In 1817 London, heiress Sophia Hathaway decides she cannot go through with a marriage in which love is not in the equation. Instead, she flees from the society wedding of the year posing as a governess. She takes with her only her paints and sketchbook as she boards the Aphrodite owned by Mr. Benedict Grayson as Miss Turner.

Gray hopes his new position as a respectable owner will help him bury at sea his rascally rakish reputation. However, he finds himself in a new situation he has never confronted before in his life; his gut insists he protect prim and proper Sophia even as he also wants to seduce her. As they fall in love while braving the High seas, she must tell him the truth as to who she is and he must grab at a chance for true redemption.

This is an entertaining Regency romance starring a rake seeking proof he is reformed and a daring heiress seeking a life outside the gilded cage. Their adventures on the High Seas make for a terrific historical that will have sub-genre fans seeking Tessa Dare's previous novel (see GODDESS OF THE HUNT).

Book #2, picks up on the beautiful Sophia Hathaway, who at the end of "Goddess" has jilted the prize of the season, Sir Toby - an amazing impetuous act for such an obedient and controlled Miss.

Taking on an assumed name and packing little more than her precious art materials and a packet of money secured around her waist, "Jane" meets Gray Grayson and books passage on his ship heading for Tortola where she says she has a governess job waiting for her. Sophia ...
Taking on an assumed name and packing little more than her precious art materials and a packet of money secured around her waist, "Jane" meets Gray Grayson and books passage on his ship heading for Tortola where she says she has a governess job waiting for her. Sophia and Gray are a match in insecurity, handsomeness, and passion. Although the author attempts to flesh them out as characters deeper than a siren and a charmer, this book is little more than an excuse for one pent-up steamy scene after another. (Both of Sophia and Gray do grow up by the end of their many trials at sea of storms and calms, accusations of piracy, personal and physical tensions et al). Several secondary characters - all seamen - are more interesting than they are. Disappointing.

    So-so

    I enjoyed this book, but I expected it to be a little more eventful. There were times where I wanted the plot to speed up! And, I felt like the story kind of abruptly ended. It's a good read, but don't expect greatness.

    Dragged a bit

    Would have preferred a bit more action and intensity. Sex scenes were very steamy!
