Book Description: Cassandra Channing's determination to save her family from destitution sends her on a near impossible quest. The war of 1812 presents the unique opportunity to invest in a privateer--yet no man is willing to submit himself to a woman investor.The town rake, Luke Heaton, isn't the most reputable. With only a broken sea vessel that will cost far too much to repair and no one willing to take a chance on him, he knows his luck is short. When the beautiful Miss Channing offers to invest in him, he knows he can't turn the opportunity down. Is it possible she could be the answer to his deepest desire--a new start? As Luke and Cassandra work together, an undeniable attraction pulls them closer together. When it finally seems as though Luke may have his new start, the British blackmail him into selling to them and betraying his country, risking everything he holds dear.
My Review: Have you ever began a book and thought, "I've read this before?" Well, after beginning Surrender the Dawn by MaryLu Tyndall this is exactly what I was thinking. Deja vu!
As I continued reading I realized that the events were not on timeline but the story was backtracking. Once I realized this "it all made sense." So, this is a book that if you've read the preceding book, Surrender the Night, you may think you've read it before which you have but this is not the same story...just a few facts from the previous book.
I loved reading about the high seas adventure and the characters in this well written story makes it very hard to put this 5 star read down!
If you enjoy historical reads mixed with courage, adventure and romance then make sure to add this book to your summer TBR pile!
