Nora Adams believes she is only a schoolteacher and a poor seaman's widow until the day she inherits a fortune, and her mother sends her to London to deliver a mysterious message to a newly arrived foreign princess - who looks much like Nora. Once Princess Elena receives Nora's missive, she steals Nora's identity and vanishes. Left adrift in unfamiliar waters wearing ill-fitting royal shoes, Nora determinedly sets out in search of the real royal.
Nick Atherton long ago retired from his villainous life of piracy, but he's dragged out of his role as fashionable fribble to protect the princess - or the false princess. Nick would far rather seduce the comely widow, but to do so he must dodge French spies and pursue misbehaving royalty. For the fate of a nation, Devil Nick takes to the high seas again, but will that cost him the only woman he could ever love?

A fun caper--loved it!
Nick and Nora... I love the names of the two lead characters! If you love old movies ( think The Thin Man with Myrna Loy and William Powell) you'll get the reference.
Now, the plot is nothing like those movies, but the banter is. Witty, funny and sarcastic.
Nick is a rake. A social fribble. So why is the Home Office entrusting the safety of a visiting foreign princess to his care? Could there be more to Nick Atherton than meets the eye?
Now enter Nora. As the widow of a naval officer, his noble family has passed an inheritance on to her. In the process of bringing her to London, " to get some polish ", she discovers she's actually cousin to the princess! And they look very much alike.
Fun right? Well.., it was until the princess ran away, and then French spies started shooting at HER!!
The rest of the book is a wild caper with romance thrown in. I loved it. A totally fun read.
This is book 3 in a 4 book Rebellious Sons Series.
