Charlotte Morgan grieves her sister’s death so much. If cocky Conrad Deaton knew anything about grief perhaps he wouldn’t be so harsh on her or her brother-in-law/Conrad’s brother. But no he must seek to take charge of a situation. And Charlotte made a promise to her dying sister to care for the two wee ones she left behind. And just because Conrad thinks he must drag them aboard a ship to be raised by their father doesn’t mean Charlotte is going to sit back and twiddle her thumbs and watch it happen. So she goes. And what an adventure it will turn out to be.
I know, I know. I was less-than thrilled with the first book in this series but dadgum it – this book involves ships, the War of 1812 and one heck of a book blurb. So, being the glutton for punishment I am I dived in. It really wasn’t that bad. Much cleaner than For Love or Loyalty, I’ll say that much. Lately I haven’t been able to get enough War of 1812 literature and when this book hit the websites I was naturally drawn to it. With plenty of action and tension between hero and heroine I think most readers will find this quite the story. Though beware, there’s a lot of sadness and [spoiler alert] also a death that one probably will not see coming. Overall well worth a read.
