Swept Up by the Sea is a humorous, light romance revolving around the
adventures of one Percival Taylor and Tuppence Magrathia-Paddock.
Percival arrives in Blackshore determined to become a pirate and have
gentlemanly adventures. However, despite his best efforts every pirate
ship in port rejects him, yet he persists in sneaking on board. In his
efforts to defend himself from the pirates he inadvertently rescues
Tuppence. Tuppence is convinced that Percival is a 'rogue' and
fantasizes about him. When Tuppence is kidnapped Percival sets out to
rescue her in his own rather bumbling way. If you are looking for a
serious romance with a great deal of depth this is probably not for you.
But if like me you enjoy a light humorous fantasy where the
hero/heroine are likeable but inept than I can heartily recommend this
I am currently working as a elementary school librarian which I love. I enjoy sharing books on my blogs of which I have two (Geo Librarian and LDS and Lovin' it). I also review for School Library Journal.
