What a simply captivating, enjoyable read filled with action
This was a simply riveting read from start to finish, the story was filled with plenty of surprises and the characters were simply wonderful.

"Her Very Strict Captain" by Maggie Carpenter is a book full of action and unexpected surprises. I’ve read a good number of books by this author add they were all enjoyable, but I have to say this is one of her best.

Scott owns a successful a sailing school and charter business. He’s a handsome, compelling and dominant man who takes everything in life seriously, including pleasure. Elizabeth, (sometimes known as Beth), charters one of his boats, and the chemistry between them is immediately appar

CAUTION! Captain Scott is sizzling hot...and so is this sexy story!

This book has more twists and turns than a switchback mountain road, featuring amazing characters you’ll fall in love with—except for the villains—but you’ll love it when they get their just desserts. While reading this, seriously one of Maggie Carpenter’s best yet, you’ll feel like you’ve sailed away to a vacation in the Virgin Islands.

Intriguing Suspense Romance

Her Very Strict Captain is a muti faceted novel. Yes Scott is a Very Strict Captain who owns a sailing school & charter business in th but that's just his current surface dimension. We meet Elizabeth an undercover DEA agent and their explosive journey begins.

Included in the novel are fascinating supporting characters that assist in the twists and turns of the story. As the story pulls you deeper there is a growing depth to Scott & Elizabeth's chemistry and relentless

I have to be honest, in my opinion, Maggie Carpenter's "Her Very Strict Captain" is probably one of the best books she's written to date! This one pulled me in from the very beginning with the very strict, very dominant, very drool-worthy Scott Specter. He's the owner of a sailing school and charter business who takes his responsibilities very series. Of course, I knew he would just from Maggie's description of him. ~sigh~ And then there's Elizabeth, aka Beth, the undercover DEA agent with a bra ...more

Just call him Captain

Her Very Strict Captain is a mix of mystery, romance and D/s. I was sucked into the story from the start and found it hard to put my Kindle down as I was reading. The story kept me on edge and my mind wondering what was going to happen next as the twists and turns just kept coming. The characters of Scott Specter and Beth Cameron are both well written with a lot of depth and intrigue to them. Together make an interesting couple as they both have their secrets, which will cra

Love him..her not so much

Scott and Elizabeth.. what can I say. He's everything a reader wants in a former SEAL, current CIA agent/boating school operator. As a DEA agent, she doesn't have a clue. Sure, eventually they make a good couple, la di dah, and they live happily ever after but sometimes she is a major dunderhead. The suspense story is a good one though with more than a few twists and turns so it makes up for Dizzy Lizzy's shortcomings.

Scott thinks Elizabeth is just another client out for a cruise. She is anything but... Well he is not exactly what he seems either. While he is observing trafficking, she is looking to bring down a drug lord. So they have the same goal together separately. But she is a bad girl who doesn’t follow instructions and gets her behind in a world of trouble. Very well written and lots of action and intrigue. And it is hot, hot!

Ms. Carpenter, you're amazing, even when the main isn't a rough cowboy!!!!

I very much enjoyed the main and supporting characters!

We had a sumptuous trip to the Virgin Islands. On top of that, we have a former navy seal, on a covert operation.

Ms. Carpenter definitely had me fooled many times over; I loved it!

What wonderfully entertaining hours!

Man oh man, there are some hot, sexy scenes!!!

Elizabeth and Scott joint forces to bring down a drug kingpin while falling in love. Elizabeth does not do a very good job of behaving as her job requires. Scott is always the cooler head—until he starts spanking. There is quite a bit of drama and a bit of mystery, plus a few people who are not at all who you think they are. One in particular was a doozie. A little on the long side, but it didn’t drag.

I received a free copy of this book.

Scott is definitely the strict captain. When Elizabeth comes on board, the sparks fly between them. But then Elizabeth disappears for six months! When she shows back up, asking for help, all he** breaks loose. They are both undercover, but for different agencies and they don't know about each other, at first. But they are hot together and they get their HEA. What a great book, Maggie Carpenter!

I received an advance copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Finally finished

This story took me a long time to finish. I didn't find it completely engaging. It was interesting enough to keep me coming back, but I could be easily distracted. This is what I call the long bedtime story - puts me to sleep in three pages so takes a long time to read. There was a story that did have interest, but didn't hold me hostage.

A full on storyline full of action and intrigue

A really enjoyable read that keeps you guessing who is good, who is not so good. Lots of twists and turns, a couple of kick ass main characters you really relate to. You can see they were meant for each other, this book has it all, strong leads, fully encompassing storyline which makes a change. Definately worth reading.

Undercover agent Elizabeth runs into the one man in the world who can help her get out of the fix she's in. Who can help her take down a criminal kingpin. Scott has secrets of his own. Poor Beth soon realizes that Scott is also not afraid to take her over his knee to burn her bottom. This is a good book full of danger, mystery and hot sexy times. ...more

This is a new author to me and I definitely, definitely will be checking out more of her work!! The characters are well developed and the storyline intriguing, suspenseful and drama filled. Scott and Elizabeth or not but they seem. He thinks she is just another passenger on the cruise but he couldn’t be more wrong. She thinks he’s just a boating instructor and she couldn’t be more wrong. She is on this adventure to bring down a drug lord while he is observing trafficking. Elizabeth doesn’t follo ...more
