Book Description: Suffering from a cruel heartbreak, Lord Philip Hamilton has been driven to seek refuge from the painful memories haunting London, and his father’s Jamaican sugar cane plantation provides just the escape he needs. Philip finds solace in his hard work and takes comfort in the fact that his distance from society ensures that his heart will be protected from future entanglements. Protected, that is, until the unexpected appearance of a mysterious woman with no memory of her past. The only clue to her identity is a necklace inscribed with a name: Anna. In a matter of weeks, this gentle, intelligent, and impossibly beautiful stranger turns Philip’s world upside down. But as the bond between the pair grows, the threat of Philip losing his heart once more is only the beginning of the dangers that await. Island renegades and a ruthless band of pirates clash in a swashbuckling battle, and it soon becomes clear that these villains may be the key to unlocking Anna’s past . . .
My thoughts: Jennifer Moore has done it again. She has created another book that captured my imagination and kept me wanting to read.
This book has some characters show up from past books that I loved. While they are present in the story, it is not necessary to read the other books before reading this one. It was just a pleasure for me to catch up with them a little bit.
Anna is a wonderful character. She is smart and kind. She is able to use her intelligence in all situations she finds herself in. It is always wonderful to have a strong female lead.
Phillip is put in a tough situation. He has inherited a plantation in Jamaica. The plantation uses slaves. I loved that Phillip didn't stand back and let the status quo remain. He showed respect and compassion to his workers. This was far from customary, but it was one of the qualities that I found admirable about him.
This book isn't very long. It is about 200 pages. It is a book to that can be read quickly and savored. It is a clean romance.
