I am of several minds about this book. I actually found the characters engaging. I thought the hero and heroine had good chemistry. The plot kept moving, and there was a lot going on. So, in general, I liked the story as given. But I had other issues with aspects of this book. While I wouldn't call what happens at the end to be a true cliffhanger, the book does end very abruptly, in the middle of a pivotal scene (it feels like). I chose this book to review on a book review site because I enjoy h ...more

This is an enhanced, revised and reissued story originally published as Hart's Desire.
My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read


Landon Hart stumbles across a couple duelling but just before he interrupts them he realises they are training, he’s more surprised when he discovers the slight youth is in fact a very attractive young woman & he’s intrigued by that independent, spirited tempest, Keelan Grey. But, he isn’t prepared for the impact she has on his tightly-guarded heart,

Thank you netgalley for providing this ARC in exchange for an review.
This historical novel was decent. The heroine is spirited and independent but I felt a bit too reckless and quick to anger. Landon is a captain who comes to love her for her wit, bravery and beauty. He is very quick to flirt and had the heroine convinced he wanted nothing but a night in bed. Eventually he comes around and she surrenders. Worth the read but nothing special.

The first book in the Hearts of Adventure Sweet Romance Series, a well written story. Smuggler and ship’s captain Landon Hart and independent, spirited tempest, Keelan Grey's story kept me turning pages. They will have a lot to go through before they get their happy ending. This is the second book by this Author that I have read and I want to read more of her books.
