The Captain and the Best Man by Catherine Curzon & Eleanor Harkstead
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
To quote Captain Guy, that was just gorgeous.
I love this series from Catherine and Eleanor but this one’s just sneaked into top spot, pushing out The Captain and his Cricketer into a still respected second place.
The plot of this one isn’t necessarily the most likeliest of scenarios but you know what, I just didn’t care.
I fell in love with Guy and Josh just as quickly as they did with each other. There’s nothing I love more than a good swoon worthy hero and Guy Collingwood fit the bill completely.
The drama is family centric and does rely on a bit of plot convenience but, again, I really didn’t care.
I just wanted to watch Guy and Josh get wrapped up in each other and in their beautiful Caribbean island.

Captain Merric by Rebecca Cohen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I’d have been a brilliant pirate I reckon, which is probably why the Golden Age of piracy fascinates me so much and why I absolutely loved every bit of this historical romance.
While I didn’t read the original form of Captain Merric when he first appeared as part of a pirate anthology, I’m delighted to have got the chance to read this version.
It’s packed with clever plotting, great narrative, gorgeous dialogue and beautifully descriptive writing which conjures up brilliant azure blue skies over emerald green seas dotted with bleached white sandy beaches and a lush tropical paradise filled with colourful characters.
I loved Daniel and his long lost love Edward, and while this is only moderately steamy, it still has enough emotional and sexy moments to keep me happy.
