Publisher's Description

Captain of Her Heart 

Sold into slavery by her jealous sisters, Ada finds herself captive on the ship of a Greek merchant. Expecting a harsh new master, she's surprised to find the captain compassionate—and attractive. Yet she can't fall for the man who owns her—not when she watched her enslaved mother pine after her unyielding father. 

Nicolaus only wants to rescue the beautiful, mistreated woman from the auction block. He plans to free Ada, just as soon as he secures his inheritance. Which means racing the ship back to his homeland to best his brother. If he loses, all his cargo will be forfeited—including Ada. But as perilous storms reveal her courage and grace, the question becomes, can his heart stand to let her go?

    Christina Rich is one of the very few authors who can lure me into a biblical historical setting. In this case, 668 B.C. Her talent is in evoking lush images with her carefully phrased words. I'm convinced this author has lived in this time period or possesses a time machine and has travelled there -- her descriptions and settings read that real.

    Can I call a Greek hero swashbuckling? Because that's the word that comes to mind when describing Nicolaus. He has the air (and allure) of a pirate -- though he's not quite as rough around the edges. Quick to anger at times and often abrupt, Ada pushes all the wrong buttons. You might say it isn't long before the tables are turned and it's the ship's captain who becomes the real captive.

    Ada is unique among women. She's lived a confusing life -- considered part of a family but not good enough to really belong. Growing up in that kind of environment has made her a mix of contradictions. At times bold and outspoken, she can certainly hold her own against her captor. But she is also hesitant and vulnerable, despairing of ever finding a place to belong.

    Rich has created an action-packed tale full of heroism and sacrifice...and the spice of sweet romance.
