The Other Miss Bridgerton

Avon. (Rokesbys, Bk. 3). Dec. 2018. 391p. ISBN 9780062388209. pap. $7.99; ebk. ISBN 9780062388216. HISTORICAL ROMANCE
Thrilled to discover what can only be a pirate's treasure cave during a seaside walk, Poppy Bridgerton is far less elated when she's captured by said pirates, carried off to their ship, and summarily dumped on the captain's bed. Stunned by his most inconvenient passenger, privateer Capt. Andrew James Rokesby, with secret documents to get to Portugal without delay, has little choice but to sail immediately—and take Poppy with him. Furious words fly and passions flare as Poppy and Andrew clash all the way to Lisbon, trying in vain to ignore the chemistry that bubbles in their wake. As Poppy doesn't know Andrew's true identity, things are even more dangerous. Moments of peril, an adorable cabin boy, and sweet sensuality are bonuses to a well-crafted romp.
VERDICT A risk-taking pair thrown together by chance find love on the high seas in this fast-paced, passionate adventure graced with quick-witted dialog and a marvelous sense of fun. Another worthy addition to the ever-increasing Bridgerton saga. Quinn (The Girl with the Make-Believe Husband) lives in the Pacific Northwest.
