*Book & Details provided by Net Galley in exchange for honest review.*
Lady Alexandra Seymour is going after her man. To make amends for a past deception, when she enlisted her connubial conquest’s aid in a scheme of hearts, she tells newly inducted Nautionnier Knight Jason Collingwood, “I will do anything.” But she ends up making his bed, instead of warming it. Still, Alex will not be discouraged, as she vows to meet and surpass his challenge, but will he meet hers?
When Alex arrives in Plymouth, Jason tries to resist the temptation she presents, but the highborn daughter of a duke will not be denied. As his storm-battered ship is refitted, he mends the rift in his relationship with the woman of his dreams, but war gets in the way, as duty calls. When Jason returns, six months later, hoping to surprise Alex with a proposal, he’s the one in for a shock, and he fears his lady may never again hold him as the captain of her heart.
Needless to say, this was another book that kept me up almost all night. Good for the author. Not so good for me. :)
There were some plot twists that I enjoyed (pregnancy). Also the characters were well developed. I have not read the other books in this series, so it was still new and fresh for me. Alex, at first, annoyed me, but as the story progressed her character seemed to grow into one that I could tolerate :)
A definite read for any fan of Ms. Devlin.
My Rating: 5 of 5
