To some men honor is just a word...
Jeannette Boucher, a young French beauty from a family left penniless by the revolution, must marry against her will to save them all from ruin. But almost immediately after the vows are spoken, she learns that her old English husband is impotent—and in his desire for an heir, he plans to compromise her in the worst way. Determined to escape such a fate, she stows away on one of His Majesty's frigates. But a woman alone is in constant danger.
To Lieutenant Treynor, honor means everything...
Born a bastard to a wayward marquise, Lieutenant Crawford Treynor was given to a poor farmer to raise and was maltreated until he ran away to join the Royal Navy. Treynor is determined to prove he’s as good as any other man and rise to captain his own frigate. But once he finds Jeannette aboard The Tempest he must decide whether to return her to the man he knows would abuse her—or risk everything, even his life, to keep her safe.
I enjoyed reading this book so much! It's the first book by Brenda Novak that's a historical, and yeah, it was just great! The plot just keeps coming, and is just so great to read! Loved it!
I wouldn't want to live in this world, that's for certain! It's not the most pleasant or nice place for females-the guy that she's forced to marry wants to force her to sleep with another guy so he can get an heir, and doesn't care that its her body, not his.
I loved their interactions! There's a spark between them, but they both fight it, because it doesn't fit in their respective plans. Well, love waits for no one, including them! And yeah, they were just such a cute couple!
Really enjoyed this book, it was really great, with a good, happy ending!
