I read very few romance novels, but Heyer's writing is so good, I'll read anything she wrote. This is an absorbing story.

This was not my favorite Georgette Heyer book. It is set in Elizabethan times, rather than her usual Victorian times, and she spends a lot of time describing dress and history...neither of which is a bad thing, if you enjoy it. It did have a typical love story with a strong heroine and many adventures, and many of her books do.

The story was suspenseful and nonstop action. It had us rooting for the hero all the way. The humor was contagious.

From the back cover...

During her return to Spain with her father, the lovely Dona Dominica de Rada y Sylva is horrified when their ship is set upon by pirates. Far worse is her discovery that their captor isnt just any pirate-he is the notorious Sir Nicholas Beauvallet, an Englishman with a scandalous reputation for plundering Spanish ships. But Dominicas pride braces her determination to be no ones hostage

It should have been easy for Sir Nicholas. It was, after all, just another ship. But instead, Sir Nicholas finds himself captivated by Dominicas dark beauty and indomitable courage. After returning his captives to their homeland, Sir Nicholas vows to win the heart of the Spanish beauty. It could be his riskiest venture yet-and one that promises a treasure greater than any other
