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.

Excellent Revolutionary tale

I was pleasantly surprised by this wonderful story of the depth of loss and sacrifice during our Revolutionary war. The story of Brendon and Myra is full of humor as well as all the ups and downs of their tumultuous relationship. Beginning with a distasteful meeting and ending with a love that no war or loss could drown in a restless sea.
Wayne Farrel did a delightful narration even with his God awful singing, full of heartfelt Yankee devotion. Definitely 5 star worthy!
