A great historical that despite the length (more than 450 pages) was quite easy to go down, like a smooth glass of water. It's for sure less romance and more high sea adventures, and considering the pirate them, it was in a way old fashioned like the historical setting, but considering my being an aficionado of vintage things, that was a plus to me. Moreover, even if this is far from being a breeches rippers, the romance between Kit and Griffin was hot enough to satisfy also the romantic reader that is in me.

I have to admit, I'm not an huge fan of the setting, while I know it's extremely popular, especially among the UK readers, and also considering the best historical novels are about this theme; that is the reason why I was maybe a little reluctant to start this specifically novel. But it was highly recommended by different friends, so I almost "forced" myself to read it, and was I happy I do. It wasn't long that the usually boredom of reading about ships and officers and co was soon forgotten, and instead I was enthralled in understanding Kit and Griffin, their reasons, the almost rude courtship Griffin was clearly moving on Kit, and Kit not even realizing it.

My favor is of course on Griffin, cause he was more open about his desires, but it's also true that he didn't give many chances to Kit to understand loving him wasn't a so huge betraying of everything he believed as true and right. But indeed I recognize Griffin in such attitude, it's another way to destabilize Kit, and in doing so, having him fall for the trap love he is preparing.
