Reviewer: stacey renee (rochester new york) -
Twin baby girls are separated at an early age in a nefarious plot by their greedy uncle. They are raised in 2 different countries in 2 totally manners and although, strong woman, are very different from each other. One is a 'lady' helping in the family business and the other is an infamous sword toting lady pirate. How Susan Grace weaves the lives of these woman, lady victoria, and captain cat o'banyon together throughout the story is incredible. Enough twists for everyone and just a great read.I have just finished the sequel, "forever and beyond"
the continuation of Miles and Catherine's story I can tell you to get them both upfront, 'cause you'll want to stay in their lives. The 3rd sequel is about Cat's daughter Diana, enemies of the heart, and I'm diving into that one next. This isn't a typical standard swashbuckler. There's enough espionage and adventure and comic dialogue to go around.
Note Regarding an earlier reviewers comment:
I would never sanction or enjoy a book with a brutal rape scene anymore than I would enjoy grisly murder scenes for the sake of violence. There is a rape scene in this book but it was written in a way that I did not find it offensive and it was in keeping with the story. grace.
