What an atmospheric book! The descriptions of the setting were vivid an entrancing.
I read Highland Storms (featuring the big brother of the hero in this book) and really enjoyed it. Monsoon Mists stars Jamie Kinross - whose story was hinted at in Highland Storms, but is explained in this one - and Zarmina Miller - beautiful, damaged and mixed race (which was a big deal at the time).
I enjoyed the story a lot. Zar is spirited without being annoying and she's really, REALLY good at her job. I like that. Jaime is... well, a little too perfect for my tastes - he's a gem expert, he's noble, he can speak several languages, he can hold is own in a fight, he's a skilled but considerate lover. Written out like that he does sound like a pretty great hero...must just be me. Wouldn't be the first time I've been told my taste in men is odd - I'm a beta hero kinda girl.
All in all, it's a lovely book. If you're following the stories of the Kinross boys, you'll really enjoy this. And it's got pirates in it. Who doesn't love a book with pirates in it?
