Prize of my Heart by Lisa Norato
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.
Set in 1815 Massachusetts you can't help but fall in love with the characters in this heartwarming story. Norato did her research well as you feel you are right in the midst of the shipping industry.
This book has secrets you can't guess, there are many twists and turns that makes it a fun read even though you know there is a romance brewing. A good clean read full of biblical truths. I enjoyed it!
I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
