This is the story of Lady Anne and Lord Tristan. Lord Tristan is known as Crimson Jack, captain of the Revenge. He and his brothers were held captive by their evil uncle. They escaped his clutches as young boys and each were forced to alter their lives. Tristan’s was to board a boat, which he did and made the sea his life. After he and his brothers made their way back into society, he fled back to the sea. He no longer fit in with the Ton and their expectations. They were also shunned by society.

Anne needed to say goodbye to her deceased fiancé. She hired Crimson Jack to take her to his final resting place. She kept this from Jack. His price for taking her was a kiss. She agreed so she could have her final goodbye and then re-enter society. She knew she needed to get a husband to please her father.

Tristan is a broken soul but finds his reaction to Anne, unsettling. He wants things he thinks he has no business wanting. He and Anne get to know each other a little on their voyage. When they part ways, he can’t quit thinking about her. He wants her, badly. They embark on a fling that leaves them both off kilter.

This was so enjoyable to read. Sweet and very passionate. Great primary and secondary characters you fall in love with. This was a balm to my soul as historical romance often is. I recommend this series to anyone who wants to read about broken and lost souls who find romance where they least expected it
