In 1720 London, sea captain Joshua Fairbourne decides to return to his home in the Massachusetts Colony with a spouse. His criteria for a wife requires her to be a refined, gentle lady, who will adorn his home. He has found the perfect prospect until he meets Annabelle Crosbie, an obstinate, independent fireball. .....Joshua resolves to marry Annabelle, who is already engaged to wed a fortune hunter. Joshua convinces Annabelle to sails across the ocean with him. On the high seas, both are in for a shock because neither seem to behave the same on the ship as they did on land. Still, the couple has fallen in love with each other. Now all they have to do is survive a nasty Atlantic storm and her fiance who has given chase if they are to enjoy a lifetime of happiness together in the colonies. ......Miranda Jarrett is the admiral of the historical sailing romance and her latest novel, THE CAPTAIN'S BRIDE, is at her usual level of excellence. The story line is superb and filled with non-stop action and the lead protagonists are a delightful, intrepid couple. The surprise ending is simply a pleasure to read. Another great tale that is on an even keel with the top of the Sparhawk series
