Better than the last one of hers that I read. I wish she would build out the endings a bit more. They seem to just stop and leave you wondering about the other side stories that were going on along the way.

I liked the urgency of the shipping - could not wait to read the book. I love Jane Feather's stories and this book lived up to my expectations.

Wow, I will say spoiler alert because there is no way I can review this book without referring to actions in the book. First, this spoiled brat objects to slave families being separated and sold, but doesn't object to the lifestyle that slaves afford her and constantly refers to leaving her clothes right on the floor because Tabitha will get them. I think Feather was going for a Scarlett O'Hara type personality here, but it certainly doesn't endear her to the readers. Next, she truly never thinks of anyone around her, that her being free and independent is the most important thing, well, tell that to the slaves while you do nothing to fight for their freedom in the 1800's when many underground railroad and abolitionist groups were established. Seems she only likes to rock the boat of Creole society when it affects her. Then she is constantly crumpling whenever she feels Dominic is treating her like a mistress or whore but then when he wants to marry her, she says no, it is more important that you are free and we will just live together There was a whole thread of where he had them meet and have sex at his mistress's house (yeah he owned it but he had her installed there) and she goes to the voodoo people and that whole line just suddenly gets dropped cause he kicks her out of the house (I am sure she went quietly and didn't try to get any further revenge).Then Dominic is supposed to be our "hero" yet he lets his crew live in squalid conditions below deck and frees Napoleon from Elbe for money. Yeah, all I can say is that these two deserved each other. Dominic treats her like dirt, then realizes what he says sounded like and was misinterpreted and runs back and apologizes to her. And when he jumps in at the last minute to save her from 4 men who were about to gang rape her and then dispose of her, he thinks it is enough punishment that they are striped naked, tied together and left outside; really? I thought if 4 "gentlemen" were about to rape my supposed love and I were a fearsome privateer (we constantly hear how people back away from his turquoise icy star), I would have hacked off their cajones and jammed them into their mouths before I left them naked and tied together in the street. I gave it a second star because there were areas where I could enjoy reading the story for a while and could only hope this was an early early book.

Quick Summary:
Privateer Dominic Lacroix has revenge on aristocratic Creole Society in mind because he wasn't allowed to marry a non-Creole youth love of his and lives many world wind adventures on the high seas aboard the Danseuse. He has made a name for himself both in merchant trade and in courtesan bedrooms throughout 1814 New Orleans. He seeks navigational and trade route opportunities through one plot of plantation lands belonging to the Latour Family, and he has set his eyes on getting his ways by compromising Elise Latour; the eldest daughter of the very strict and unwavering plantation owner, Victor Latour.

Genevieve Latour, the youngest of the Latour children (now 18) gets wind of Dominique's devious plan and his blackmailing schemes and decides that her delicately already engaged older sister is not too clever and extremely gentle and fragile when it comes to life, and decides to thwart Dominic's plans every chance she gets. She takes her sister Elise's place one night when she was supposed to meet Dominic for more flirtatious and clandestine rendezvous and gets herself mistakenly "abducted" by Dominic's right-hand man- Silas. That night, Dominic immediately sees deep passion and desire in Genevieve's eyes and tries to teach her a lesson to scare Genevieve off, but little he is prepared when Genevieve reacts to his manhandling seduction of her person and accepts his taking her virginity. From here on out, Genevieve and Dominic begin their world-wind romance in New Orleans and aboard the high seas-- and all the way to Vienna and France where Napoleon is plotting to regain control of the Empire.

Character & Plot Review:
This story was fast paced with lots of action and suspense; I could never outguess the story as I usually do. Dominic is very strong minded and very much in charge of himself and others. I was totally infatuated with this character because although he seemed to be a bit rough and tough with Genevieve, his maturity and determination to be a cunning merchant and privateer captain was extremely commendable. He was truly the all-out action packed hero in one character. He wouldn't bend to Genevieve's immature hysterics and childish behavior and although in time he does come to fall in love with her to the point of wanting to marry again, he held true to his character traits and never failed or turned into a soft floppy character. He was harsh sometimes and was a bit strong in his handling of Genevieve's childish outbursts, but he has to take full credit of finally transforming her into a more mature person by the end of the book. There is quite a bit of an age difference between these two lovers; we are only given Genevieve's age (she is 18), but given all of Dominic's experiences and long ago marriage, he had to have been close to his thirties if not a little bit over.

I have mixed feelings about Genevieve, and all I can say is that I will give her the benefit of the doubt given her age. She was indeed extremely immature and childish to the point that when she didn't get her way in matters, she would recluse into a locked up shell as her way of protesting when she wasn't in agreement to a certain issues. Yes, her father was very strong with her, to the point of locking her up in her room for days on end and even lifting his hand to her, but Genevieve never exercised caution and was a bit too rebellious for her age. It seemed that she would rebel to almost every single issue and this became too repetitive throughout the story. Dominic was the only one to get through to her, and at times it was mostly through their lovemaking that he kept tearing away at her immature layers. Thus, it took a hard time for me to buy into the authenticity of the romance and I kept wondering why on earth would this extremely rough, tough and very mature character ever see in his little "sprite"-- as he kept calling her. It seemed as if Genevieve was Dominic's little project for character transformation throughout the entire story, hence making Genevieve come across as a bit too ridiculously foolish at times. She played ridiculous games with her European admirers and would say things that only a very experienced woman of great promiscuity would say, thus making her at times appear too old for age and then trumped by yet another immature and childish behavior resulting in too much of a character swing for my taste. She was too brisk, rough and although very much in love with Dominic, managed to remain too impulsively immature to the bitter end.

The ending was a bit rushed, but that is what readers will get when the author didn't want to end the story much sooner; once our couple escaped the imminent threat and they continued their journey, the author had a villainous revenge casted on our lovers to bring us into another abduction & rescue climactic ending.

The couple do share a very heated romance and the pages do sizzle each and every time they come together, but poor Dominic always has to "stroke and tame the wildcat" because she is all over the place with her childish outbursts full of drama and unnecessary confusions.

I don't even know how I managed to finish this extremely tiresome book. Neither of the main characters have any redeeming qualities. Genevieve is completely self-centered, and Dominick is an emotionless, dominating bully. The "history" parts are sketchy at best...the Battle of New Orleans is described in about 3 sentences, despite what the description on the back cover leads the reader to believe. There are plenty of other far more readable Feather books out there...either her writing or her editor improved vastly...so pick one of those. Don't bother with this trash.
