I loved this book!!!
I absolutely adored this book! I read a lot and often get tired by predictable plots or over-dramatized turns of events. This book on the other hand was refreshing. I loved that it was completely believable, yet exciting enough to make your heart skip a beat or a sigh to rise up. I could not put this book down, sacrificing my sleep in the process. The chemistry between the main characters is wonderful, and the love story naturally grows. The male is the perfect swoon worthy hero, and the female lead is strong, vibrant, and yet lady-like, as the time and place calls for. I am often annoyed when books set in Regency times, give the female lead too much liberty to behave or speak with modern ideals, contrary to what is believable for the time and setting. This books strikes a perfect balance, in that respect.
I also very much enjoyed all the supporting characters. Falling in love with the crew of the ship, and as a result feeling the pain of the tragedies they endured on their voyage. The life on board the war vessel was fascinating. You can tell the author did a lot of research. I find myself more knowledgeable about ocean voyages during the era, yet do not feel like I sat through a history lecture. The author weaved the details remarkably, giving the story much depth.
I am very satisfied with this book, and can't wait to find another from this author, as this was the first book I've read by her.
Lastly, I must add that the narration was excellent.
