When her mother dies, Elizabeth Benjamin heads home to Key West, determined to transform herself into the perfect Southern belle her parents always wished her to be. But nothing goes according to plan. Her brother resents her, the servants do not obey her, and Rourke O'Malley, the dashing man she vowed to forget, refuses to relinquish his hold on her heart. Worst of all, it becomes painfully obvious that her father is not the man he appears to be.
As family secrets come to light, Elizabeth is faced with a difficult choice: to perform her duty and abandon her dreams, or to leave her life of privilege behind to chase the man her father sees as little better than a pirate.
This is another one of those books that can be read in a day and is perfect for a day on the beach or a day in front of the fire. You don't have to concentrate to hard to keep up with the story, but there are twists and turns in the book to keep you interested. It's no surprise the outcome, but there are one or two surprises along the way to get there.
This is the first in the series "Key's of Promise", and there is a sneak peek at the second in the series at the back of this book and it too seems like it will be well worth reading.
Stars out of 5 : 3 I will probably not remember this book next week, but it passed an afternoon or two reading it . As books go it was okay.
