Sea Scoundrel by Annette Blair

Sea Scoundrel - Annette Blair

Posted above is the actual cover for the edition I read.

*Historical Romance*

Lady Patience books passage for herself and her four charges to England because she has been tasked with ensnaring titled husbands for them. Before boarding, she meets Captain Grant St. Benedict. Cue the romance.

This was my introduction to Annette Blair, and I wasn't disappointed. Charming story and characters and the further along I read, the more I enjoyed it. Even though I totally called the surprise concerning the Marquess way early in the book, that fact did not damper my satisfaction in reading it play out. I appreciated the side story plot of Patience's aunt and Rose's daughter, Amy. The sexual scenes were a little mild, but enjoyable. I wish there had been an additional scene of the couple's actual first time together after so many mini scenes leading up to it. But even without it, I was engrossed in the story. Four stars!
