Product Description

Product Description

En route to marry the fiancé handpicked by her father, Virginia Ames gets shipwrecked off the coast of the beautiful Florida Keys. Her rescuer, the dashing Captain Slader, is a wrecker who specializes in salvaging cargo from sunken vessels. As a native New Englander, Virginia grew up in wealth but felt most comfortable on the docks, among the ships. This special connection to the sea is one of the few things the privileged heiress and the rugged captain share. But mixed with the captain’s handsome looks, could this passion be enough to drive Virginia’s marriage plans off course?

Captain John Slader is no stranger to the winds of change himself. He’d once lost the thing he held most dear: his family. But now that those same winds have sent him the lovely Virginia, will he risk his heart yet again? Virginia’s fiancé, an up-and-coming politician, may be able to offer her a world of wealth and comfort—but could he cherish her as John would, with a love as boundless as the ocean itself?

4.0 out of 5 stars A gentle and sweet story 13 Jan. 2015
By StarryNight TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was looking for a short, easy read and came across Windswept. Romance novels are not usually my thing but I enjoyed this book more then I thought I would!

I think it is well-written and the descriptions of the ships and the Florida Keys are evocative and really draw the reader in, while the pace of the story and characterisation are also very good.

Virginia Marie Ames is aboard one of her father's ships bound for New Orleans to meet William Brown, a man her father hopes she will marry. On the way the ship experiences difficulties and she ends up in Key West in the care of Captain John Slader who is in charge of salvaging the ship. They develop feelings for each other, but naturally things are not as simple as that for various reasons.

One thing that irked me about the story was the amount of dithering and indecisiveness that Virginia and John demonstrated, but luckily as it's a short read I managed to overcome my annoyance before the end! Overall though I would recommend this book as it's a gentle and sweetly romantic read.
