This is the second in the Lost Lords trilogy and I have to admit that it was a good book. Lady Anne Hayworth hires the infamous Crimson Jack, aka Lord Tristan Easton to carry her on a ship to say goodbye to her fiancee. Love and romance blossom on the trip but Lord Tristan has no desire to take up his place in society where he feels unwelcome.
As much as I enjoyed the book I do have to wonder at the fact that she was able to sneak out as much as she did and to head off to ports unknown with no one the wiser. Her father and brothers had to know where she was going since she had been in mourning for two years. I am surprised they didn’t try to intercept on the way home or had someone on the docks looking for her.
I am anxious to see how this story wraps up with Rafe and to see if we can get some brotherly bonding.
