Ms. MacMillan spins a lovey story of romance and suspense with history thrown in. Romance along with Pirates makes for a great romance in my book. This was a great romance. After her father was murdered Emma Smith (Prescott), finds that she is in the clutches of an unscrupulous squire who wants her for his bride. Taking the necklace that he promised her she escapes into the night right into the arms of Captain Morgan Reynolds. Morgan thinking she is just some ones mistress decides to help her out at least for the evening. Over the course of the evening Emma asks for his help in getting to London safely so that she can than find passage to the Caribbean and to her brother. He agrees. She takes a stone from the necklace in payment. Upon arriving in London Morgan receives a letter from his betrothed stating she has married someone else. So he strikes a deal with Emma, she poses as his wife and he in return will get her to where she wants to go. She agrees. Off they sail only for the attraction and chemistry to kick in. Emma falls in love with Morgan fast, all the time knowing that he will never really love her as he is still in love with his ex. Over time Emma wins over Morgan’s sister and the people of his island. She starts teaching while he is out to sea. Their relationship is not an easy one but who’s really is. She is pursued by the Squire’s son, and Morgan finds he is jealous of the relationship. In the meantime his ex comes back into the picture as she is the daughter of his partner. This makes for an interesting little twist in the story. As you read the story you can’t help but get pulled into their lives. You want to see things work out but know deep down that for them to come together they have to leave the past. As Emma stays and teaches the children of the village she forges a strong relationship with Morgan’s sister who happens to be a hard one to win over. She also endears herself to Morgan’s partner and father of her ex. I don’t want to tell the end of the story but this is a wonderful suspense filled romance. I would love to have seemed the two of them in conflict a little more maybe on the sea. I think Emma would have been a little bit of fun to have on the ship more. Maybe next time? I loved Ms. MacMillan story of love and piracy and can’t wait to read her next one.
