Jess Whitby’s father Josiah has been arrested and accused of selling secrets to France.  She knows that her father is innocent and refuses to do nothing less than everything she can to prove his innocence.  In order to do this, she must find Sebastian Kennett.  Coming up with a plan, Jess travels to a dangerous part of town in order to set a trap for this elusive sea captain.  The joke is on Jess however because after she is hurt in an attack, she comes face to face with the man she is looking for. The only problem? They are aboard one of his ships.  Vowing to make Sebastian pay for setting up her father and kidnapping her, Jess’ anger is short lived because the more time she spends with Sebastian, the further she falls in love.

I love when heroines are kidnapped. I can’t help it.  There is just something steamy and naughty about being kidnapped and waking up aboard a ship with a sea captain.  Speaking of which, Sebastian was definitely a man after my own heart.  He was dreamy and downright drool worthy.  As a female lead, I found Jess a strong heroine and definitely not too stupid to live.  Joanna Bourne has written an intense and suspenseful historical romance with My Lord and Spymaster. I could not put it down.
