In this fun, fast-paced romantic adventure from the author of the bestselling, critically-acclaimed de Montforte Brothers Series, excitement heralds the arrival of Captain Brendan Jay Merrick, a dashing privateer whose daring sea battles against His Majesty's fleet have made him a legend in colonial New England. Brendan has plans for the Ashton Shipyard to build his magnificent new schooner. But one look at the handsome Irishman, and Ashton's daughter Mira is making plans of her own ...

So far my favorite of Danelle's heroines! Spunky, impish and just plain amusing! Cap't Brendan wasn't so bad himself. I loved the sneakiness & the loudness of the Ashtons. As annoying as they may be to neighbors & unsuspecting Irish sea captains it also was hilarious. The story is not only an amusing ride but an emotional one! I kinda read it outa order but it still rocked!

Be ready for an adventure filled story with this one. This is more than a romance because you really get to know about the ships and battles that bring them together time after time. Their relationship is full of ups and downs that keep you guessing and hoping for them. I loved how they were together on and off the ship because they truly balanced each other out and were made for each other. I held my breath when everything happened with her brother and then again with the last battle. The ending was perfect and I loved the story of her brother and his sister. Mira always gets what she wants and you don’t want to mess with a temper. She really matured and changed over the course of the book. She went from a childlike loose cannon to a more understanding woman that still could be a loose cannon. I loved her as the story continued and her skills on a ship were amazing. Brendan is a cool-tempered skilled captain that definitely has the luck of the Irish on his side. Nothing was going to stop him from winning his four-year battle. I could just picture him when he started talking and when he realized who was on his ship. He was just amazing in everything and loved his sister. This cover was burned into my mind everytime he talked.

Not my favorite, a bit too drawn out for me. A lot of description of everything. Story line was good.

Captain Of My Heart by Danelle Harmon is an extraordinary historical romance. Ms. Harmon has given us a book that is not only well-written but is packed with phenomenal characters. Brendan is a Flag Captain for the King's Navy, he's shot by a jealous captain of another ship and falls overboard. He resurfaces after a time as a privateer captain...working with America. Mira runs a horsemanship school, when she's not sneaking away on her brother's ship. Their story is action-packed and loaded with drama, humor and sizzle. This is a serious historical romance but the actions and antics of Mira turn it into a totally fun book to read. I enjoyed this book from start to finish and look forward to reading more from Danelle Harmon in the future. Captain Of My Heart is book 2 of the Heroes of the Sea Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I rarely give 5 stars but I feel like this story had everything. I typically stay away from historical books because of how slow and boring they are, but I'm glad I took a chance on this one. If the book is accurate to the late 1770's then I learned a lot about boats, which I found fascinating. But the one thing I loved most was that it was funny and the Ashton family is outrageous. There were all kinds of emotions throughout the book and a lot of action scenes. I was engaged the entire story and I didn't want it to end. Will look for another story like this one from this author!
