Georgiana da Silva is catapulted out of the Victorian drawing rooms and into a world of danger when she escapes her fiendish fiance to engage in a mad dash across the world to save her brother before an unknown assassin can find him.
Meanwhile, Captain Harry Trent is setting sail for New Zealand. With a mission to complete and the law on his heels, he’s got enough trouble of his own without further complications.
Thrown together, unable to trust anyone, Georgiana and Harry are intent on fulfilling their missions despite the distractions of the other. But liberty comes at a price and the closer they get, the more they must question the true cost of being free.
My thoughts on Close to the Wind:
When I opened the cover of ‘Close to the Wind’ I wasn’t expecting to read such a beautifully written tale of romance that had my emotions thrashing around like waves against a rock.
Georgiana is a wonderfully captivating character, how she transforms herself from the young woman we first read about into a young cabin boy had me enraptured. The acting skills she used to board the ship on her voyage to save her brother were just brilliant.
Georgiana isn’t the only captivating character, the rugged and handsome Captain Harry Trent could certainly turn heads. Harry is focused and certainly not prepared for the distractions his new ‘cabin boy’ are about to bring. A thoroughly enjoyable read that had me gripped from beginning to end as well as lusting after a new leading man! I would love to read a follow on book and find out what happens to them both.
