Book Review - Prize of My Heart by Lisa Norato

Publisher's blurb:
Massachusetts, 1815.
Will His Love Endure Once He Learns Her Secret?
Three years ago, Captain Brogan Talvis's late wife abandoned their son, leaving no clue as to the boy's whereabouts. After searching relentlessly, Brogan discovers his son was adopted by a New England shipbuilder. And the man's daughter, Lorena Huntley, acts as loving guardian to the child.
Lorena, who hides a dark truth, finds herself falling for the handsome captain and ex-privateer who's come to secure ownership of one of her father's ships. She's unaware of Brogan's own secret when another's deceit has her sailing toward Europe against her will.
Haunted by thoughts of Lorena in peril, Brogan is compelled to choose between the boy he longs for and the woman who has captured his heart.

My Review: I actually liked this book, wasn't sure I was going to because I had read another review that wasn't raving, so expected to be underwhelmed. It had its plot twists and was interesting enough to keep me reading - always a good sign. I liked the fact that given the era a father would go to so much trouble to find his child. Men we not paticularly hands-on parents back then.

I would recommend this book to others.
