A year ago, Lady Daphne Swift married Captain Rafferty Cavendish. It was not a love match, but one that was done with practicality in mind. Daphne was helping Rafe with a mission for the crown and she was needed to translate. If they were found out, their marriage would save Daphne's reputation. Knowing that their marriage would never be a real one, Daphne is set on finding another to marry. But first she must get an annulment.
Rafe can't grant Daphne her annulment because he needs her for another mission. One that will hopefully find the person that murdered her brother. Rafe agrees to give Daphne the annulment after she helps him with the mission. But what she doesn't know, is that Rafe has no plans to end their marriage.
Can Rafe convenience Daphne to honor their vows and make it a marriage in truth?
Once again Bowman hits it out of the park! This series has been one of my favorites and continues to be with this story. Always top on my list is the bantering between the H/H. There was plenty of that between Daphne and Rafe.
Most of the story took place aboard a ship. I always like that because it forces the characters to interact more frequently with each other. In the case of Rafe and Daphne, they were sharing a cabin. They couldn't get away from the awareness they had of the other and that definitely added so much more to the story.
I can't wait for the next book in the series, The Untamed Earl, to come out in May 2016!!
