Home is the sailor, home from the sea…

Five years after he’s lost off the coast of South America, presumed dead, Captain Robert Nash escapes cruel captivity, and returns to London and the bride he loves, but barely knows. When he stumbles back into the family home, he’s appalled to find himself gate-crashing the party celebrating his wife’s engagement to another man.

No red-blooded naval officer takes a challenge like this lying down; but five years is a long time, and beautiful, passionate Morwenna has clearly found a life without him. Can he win back the wife who gave him a reason to survive his ordeal? Or will the woman who haunts his every thought remain eternally out of reach?

Love lost and found? Or love lost forever?

Since hearing of her beloved husband’s death, Morwenna Nash has been mired in grief. After five grim years without him, she must summon every ounce of courage and determination to become a Dashing Widow and rejoin the social whirl. But she owes it to her young daughter to break free of old sorrow and find a new purpose in life, even if that means accepting a loveless marriage.

It’s like a miracle when Robert returns from the grave, and despite the awkward circumstances of his arrival, she’s overjoyed that her husband has come back to her at last. But after years of suffering, he’s not the handsome, laughing charmer she remembers. Instead he’s a grim shadow of his former dashing self. He can’t hide how much he still wants her—but does passion equal love?

Can Morwenna and Robert bridge the chasm of absence, suffering and mistrust, and find the way back to each other?

This is not a cliffhanger. Anna Campbell wrote an interesting story but she wasted the opportunity to write a significant story to write a tale within 138 pages. Her book became a vessel to describe the sexual life of British peers. Anna Campbell maxed out thenumber of pages used to explain the sex acts between the two characters to still have a story. The epilogue gave the book redemption in that it explained how Robert and Mowena found their way through the mire of their mucked up lives. Recommended for adult readers wanting a quick read.

The premise of the story is fine. The characters are fine. The language was sometimes too modern for the period in which the story was set which was a little annoying. It is the shallow telling of the story that is not so good. Too much focus on the main characters having sex and not enough words devoted to developing depth to the relationships and emotions of the characters. It was unsatisfying to me that the relationships between all of the characters was not more fully developed. This book is part of a series of books. There are many supporting characters who are briefly mentioned but they are purely peripheral in this book. Apparently each has a story told in other books in the series. That makes this book barely stand alone and it may have helped had I known to read all of the others first. Then again, if they are all so shallow, it might not be worth the effort.

I know reading some of the reviews people didn't seem to like the book. But I thought it was such heartwarming short story. From the beginning you feel the deep emotions of loss and the excitement of having her husband alive after so many years. I loved the book.

Though this had only earned 3 stars, I decided to chance reading it. I am very thankful I did. I loved the whole book! The story line was full of deep hidden emotions on the part of Captain Nash, and his wife was able to find the best way to draw him out. I thoroughly enjoyed it! It was well written and did use old world terms, which one review said it had not. It was a story full of love.

Tge storyline grips you from beginning to end. The appearance of Robert, just as the annoncement begins about Morwenna becoming engaged to another! Robert, his ordeal of being held captive for 5 years...The tears, of two loves separated from each other and how they work through their loss to become "as one" again. Great story. The cast of characters are awesome. Wonderful storyline. Happy Reading! ******vrnb*****

Catching Captain Nash is number 6 in the Dashing Widows series by Anna Campbell. This series originally was of three young widows just out of mourning who decide to have some fun... fortunately for those of us who have loved this series, Anna Campbell decided to continue on with three more widows and a jilted suitor from one of the previous books. Captain Robert Nash was assumed dead after being lost at sea. For five long years his family mourned his loss. So when he walks into his brother’s house on the eve of his wife’s engagement party to another man, everyone is stunned but thrilled…. Morwenna Nash mourned the loss of her beloved husband for five long years. She was more than content to raise her daughter and live on her memories. Her friends convince her to reenter society and she finally starts to take steps to move on with her life. Although she agrees to accept Hugh Rutherford, Lord Garson’s proposal it was made clear to him she stilled loved her husband…. I absolutely loved Robert and Morwenna! Their story ranks up there at the top of one of my favorites of Anna Campbell. Robert and Morwenna had a happy but short marriage. When Robert returns on the eve of Morwenna’s engagement to another man, she is literally in shock and the tension between them is evident. I loved how Anna didn’t allow that tension to create a barrier between them. Instead Robert relied on Morwenna to adjust back to a life that he has been absent from for so long. Their reunion and the steps to find their way back to each other and to a HEA were a very emotionally charged and beautifully written story! I highly recommend this series and Catching Captain Nash goes on my to reread pile for the future!

Skipped around but still boring although the story line was good. If i grieved for my husband for 5years and then he showed up looking sickly and holding on to his composure, i wouldnt just stand there like a ninny.

This author needs to do some research on times this book IS supposed to be based on. This is not period specific. It is nothing but brain chatter and dialogue. The mannerisms and dialogue are as if it was written by an for a youngster. Even the sex scenes are not titillating. After reading approximately 60 pages; I call it quits. Free or otherwise, this is a waste of my time.

This was a enjoyable read. A quiet love story. There were no villains or deep plots filled with mystery. However, it still captured your heart. It’s a Love Story in the truest since of the word. Loved it.

I really enjoyed this book by Anna Campbell. She touched on many of the trials and emotions that would torment a man and affect his family after being imprisoned and tortured for 5 years. It's the first book I've read of this author and it won't be the last. Very well written, now I definitely have to read the rest in the Dashing Widows series!

This had many elements of a regency novel, but seemed to be lacking in conflict... Yet my biggest complaint is: its too short
