Pressured to marry for money, Julia Scott flees England and a cruel stepmother to determine if the West Indies is the paradise of her dreams. Attacked by pirates and desired by island natives, the only person she can trust is John Smith -- if that's her rescuer's true name. Reaching her uncle's station in English Harbor, Julia must find a way to face her feelings and deal with her traitorous family, a dashing new suitor, and the guardian angel, John Smith, who has no qualms sporting counterfeit names and less than what is proper attire.

My Review

I pretty much enjoyed this book from beginning to end. There was adventure, hilarity, dialogue full of wit, friendship, and some sweet romance. I loved Julia, even in all her naivete, and dashing "John Smith" who was rather a charming rogue and Julia's hero on multiple occasions. I was amazed at how well the characters and plot were developed for a story less than 200 pages. It was very well done and I was thoroughly entertained. Even though this was an entertaining and sweet story with some hilarious and dangerous twists, there was also some depth here. I loved that John understood much about Julia that she didn't say and how they formed a bond and friendship before anything else. I'll definitely be looking to see what else this author writes.

Content: There was some mild innuendo and violence, but I would consider this clean.

I would say this is definitely woth the $1 purchase price since I thoroughly enjoyed it. Have you read this or do you think you will?
