This novel by Victoria Chatham is the right blend of mood and romance with a modern-thinking heroine who wrestles with the timeless problem of marriage and motherhood and her increasing desire for adventure. A most rewarding read!
Even before Juliana fully regains her health, the explicit sexual tension and encounters between the lady and the seafarer take place.
Apart from this tale of unashamed lust and love, there is plenty of conflict and drama to engage the reader, and it is obvious that the author has invested time in research. Added this are descriptions of sword fighting, the question of slavery and excellent scenes, which give a sense of place, such as the following one with its depiction of Port Royal.
“The dust from the sandy, dry street swirled around his (Drake’s) feet stirred up not only by his passage but by the bare-foot slaves, horses’ hooves and trundling carriage wheels. He ignored the cries of food vendors, side-stepped ladies discussing their purchases outside Nellam’s Store at the intersection of King Street and Harbour Street…etc.”
The novel is well-written but I found the speed at which Juliana and Drake’s sexual encounters took place, in which nothing was left to the imagination, shameless and almost unbelievable. However, this novel will be enjoyed by those who enjoy sensual historical fiction with an interesting plot and theme.
This is the story of Lady Juliana Beamish and Captain Drake O'Hara. Newlywed Lady Juliana is on her way join her husband when the ship she is sailing on is attacked by pirates. She manages to escape in a small boat and days later she is discovered, barely alive, by Captain Drake O'Hara, a man firmly committed to his sea faring life. The two soon develop feelings for each other, feelings they must deny because Juliana is married.
Delightful characters, great attention to historical detail and a rollicking story make this a perfect read for any lover of historical romance.
