Overview

Eight years ago, when he had nothing but his future to offer, Frederick Wentworth fell in love with Anne Elliot, the gentle daughter of a haughty, supercilious baronet. Sir Walter Elliot refused to countenance a marriage, and Anne's godmother, Lady Russell, strongly advised Anne against him. Persuaded by those nearest to her, Anne had given him up and he had taken his broken heart to sea.

When Jane Austen's Persuasion opens in the year 1814, Frederick Wentworth, now a famous and wealthy captain in His Majesty's Navy, finds himself back in England and, as fate would have it, residing as a guest in Anne's former home. Now, it is the baronet who is in financial difficulties, and Anne exists only at her family's beck and call. For eight long years, Frederick had steeled his heart against her. Should he allow Anne into his heart again, or should he look for love with younger, prettier woman in the neighbourhood who regard him as a hero?

The mature sweetness of Jane Austen's Persuasion is brought to life in Wytherngate Press's, None But You ., the first in the two-volume series, Frederick Wentworth, Captain, by Susan Kaye.

Because of this book, Captain Frederick Wentworth has become my favorite Austen hero (moving Mr. Darcy to #2.) Ms. Kaye brought F.W. to life in a believable way, keeping him consistent with Austen's creation. I could not put the book down and am reading it again while I wait for vol. 2. Please hurry Ms. Kaye!

Persuasion is my favorite Jane Austen, so I naturally looked forward to the publishing of this book. Simply said, it's WONDERFUL!!!! Kaye greatly enriches the marvelous character of Captain Wentworth, and also gives an intriguing perspective to the other players, especially Louisa Musgrove. Please, Ms. Kaye, hurry with Volume II. !!!!!

Okay! I was expecting more. Although it was well written, it was exactly like reading Persuasion. The only difference was it was from Captain Wentworth point of view. There were subtle differences from his view but not much. I love Captain Wentworth and Anne but it needed more excitment. I judge a story if it brings out all sort of emotions; sadness, laugher, to name a few. The only thing I noticed was how Lousia was really trying get the Captain but even her accident was dull. I would not read this book.again, sorry. I bought both books and ebooks and I will keep the books because I collect them but a good story about this famous couple is "Captain Wentworth's Perusasion.

I am a Jane Austin lover, and was so happy to find other authors that have give fresh perspectives on some of the Austin Classics. In Frederick Wentworth, Captain None But You, you get to see the first part of the beautiful love story of Anne Elliot and Captain Wentworth. How they found each other, how they lost each other and what happened in Captain Wentworth's life until meeting her again 8 1/2 years later. Written from the Captain's perspective, it shows the struggles that he goes through as he tries to deny his feeling for Anne after all of these years. This is book one of a two book set by Susan Kaye and a must have for anyone that loves Austin, Persuasion, and beautiful loves stories.

Only You is a rewrite of Persuasion but from Captain Wentworth's perspective. I couldn't put this down. Very well written and an easier read than Austen. I love books that let me get into the character's head. This is the first of two books. It has all the makings of a classic. Enjoy!!

An imaginative back-story to Jane Austen¿s Captain Wentworth. Quite above the level of most 'Fan Fiction' (see my other recommendations for what I believe to be the very high standard to be met). Ms Kaye maintains the tenor and tone of the period and creates an entirely credible portrait of the man Anne Elliot loved. She puts very believable flesh on the bones of the captain and enhances my appreciation of the original story. I look forward to book two.

This is a good book if you enjoyed Persuasion. Kaye did a great job not changing the story too much, and still adding her personality. A good read
