The story of Merry, an American Revolutionary Patriot reluctantly packed off to England by an Anglophile aunt, and her adventures aboard a rather genteel privateer, is funny, charming and exciting. The pirate ship is crewed by various aristocratic bad-boy scions; one of them, Cat, is one of my all-time favorite fictional characters. Merry makes friends, gets sick, and does her best to avoid the attentions of Devon Crandall, second-in-command to the feared Reed Morgan who is not quite the black-hearted devil he appears.

By the time they arrive in England, Merry is still a virgin, but has had her worldly education considerably expanded by her fellow sailors. All eventually ends happily, although not in the least predictably, and, unusually in these books, the adventure continues after Merry's marriage to Devon.

The writing of the team calling themselves "Laura London" is so much better than the usual romanctic writer that it is a shame they never put their pens to weightier works. All in all, "The Windflower" is light-weight enough to blow off in a breeze, yet it's humor and wonderful characterisations will stay with you long after you close the book. I guarantee, this is a novel you will want to own!

This is one of my top three favorite Romance books I've ever read!! My one complaint is that a sequel hasn't been made to continue the story of one of the characters.
