Deirdre is an American at sea, a merchantmen hauling cargo from port to port with her father and his all male crew. They are a family as far as Deirdre is concerned. So when they are attacked by a British privateer ship, they know they are out gunned and out manned and her father orders them to surrender. After raising the white flag, Daniel Mackenzie dies of a heart attack, leaving Deidre to face the privateer and his crew as the new captain of the clipper. She is dressed as a man, but Kieran Ashford discovers he is a she and insists she not be put with the prisoners in the hold, but to be guarded in her cabin.
Sparks fly between these two and the adventure begins. To preserve Deidre's reputation, Kieran offers to marry her and take her home to his family, as apposed to sending her to another family as a noncombatant during war. Reluctantly, she agrees knowing full well she will do all she can to set her fellow crew members free at the first opportunity. Will Deidre betray Kieran? Read and you shall see.
If you love clean historical romance, you will love this book. I recommend it to everyone. Enjoy!
Kieran sees the capture of The Maid as a way to prove to his father his worth. Not only that but he finds a bonus in the fact that Deirdre is a female in need of protection. To protect her best is to marry her. So we have a story of a marriage between an American and an Englishmen whose countries are at war. A time of spies, privateers, and cruel treatments for prisoners shows just how precarious this new married couple and the whole of the Ashford family and the times they lived in were.
Their loyalties and love were tested beyond what any thought possible and even well-kept family secrets come to light. I enjoyed watching this very inconvenient marriage grow and mature these two individuals into becoming the perfect match for each other.
Highly enjoyable and I cannot wait to read more by her. I purchased this book for my own reading pleasure.
She struggles with her feelings for Kieran and her strong loyalty to her father's crew. How can she rescue her crew in prison while not bringing down the Ashford name?
Kieran has been in many scandals and feels marriage to Deirdre would restore him back to his family/society.
Well paced and Clean Regency romance(no explicit scenes)
Lovely book cover and a great new series!
