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 . .
Whenever I pick up a Jennifer Moore book I know I'm going to love it. And I have never been disappointed. Once again I thoroughly enjoyed Jennifer's characters, plot, and writing. Philip and Anna are both loveable characters who I cheered for from the first page. Admittedly the slave parts were hard to read but the author handles them well and the fact is it was a part of life in Jamaica at that time, so it wouldn't have been right to ignore it. I appreciated the way that Philip and Anna came to grips with the whole slave thing. Perhaps they were ahead of their time, but when I read historical books, I like to read about people who are ahead of their time. It was also fun to catch a glimpse of characters from previous books that I loved (Lord and Lady Lockwood, etc.) Jennifer Moore will continue to be one of my favorite writers.
