4.0 out of 5 stars Storms on the High Seas, 9 Sept. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Surrender of a Siren (Mass Market Paperback)
Sophia Hathaway has it all - beauty, a fortune, a respected place in society, the catch of the 'ton' and the forthcoming wedding of the season. What she wants is passion. Tired of being treated as a brainless, perfect doll, she ditches her fiancé, invents a scandalous elopement and becomes Miss Jane Turner, governess, travelling to her new post on the island of Tortola. Now all she needs is a ship.

Former privateer, and full-time scoundrel, 'Gray' Grayson is happy to do anything for profit - even accept a penniless, unchaperoned governess as a passenger on his ship. Especially if she's beautiful. But Gray's turning respectable now, which means leaving the lady alone - no matter how many flirtatious glances or blatant invitations she throws his way.

Because Gray has promises to keep, and no tempting little governess will make him break it. His heart, however, is a different question...

A tale of high seas, storms, sharks and adventure, Tessa Dare returns with her second book. Though I'll admit it took me a while to warm to this. I liked Sophia in her brief appearances in Goddess of the Hunt, but here at times she's selfish and plain spoilt. However, she's also determined, courageous and good hearted. In other words she's not perfect, and she makes mistakes.

Much like Gray, who is brash, arrogant and bull-headed. He always knows what's right for everyone, and she always disputes the fact. The heat between the pair is as fascinating as it is inevitable. Dare breaks up the tedium of shipboard life with moments of flirtation, sweetness, action and sensuality, and she does a good job of keeping it all going.

(It'll be interesting to see where the last of the trilogy goes - A Lady of Persuasion - pitting Gray's charitable sister against Sophia's spurned fiancé!)

While was not as much fun or as interesting for me as `Goddess of the Hunt' this is still a thoroughly good read. Sure, there are a couple of incredulous moments, but Dare writes with enough charm to get away with it - just.
