Definitely the worst Kat Martin book I've read so far.

Marcus and Brandy's relationship was all kinds of wrong.

First of all, I didn't like how he thought of her as a child, which I sort of thought it too due to her childishness, yet entertained sexual thoughts about her almost from the get go.

The fact he kept using the words 'sweet' and 'little' to describe her just strengthened this feeling.

Also, what can I say about a man who has sex with a young, naive woman that is virtually alone and defense

I think my favorite part of this book was the afterword from the author. She was inspired by the song "Brandy" and I enjoyed that she wrote a book from that inspiration. Aside from that, the book wasn't highly sensual, nor did it have any major plot twists that really caught my attention. It was a decent romance, easy reading but not mind-blowing.

I'm disappointed to say that this is my least favorite Kat Martin book so far. I usually find her writing to be fun and passionate, and I felt that this story, and these characters, had all the makings for another wonderful book... they just didn't quite hit the mark.

Where the publishers get the names for some of these books.... The title Night Secrets definitely does NOT give you any sort of idea what this book is about, so here goes:

Brandy is a tavern wench in America. Marcus is the captain of a merchant ship, for a shipping company he also owns. They've known one another for years, and during that time she's secretly harbored a love for him while he continues to think of her as a child.

That is, until he discovers she's stowed away on his ship en route for

Other than the novelty of this story being based on a 3-4 minute song from the 60's (Brandy, you're a fine girl, what a good wife you would be, but my life, my lover, my lady, is the sea.) there isn't a lot new and different about this book. I found the first portion of the book where the hero and heroine meet(and more) enjoyable but the second half was so full of self-loathing and angst that I had trouble wading through it to get to the HEA, which was a bit contrived. Still, I enjoy much of Ms. ...more

"I prayed you would come. I prayed just as hard that you would not"

"Please, He silently prayed, make her go away. But even as he thought these words, another, even more fervent plea rose inside him. Please, GOD, Let her STAY.."

I love this book. I laughed, I cried, and I hurt when ever Marcus would leave. It was such a moving story that I had a hard time putting it down. Thank you for such a great read.

The life of Brandy is not enviable. She dares to dream of seeing the world and stowes away. You expect the same boy chases girl kind of story but there are twist and turns, making it a good read.

Very smexy. I thought this book was a little boring in parts however, but that may have been because of the location for near most of the novel.

Stowaway girl on a merchant ship, the captain has been her hero and crush so of course he'll not be too mad she thinks, right? Wrong. Drama & sex with a smidge of romance.

Surprisingly nautical, clearly Kat did some research. Definitely worth the read even if it was a bit ridiculous at times.
