. It may be odd, but I kept trying to understand how the heroine was smelling "like vanilla", when she had no opportunity to bathe or have a change/wash of her clothing, over the travel from England to St. Lucia. This is impossible! Many details are just thrown in with no explanation, so the story is very disjointed.
If you don't like the word "pinkened", which is used overly much in this story, then don't bother with this book. I don't recommend it and this was a waste of a credit.
