Format: Paperback
A clause in her father's will, and her uncle's determination to enforce it, force the heroine, Edwinna Crawford, to literally pluck a stranger who's been accused of piracy from his execution, and marry him. Edwinna holds her Barbados sugar cane plantation in trust for her missing sailor brothers, and if she fails to marry by the age of 26, her wicked uncle will have the right to claim the place.

Luckily, Drake Steel, the man in question, is a decent sort; it turns out he was kidnapped by pirates during a sea voyage to Lisbon, and is in reality a respectable, widowed wine merchant. He's also young, a devoted family man, and oh, yes, quite handsome.

Unfortunately, Edwinna's hellish childhood (abandoned by her mother, abused by her father) has damaged her to such an extent that creating a relationship with Drake is something she's not capable of doing. I don't just mean a sexual relationship, though (this being a romance novel) that is a part of it -- Edwinna is like a feral cat, a woman who's had basically no love or caring companionship in her life. She winces away from being touched, physically and emotionally.

I thought the author did a wonderful job with the character of Edwinna, showing her gradual, well-paced softening toward Drake; the slow-growing trust that finally allows her to open up to him. Drake is at his best as a "hero" when he finally gets over his resentment at being forced to wed Edwinna in order to save his life, and his resentment at being forced to live on Barbados for a year thereafter. When he's interacting with Edwinna, encouraging her to let go of her demons, he's a wonderful hero. I have to admit I like Drake much less later on in the story, when an unexpected twist of fate voluntarily separates him from Edwinna.

I have mixed feelings about this book.
Story Brief: Based in Barbados with beautiful scenery. A woman of 26 entered into MOC with the widower with 2 children who is still in love with his dead wife. He is a wine merchant assumed to be a pirate and was sentenced to death by drowning. She saved him and married him to save her plantation. She has some psychological issues. Hero won her over slowly. And then unexpected events torn them apart before the HEA.
My thoughts and Spoilers!!!!
Usually H who thinks he loves someone else are my kind of guys:) Nothing is sweeter when they realized their mistakes and eat their words. But,in this book, I don't like how H thinks he still loves the wife even after he learns of her true nature. That's too much. I don't care how H feels about the wife before her death or before he became intimate with the h. But, I hate how he thinks to himself that there is no one like Anne, or that only Anne exists and no one else, when he is with Anne in bed, AFTER his relationship with the h. (he wasn't thinking back on the past, which could be an illusion.) It gives me a bad taste in my mouth. The best thing said bout the h is that "she gives him peace", because they are compatible. That's not very romantic to me, with all this grand passion H feels for the ow, not the h. And then, without much explanation, it wasn't Anne he loves, it's Edwinna? I find it hard to believe, after all his joyful, all consuming reunion with Anne, undying love he thinks he feels even after the revelation of her rotten character. It would have been much better if the author explains how H felt unfulfilled after sleeping with Anne or that he woke up with dreams of Edwinna when in bed with Anne or something. Now, the h is like the second best, someone H chose with his brain, not his whole heart. Just my two cents.

All Jo Ann Wendts books have a good plot but are full of stress and strife throughout and the romance always leaves me cold. The hero it seems always loves someone else until the last few pages, which I sometimes find hard to grasp. 'Beyond the Savage' sea is no different. He loves his worthless dead wife, that later turns out to be not so dead but just as worthless and he flies into her arms with a raging love beating in his heart for her still! Turning his back on the woman that truly loves him. When a year or so later after showering his wife with love and gifts he finds that she is sleeping around on him, he then leaves her to set sail back to the woman that truly loves him and even on the ship to her, he is thinking of the love he still has for the faithless wife he has just left behind, the rat! And of-course the heroine runs to him with open arms. You think I am kidding, right! Nada!
My favorite book by Jo Ann wendt was 'The Golden Dove' but even in that one the hero is a faithless wastrel to the end. I really liked the heroine when she was a brave young child in the first half of the book and her experences made me cry. But when she became a woman, she was rather stupid and whiney. I don't know why I keep reading Jo Ann Wendt books, but I do.

I love this book. It has been read over and over again. When it was water damaged, I bought two more and put them in separate places so that I can never lose it again. Drake is easy to fall in love with, Edwinna is tougher, but when you do, she's such a special woman that you wonder how any other men could not have seen it. Very deep subject matter in some places adds to the richness of this read.
