My Heart's Desire by Andrea Kane - Review and Giveaway

I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review

Published: September 20, 2016
Number of pages: 402
Genre: Romance
Series: Barrett Family #1

Lady Alexandria Cassel scorned London's frivolous social whirl, seeking adventure as a stowaway aboard a merchant ship. Drake Barrett was the vessel's powerful captain—and a cynical duke who disdained a noble's shallow life. At sea he revealed neither his origins nor his wealth, and to Alexandria he was simply a man who made her cool reserve fly with the winds… whose desire for her was as wild as the ocean they sailed.

Caught in the crossfire of war, they were shipwrecked on an idyllic island, where they tasted perfect passion… and tenderness. But Drake dreaded the day of their rescue—when his love would discover that the virile man she adored was at the pinnacle of the aristocracy she despised. Hardly did they suspect the base treachery that would soon threaten them… and the dangers each would brave to join forever their hearts and lives!

What did I think of this book:
This is the first book that I have read by this author. I thought it was a nice and enjoyable romance book. I liked the setting of this book. When historical romance books take place on a ship it just adds a little for me. It was fun watching Alex and Drake start out becoming friends and then even more. You have to appreciate Alex's desire to not be a part of "society" so much so that she jumps on a ship and is a stowaway to get away from it all. I don't know if I would have been able to do that. I liked how this book pulled me in on the first page and held my attention until the very end. I am looking forward to the second book in this series.
