Publisher’s Description:

One Disastrous Debutante
Ever since Louisa Carmichael’s brother unexpectedly inherited a dukedom, her mother’s expectations for her have veered in a distinctly vertical direction. Louisa dreams not of glittering ball gowns, but of exploring the tropical waters of the Caribbean with her latest invention, an underwater breathing apparatus.

One Roguish Sea Captain
Lord Rupert Haywood, future Duke of Belmonte, has no desire to manage an estate with his corrupt father. He prefers to roam the ocean with his crew of rugged pirates.

One Forbidden Journey
When her mother arranges a marriage for her, Louisa decides she might just don a pair of breeches and discover the Caribbean in disguise. The only problem is a certain very handsome captain…

My Thoughts:

This is book #3 of this fun series by a relatively new author on the scene. I have read book #2 and the prequel Novella that are part of this series and found them to be engaging. I did however miss out on book #1. I will try to go back and read it although I don’t think it necessary. These books seem to only be tied together by theme rather than characters. They all do well as standalones.

I feel the characters and storyline are well developed and interesting.
I gave this book 4 of 5 stars for storyline and characterization and 2 of 5 flames for heat. There isn’t a lack of sexual by play in this book but it was kept to a minimum.
I received a complimentary digital copy from the author via Book funnel to read and review.
This in no way affected my opinion of this title.
