When I began this book, I was not expecting to like it half as much as I did. This is a well-written, fast paced book with well developed characters and an exciting plot. While darker in tone than a lot of romance novels (a great deal of it takes place on dark and stormy nights in Cornwall as opposed to sparkling London ballrooms), it catches the reader's attention and keeps it through to the end. Grayshire is an enigmatic and fascinating hero, and Lark is a strong (but not anachronistic) heroine. Their coming together, although anyone who reads romance novels will know it's going to happen from the very beginning - is full of strife - and both of them have to work on their happy ending a little. A very good book! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0843959819, Mass Market Paperback)


Lark at first hoped it was a simple nightmare: If she closed her eyes, she would be back in the mahogany bed of her spacious boudoir at Eddington Hall, and all would be well. Her father, the earl of Roxburgh, would not be dead by his own hand, and she would not be in Marshalsea debtor's prison.

Such was not to be. Ere the Marshalsea could do its worst, the earl of Grayshire intervened. Lark shivered, considering the mysterious stone-faced noble. He'd paid her bond while the rest of London turned an eye as blind as the one beneath his eye patch. But while his touch was electric and his gaze piercing, for what purpose had he bought her freedom? A plan including Cornwall, return to the world of the haute ton, and embroilment in a struggle against both England's own Admiralty and the French. But even more perilous, the ex-sea captain might plunder her heart. No, this was not a dream. As Lark would soon learn, her dreams had never ended so well.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:25:04 -0400)

When the mysterious Earl of Grayshire purchases her freedom from Marshalsea Debtor's Prison, Lark discovers that she is to be his mother's companion, a position that unexpectedly plunges her into a world of intrigue, adventure, and love.
