#Nautical #Romance

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Learned about sailing a tall ship and some maneuvering tactics.

A delightful give and take relationship between Sally Kent and David Colyear. I was smiling, blushing, and crying as I read their journey.

All turns out well in the end ❤️

A reread for me of this delightful novel in anticipation of my very own tall ships voyage tomorrow!

We have all the catnip - girls dressed as boys acting as midshipman (and competent at it!) On a Navy ship...

I loved this book, and my inner history nerd is freaking out. The author knows her maritime history, and vividly captured what life on a ship was like. The life of a sailor was hard; while there's a beautifully written live story, the hero and heroine endure grit, war, and personal politics on board the vessel, which makes their coming together even more satisfying. I want to read the other books in this series. #romantsy #history
