|Summary, etc.:||"A proper English wife, or the freedom of the sea? Lord James Gresham is the fifth son of the Duke of Langford, a captain in the Royal Navy, and at a loss for what to do next. He's made his fortune; perhaps now he should find a proper wife and set up his nursery. But the sea calls to him, while his search for a wife leaves him uninspired. And then, a dark beauty with a heart for revenge is swept into his life. He can't have both, but he won't give up either. Half-English, half-Polynesian Kawena Benson is out to avenge her father and reclaim a cache of stolen jewels. There's nothing for James to do but protest his innocence and help Kawena search for the jewels, even though it turns his world upside down."--Page 4 of cover.|

*Starred Review* For British navy captain James Gresham, it was a perfectly boring Oxford garden party until a woman disguised as a man and brandishing a pistol leaped out of the shrubbery and accused him of being a thief. It turns out that Kawena Benson believes that while James was visiting the island where she lived in Polynesia with her family, he stole a valuable cache of jewels from her father. Although it is true that James' ship, Charis, did dock at the island, he most definitely did not steal anything. It seems that the only way James can prove his innocence to Kawena is by helping her track down the real thief. With the second addition in her Duke's Sons series, following Heir to the Duke (2016), Ashford soars to new heights of literary excellence by creating a cleverly conceived story that takes all the traditional elements readers love in Regency romances and making everything seem refreshingly new. Throw in Ashford's gift for creating intriguingly different characters and her dry sense of humor, and you have a romance worth cherishing. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
