In one devastating night, violin prodigy Etta Spencer loses everything she knows and loves. Thrust into an unfamiliar world by a stranger with a dangerous agenda, Etta is certain of only one thing: she has traveled not just miles but years from home. And she’s inherited a legacy she knows nothing about from a family whose existence she’s never heard of. Until now.
Nicholas Carter is content with his life at sea, free from the Ironwoods-a powerful family in the colonies-and the servitude he’s known at their hands. But with the arrival of an unusual passenger on his ship comes the insistent pull of the past that he can’t escape and the family that won’t let him go so easily. Now the Ironwoods are searching for a stolen object of untold value, one they believe only Etta, Nicholas’ passenger, can find. In order to protect her, he must ensure she brings it back to them – whether she wants to or not.
Together, Etta and Nicholas embark on a perilous journey across centuries and continents, piecing together clues left behind by the traveler who will do anything to keep the object out of the Ironwoods’ grasp. But as they get closer to the truth of their search, and the deadly game the Ironwoods are playing, treacherous forces threaten to separate Etta not only from Nicholas but from her path home . . . forever

It was okay.The story itself involved some freaky time travel, that sometimes I didn't fully comprehend. Along with these people all on the hunt for an heirloom of sorts, that can be used for the greater good evil of those who have it. What I did love was the chemistry between Etta and Nicholas. Her...
Spoiler Rating: High Dearest Lizzy, After Truthwitch, Passenger is my second Sexy Sea Captain book in a row (filling a hole in my life I’d never noticed before)–and although I liked Passenger better overall, reading it has actually made me consider bumping my rating for Truthwitch up from three ...
This book has a nice mixture of mystery, romance and time travel. All of the characters were interesting and well written. Etta is strong, intelligent and courageous despite all the obstacles she has to overcome. She is thrust into time travel without any training or knowledge that she even has the ...
I'm glad I listened to this one. I'm not sure I would have been able to finish it if I had sat down and read the physical book. While its advertised as a magical time traveler book I found it rather slow and tedious and much more about a romantic relationship than anything. Etta Spencer is a prod...
