This book is very passionate and emotional. The sex scenes are really hot and there is alot of emotional upheaval. It is your basic kidnapping romance, the heroine Summer Ashton is forced to wed by her father. She is headed to meet her new husband when her ship is attacked by another ship. The captain of the other ship is Brent Douglas and he has a grudge against Summer's husband. He decides to get back at him through her. When he realizes she is innocent and she was forced to marry he no longer uses her as a form of revenge and they have a steamy affair, but Summer cannot forget what he did, so even though she desires him she is forever fighting him and at odds with him. This book has plenty of passion, the story is fast paced and interesting. The female character is not a complete doormat for the male, like they tend to be with these older historical romances. I recommend this book.
This book is in the Georgian era it is about a sea captain that is a pirate and boards the Sea Otter and takes the bride by proxy of his enemy the earl and revenge is sweet for he beds her first and ruins her for any other man.
