I found this surprisingly refreshing and enjoyable. The author has chosen to tell the story in a unique way: first-person journal entries alternating between the two main characters. Both characters have a distinct voice – something I picked up on right away – and it makes it very easy to connect with them, get a feeling for their personalities, and understand the world in which they’re living. If you’re looking for something steamy and explicit, this isn’t it. But if you’re looking for a nice historical adventure romance on the high seas, this should be right up your alley.
