When Captain Riordan Spencer arrives to deliver the news that the Lambert sisters' beloved father and brother were killed on their way home from sea, he never expects to be confronted by such a strength of union on the part of the Lambert family and their friends. He is also stunned to find himself fascinated with Ambrosia, the eldest of the sisters, whose skill with a sword rivals her great beauty. The Lambert sisters are not typical young women and Ambrosia, especially, has been gifted with a heart as stout as any man's and a courage that matches her fearlessness. Familiar with ships and life at sea, it doesn't take her long to deduce that it was more than just a storm that was responsible for the deaths of her father and brother. And the more she learns of their loyalty to the king, the more she realizes that Spencer and her father and brother are not merely sailors. Soon, Ambrosia and her sisters take up the cause to fight for king and country and to carry on where her father left off, as privateers.
With this story, Ruth Langan has written a marvelous tale full of heart-stopping suspense and a stirring romance between Riordan and Ambrosia who share an uncommon love of adventure that cannot be contained by the strictures of society. Though for the sake of her safety, Riordan might wish it. Readers will be moved by the Lamberts and their loyal, and uncommonly brave, friends who risk a great deal for each other as well as their king. And though there is no real mystery involved, Langan keeps you on the edge of your seat with dangerous sea battles and the thrill of life at sea. I look forward to reading the next installment about these three remarkable and courageous sisters.
