Alexander is wonderful. He's the kind of man I'd love to be shipwrecked with! Smart, funny (in his own way), competent,..... He has a lot of great characteristics. He can also be exasperating, but I'd like the chance to change that in him! I got the impression of a very handsome man. And one with a lot of passion in him - both for his work and for a woman.
Daphne is, at one point in the book, described as "china-headed, stuffed with sawdust...." This is a gracious description of her. I'd add in "annoying, irritating and an insult to anyone's intelligence." This isn't a female who's just been pampered and is a bit clueless about life outside her usual world. I began to get the impression that she was, rather, actually mentally deficient and.....not all mentally there. Had she actually been mentally impared, it wouldn't be a problem. It could be a beautiful romance between the two. However, I don't think that's what the author was going for in her, so she turned out to be irritating instead. Her puppy dogs and unicorns in his medical journal were not something that a normal woman would have done. Her constant humming at inappropriate times was obnoxious. And the fact that she couldn't comprehend why it was vital that the pirates think of her as "Mrs. Murray" for her own safety was, frankly, scary. There were points in the book that I almost wanted to stop reading, because I was so beginning to hate her and her stupidity. I kept thinking that she'd redeem herself in the end, but she never did; I finished the book not liking her just as much as I did in the beginning.
As other reviewers said, the "rogering" in this one was quite nice. ;) That, alone, did raise my review up from where it was after dealing with Daphne. Again, how can I be shipwrecked with an Alexander?!
I think I'd recommend this book. But I'd also caution the reader that they are going to have to grit their teeth quite a bit when reading the things that Daphne does and says. If you can look beyond her to the rest of the story - and focus on our very dreamy hero - you'll enjoy the book better.
When they become stranded together though, they learn to depend on each other and see beneath the surface. Alexander teaches Daphne to take care of herself and she delights in becoming a more useful person. Daphne in return teaches Alexander to smile and accept love into his life.
Wonderfully written. Although it had plenty of elements of farce, I didn't notice any glaring anachronisms or missteps with the historical research.
Really fun and I recommend it and am looking forward to reading other books by this author.

I really liked this story. It kept me interested all the way through. There was some LOL moments, moments where I shed a tear or two and also some good action. I loved that there was a lot of movement in this book. Also the fact that the H&h were very honest with each other.
The characters were very original and I really liked both the H&h and lets not forget the whittle puppy wuppy POM-POM.
The H&h had plenty of time to get to know each other before they finally hit the sheets. The love scenes where tastefully done but of course I wish there would have been more, hahahahaha.
The ending was very pleasing with the Hero doing something out of his comfort zone to save the woman he loves, It was very sigh worthy.
This is the third book by Darlene Marshall I've read and truly enjoyed. You know I'll be buying more as they are released
