When Robert Jamieson’s nemesis is released from prison, he sends his daughter to London to keep her safe from his clutches. Captain Jack escorts Vivian on his ship, but when feelings start to blossom between the two of them, it’s a boulder they can’t stop from rolling down a hill. She is sucked into Jack’s mission, into the very heart of danger. Full of secrets, danger, and love, Captain of My Heart is a book you won’t be able to put down once you pick it up.
This was one of those books that you feel sad at the end because it ended. I was pulled into the story and never wanted to come back out. The book was filled with intense scenes that had me holding my breath. I loved the interactions between Jack and Vivian. There was great chemistry between them. The slow burn romance was perfectly paced, with adorable scenes that had me laughing and smiling like an idiot.
I loved Vivian’s character. She’s feisty and can handle her own. She has the mouth of a sailor and an unyielding spirit always up for adventure. Only she would be brazen enough to punch a titled lord. Which, by the way, she did a few times. And not the same lord either.
What a great story! This is definitely one of my favorite books that I have read this year.
My rating: 5 Stars
The boy ran off, and Jack again glanced up. Climbing up was one thing, but coming down much different. Perhaps she was stuck, cowering up there, afraid to come down backward. He grabbed hold and began to scale the rigging along the mast. He climbed most of the way to the top when he spied two bare feet dangling . Then a pert, smiling face peered down at him. “Ahoy, Captain . What are you doing up here?”
The Gentleman Spy…As a favor for the pirate who once saved his life, jaded sea captain Jack Aston agrees to ferry the man’s outspoken daughter from Nassau to England. While her spirit and daring captivate him, he must keep the petite spitfire at arm’s length or risk her becoming embroiled in his latest mission for the crown.
The Pirate’s Daughter…Vivian Jamieson is not happy being shipped off to England to visit her aunts, even if it is to protect her from her father’s enemies. She may be a fish out of water in the London ballrooms, but she’s a natural at espionage. Together she and Jack track down a traitor and battle a murderous pirate. As Vivian unravels Jack’s secrets one by one, she is determined to convince this reluctant hero to let go of his past and realize he is already the captain of her heart.
