Love, Betrayal and Redemption
Calista ‘CC’ Collins is used to being the talk of the town. With her scandalous past she’s learnt the hard way that a woman needs to be strong to get what she wants in a man’s world. And what she wants is the infamous Captain Beauford Tollier—roguish son of an earl, notorious blockade-runner and all-round knave of the seas.
However, Captain Beau is not one to be cajoled—he is done with the dangerous sea life and ready to follow the life of the straight and narrow. But with many powerful forces circling around him, Beau doesn’t stand a chance...PRAISE FOR THE TROUBLE WITH MISBEHAVING

The Trouble With Misbehaving, by Victoria Hanlen, is one of the more enjoyable historical fiction stories I’ve had the chance to read.
I adored the beginning banter between the hero (Beau) and heroine (CC) as she tried to get him to agree to help her family out of a bind. By Chapter 5, we find CC is a take charge woman who knows how to successfully get her way.
Set in London in 1864, this is a refreshing, energetic story, full of danger, wit, humor, and intrigue. The author writes as though you're part of everything that's happening, from the time the hero and heroine met, to their travels at sea. From the compassion Beau had shown when CC was ill, to the realization that it was she who got him out of prison. This story has adventure and will take you along for a wonderful ride if you let it.
I received this as an arc for and honest review and I can say this is an author that I can't wait to read again.
