Publisher's Summary

He wanted no woman, except one made of sails and wood and wind.
Handsome, wily Irish privateer Captain Brendan Jay Merrick is running from a painful past - and fighting for a new nation's future when he arrives in the colonial town of Newburyport, Massachusetts, with plans for shipwright Ephraim Ashton to build his magnificent new schooner. Brendan's daring sea battles against His Majesty's fleet have made him a legend in his adopted country - but one look at the dashing stranger and Ashton's daughter Mira starts making plans of her own.
She wanted no man - but him. Brash, hot-tempered, and born at sea in a raging gale, Mira Ashton is more than most men can manage. Disguising herself as a crew member and sneaking aboard Brendan's newly-built Kestrel, she becomes the schooner's finest gunner - and the captain's most outrageous distraction. As desire ignites between them, Mira finds herself competing against Kestrel for Brendan's love. But when tragedy strikes, Mira must join forces with her mighty rival in a daring adventure that turns the tide of battle and brings glorious victory to the colonists, the captain - and the lady who has captured his heart.

5 Stars All The Way

Would you listen to Captain of My Heart again? Why?

I will definitely listen to this book again. Not only is the story perfect making you feel the gamut of emotions, but the narrator's voice is like honey. His characterisation is perfection, and he brings the story to life. Danelle's books and Wayne's narration are the perfect coupling.


What other book might you compare Captain of My Heart to and why?

Wicked at Heart by Danelle Harmon and narrated by Wayne Farrell once again is a book that I can compare this one too. It's because both books were equally wonderful. Both have exciting story lines, and both have been brought to life by the narration.


Which scene was your favorite?

How do you say which scene is a favourite without giving away any spoilers?? Suffice to say that in one of the scenes Brendan is finally let into a secret and the way it unfolds is funny, sweet, and sassy just like the person whose secret it is :D


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Oh yes indeed I did have moments during the book when I cried and laughed. I read the book first and found the story very emotional. Wayne's narration though adds a whole other element to the story, and as you don't have to focus on reading the words it is all too easy to let the tears flow.


Any additional comments?

I can't say enough to compliment just how perfect this audio book is, the only other thing I can say is to not just take my word for it, listen to a sample of the audio, and I am sure you will want to purchase this after that.

- DragonRose UK "Love Reading"

Mixed emotions but mostly good

This is my first book by this author. I've heard great praise for her work and I was looking forward to reading this. I have mixed emotions.

1) Mira. Why did she yell so much? I wonder if I had read this rather than listen to the audiobook maybe the yelling wouldn't have been so obvious or annoying.

2) Her Father. Same thing with the yelling.

3) Brendan. Loved him! Totally. Luck of the Irish indeed.

4) Battle of the Penobscot. Great historical detail. That's my neighborhood so it was good that the author got so much right. (More than I can say for some of the narrator's pronunciations.)

5) The Narrator. Great voice. Overall very good job with this. His accent (Wayne Farrell is Irish) is delightful.

The story was very entertaining. I rate it a 3.5. I'll read/listen to more of this series.
