Read full description of the books:
I am a sucker for this kind of book. I love the jerky hero, strong sassy heroine, jealousy, other women, lots of misunderstandings, angst, great grovels and this book had it all. Beautifully written with a very touching story, it grabbed me right away.
This time period for historical romance isn't always a favorite of mine because they tend to not have the strong alpha hero, but more high society rakes. Well yes, Michael was the high society rake, but I just loved his arrogance and assholeness. What was best was his willful, passionate, free spirit betrothed, Abbey, who was cast upon him against his will. Although she was the ugly duckling that turned into a beautiful swan he didn't want her. She was vulnerable and naive and completely oblivious to the upper class etiquette of Michael's world, but she was strong in confidence and wouldn't back down to his intimidations. She didn't even mind throwing a punch or giving a kick to the crotch at the ball of the year.
Abbey loved and idolized Michael as a child and Michael (10 yrs older) detested her. Twelve years later, Abbey was all about fairytale and romance as she waited for her prince to be ready for her. She fantasized about how he had loved her for 12 years, since she was child of 9 yrs old on her father's ship, and he couldn't wait to make her his wife.
Completely different story in Michael's mind, he could hardly remember her. He was clueless and angry when he found out that he had to marry the captain's daughter who annoyed and brutalized him. She was a young hellion on the ship where he worked to cover his father's gambling debts and due to some legal mumble jumble found he could not get rid of her without losing everything he had.
I can't say this book was some sweeping, unforgettable epic that is going to stick with me forever or that I couldn't put it down, but I loved the style and themes and enjoyed it from beginning to end. A fabulous historical romance read!
