Millie, Aimee, and Janelle are all aristocratic ladies who are best friends and they pride themselves on their bold and daring spirits. Millie is married to Aimee's brother and Aimee is in love with Reece, ship Captain and best friend to her brother. Over the years Reece has ignored her and she is sure he loves her and to prove it, she manages to be "captured" by his crew and is taken aboard his vessel. Problem is Millie and Janelle were with Aimee when she was abducted on the London docks and they cannot be certain if she was really taken to the correct ship. When Millie confesses her part in Aimee's disappearance to her husband, he goes ballistic, completely overreacting and sends Millie away to her father's home in the country.
Meanwhile Aimee somehow manages to convince Reece's entire crew to allow her to stay aboard without their captain knowing she is a passenger on the vessel. Aimee is able to win any man over with her charm and beauty and, well, you get the picture, every single man is devoted to her within a week. Aimee has the ability to captivate without trying. She actually forms great bonds of friendship with many of the crew and her conversations are interesting with the crew especially the first mate, but not so much with Reece.
On land back in England, Millie has hatched a plan to confirm her sister-in-law is on Reece's boat. She works in a tavern at the docks hoping to glean information, keeping her husband in the dark about her activities and living arrangements. Millie loves to break rules and she, believe it or not, is practically a ninja fighting warrior, (I had a hard time believing it). She also has the ability to charm everyone like her sister-in-law. She comes off a little as the pity-me-I-am-a-rich-girl-who-is-misunderstood type. Her escapades actually involve a very intriguing gentleman and it was a disappointment when they did not have a story, they were actually an exciting couple.
Both couples in this novel are overly flawed. Millie is hard headed and reckless and thoughtless, her husband imperious and reserved. Aimee is immature and fickle and Reece lacks insight. I had little interest in these couples because they lacked strong emotional bonds, especially trust. Because their scenes together were limited, neither couple felt like they had a relationship built upon love and friendship.
I would skip this book and the boring frustration it brings.
I did enjoy the characters and the plot. It is a good read and I hope the last one comes out soon.
