A stormy heart

Adventurous, outspoken, Payton Dixon has two passionate dreams...a clipper ship of her own and the love of Captain Connor Drake. But both seem impossibly out of reach, since her beloved captain is about to marry another, and worse, he's been given her ship as a wedding present from her traitorous father.

A thwarted love

Out to prove she has right on her side, Payton manages to unleash a scandal and ignite all sorts of trouble. As for Drake, he can't decide whether to throttle the girl he's grown up with, or make love to the beautiful woman she has become.

In this historical romance, Payton is a young girl who has finally reached the age where she must now become a respectable woman, only, she doesn't wish to be. Raised among her 3 older brothers, she has grown up sailing on trading ships and one day hopes to command a ship of her own. Payton has fallen in love with one of the captains, Conner Drake. But Drake is engaged to marry a woman he isn't in love with until Payton causes a scandal. Drake is then prisoned on a ship until Payton rescues him and they live on an island hoping that they won't be found by the kidnappers. But instead they are found by someone who's even worse, Payton's brother.

This book is really good. I loved the humor between Payton and her brothers. The suspense was really good too. It kept me reading until the very end and then I wished it wasn't over. Patricia Cabot is a great author and I'd recommend all of her books. This book is definately worth reading.
