New author Tessa Dare takes passion to the high seas in this steamy tale of a runaway bride and a devilishly disarming privateer.
Desperate to escape a loveless marriage and society’s constraints, pampered heiress Sophia Hathaway jilts her groom, packs up her paints and sketchbook, and assumes a new identity, posing as a governess to secure passage on the Aphrodite. She wants a life of her own: unsheltered, unconventional, uninhibited. But it’s one thing to sketch her most wanton fantasies, and quite another to face the dangerously handsome libertine who would steal both her virtue and her gold.
To any well-bred lady, Benedict “Gray” Grayson is trouble in snug-fitting boots. A conscienceless scoundrel who sails the seas for pleasure and profit, Gray lives for conquest–until Sophia’s perception and artistry stir his heart. Suddenly he’ll brave sharks, fire, storm, and sea just to keep her at his side. She’s beautiful, refined, and ripe for seduction. Could this counterfeit governess be a rogue’s redemption? Or will the runaway heiress’s secrets destroy their only chance at love?
I’m not sure how I feel about this book. I really likes Sophia in the last book and I was looking forward to her HEA. In this book Sophia did not have great character, she was selfish and a lier and it was almost hard to like her. Her character does redeem herself in the end but I was a bit sad at how she acted at times. Grayson was a very likable person and I loved how his character evolved. I’m looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
Surrender of a Siren
Love this book loved Sophia in the first book loved her even more in this one. Loved Gray cannot wait to read the next book.
Just read it!
I truly LOVED this book. It was everything I would want in a romance novel. One of my favorites out of probably 20 romance novels I’ve read in the last couple months (yeah I know, it’s a lot thanks to COVID). This might be my most favorite of all of them actually. Love Sophia & Grey. Get swept away in their journey. Just start it, you won’t regret it if you love this genre. ✨
