About the Author:
I took another chance on a historical romance and this one was a delight. The characters of Daisy and Theo were strong and different and their story, while typical in the boy meets girl, boy marries girl under false pretenses,etc. plot, did have enough differences to make for compelling reading.
Daisy was not a great beauty – at least to those who didn’t really get to know her but she showed them. Theo knew soon after he married her for her money that she WAS the girl for him but didn’t know how to tell her. Their time apart was slow reading for the most part but once they got back together the book really started to sing again. Although, one does love a dashing pirate now and then.
I’ve not read any other of Ms. James’s books but I am sure they would make for fun, fast reads just as this one did. I wouldn’t hesitate to pick one up when I wanted an escape from the modern world and its worries.
