Rating: You Gotta Read
Reviewed by: Mickey
Captain Nathaniel Cruise always puts duty first. But a beautiful woman tempts him from his duties to pursue more… pleasurable diversions. Beyond her physical charms, Lady Blackburn has wit and intelligence. He’ll have to stay one step ahead of the seductive widow to keep from falling under her spell.
Lady Juliette Blackburn knows what she wants and she wants Captain Cruise. A wealthy widow in her own right, she decides to take her love life into her own hands. However, at every turn, the man of her dreams runs away from her. She’ll have to keep up a subtle chase to discreetly reel him in.
Despite their mutual attraction, something darker pulls them together, threatening both their lives. Together they’ll fight the villain and perhaps along the way, Juliette’s captain will surrender… to love.
One knows while reading the initial paragraph of Her Captain Surrenders, based on the description of Juliette and Nathaniel's first meeting at the ball that this book is going to be a joy to read. Ms. Knight adds something magical to that fateful dance: not just the costumes and scenery which are so lush and colorful, but the interested look in their first glance, obvious chemistry in their initial waltz, and their spicy conversation all inspire that HEA conclusion. Perhaps it is her lyrical way of writing dialogue for her characters, or maybe just the fascinating characters themselves.
I thoroughly enjoyed Ms. Knight's writing style, it is very vivid and descriptive, she is detailed in outlining her backgrounds, the scenery colorful, even the locations seem almost alive. And while she does pay such detail to the background pieces of her story, the plot does not suffer, it is just as intricate without being complex. It is difficult to find an entertaining historical book, luckily Her Captain Surrenders is one less book to look for, and one book to add to the list of those to read.
