As for Felicite the heroine , her co-dependent persona, and Princess syndrome slacked off by the end of the book, and I truly felt as though she could handle her own.
Brava, ladybird! Courageous for picking up a sword, having never done so before, and immediately took-on trained blade-masters; a bit farfetched, however--decidedly acceptable. View all 10 comments. In the process for digitization of her old HR titles, Jennifer Blake has refrained from "modifying" her old titles to make them politically correct. Fans of vintage HR , we kiss your ring! Therefore, I must issue the warning that there is un-pc content in this book.

Jennifer Blake due to mad research skillz, in the days long before the Internet, manages to transport me to the location and time-period by including current events. She gives the reader and excellent sense of life in New Orleans. The story takes place when the Louisiana colony changes from France to Spain and includes detail of all of the tensions and resistance caused by Spanish occupation of a colony populated by people who see themselves as Frenchman.
Once the action moves to an unpopulated island in the caribbean, there is even detail about ship's maintenance tasks such as "careening. I would still read more of Jennifer Blake 's old romances and I intend to download the next one in this Louisiana collection of her romances.

This book is a great favorite of a couple of friends her on GR who like me, share a love for old HR titles, but this just didn't thrill me as I had hoped it would. Feb 02, Regan Walker rated it it was amazing Shelves: 5-star-reads. It is and the former French colony of New Orleans is seething with unrest and violence after the Spanish take over. She must save them, even if it means offering her company to the arrogant mercenary Lt. At first, all the handsome Irish mercenary asks is her company in public to demonstrate the Spanish are willing to make friends with the local women, though even that opens the young unmarried girl to criticism and harsh rumor.
But then her adoptive brother Valcour Murat a real cad escapes and attempts to kill McCormack. McCormack, convinced Felicite was a part of the plot, takes his revenge and rapes her. She refuses. But one night, when all hope for her father is gone, she disguises herself as a lad and flees with her adoptive brother on a ship called the Raven--bound, she believes, for her homeland in France. This is a classic bodice ripper and very well written with lots of intrigue, action and history.
I loved it. Blake seamlessly weaves into the romance the facts of the Spanish rule in New Orleans and the pirate culture that existed in the Caribbean. Her writing reflects a deep knowledge of ships, sea battles and sword fighting the latter which kept me biting my nails. Her characters are vivid and I promise you will not want to put this one down. If you like alpha male heroes who must suffer for their misdeeds to win the love of a heroine who is noble but misjudged and I do , this one is for you! I recommend it. This novel is a part of a 3-novel boxed set, Louisiana History Collection, Part 1.
I have trouble putting the hero's personality and behaviors together.

I read the aversion and disgusted outrage spewed by several regarding the rape. How short -sighted they are in my opinion. Yes, there is a rape scene, and, yes, it is an integral part of of this amazing plot. Not all romance novels must fit in the box without going outside the lines of rigid rules of sexual conduct.
How boring reading would be if all plots were regulated and held within stringent standards of our own personal mo Exciting romance! How boring reading would be if all plots were regulated and held within stringent standards of our own personal moral codes. I'm not saying I condone rape, either! But rape occurs every day. And in this case we are reading a "historical fiction" book where the actions and morals of the time were much different. Men were macho and women were basic objects, chattel, property, second-class citizens to be pampered, used as barter and collateral, forced into marriages of convenience by their own loving fathers and slaves to a male-run world.

So we cannot expect our puritanical viewpoint to close our minds and limit our knowledge. So I say "poo" on all those who chose to write their limited and narrow-minded reviews without reading the entire book. It's a very good book, rich in history, romance and adventure. The writing is very good as is the plot. The actions of the characters are believable given the historic timeframe and the romance sizzles.
I wholeheartedly recommend to readers of historic fiction. Great book! I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Jennifer Blake, as always injects this story with a healthy dose of history and intrigue. Felicite, the heroine, is a somewhat spoiled merchant's daughter. She has a creeper brother he was adopted as a teen and an imprisoned father. In comes Colonel Morgan McCormack. Oh is he delicous. He sets his sites on the beautiful I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
He sets his sites on the beautiful Felicite and relentlessly courts her and seeks her out. She despises him because he is on France's side, and she is a colonist.
Using her Father's imprisonment as blackmail, Morgan convinces Felicite to be seen in public with him, thus turning her colonist friends against her. Mayhem ensues. Her turd brother sticks his nose where it doesn't belong. Morgan rapes Felicite out of anger over a what he thinks is a plan she was involved in to kill him.
She then becomes his willing mistress.
