One woman takes the treacherous journey toward redemption . . . and love.
All Phoebe Lee wants out of life is to practice midwifery in Loudon County, Virginia. But when she refuses to accompany her pregnant sister-in-law to help save her husband from an English prison during the War of 1812, Phoebe finds herself pressed aboard a British privateer.
Captain Rafe Docherty promises to get Phoebe's brother-in-law out of prison in exchange for information Rafe needs to exact revenge on the man who destroyed his family. As he realizes his attraction to Phoebe, she determines to get ashore before her patient goes into labor--and before her own heart is in danger. But an enemy in their midst threatens to end their plans--and their very lives.
My Thoughts: This book has lots of attitude! Phoebe's sister in law Belinda gets her on board a British Privateer to go and help save her husband from an English prison. Phoebe doesn't want to go. She's only going, under duress because Belinda is pregnant and could have the baby during the trip. Phoebe does not trust Rafe the captain of the ship, she believes he has his own agenda and is just using them, but she is determined to make sure the baby arrives safely no matter what she has to do.
The way Belinda and Phoebe go at each other is hilarious! I was giggling way too much! This is a great read one I highly recommend!
