Overview

French billionaire Marcel Mercier loves women. And there's a string of broken hearts across two continents to prove it. But as CEO of Mercier Shipping, he's got more important things to worry about … like why the charter company he just purchased in the United States is suddenly the center of an international media firestorm.

Now that big, bad Mercier Shipping owns Captain Dani Lloyd's ship, she's sure her job is at stake. But she won't go down without a fight—even if it means chaining herself to the mast of the Esther Reed and refusing to set foot on shore.

The delectable captain and her newsworthy dramatics are a PR nightmare, but Marcel is happy to let Dani prove her skills on a weeklong sail to Boston. He knows no woman can resist him for that long … in fact, he's counting on it.

But Marcel's plan to seduce Dani backfires as sparks fly between the billionaire playboy and the passionate captain. Which leaves Marcel realizing that winning her heart is a challenge he can't afford to lose.

I read the about Andy and Julie and I enjoyed it. I just completed this one and it is good. I liked how the author had the hero speaking both English and French. It made sense. I also liked it when Dani didn't understand, and some parts she'd say it sounds like a compliment or just plain I don't know what you are saying. I really enjoy this book. This author I like. I've already preordered the next.

I thought some parts of the book were humorous. I did feel there was an excessive amount of the French language in the book and there wasn’t any translation for it, which was disappointing. I found it more bothersome than enjoyable because every time I got a good momentum, a French phrase or three would be thrown in and it would completely take me out of the moment. Also, I didn’t like the hero, at all. He’s a billionaire narcissist playboy and he never redeemed himself in my eyes. This is my first read from the author and while I didn’t completely enjoy the read, I would definitely recommend it to readers who I think would enjoy it. ***I was gifted an eBook copy from the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.

Marcel Mercier is far from the perfect hero. He's a womanizer, self-centered and a pampered rich-boy who is used to always getting his way. Before meeting Dani, he thought it would be a piece of cake to seduce her out of her job and off of his boat, saving his company from a PR nightmare. What he hadn't counted on was a woman who couldn't care less about his bank account and whose resistance didn't melt at the sound of his French accent. I'm so glad that the author chose to make the heroine the Captain, as it's not something you usually come across in Romance novels. Nor do you usually find a glimpse into female employment and treatment in male dominated fields and the prejudices women in positions of power often face. I loved that Dani was such a strong woman, who knew what mattered most to her and was willing to put her career and her reputation on the line to stand up for it and protect the ship's future. As a couple, these two throw off lots of sparks. They start off on opposing sides of the battlefield, Dani trying to prove her worth and keep her position as Captain, and Marcel trying to make it to Boston by his deadline while seducing Dani out of her ship. Somehow along the way, they grow to love each other more than they care about getting their own way. The highlight of this book for me is definitely Marcel's bilingually dirty mouth. It's just fantastic and keeps a vein of heat running throughout the entire novel. The man can make you melt in French and English and some of things he says...damn! Once the seduction begins, you just can't wait for these two to finally get together and all of that push and pull leading up to it just makes the wait all that much better. Marcel's tender side also comes out throughout the book and you know that what he's feeling for Dani is much more than mere lust. So, if you're looking for a determined, head-strong heroine and a book boyfriend who makes being bad sound so good. pick up Kiss Me, Captain by Gwen Jones.
