I found this second novel in the “Daughters of England” series to be a vast improvement on the first. Where Book One was largely predictable and had too many slow sections, Book Two is of a much faster pace with a few surprising episodes that I didn’t see coming.

The varied conflicts, settings, and characters all gelled together to create an entertaining narrative. Didn’t think it so amazing that I should rate it five stars; however, it certainly deserves four.

Impressive. ( )

Book description
Against the backdrop of Elizabethan England is spun this engrossing story of the stormy loves and dangerous adventures of beautiful Catharine, called Cat. When fiery-tempered Cat meets arrogant, lusty Captain Jake Pennlyon, she is both attracted and infuriated by him. But Jake is determined to marry her and blackmails her into agreeing to a betrothal. Soon after she is kidnapped by a band of Spanish pirates and delivered into the hands of Don Felipe, Governor of the Canary Islands. Cat is certain she has seen the last of Jake Pennlyon, but she finds herself the help-less victim of Don Felipe's revenge against him. Cat is not one to give up. Not ever.
