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.
