Not since Kathleen E. Woodiwiss's masterful The Flame and the Flower has a romance dared to delve so deeply into a womoan's vulnerability.... Dashing Irish sea captain Patrick Mullen knows women like he knows the sea, but he is completely unprepared for the sight of lovely Camille Bradburn, the only daughter of the Duke and duchess of Eton. Cultured, wealthy, innocent, and impossibly beautiful, she is nothing he could ever hope to have, and everything he has ever desired......
I could not get into this series of books by this author. The H/H's were uninspiring. The dialog was insipid and the plot was wretched. The books are dark in story but with little eroticism, just sad lives and a slow storyline. I didn't like the storyline, characters, or writing.
I really enjoyed this book for the simple fact that when the H/H first meet and get to know each other they do not try to hide their feelings from each other.
Amid all the trials, betrayals, obstacles and separations he remains true and given her back ground and events that happen she never 'really' gave up her Hope of him despite overwhelming adversity.
A sweet and bitter-sweet story that deserved a re-read.
