Chloe has already lost her mother at a young age, to lose her father at 19 was too much add a man that claims her father wanted her to marry him and take over her money was more than she could take. She decides she should go to her grandmothers, gets on a boat and leaves life as she knows it. Chloe is a very strong willed lady and goes through some trying times. Gabriel finds her and does his best to protect her, men kidnap her but Gabriel finds her. Both have a lot to learn as they travel the seas and endure many trying times.
I thought the author gave us wonderful characters with a story to tell. I loved Gabriel for his strong caring ways. He grew to be a wonderful man you could lean on, one that cares so much and gives so much. Chloe grew to be a better person to learn to trust and found that not all mean are evil or have bad intent.
I felt this was an enjoyable read at times long winded and could have been cut down a little. All in all it wasn’t a bad read. At times I was a little confused but I worked it out. The author does have a wonderful plot with wonderful characters. She tells a story of lost, pain and sorrow as they grow to become stronger more meaningful adults. I wouldn’t say this is your normal historical romance but a good one with a wonderful ending.
The book takes place in many locales - New York City, Virginia, South Carolina, Nassau, Mississippi and New Orleans - but mainly at sea. Grant and his son, Gabriel, are setting out on a voyage with their crew to take them from New York to New Orleans where they live. We get to know them as well as Chloe and what she's running from. While there's immediate chemistry between her and Gabe they try to fight it at every turn without much success. As they grow closer there are always secrets between them and they all relate back to Chloe even the misfortunes that fall upon them. Unfortunately some of what was going on was obvious and Gabe just seemed not to put all the pieces together although he and his dad both seemed smarter than that. Lamonte, whom Chloe was running from, was evil incarnate and Chloe didn't want to realize the full extent of the evil he was capable of and often seemed naive.
The descriptions of the ship, the cities and ports, the clothing, homes and scenery were very vivid and made me feel that I was there. There were many adventures, family and friends, sailing terms, French words, storms, travels on land and sea, fights, accidents, injuries, laughter, tears, pain, heartbreak, romance and love. The prologue set the stage of what was to come and the epilogue gives the happily ever after and some closure. I look forward to reading the next book in the series, Upon Your Love.
This book was given to me by the author for my honest review.
