This was a good ending for the Donovan Sister's series eventhough this last book was a combination of two sisters. I was hoping for more but since Ms Haymore is starting a new series, I'm happy to say goodbye to the Donovan sisters.

So-so. I found myself skimming the book, and I preferred the secondary romance involving Meg's younger sister to the main story.

This is the real Megs story. Eight years ago she was lost at sea, an event that not only devastated her family but also Captain William Langley the dashing man who loved her. It is also the event that started this series. Quite honestly Ms. Haymore has the chops that make this a novel that can stand alone, if you havent read the others. But I cannot imagine why anyone would want to do that. This is a delightful series and the Donovan sisters are interesting and so are the men who capture their hearts.

Captain Langley is patrolling off the Cornwall coast looking for smugglers and pirates that plagued those waters. His new ship the Freedom has just been through a sudden storm and Will is checking for any storm damage to his beloved ship, his first mate Mr. Briggs sees a small jolly boat in the distance, its mast broken and the sail trailing in the water. Going to investigate they see two people in the boat a woman and her child. While hauling her on board Will recognizes her and it seems a miracle, it is his Meg! But how could this be, and the boy, is this strange little boy her son? Where has she been, and why had she not contacted her family? Can they overcome the time apart can she come to grips with the trauma that she has endured over the last 8 years and learn to trust and to love again? Of course she can this is a romance after all.

The story line is a bit farfetched but this is pure escapism, so who gives a damn. This book is the perfect weekend read and, I was able to finish it in one sitting. The bonus is that you get two love stories in one, for the youngest Donovan sister finds herself smitten by a wholly unsuitable man, but since when did that stop one of the Donovan sister?. 3.5 stars.
