But along the way, he discovers her beautifully unbreakable spirit...and a desire unlike any he's ever known. She is hiding something from him, and yet, each day that passes brings her deeper into his heart. When fierce arguments give way to fiercer passion, can a pirate learn to love a woman?

Eloquently Written Pirate Romance
This book was written in the 1980's and has become a romance classic. I've read this in the past and I think it's even better with narration.
I love historical romances that are written with feeling, detail, character development and good romance....and this book delivered it all for me. It is a fun listen with many story and character twists along the way.
This is one of those books where ALL the characters are written so well that they feel multi-dimensional. The characters range from innocent, quirky, silly, mischievous and mysterious. The story takes us on a journey of the classic "damsel in distress" meets "misfit pirates". It is a voyage that historical romance lovers will enjoy. Yes, it's long, but with all its quirky adventure and charm it's definitely worth the time and credit.
The narrator did an excellent job with this sweet, funny, exciting, romantic, quirky, mysterious story. This is a must listen for anyone who enjoys a good swashbuckling pirate romance.

Great listen; didn't even notice it was so long!
"Windflower" was an engrossing listen. It is a WHOPPING 18 hours long, but the narrator moves it along at a good pace, and keeps the energy level appropriate to the story. Although the book gets quite wordy in spots, the story is well-written and my favorite part about it is that the authors incorporate humor into many of the situations. The change of scenery throughout the book (from an estate in America, to taverns, to pirate ships, to remote islands, to the English countryside) kept the plot engaging. Each character is very well-developed, and toward the end of the book, many questions the listener may have about some of the main characters are explained cleverly and eloquently.
There were a myriad of characters with wide variances in personalities and each was voiced competently by the narrator, who was consistent in her accents and cadences. She differentiated between each character very well, and voiced the many male characters with surprising agility, which can be challenging for a female narrator. The narrator has a sultry voice, which lends itself well to the suspenseful scenes, and the romance scenes as well.
I would highly recommend this audiobook to anyone who enjoys a good romance with adventure and humor woven in. I rate the narration an A+ and the story an A.
I received a free download of this book as a gift, no strings attached.
