Another great book by Carla Kelly. When I went to the book store, a couple of days before the book was officially 'out,' only one copy was left. If only all romance authors were this good. Sigh ... Read full review

About the author (2009)

I started writing Regencies because of interest in the Napoleonic Wars. I like writing about warfare at sea and ordinary people of the British Isles, rather than lords and ladies. In my spare time I like to read British crime fiction and history, particularly the U.S. Indian Wars. I currently live in Utah. I'm a former park ranger, and double Rita Award and Spur Award winner. I have five interesting children and four grands. Favorite authors include Robert Crais and Richard Woodman.
