The review --
A young lady tries to arrange a situation where the man she is in love with will have to propose marriage to her. But alas, all goes awry when she ends up being found compromised with the wrong man. The Captain had only come there to check up on his little sister; instead, he ended up with a wife. That's how the book starts, and it keeps up the pace too.
This is an excellent book, well deserving of every star that I've given it. Want a spicy historical romance novel to curl up with this Christmas? Then this is your book. I loved the characters, the story, the setting, everything! This is a wonderful book, and the author has crafted a most delicious story. I would read and recommend her writing any time.
