What a wonderful love story.I loved the characters they were intriguing ,funny,kind protective,stern an all so love-able.I definitely would love to read more books in its series.

Samantha plotted and made plans to get herself out of a bad situation where she is being beaten, raped and tortured with the help of a f

This was an extraordinary read! I was expecting the same old type of ships captain and miss romance instead, I was given a book that was spellbinding. I went through an entire range of emotions while reading this book. That makes it a book that I will remember which means it is a GREAT READ! This is not the normal Captain romance historical. Instead there are depths to the story as well as the characters. Each part of this read was truly amazing. So I would say don't expect this to be the norm.. ...more
