From Ugly Duckling to Beautiful Swan

Illegitimate Polly Brandon has never felt like more than an ugly duckling. So she’s amazed when Hugh Philippe Junot pays her such close attention as they sail for Portugal.

Under ordinary circumstances she knows this distinguished Lieutenant Colonel of Marines would never have looked at her, but having his protection for the journey is comforting – and something more that she’s afraid to give a name to.

Should she trust what she sees in Hugh’s eyes – that she’s turned from ugly duckling to beautiful, desirable swan?

A book of two halves.

Rating By R,10/04/2012

This was really a book of two halves. The first part was really slow to build up and there was no real spark between the characters, however once they reached Portugal and they were captured by French soldiers it became quite exciting and finshed well. Overall a nice read. Seven out of ten

A corker

Rating By Sarah,14/03/2012

If this trilogy doesn't win awards, there's surely no justice! This is the third book and, amazingly, outdoes the others in sheer excitement. The two characters are thrown into an impossible situation, yet their growing tenderness for each other, their humour and fortitude, against this dangerous backdrop, make this book a very memorable winner. Highly recommended.

Wonderful!
