Can love survive the ultimate betrayal?
One destined to live life on the seas.
As captain of the Windrunner, Katalin Dewitt has one mission in life. Serve the ship. The ship that has been her home her entire life. The ship that is the key to keeping her father safe from certain death.
She never expected to take pity on an injured deckhand from an enemy ship and allow him onto the Windrunner. And she certainly never expected to allow him into her life.
One determined to make his way home.
Bound, gagged, and held captive on one ship after another for two long years, Jason Christopherson had long since given up hope of ever getting back to land, much less to his beloved England. He never expected to land on a pirate ship, bound for land. And he certainly never expected to fall in love with his new captain, threatening the one thing he needed most in life--to return home.
Neither expected to fall in love. Neither expected to be torn apart by a brutal betrayal.
A thousand reasons to hold your breath, and one to let it go. Historical romance with strong women, undeniable men, and hold your breath adventure.
The books in the Hold Your Breath series by K.J. Jackson are each stand-alone stories and can be read individually in any order. These historical romances are set in the Regency and Victorian eras, and do not shy away from scenes with steamy heat, occasional naughty language, and moments that might possibly make you squirm.

I've read all three books and love them all. Looking forward to reading more by K. J. Jackson.
I revived an ARC of this book for an honest review.
I really enjoyed this book, it was quite different from the previous two books in the series. I really enjoyed the pirate/privateer aspect to the story, it gave the story a unique twist to the usual regency novels. As another reviewer noted, I had a moments panic when I thought the heroine my speak like a pirate throughout the whole book but nevertheless, it was certainly entertaining when she did.
One of the things I really like is the way the author writes her characters, the female characters in particular. Her female characters have a good balance of strength and vulnerability that I don't often see. They are strong enough to stand up for themselves but also know when to bend that strength towards forgiveness or acceptance.
I also really liked getting to see what the characters from the previous books in the series were up to and I can’t wait to see what KJ Jackson brings us next in this series.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a fun mix of action and romance.
My Captain, My Earl
I'm looking forward to reading the fourth and final novel in the series. K.J. Jackson writes interesting stories with unique characters. I was not particularly crazy about either of the main characters in this book but it will not stop me from reading the conclusion.
