Predictable and disappointing…

For those still interested in hearing about what I’ve recently read and my thoughts on it, here’s another instalment…and as you can no doubt tell from the title of this post, it definitely wasn’t a great book.

George’s former fiancée, Miss Caroline Mirringham, harbors a secret. She has trusted no man except her father and George, and now considers her future to be a desolate one. When her father proposes that Caroline marry Nicholas, she is filled with dread. The captain is nothing like his amiable brother. He looks altogether too strong and harsh. He would demand far more from her than she could give. Continue reading
