A child bride, Sara Winchester had grown into a winsome beauty, joyfully anticipating the day when her husband Nathan, Marquess of St. James, would return to claim her heart at last. Charmingly innocent, she dismissed the ancient feud that divided Nathan's family from her own...and she was totally unaware of his past exploits as the notorious pirate, Pagan. The man who now stood before her was perplexing, arrogant and powerfully handsome...a warrior-gentleman whose gentle touch aroused her to the wildest, deepest pleasures of love. Nathan had never bared his soul to any woman, but he was soon utterly beguiled and exasperated by Sara's sweet, defiant ways. Aboard his ship, The Seahawk, she was brave, imperious and determined to win his heart completely -- yet upon their return to England, her love would be sorely tested as a vile conspiracy tried to tear them apart. With their future at stake, they would discover the true destiny of their passion...for all time!

I actually didn't expect to like this book. The beginning was slow but as i continue to read i started to enjoy it.Sara was a funny personage I usually don't like heroines like her, but i liked her and all the trouble she was making even when she didn't mean to. But she cries a lot and it was a litt...
Would have been a 4 maybe, if not for the sniffling, sobbing air head heroine. I usually like Garwood's heroines, even if they tend to be a bit too sweet and big eyed, but this one made me gnash my teeth too many times. There were moments I just wanted someone to just throw her overboard and be done...
