Description: An unsolved mystery separates ex-privateersman Captain Brogan Talvis from his lost son--his only living relation, his only family. Shortly before her tragic demise, his wife abandoned their infant to strangers, refusing to reveal the child's whereabouts. Now, three years later, Brogan has discovered the boy at the home of a shipbuilder's daughter, Lorena Huntley. Lorena guards a dark secret about her young charge. She finds herself falling for the heroic captain who has come to claim his newly built ship, unaware his motive for wooing her is to befriend the boy he plans on reclaiming as his own--until the day another's evil deceit leaves her helplessly shipbound, heading toward England. As the perfect opportunity to reclaim his son unfolds, Brogan is haunted by thoughts of Lorena in her dire circumstance, and he is forced to make a heartrending choice between his child and the woman who has begun to capture his heart. But only his unselfish sacrifice can win him the greatest prize of all--love
I love my Kindle! I have all these books I have gotten for free, just waiting for me to read. Prize of My Heart was one of those free books. One day, I decided to read a book from an author I had never read before.
Lorena was my favorite character. I loved her sweetness and faith. All the characters were good, but Lorena captured my heart.
The setting was amazing. Lisa Norato did an amazing job of making me feel like I could see the ocean and the wharfs in my mind. Her descriptions put me in the places. I can still picture the launch of the ship, the grand house, and Lorena’s cabin as she was sailing home.
I enjoyed this mix of suspense, mystery, and romance. Nothing felt overdone, and it kept me turning pages until the end.
Can I give five stars just for the cover? So pretty, and it fit the book.
I recommend this book for anyone who likes light reads that keep you turning pages.
