Prize of my Heart
By: Lisa Norato
From the Back of the Book:
Three years ago, Captain Brogan Talvis's late wife abandoned their son, leaving no clue as to the boy's whereabouts. After searching relentlessly, Brogan discovers his son was adopted by a New England shipbuilder. And the man's daughter, Lorena Huntley, acts as loving guardian to the child.
Lorena, who hides a dark truth, finds herself falling for the handsome captain and ex-privateer who's come to secure ownership of one of her father's ships. She's unaware of Brogan's own secret when another's deceit has her sailing toward Europe against her will.
Haunted by thoughts of Lorena in peril, Brogan is compelled to choose between the boy he longs for and the woman who has captured his heart.
I loved this book. I found both Lorena and Brogan very easy to relate to. I thought the book was well written and easy to read. I loved the adventures out on the sea. This is the second book I have read that talks about privateers I must admit I know very little about the world of privateers these books have made me curious on the subject I really need to do some research and learn more. I can tell by what I have read in this book that is was a controversial topic back in the time period the story is written.
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars!!
