Publisher's Description

The sea is Deirdre MacKenzie’s home, and the crew of her father’s Baltimore clipper is the only family she loves. She’s happier wearing breeches and climbing the rigging of the Maid of Alexandria than donning a dress and learning to curtsy. But when the War of 1812 erupts, the ship is captured by a British privateer, leaving her father, the captain, dead. Deirdre watches her crew herded into the hold, destined for the notorious Dartmoor prison in England. Though her fate as a noncombatant is uncertain, she knows she must find a way to free her crew.

Kieran Ashford has caused his family one too many scandals. On his way to exile in America, he is waylaid by the declaration of war and a chance to turn privateer and make his own fortune. But he regrets his actions as soon as the rich prize is secured. Now his best chance at redeeming himself in the eyes of his family is to offer Deirdre the protection of his name in marriage.

But love and loyalty clash as Kieran begins to win Deirdre’s heart despite her plot to betray him. Will Kieran’s plan mend the relationship with his family, and can this fated couple find true love despite the secret lies between them?

    Fans of Poldark and Horatio Hornblower will enjoy this intriguing romantic adventure tale set during the War of 1812, that brings together a couple who could not be more opposite: an English nobleman acting as a privateer, and an American captain's daughter who is a better sailor than most of his crew! Dierdre has little choice but to agree to a marriage of convenience set before her as the only way to avoid imprisonment, and the best hope of helping free her ship's crew who are taken as prisoners of war. Her captor just wants to repair his damaged reputation, and earn his father's respect. Both have an agenda, so neither expect much out of the agreement, but when plans go awry their feelings change, making the tension build towards an exciting ending!

    There is a lot of romantic tension between the main characters, which seems to pull them apart as much as push them together. It was hard to guess how their story would end. I really liked Dierdre's loyalty to her crew, whom she saw as her family, and their commitment to watch out for her. Her divided loyalties in her situation set up some interesting ethical dilemmas. She was a fun character to see develop, especially as she traded her seaman persona to become a lady. Kieran was so set on his own agenda that he seemed oblivious to her needs most of the time; probably typical of the time period. His mother and sisters were a nice addition to the mix. I look forward to seeing some of them in future books, as the preview seemed to hint at.

    Readers who enjoy a romantic historical adventure will probably like this book. There are no overt faith elements, and the romance includes many mentions of sexual relationships (without details), making this a story that may appeal to readers of general fiction also.

    This was a great swashbuckling romance story. It makes you feel comfortable on the seas. You feel seasick while you are reading, the author is so good in talking to you about the water. You do know within the first few pages that the author is experienced with the high seas. She uses all the terminology of the ships of the 1800's. If there was anything that I had to complain about anything that would be the one thing I would have to say is that she used a little too much terminology of the high seas. Things like rigging, crosstrees, and sweeps. This is a Story about Deirdre whose father was killed by Kieran and his men and then captured her and her men. They were then captured and taken to England to be taken into captivity because of the war with England and then the story that goes on - from there the romance starts. He finds out that she is the passed away mans daughter. Then he ............nah I can't tell you -- you have to get the book - you will NOT believe what happens - just know GOD delivers.
