The Wildest Shore

( 3 )

Overview

Teasing the female passengers about the perils of the open sea was great fun, but once Horatio Merivale opened his mouth to laugh at danger, he wished he'd kept it shut. A storm dragged the Coventry under, and it was all the East India Company officer could do to rescue a terrified blonde from the merchantman's foundering hulk. Still, the girl brought out the best in him, and the whole escapade seemed the start of a marvelous adventure.

Overview

Teasing the female passengers about the perils of the open sea was great fun, but once Horatio Merivale opened his mouth to laugh at danger, he wished he'd kept it shut. A storm dragged the Coventry under, and it was all the East India Company officer could do to rescue a terrified blonde from the merchantman's foundering hulk. Still, the girl brought out the best in him, and the whole escapade seemed the start of a marvelous adventure.

Though she was but a simple lady's maid, the recurring dream luring Anne Hazlett from England was grand -- a turquoise seascape with a jade-carved island whose beaches beckoned. Yet she hadn't expected to arrive on flotsam, be accosted by pirates, or have such an odd entourage. Indeed, the man who'd saved her was thrilled by their bad luck! "The Hand of Destiny" he called it. And looking into her eyes, the grinning Horatio made a promise: The current that swept them forward was irresistible, but he would see Anne to... The Wildest Shore.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
In the England of 1811, it's perfectly sensible for a gardener's daughter to accept a post as lady's maid. Indeed, it's a great opportunity for a respectable upper servant's position. But Anne Hazlett's reasons for accepting the post have little to do with either sense or propriety. All her life, Anne has been haunted by a dream of a tropical island: a place with white sands and green palms, where she is queen. When her mistress sets sail to India, Anne is eager to accompany her, hoping for the chance to see exotic places like the island of her dreams. When the ship sinks, Anne is abandoned by her mistress, rescued by the handsome, ne'er-do-well Lt. Horatio Merivale, then picked up by pirates along with a handful of other survivors. Amid such a whirlwind, Anne finds little time to think of her dream. Little does she know, but destiny is finally sweeping her toward her island -- and making sure the queen-to-be will have her king. Events in The Wildest Shore are all a little larger than life: full of adventure, swashbuckling, and feats of daring, in a story where love can make even the wildest dreams come true.

    A winner!

    The story began in 1811, aboard the ship 'Coventry' in the Indian Ocean. Anne Hazlett was the lady's maid to Miss Pamela Godwyn. A storm caused the ship to sink. Pamela and her brother left Anne to die. Instead, Anne was rescued by Horatio Merivale, one of the crew. The only other survivors they located was Kai (the young, Chinese cabin boy) and two other crewmen named Ulrich and Ruut. They killed time on their make-shift raft by sharing tales. Anne told of the same dream she had every night of her life. She ruled a small island full of natives. All the survivors were amused by the dream, as well as, of the red kingfisher bird that she often saw and seemed to be guiding her. Ruut said it to be part of The Hand Of Destiny'. <BR><BR> They drifted a long time before being picked up by the famous French privateer, Philippe Chartier. Chartier was quite mad. He had Horatio put in chains. Anne he believed to be a Queen (having heard rumors from her fellow survivors) and treated her as such. Even his monkey, Mango, loved her! The others became part of the ship's crew. Thanks to Anne, they take over the ship, casting the original crew out in longboats. With nothing better to do, they all decide to follow Anne and her kingfisher, to see what may happen. The insane privateer hunted them during it all. <BR><BR> ***** The author spent three weeks in Borneo researching for this story, staying in the jungle with the descendants of headhunters and traveling by longboat up the shallow rivers. Therefore, she was able to make this book come alive! As with her previous book, <I>The Mermaid Of Penperro</I>, the characters each had their own personality and were easy for me to care for. <I><B>Full of adventure, romance, and a touch of humor, this story is a winner!</I></B> ***** </p><BR> Reviewed by Detra Fitch

    A WINNER!!!!

    I am a big fan of Lisa Cach, and I have to say that this is her best book so far. It has a great plot, and is packed with adventure, humor, and of course, love. I'm glad that everything was smooth sailing for the characters and I now await Ms. Cach's next book.

    One sitting thriller

    In 1811 during a sea voyage, Horatio Merivale takes immense pleasure flirting with the women passengers of the Coventry and scaring them with tales of peril. Most of the females enjoy his attention including Miss Pamela Godwyn, but her lady¿s maid Anne Hazlett finds the East India Company officer boring. However, to his chagrin, Horatio¿s prediction proves accurate as a nasty storm wrecks the Coventry. <P>The survivors including Anne and Horatio struggle at sea to live, but soon pirates capture them. Though they escape and their adventures pile up, Horatio and Anne fall in love. However, Anne knows that as a lady¿s maid she is beneath Horatio¿s station and once they return to civilization her love and her memories will be all she has left to ease her heart¿s pain. <P>THE WILDEST SHORE reads more like a nineteenth century Perils of Pauline than a Regency romance as the story line is loaded with action that never slows down for a page. The lead characters are a passionate duo especially Horatio who allows his beloved the independence to grow and thrive on her adventure. This makes for a fun read though the audience will question the safety of such a position. Lisa Cach caters to her audience with a thriller that requires commensurate time for a one-sitting read. <P>Harriet Klausner
