The mannish broad brimmed hat hid the worry in Edwinna's lovely eyes. Looking at the aqua waves lapping the white sands the sugarcane like green swords against a cloudless sky, she surveyed the Barbados plantation that she would inherit. if she could find a man to marry within twenty four hours...
A romantic fiction.. Is Drake a pirate or is he not? Set in Barbados,the heroine, Edwinna is to inherit a plantation...if she could find a man to marry within 24 hours.
Does she trust Drake? Which man does she marry?
There were a number of things I liked about this romance, including the setting (Barbados, 1669), and the way the hero slowly helps the heroine overcome her past. There are some well-written subcharacters, too, which help propel the story along. Drake (the hero) is something of a jerk toward Edwinna during the last third of the story, which I have to admit was tough to read, BUT, on the other hand, Edwinna didn't fall apart, and removes herself from a painful situation quickly, showing how much she's grown & changed. And at least Drake realizes he's made a mistake. It's a good read, much less run-of-the-mill than many romances.
