Intriguing I don't understand why all of the comments written about this book are so negative. I was fascinated from the first and felt that Cosimo evolved into a sensative and loving hero. If you love the writing of Jane Feather, as I do, you will enjoy this story.
the worst jane feather book ever!
this was the worst jane feather book ever, and i have read most of her books. i've been slightly disappointed here and there but never like this! this book was terrible!. it was boring, it went on for days with nothing happening. by chapter 3 i was thinking "when is something going to happen?" by chapter 10 i was thinking "this is crap! and i want my money back!" save yourself some money. i think i'm so disappointed because i bought and enjoyed "almost a bride". it was good! so i was looking forward to this one. what a waste of money! jennifer jones phila, paUnfortunately, Just Bad. It seems that Jane Feather books are really good or really bad, and this one is BAD. Neither character is enjoyable. The plot kicks in somewhere around page 300; before that is just boring talk about the ship. The heroine is apparently a sex-crazed idiot who's willing to sacrifice her own safety in order to "enjoy" a man she's known for days. This same man basically kidnapped her, lied to her, and she suspects (rightly so) that he is a cold-blooded murderer. So by all means abandon your worried friends and family for "adventure." Just stupid.
