A PERILOUS PASSAGE
Ordered by the Prince Regent into the Caribbean, English sea captain and former privateer Jean Nicholas Powell has no time for women aboard the Wind Raven, especially not Tara McConnell. The impudent American demanded passage, and so she’ll get more than she bargained for: Instead of a direct sail to Baltimore, she’ll join his quest to investigate and neutralize the rampaging pirate Roberto Cofresi.
But the hoyden thinks she can crew with his men! And though Nick bans her from the rigging he is captivated watching her lithe, luscious movements on deck. Facing high seas, storms, cutthroats and the endless unknown, he must always protect his ship, his passengers, his crew. But on this voyage, with this woman, there is a greater danger: to his heart.

Ending of Series Another Winner!
I loved this third and last story in Ms. Walker's Agents of the Crown trilogy and was sad to see the series end. But I have confidence that Ms. Walker's writing skills will continue on in other stories and I eagerly await them. The story of this heroine (Tara) and hero (Nick) took place mostly on the high seas on Nick's ship (the Wind Raven) and a couple of stops on their voyage from London, where Nick's family owned a shipping company, to Baltimore to return Tara to her American shipping family. Along the way, Tara and Nick fought their attraction for each other due to the war history between England and America...but their love bloomed and grew despite their reluctance. Their love was also tested by struggles with storms and pirates on the voyage, but their steadfast connection achieved an inevitable happy-ever-after. This last chapter in the Agents of the Crown trilogy was a sigh-worthy ending to the series.
