When a dangerous-looking stranger raps on Lizzie Winstead’s door in the middle of a stormy night, the peace of her humdrum life is shattered. She’s shocked to discover her visitor is Captain Edmond Grey, one of the most feared pirates of the realm—and her lost love.
Edmond is a wanted man throughout the Colonies, but despite his formidable reputation, he desperately needs her help to nurse his wounded brother back to health. Only Lizzie can be trusted not to turn Edmond over to authorities for the price on his head.
Lizzie can’t quell the feelings Edmond stirs in her heart or the fire he ignites in her blood. Before long, both succumb to the reckless desire renewed between them. She follows him aboard his pirate ship and sets sail into a world rife with passion and peril. Together they brave fierce battles and frightening storms, determined to discover whether the love they once shared is strong enough to reunite them forever and conquer the demons of Edmond’s past.
Captain Grey's Lady is a thoroughly enjoyable historical romance with a swashbuckling flair, and enough excitement and lasciviousness to keep one entertained throughout.
When fate has Captain Edmond Grey once more before Lizzie Winstead, the woman he loved yet left behind to pursue his dreams of travel and adventure, the sparks flew and ignited the reckless desire that instantly flared to life between them. But he was no longer the same man; he's a feared pirate and could offer nothing but trouble and heartache. Yet despite the many dangers and adversities, or fear for the newly blossoming love between them, it’s a fate that refuses to be ignored or thwarted again.
Ms Scott’s beguiling tale of love lost and found left me smiling and pleased for the reading and sighing content, for the lovers and their eventual HEA. Certainly worth the time to read and yet light enough to enjoy on a lazy afternoon!
