I felt this story started out strong and then sort of petered out Ethan s and Samantha are travelling to Italy on a ship at the same time when an unexpected wave pushes them overboard Eventually finding themselves washed up on an island in the Mediterranean, the overt is to survive long enough to be rescued Or fall in love Or both When help finally comes it is not your typical rescuers who provide assistance Of course there is political intrigue with the Home Office and under cover agents I felt this story started out strong and then sort of petered out Ethan s and Samantha are

voluntarily review this book This is my honest review I have to say, I ve read my fair share of historical romances and this is one of the few I ve read with a shipwrecked on an island theme I found the story to be well done, although from time to time I really questioned what the characters were doing And felt that it probably could have been edited down a bit A lot of what felt like unnecessary characters were introduced or had scenes that it got a touch overwhelming It s entirely possible that these folks were in book 1, but since I haven t I have to say, I ve read my fair share of

possible that these folks were in book 1, but since I haven t read it, I don t know since there wasn t much history given.As for the narration, Mr Troughton did a fine job A few times I kinda did a double take with the pronunciation of some words, but that s probably a British vs American issue I did get a bit thrown by the special effect that happened during the internal musings of the characters, which happened a lot I found itdistracting than helpful.All in all, my first listen and read of a Linda Rae Sande book was a success and I ll most likely hunt outfrom her in the future

friend s brother They are able to survive and get back to society There is obviouslyto the story but I did not want to give away too many spoilers I read the first book in this series so I recognized a couple of characters Samantha did not get up to as many shenanigans as she did in the first book with her friends I did like the book though and will try to findfrom this author because it was a
