A wonderful story with great historical detail and believable characters. The plotting was great - you were never really sure who the traitor was almost until they were revealed.

Everything about this book was marvellous. The characters, the pace, the plotting, the romance. I wish I'd known about this writer before. She is incredibly skilled and intelligent. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed Swept Away. I'd give it 10 stars if I could.

I don't usually "do" regency romances. They are rather formulaic for me: 1 rake + 1 ravished virgin = scandal & forced marriage, or there abouts. Thankfully, this regency by Marsha Canham is refreshingly different.

Without giving the secrets of the plot away, the gyst is this: The heroine, Annaleah has refused to accept the hand in marriage of a man of her parents' choosing, so as punishment, she is sent to languish with an old spinster aunt in a crumbly old manor house in Cornwall hoping that a lengthy spell of boredom away from the bright lights of her usual social circle will bring her to her senses. Boy were they wrong!

She finds a near naked man washed up and unconscious on the beach, and raises the alarm. He is brought back to her Aunt's house where he is tended, but when he awakens, he suffers from complete memory loss. Before long, its realised that he is wanted by the authorities, and he has to go on the run but not before he has established a connection with Annaleah. Not knowing who he is, what he is running from, what he has done or where he is running to, he kidnaps Anna to help him find his way.

Although there's lots of action and drama, there is much humour too to balance, and of course lots of sizzling sensuality to keep you page turning. The fun comes from their relationship whilst on the run: fighting those that would capture him, fighting each other and also their progressive feelings for one another, also adding to the rollercoaster his occasional recalls of memory and the quest to clear his name - oh and lots and lots of sexual chemistry.

Its a winner. An aimiable heroine, a gorgeous multi-faceted hero, memorable and interesting secondary characters (Annaleah's eccentric Auntie is a real scene stealer), lots of intelligent (and non-corny) conversation, masses of action, and some steamy sex scenes to boot.

I loved it; its a definite keeper.

Thoroughly enjoyed this tale. As always Marsha Canham's stories are full of intrigue and action and as always I couldn't put it down until I'd read the last word.

Just brilliant is all I can say. I have now officially read all of Marshall Canham's books and this is as amazing as all the rest. I have great difficulties finding books as I am fussy as to how the lady of the book must be but to put it in a nut shell, if she can stand up for her self, perhaps wield a weapon of some sort and at some point have the need to wear trousers instead of long dresses then its a winner! ( pirate ship or two is always an added bonus). This book as all that and a bit of romance too.

The book description I do not think actually does the book justice. The characters are amazing, very funny aunt, to die for hero and some very well written lines... Look out for the street name where all the ladies who 'entertain' live!!

I read this in a few days but would have definitely read it in just 1 if I didn't have to work, a very big in convenience!

A must read- enjoy!!
