Alex Beecroft has taken us back to a part of history that is active and instead of ignoring the action she writes it and writes it well! She balances life at sea as a soldier with the pain of secrets and impossible love. She also includes a tiny bit of religion which is what I come back and read over and over to see at the end. Our main character says (SPOILERS) that the physical love he finds with his partner is how bodies were supposed to be connected and that bit calls out to me.
The story is consecutive and moves along well it gives you a bit of action and romance.

So far, this is probably still my favorite of Alex's romance novels. There's so much historical detail here, but it doesn't overwhelm the romance at all. In fact, this is a novel I need to reread, I think. :-)
