    Review From Rakehell Magazine by Christine Shoup (not paid for)Lieutenant Robert Smythe of his majesty's ship The Brunswick would do anything to save his commanding officer, Captain Jackson. The Captain turned deathly ill two days ago but had been mysteriously sick for almost two weeks now. His last hope was a healer west coast of Ireland - Varrick Island. Dark hair, tall and muscular - he was the male version of a siren and built like a veritable god. He had a powerful presence. His beautiful brown eyes were like whiskey on the soul. For years, Lt. Robert Smythe's mistress had been the sea. Upon reaching Portsmouth he would be looking for a wife. At least that was the plan until the Captain took ill.Wise Sarah Duncan was an orphan found abandoned and floating in a wee tar boat on the sea. The villagers on the mainland say she's a changeling fairy. In reality she's the daughter of Gladys Clougheen's, a renowned healer whom some villagers believe to be a witch. Sarah had cornflower blue eyes and long golden hair. She now lived on her own in Urlingford village in the rolling green hills of Kilkarney, Ireland. Sarah was previously engaged to a blacksmith but he died of typhus upon the sea. Now she was just hoping to find peace and happiness and a life all her own.Together, Robert and Sarah work to heal the Captain. In doing so they must also find a treasonous culprit. The plan was that Sarah would pose as Robert's betrothed while aboard The Brunswick and they would seek answers from anyone and everyone who had any contact with the Captain.I liked this book. The characters are strong and the story is well written. The supporting cast of nautical riff-raff gave a the book a wonderful and colorful spin that supported the protagonists perfectly. I feel as though there is another book in the making though. There is a lot more to this story to be told, I can feel it. Hopefully, we won't have to wait too long. This book is a lovely quick read perfect for a flight or day at the beach. Honestly, I feel as though I learned a lot along the way too. Ms. Adam has filled the book chock full of interesting historical, nautical and various other factoids. I thought it was pretty cool stuff. I love to learn things when I least expect to be taught anything at all!by Christine Shoup of Rakehell magazine. I did not pay for this review.

    Decent story, but somewhat superficial. I figured out the villain early on.

    Sarah Clogheen is a wise woman living with her mother on the west coast of Ireland when a stranger appears at her door with a man over his shoulder. Lieutenant Robert Smythe needs help with his Captain who has been poisoned.While trying to find out who poisoned his captain and friend Robert assumes the part of captain aboard his majesty's war ship, The Brunswick with Sarah at his side as his betroth. This book was so good and I loved that Robert didn't judge Sarah. This story has lots of twists and turns. I highly recommend it.
