I thought her storyline was developed enough and she was not a total juvenile writer, but I found myself skimming alot of "blah blah blah" passages. She wrote phrases such as "he just didn't know what he would do wthout her" or, "he was so angry with his mother he couldn't stand it". A few times someone is saying something about not needing money or wealth to be happy; as if author is reiterating it. The talent of a writer, I believe, is to tell the story, leave the preaching out of it, and let the reader infer any subtle messages presented.
The hero, Richerd, and the heroine, Kyra, are not believable. The hero served as a captain in the British army during the Revolutionary war, but can't seem to control his temper. The night his mother has his fiance, Kyra, thrown in jail, he is supposedly furious, yet accepts a (drugged) mug of hot cocoa from her. Later, while aboard a pirate ship, his friends need train him to fight. True, he had to learn to use his other hand because his right one was injured, but the philosophy of combat is universal. It seemed he didn't know anything about fighting.
Kyra, on the other hand was employed as domestic help in England, but when she reaches America, she thinks she has no skills with which to support herself. She pays for 2 months room and board, but instead of then looking for work afterwards, she visits the dock every day, hoping Richerd will come for her. She makes too many poor choices to be a likeable heroine. Do something strong, lady!
Moreover, the story doesn't compliment the traditions of 1770's. Being a wealthy Lord in England, Richard doesn't act like one. He does not see to his lordly duties when leaving his estate, he lets his mother walk all over him, and frequently went unchaparoned with Kyra. Any gentleman would've had a girl's reputation utmost in his mind. He had a"who cares" attitude which seems fun enough, but not to the point of being stupid.
I won't be wasting anymore time reading books by Anita Stansfield.
Wealthy Ritcherd has been in love with peasant girl Kyrah his entire life but nobody wants them to get together; such as Ritcherd's evil mother who arranges to have Kyrah kidnapped from England and sent to the Caribbean. What Ritcherd doesn't realize before that cruel separation is that he and Kyrah's "roll in the hay" resulted in heartbreaking consequences for Kyrah.
Appropriate for all readers, there is no swearing or graphic scenes, even the lovemaking scene between the two main characters is confined to the barest of description, "When the passion subsided and they realized what had happened..." blah blah. Meant to be a page-turner, readers are always one step ahead of the characters making it a chore just to finish.
This series is now out of print. Read this book and find out why.
The temper tantrums from the mother and son seemed a little much.
My favorite parts were the family time, in the beginning, with Kyrah's family and while Ritcherd is at sea. Favorite character would be Captain Garrett and his ability to describe the sea, be a discerning friend and teacher. I was intrigued by the crew of the ship and their prior occupations.
Didn't love the names of the main characters. Was saddened to see that the author took the story further than necessary in their physical relationship. I will take a less in a storyline to keep my mind clear off filth but I'm surprised this finds its description as Christian. It seems they have no clear faith. Swearing, sex, and then God help me? Disappointed. I felt like the author was trying to pacify everyone or maybe she has no definitions in her beliefs.
This was so intense and heartbreaking. I couldn't put it down until I finished. I sobbed for Kyrah as she found herself alone in a new world with no one to care for her. And I cheered for Ritcherd as he cast off his doubts and fears and went after her. Best love story ever!
