Captain Sinisterís Lady is
a great historical novel of unexpected romance between two
strong-willed characters. The plot was set in the 1820ís
during the time where pirates were the norm out on the seas.
Hats off to Darlene Marshall for giving such beautifully
written, detailed information of the Florida Straits and
coastline during this historical time period. As the
storyline progressed I felt as if I was really there
witnessing the courtship of Amanda and Morgan. And boy, what
an adventure it was. Captain Sinisterís Lady is
filled with a few dangerous twists and turns that maintained
my interest until the spectacular conclusion. If you are
looking for a rich and spicy historical romance that will tie
you up in knots, then pick up Captain Sinisterís Lady
Ė you will not be disappointed!
