Set in beautiful Corfu this romantic tale is both beautiful and funny.
Alessa saves Chance from being killed, granted its because as an English Lord having his murdered body found on her doorstep is beyond troublesome.
To repay this unusual woman Chance is determined to restore her into her very proper English families embrace. After all its the honorable thing to do, even if she doesn't want to rejoin them!
So in tales a story of misunderstandings and finally piracy.
Wonderful story a must read.
Great story! I specially liked the non-traditional scene of the exotic island, the heroine with the secret past, the whole romance of her own story and how it intertwines with the actual love story bringing up the romantic level of the whole thing. I don't give it five stars because I have a problem with parts where the vocabulary sounds "too modern" but all in all is a beautiful, romantic and even old-fashioned romance. Very sweet and sexy.

Enjoyable story, kept me gripped all the way through. The characters were sympathetic without being paragons. I really enjoyed it. Recommended.

I have had my nose buried in a history book - fact or fiction - for as long as I can remember, but even more important to me are the places and the objects that conjure up the past. My first attempt at historical fiction
