What a great story!! First I loved that the main character was a heroine and second that it featured rather sexy sounding Captain!! I love historical romance stories so as soon as I read the synopsis I was eager to start!
I loved the setting for the story and the plot. It was totally unique and this made the story even more enjoyable for me! I loved the characters – Mary was great! I loved her feistiness and they was she wasn’t afraid to go for what she wanted – even if it didn’t always go the way she wanted anticipated. Captain Richard Grant was so sexy!! He also had a past that was great to read about in the book. He was certainly sexy and dominating but also showed a gentle side sometimes towards Mary.
We start the story in Ireland where Mary is trying to get her ancestral home back. She embarks on a journey disguised as a ‘cabin boy’ except she doesn’t realise she will end up on a ship with a Captain who not only discovers who she is but in turn wants her total submission.
I haven’t previously read anything by this author and I can’t wait to read more of her work. The descriptive writing in the story was great, I could imagine what I was reading and felt like I was on that ship with them! There were some great twists to the story that I wasn’t expecting. Some of the scenes between him and Mary were HOT!!! I loved reading about Mary and Richard’s journey! I definitely recommend it!
I'm not one to love historical romances but this book has made me rethink everything I've been missing out on! Mary is an Irish born rebel who's just one of the many that suffered the effects of the Rebellion in 1798 (I actually learned something) and when the one thing to grant her home freedom disappears, she goes out to retrieve it. At all costs.
The tone of this story and writing style were amazing. I loved how stubborn she was, how persistent and passionate she felt for her country. Grant, a captain who knew more than anyone about hardship and hard work, refuses to grasp her understanding of boarding a Navy's ship under guise. Yet when push comes to shove, he finds himself doing everything in his power to keep her safe. Their chemistry was off the charts, and since I'm a sucker for the hate-first-love-later romances, it wasn't hard to get into their dominate games of keeping control. There was adventure, suspense, a thrilling secret that would make or break them. The ending was a little weird for me but in all honesty, I don't exactly have the grounds to judge how one would react in the face of danger. But still, it left me very satisfied in the end and I can't wait to see what other Irish heroines Halverson has in store. Definite recommend for you history buffs that enjoy a good tale.

I really liked the plot and the characters that lead to a very entertaining read that held my attention and kept me turning the pages. The chemistry between these two is hot and off the charts filled with passion and longing. A very well written and thought out story that is intriguing with vivid details that makes you almost feel like you are right there watching.
Mary had me in her hands from the start with all she had to deal with. Her love of her country is outstanding it made me proud of her and all she stood for. She isn’t a woman to take what is dished out but stands proud and is demanding in her own way. Captain Grant had to do a little work for me to like him but he came through even with that tough side and a voice that make grown men jump to his demands he became a very likable character. The author was able to turn him in to a wonderful man any women would be happy to have. Erotic is not a genre I read a lot of most is lacking in plot and story not the case with this author she knows how to pull of the plot, love scenes to really make it an interesting read filled with excitement and thrills. I look forward to reading more of her work.
As an aside, I most often read for pleasure but Halverson forced me to pause and think a bit while reading an overlapping passage from Coleridge's "Rime of the Ancient Mariner" with a rather heated encounter between the Captain and Mary. The mention of "albatross" highlighted the often-intermingling good luck/bad luck outcomes of Mary's travels. This is a good thing when brain cells are forced to fire up. It's an unexpected and appreciated bonus for me.
This is a good read especially if you desire a bit of heat generated by a few SM interactions and a story that moves right along.
