Historical romance, Regency era
Alexander Murray knows one cannot exist without a brain, yet Daphne Farnham may be the exception. Her head contains nothing but rainbows, shoes, bonnets, pink frills and butterflies. Even her fluffy dog is useless. But the war with Napoleon is finally over and the surgeon is sure he can put up with a couple of months of the cloth-headed chit until they reach England.
Did that naval officer have his sense of humor surgically removed? It is bad enough Alexander Murray has no fashion sensibilities at all, never smiles at her like other men do, and doesn’t adore her darling pup Pompom. He had the gall to proclaim her “useless” when everyone knows it’s Daphne Farnham who’s the best at picking out just the right ensemble for any social occasion. Fortunately, she only has to put up with the sour Scotsman until they reach England.
But when their ship goes down, the dour doctor (after a fashion), the dizzy damsel (more or less) and the darling (and potentially delicious) doggy are about to embark on the adventure of a lifetime as unlikely companions, castaway on a desert island. One of them may have fleas, but it’s the two humans who will find themselves wanting to scratch a certain itch.

Really enjoyed this book! Loved the build up of the relationship, the adventure and the romance! Appreciate that the romance was not rushed. I want to know what happens to Captain St Armand, the gentleman-pirate! Great book to take on vacation!
I don't usually read romance novels but I do love survival books so the whole shipwrecked aspect got me to read it. The author uses humor really well and the sex isn't the gross type. I will read another of the authors books to see if a different plot will keep my attention.
