This book was a wonderful and delightful read, a true love story between a strong heroine, complimented by a strong Hero.
Lieutenant Trenor Crawford is an officer at the British Royal Navy and hadn’t had an easy time getting where he is. He mistrusts women as a result of his bitterness towards his mother who lead him to believe he is a bastard, never revealing who his real father was. He meets Jeanette dressed as a boy, who is running away from her baron husband after finding out on her wedding night that the baron (who is impotent) has other distasteful ways of getting her with child. She wants to go to London in the hope that her uncle will help in having the marriage annulled.
The two characters and the situation they find themselves in create a healthy conflict, eventually find they are truly in love. Oh, what can I say? I LOVED this book, and I enjoyed that everything was nicely tied at the end, giving the Trenor and Jeannette their Happy Ever After.
