Lady Georgina Kirkpatrick has eloped and defied her father once already, but when her husband is killed at Waterloo, she resigns herself to an arranged marriage and sets out for her father’s estate. Her journey, however, is intercepted by kidnappers, forcing her upon her escape to take drastic action by petitioning her brother’s friend, Robin Kerr, Marquess of St. Just, for assistance. He determines the only way to keep her safe is to ferry her away on his ship. Tight quarters and a lengthy voyage prove the perfect combination for bantering and bickering, and soon sparks fly. Now if only they can manage to thwart the plans of her father and her fiancé.
VERDICT Firmly grounded in richly told historical details, this proves a true screwball romantic comedy, perfect for anyone seeking a love story rife with fun and adventure. A successful continuation of Jaxon’s “Widow’s Club” series (after What a Widow Wants).
