Devon Crandall believes Merry is in league with his greatest enemy. But that gives Cat, especially, more page time–which is a good thing. Those who do widflower like Kathleen Woodiwiss and in particular The Flame windfllower the Flower need not continue here. Now there were quite a few that I loved but I want to mention them. And did I mention fuchsia?

There is zero grovelling and Merry pretty much forgives and marries Devon on the spot no seriously, there’s a priest and everything and they literally marry an instant later. It’s a ride I love every single time. So I realize that this novel is immensely popular, and that it stands out among other earlier Romantic works as the Windlower Bitches say- Old Skool.

Earls Just Want to Have Fun. I also like that, though her attempts always seem to go wrong, she never gives up on standing up for herself, whether by trying to escape, confronting the hero with an ancient harpoon wrenched off a wall, or refusing to be cowed by the group of foul-mouthed, dangerous men she’s surrounded by. Drawing, painting, spending time in the gardens and when she can sneak out with her brother, drawing images of traitors and British spies in order to aid her brother’s cause.

There’s also all sorts of talk about how she’s lucky they’re not just raping her left and right, and it’s strongly implied that most of her new pirate friends love to rape women—they’re just leaving her alone because they like windflowdr and because she “belongs” to the hero.

But there were times when I really just wanted to see the story move along, and I was impatient with the rambling, if nicely worded, storytelling.

There’s Cat, a sexually ambiguous young man who serves on the ship. I never did figure out how I felt about him but he always either pissed me off or entertained me.
