The first book by this Author that I have read but if this story is what the rest of her books are like I want to read more of them. A second chance romance for Ivy Mallory and Captain Marcus Thornhill there is suspense, drama, danger, treason. A book I would recommend.

Rescued by the Captain by Laura A. Barnes is the first book in her new series, Romancing the Spies Series, and what a great kick off. Following the story of Thorn and Ivy, this story is one that will take you back to a time when there were pirates, seasons and scandal for all young ladies who fall for the bad man of the seas. Ivy is a beautiful, young and stubborn girl who draws the eye of many men around town but she only has eye for the captain, Marcus Thornhill, known to his friends and female companions, Thorn. There is something about her that draws him in, but his duties to the Crown pull him away before he can get too close to her. Months go by and with no word from Thorn about his feelings toward her, Ivy goes back out on Season in an attempt to forget him. When she is caught up in bad deals that surround her brother she will have to turn to the man that took her heart with him out to sea. Her love for her brother makes her willing to risk anything, even if he means getting close again to Thorn. When Thorn finds Ivy aboard his ship, he falls for her all over again. Walking away the first time wasn’t easy, but his duty to the crown propelled him forward. Walking away a second time isn’t an option for him. Making Ivy see that they are meant to be together is his main focus now, and Thorn is a very focused man when he sees something that he wants. There are several moving parts in this story, from treason, lies, threats to the crown and so much more that surround this love story. Getting to see the inside of Marcus and Ivy’s story as well as a trip into history really made this a great book to read. Several characters are introduced in this one who will be starring in other books so it is good to read this series in order. Barnes is a new to me author, but based on this book alone I can’t wait to see where she takes this series. If you are looking for a great historical romance than this is the series and author for you!

I give Rescued By the Captain by Laura A. Barnes, 4 stars. Captain Marcus Thornhill finds a woman virtually dead floating in a raft near his ship. When he does the right thing and rescues her, he has no idea just how much his life will change. He decides this is the chance he has been waiting for and will never let her go. Ivy Mallory wakes up on a strange ship, having no idea just whose ship she is on. When she finally does find out, she cannot believe her bad luck! This is the man who ran away from her years ago. She wants nothing to do with him, he has already broken her heart once. But the more she has to deal with him, the more the walls around her heart break. Should she give in? Can her heart afford it? This book harkens back to the romances of old -- hunky ship captain, damsel in distress, set back in time. But it is written so well and so much going on within the story, that you will love it no matter what kind of romance you generally like. The characters themselves are fun and engaging, making it so much better. Besides the possible romance to the main characters, there is also action going on throughout the whole book to make it even more entertaining. The author has done such a wonderful job with this book, I cannot wait to read the next book in the series! For lovers of traditional romance, this book is definitely for you. In fact, I recommend this to all of those who like romance.

Rescued By the Captain (Romancing the Spies #1) by Laura A. Barnes was a steamy, romantic, up down, rollercoaster that had me wanting to smack both MC's up side the head. My first read by this author and I didn't know what I was getting into. I do have some mix feelings about this book, but at the same time, I oddly enjoyed ev-er-y-th-ing... Okay lets start with what I had mix feels about. It was all the surgery sweet love confessions. Holy hell I don't think I've ever read a book with so many heart felt, cavity inducing love confessions in my life. It wasn't just that, after a few pages, of even a few paragraphs later, something simple came a lone and then they doubt it their "love".....That got old really fast. And made me what to slap a b#$%@. Other then that, I did have some issues with pacing and filler, but like I sad, I oddly enjoyed it.. I guess it has to do with the fact I have a weird weakness for cheesy, smutty romance. Ivy was a frustrating character, I mean, she was the type that didn't know when to sit and be safe. "I don't need no man to save me"... Okay for one... you did and two.... why the hell are you putting yourself in epic danger when you are defenceless? Other then that, I did like her. Once she got over herself and started acting like the adult, she developed into a well rounded fierce character. Marcus...... Other then being hot and sulkily, and brewing over Ivy... I got nothing. I mean he's a good character, but he was pretty generic.. but again.. I oddly loved it. Overall this was a pretty great read, it's you're classic romance on the high seas, with a dainty damsel in distress, sword fights, cheesy love confessions and a pillaging, treasonous pirate. I give this book my high recommendation and my stamp of approval. Happy Reading -E.A. Walsh

A swashbuckling sea captain, a lady from his past, unconscious and adrift in a lifeboat, and treason against the crown, Captain Marcus Thornhill’s life was about to become part of a deadly game where both his heart and his life could be forfeit. Marcus left the woman he loved behind after breaking her heart and now she is back, half-alive and on a mission to help her brother, an agent for the queen caught when an undercover mission goes wrong. Ivy is determined to find her brother and save him, unaware of who he is and she needs Marcus’ help. Neither has ever forgotten the other and this is Marcus’ chance to let Ivy know how he has always felt, but his best friend is missing and he may be the only person who knows where is can be found, if he is still alive. Ivy is so tempting, can he resist the innocent charms of this fiery and headstrong woman? She is not the young girl he once knew, and he knows he cannot walk away again, especially if he tastes the pleasures of her charms. RESCUED BY THE CAPTAIN by Laura A. Barnes brings steam and passion to the high seas, as well as intrigue and the constant need for Marcus to attempt to keep Ivy safe, from others, as well as herself. Even as their passions flare, they seem to lack the ability to actually communicate their feelings for each other. A quick read, filled with constant sexual tension and a seemingly impossible quest, but I just never connected with all of the characters and found their verbal interaction to become a bit tedious, but one must remember, this is historical fiction and plain, open talk was certainly not the norm!
