In Eloisa James's companion story to The Ugly Duchess, Sir Griffin Barry, captain of the infamous pirate ship The Poppy, is back in England to claim the wife he hasn't seen since their wedding day . . . but this is one treasure that will not be so easy to capture.
Even with a royal pardon in hand, Sir Griffin Barry knows that returning to England will not be easy. Not as a pirate and not as the long-lost husband of Lady Phoebe Barry. Fourteen years have passed since Griffin ran from Phoebe's bed on their wedding night, and he has no idea what to expect from his homecoming: certainly not a wife who wants nothing to do with her absentee lord-or the surprises that meet him on the other side of his front door. Griffin finds that there are rough waters beyond those of the high seas, but he is willing to weather these storms to gain the treasure he left behind. Verdict James (The Duke Is Mine) once again indulges her penchant for intertwining plots and characters with this e-novella that is an offshoot of her latest title, The Ugly Duchess. This quick read brings the same passion and humor as do James's novels. Highly recommended for libraries that carry her other works.-Kristi Chadwick, Emily Williston Memorial Lib., Easthampton, MA (c) Copyright 2012.
