FINAL DECISION: This book suffers from the middle book syndrome. If a reader hasn't read the first book in the series then it will feel incomplete and it needs the third book in the series to complete the story. As a family saga, I enjoyed the characters and the sweeping story. I ended up liking the first book in the story better after reading this and liked this book better after reading the third.

THE STORY: The Dominick family saga began with the story of Sabrina and Lucien. Now seventeen years later their past has come back to haunt them as an old enemy ends up orchestrating the kidnapping of their oldest daughter Lady Rhea. Rhea is sent as an indentured servant to the Americas. There she ends up meeting Captain Dante Leighton, lord turned privateer. Dante doesn't believe Rhea's story of kidnapping and instead believes she might be acting as a spy for those who want the treasure he and his crew are seeking.

OPINION: I ended up liking this book even more than the first book in the Trilogy. I really ended up liking the saga and epic feel of this book. It is not a standard romance where the hero and heroine meet and the spend the book working out their romance. Instead the book chronicles how the lives of these two end up intersecting. The book feels like a transition between the first book and the third and I recommend reading all three to get the best sense of this family. I liked the romance between Dante and Rhea although it was more abbreviated than I expected. There is still more to their romance as the third book works itself out. Rather than thinking of this series as three separate books, readers would be better served by thinking of them as three parts of the whole.

WORTH MENTIONING: This book is more epic than mere romance.

I enjoy Laurie McBain's books and this one is no exception. WOW! Laurie builds her characters and places historical glimpses in their surroundings. She researches thoroughly and it shows! In this book, Dante is the captain of the Sea Dragon. He and his crew are looking for treasure in the Caribbean. Dante is also a Marquis (but doesn't flaunt it until he has to). Rhea is a Dominick in England. Her father is a Duke and has a sworn enemy from long ago. Rhea finds herself indentured, crosses the Atlantic, then is chased onto Dante's ship - the Sea Dragon. The story is about the perils of the time and the finding of love across the Atlantic. This story kept my attention from beginning to end. This is a great book!

Lud, this book gave me heart palpitations and anxiety. It's truly one of those old-school romances that I love so much. They just don't write books like this anymore, so I am happy to see some of them being re-released (without being turned into the fluff reads that most historicals are today).

I was chatting with someone recently who compared these books to the current trend of "dark romance." I agreed with her somewhat, the historical romances written in the 60s-80s did often have darker events happen. Many of them were classified as bodice rippers for that very reason. However the dark aspects of those stories are not what really draws me in... it's the action and adventure and the feeling that you have just read a sweeping saga by the end of one little book. You have these characters that you love and they are experiencing tragedy and betrayal and love and I get caught up in the moment with them. Hence, the heart palpitations and anxiety. I would love to see more authors today produce books in this style... but I'm sure they would get bashed by all the modern feminists much as has happened to E.L. James and even Diana Gabaldon. I cringe every time I see someone complain about that spanking scene. (I mean why should they give a fig about historical accuracy, right?) Ack, I need to get off my soapbox and get on with the review.

Our heroine in this installment of the Dominick Series is Lady Rhea Claire, eldest daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Camerleigh from the first book, Moonstruck Madness. Everyone loves Rhea Claire (myself included) as she is truly a kind soul who could win over even the most unlikely individuals.

Rhea is kidnapped from her home by old enemies of the Duke.

I am sorry I love her books but this one is an exception, the hero and heroine don't even meet until over half way thru the book and develop a loose relationship the last 20 percent of the book, how did they fall in the last 20% of the book. I would not recommend this book as a romance or read it again.

Old quarrels and revenge reach out after years and strike at Lucien Dominick's family.
The focus of these attempts is his daughter Lady Rhea Claire, sold as an indentured servant and incarcerated in the bowels of a ship bound for Charles Town.
Rhea, a breath of golden jessamine, manages to escape but in the hue and cry of the chase hides out in a dangerous place--the cabin of privateer Dante Leighton, Marquis of Jacqobi and captain of the Sea Dragon.
Dante might be sceptical that this isn't some complex ruse but everyone from the cabin boy to the first mate, including the turncoat cat Jamaica are won over by Rhea.
Of course the sparks fly between the two, those of temper and those of attraction.
However Dante will not be gulled and Rhea will not be deterred from charting her course for home.
An enthralling story that stretches across oceans, colourful in its telling and beguiling in its imagery.
Multilayered and guaranteed to captivate!
