A Scoundrel Drives a Hard Bargain...
and determined to protect her young brother at any cost, Lisette
Lavigne is desperate to flee New Orleans. There’s only one ship sailing
to England, though, and the rakish Captain Daniel Hillary will only
allow Lisette’s family aboard for a very steep price...
But a Lady Always Gets the Upper Hand...
prides himself on running a tight ship, and he knows a lady will be
nothing but trouble on a long voyage. Yet he can’t help but break his
own ironclad rules when Lisette persuades him that being gentlemanly
just this once is his wisest course of action.
I was so excited to read Daniel's story and I wasn't disappointed. He
was such an ass in the last book so I just knew it was going to be an
exciting book when he was the MC. I thought it would've taken a really
strong confident woman to tame Daniel and was surprised that someone so
young and innocent was what it took. Lisette was like a breath of fresh
air for Daniel and it was fun to read him falling under not just her
spell, but her brother, Rafe's as well. I also liked that most of the
book took place aboard Daniel's ship instead of ballrooms and Town. It
actually made you understand Daniel a bit more and the reason behind his
stand-offish behavior. I really hope this series carries on through a
few more books, because I really love to read Samantha Grace. I can't
recommend this series enough and while they can be read as stand alone,
they are much more enjoyable read in order.
