A Very Different Kind of Tale
Captain Joshua Jordan is asked to care for the richest man in France, Nathan Rhodes' daughter, Lynna Rhodes on his ship, as she journeys to her Aunt Julia's in America.
Nathan is terrified his daughter will be kidnapped; since several attempts were made to get Lynna, and his wife was kidnapped and killed.
Captain Jordan will receive a huge sum of money to care for her and deliver her safely. He thinks its a great deal and will share with his crew but he has not see her yet. When he sees her beauty and innocence; he is completely undone. He is tempted beyond his control.
Lynna is so innocent that she doesn't know she is compromised until someone tells her. She is hurt and disillusioned by Captain Jordan and vows to never see him again. She goes to her Aunt's but does not hear from her father. She pines for Josuah.
Joshua pines for her but will not admit it. His father becomes ill and he must return to his estate and leave the sea. He finds Lynna close by.
This story weaves around your heart and mind. It is a very different kind of Regency with it based in America. I gave it Five Stars for originality and tension between the hero and heroine. It's a must read; if you love Historical Fiction.
