Jemima runs away from home after she is betrothed unwillingly. Dressed as a boy she works on the ship. When she is attacked she is saved by Simon, the owner of the ship. I really enjoyed this story it was full of adventure, misunderstanding, lies, deception, dastardly characters, alienated parents but also true love. Simon and Jemima brave the storm together to a very HEA. A highlight too, is the extended epilogue!
My this is an exciting story of a very determined young lady who refuses to marry the man chosen by her parents. She is prepared to do anything to stop the marriage, and hatches a plan to escape. Her bravery and inventiveness can only keep her safe for a short time, but it is enough to reach a form of survival. Her secret is discovered, and unexpected feelings grow into love. Danger of course follows she actions, until the truth finally is revealed to all. I very much enjoyed this storyline, and found it to be well planned and exciting to read. I received an arc of this book, and voluntarily review and recommend it here.
