An entertaining and exciting tale of honour, loyalty and love, with a hint of Pride and Prejudice thrown in.
Linet de Montfort has been brought up to believe that all commoners are the same as her money-grabbing mother. This is the exact opposite to Duncan de Ware’s upbringing. When Duncan first see’s the fiery tempered angel he knows that he can never let harm come to her and vows to protect her with his life. Linet, mistaking Duncan as a beggar, tries to relinquish Duncan of his vow but the longer they are together and the more trouble they find themselves in, the more her feelings grow for him.
I can understand Linet’s feelings having been brought up the way she was, however her blindness to the true Duncan does get a bit annoying after a while. With all the evidence to the contrary she still believes him to be a commoner and therefore not someone her title would deem suitable for her.
Despite Linet’s prejudice towards him, Duncan is steadfastly loyal to her. I really liked Duncan’s character. His whole personality screams loyalty, humanity and understanding. Besides having many children by many different women it is portrayed in the story that he would be faithful to his wife, although if I was Linet I would want to clarify this with him before I married him….any future children should come form her and her alone.
Knights, Lords, Ladies and Pirates are all encompassed within this fast-paced action story with love at the heart.
Sir Duncan de Ware is a sworn champion of the common man and a master of disguise. So when he finds plucky maiden-in-distress Linet de Montfort facing off against a notorious pirate, noble Duncan goes undercover to come to her rescue, despite her insistence that she can take care of herself. When the pirate abducts her, Duncan and Linet are caught up in a breathless adventure of danger and romance on the high seas. And soon Linet realizes her only hope is to trust her mysterious hero—with her life and her heart.
