I really enjoyed this clean romance. It was interesting and well researched. The story never lagged or slowed it was always engaging and heart felt. I really appreciated the author's note at the end explaining her portrayal of slavery and the call to help victims of human trafficking right now.
WHAT IT'S ABOUT
Suffering from a cruel heartbreak, Lord Philip Hamilton has been driven to seek refuge from the painful memories haunting London, and his father’s Jamaican sugar cane plantation provides just the escape he needs. Philip finds solace in his hard work and takes comfort in the fact that his distance from society ensures that his heart will be protected from future entanglements. Protected, that is, until the unexpected appearance of a mysterious woman with no memory of her past. The only clue to her identity is a necklace inscribed with a name: Anna. In a matter of weeks, this gentle, intelligent, and impossibly beautiful stranger turns Philip’s world upside down. But as the bond between the pair grows, the threat of Philip losing his heart once more is only the beginning of the dangers that await. Island renegades and a ruthless band of pirates clash in a swashbuckling battle, and it soon becomes clear that these villains may be the key to unlocking Anna’s past . . .
This was a very sweet love story that touched on some difficult subjects, including slavery and the abuses that went with that. I really liked both Philip and Anna, and I enjoyed seeing their love story take place.
I wondered, with all the concerns about propriety, that no one questioned that Anna was staying in the home of a bachelor with a minimal staff. Philip also seemed to have no problem with Anna's status as a servant when he finally found out who she was. I'd have liked to have seen him at least wonder about that.
Otherwise a delightful read.
