you'll love this book. It's a historical romance yes, but it's so much more than that. It's an adventure on the high seas, intrigues in the courts of France and England, blackmail and the ransoming of not so innocent piracy victims. Two sisters discover each other after their family was torn apart almost 2 decades prior. They also discover love and honor and loyalty along the way, and some very handsome beaux too. But the great romance in this story is not between men and women, but between the sisters, and their long lost mother. If you like strong central female characters, and lots of them, you'll like this book.
