The 1600s is not my usual preference in historical fiction. I have a hard time getting into the lingo and my knowledge of pre -Dickensian England is sketchy at best. HOWEVER, once I got into the story and became used to the wording I really enjoyed it.

In a nutshell, a young man rescues a child from death and brings her home to his mother. She grows up thinking he's her brother, a famous buccaneer "Captain Lucifer". But what happens when she grows up into a lovely young woman and Kit (Captain Lucifer) falls in love with her ? What happens when her true identity becomes known and her treacherous uncle arrives to arrange her marriage and fetch her home?

Some who read this had a hard time with the "sibling love " topic present here. But I didn't and here's why : It's true, she thought Kit was her brother from the start. BUT. From the very day he brought her home as a three year old child he really wasn't in her life very much. He promptly went to sea and even after his mother died and Damaris lived with him, again he was away for months at a time. So in my opinion they hadn't built up a traditional sibling-type closeness that there would have been in normal circumstances.

In view of the foregoing, I really didn't find the romance that far fetched (more of a stretch for her than for him but still possible) and the adventure and intrigue is well developed.
So yes! although this is my very first Sylvia Thorpe book I would easily recommend it to others and read some more written by her. Its wasnt my absolute favorite book but its a solid 4 stars.

CONTENT :

SEX : None. (one kiss on the cheek. And one 'stolen ' kiss by a rogue) ignore the harlequin-ish cover)
VIOLENCE: A couple of fights (its about pirates) but mild.
PROFANITY : Mild cussing
PARANORMAL ELEMENTS : None

MY RATING : G

I skipped through and read pieces of this book before reading the whole thing and thought I wouldn't like it that much. Then I went back and read the whole thing and liked it VERY much. Sylvia Thorpe is a first-rate storyteller. It's clean--i.e. no drawn out graphic violence, obscenity, or sex scenes;, there's no hint of the supernatural in it, and the character development is very good. It's the only cover I've seen on her books where the couple is kissing passionately and does not reflect any scene I can recall from the book as I didn't notice a kissing scene in it. But that did not make it any less romantic to me. I definitely considered this one of the better Sylvia Thorpe books I have read.

I love Mercedes
Decent plot and storyline which I feel could have been developed more, to include more action and depth.

This sat on my "keeper" shelf for years. Just took it down for a reread and then giving it away. The story seemed pretty ho-hum with the dashing privateer ready to face down an evil peer of the realm and a whole ship filled with blood-thirsty pirate, but then he's afraid to put his feelings on the line with the woman he loves.

I guess the idea of the secret identity of his "sister," and the exotic location in the Caribbean made this historical romance more of a grabber back when I was 20.

The late Sylvia Thorpe wrote a variety of romances, but her best were in a serious vein and character-driven. In this one, a young English boy finds an abandoned baby, and years later is in love with her but can't reveal it because she believes he is her brother. When the past catches up with them, it is thousands of miles away, in the Caribbean, where he has become a noted buccaneer to support his family. Can he thwart the evil that has hung over the girl all her life? Thorpe's work is densely atmospheric and her writing is crafted in a careful style that is quite distinct from today's short, crisp writing. People who appreciate mid-century writers from du Maurier to Stewart will love this; those who prefer Johansen will not.

This was about a young Kit Brandon rescued a baby girl from disaster, he and his mother disguised her true identity and raised her as a family. Fifteen years later, Kit became an infamous buccaneer also known as Captain Lucifer, when Damaris' uncle, Earl of Chelsham, known as Golden Panther, a man whom some feared and hated, accidentally discovered her whereabouts. Here was where battle of wits began.

I really enjoyed this book, it had mixture of ingredients to made it an interesting read, but I particularly liked Ms. Thorpe's writing--her description of scenery, ships, events of happenings, and most of all the feelings of characters, made everything so real and touching. Especially at end of the story, I was happy to let out a sigh of contented relief. My only criticism was that I wish Damaris could take a better control of the situation, show some spirit, and be the mistress of her life, instead of been lead by her uncle and others who want to prosperous from her.

If you like wonderfully written PG-rated romance, Sylvia Thorpe is your woman. This book was strange for me because if I found out my brother was not really my brother after growing up with him, I still could never think of him romantically. Could you?

Try another book instead. I recommend "The Devil's Bondsman." You won't get my copy though, as I am keeping mine forever!
