Ordered by the Prince Regent into the Caribbean, English sea captain and former privateer Jean Nicholas Powell has no time for women onboard the Wind Raven, especially not Tara McConnell. The impudent American forced herself aboard, and so she’ll get more than she bargained for: Instead of a direct sail to Baltimore, she’ll join their quest to investigate a rampaging pirate, the infamous Roberto Cofresi. But the hoyden thinks she can crew with his men, and though he bans her from the rigging, Nick is captivated watching her lithe, luscious movements on deck. Facing high seas, storms, cutthroats and the endless unknown, he must protect his ship, his passenger, his crew. But on this voyage, with this woman, there is a greater danger: to his heart.


Tara isn't your typical romance heroine. She has been taking her place in a mans world for as long as she can remember. She was working on the ships with her brothers and fathers for years. Then, to fulfill her dying mothers promise, she is sent from the world she knows to London for a year to be made into a gentle woman. As her time there comes to an end, she receives a letter from her brother to come home. Her beloved father is very sick.

Nick has been on a ship his whole life as well as it is the family business. Unknowingly he meets two Americans in a bar in the Caribbean who are talking about how their sister can out work any other man on a ship. Little does he know he will come to meet this woman, and she will change all his beliefs of what a woman can and should do.

When these two strong people meet, the sparks fly from the beginning. However, will they be able to get past all the stereotypes of how a woman should behave at this time? Will they be able to survive the months on the ocean traveling from London to America? Will they be able to fight their attraction?

This was a GREAT book!!! While it is a historical romance, I honestly was so sucked into the story, I forgot all about the historical romance. It is a fantastic story about two great people that deserve to find someone who will love them as they are. I now am going to have to go back and get the other books in this series as I have to know what happens to the rest of the characters


As a child Regan Walker loved to write stories, particularly about adventure-loving girls, but by the time she got to college more serious pursuits took priority. One of her professors thought her suited to the profession of law, and Regan realized it would be better to be a hammer than a nail. Years of serving clients in private practice and several stints in high levels of government gave her a love of international travel and a feel for the demands of the “Crown” on its subjects. Hence her romance novels often involve a demanding Prince Regent who thinks of his subjects as his private talent pool. - See more at:


 “A fine fix we’re in,” Tara said, looking first at the captain and then at the night sky. The stars began to show themselves in the darkening canvas above, giving her the sense she stood on a precipice at an auspicious moment in time. It had only been a short while ago she had gained the insight she had now about the two of them. She should have realized the truth long ago.

“What do you mean?” he asked, coming up behind her, so close she could feel the heat of his chest. His warmth had always drawn her, and it was pulling her to him now like a strong undertow.

“Each of us withheld from the other the one thing we wanted,” she remarked, staring into the night sky.

“And what would that be?” He put his hands on her arms, drawing her back against his chest. She shivered with his touch but allowed it, while fighting the urge to turn and fall into his arms.

“You wanted my body and, fool that I am, I wanted your heart.”

He spun her around so fast her vision blurred. “My heart? You wanted my heart?”

“Yes, but I cannot seem to touch it.” His eyes carried a look of astonishment. “Well, you can keep it,” she said emphatically. “I don’t want it anymore. And you shall never have me!”

He stared at her for only a moment. “Oh, yes, I will.” As if she had defied one of his many orders and he was having none of it, he brought his mouth down on hers in a kiss that was claiming. One of his hands closed on her nape and his other arm wrapped tightly around her waist, holding her to him, trapping her with his powerful strength.
