The Gift by Julie Garwood

Rating 4.5

Book Description: A child bride, Sara Winchester had grown into a winsome beauty, joyfully anticipating the day when her husband Nathan, Marquess of St. James, would return to claim her heart at last. Charmingly innocent, she dismissed the ancient feud that divided Nathan's family from her own...and she was totally unaware of his past exploits as the notorious pirate, Pagan. The man who now stood before her was perplexing, arrogant and powerfully handsome...a warrior-gentleman whose gentle touch aroused her to the wildest, deepest pleasures of love.
Nathan had never bared his soul to any woman, but he was soon utterly beguiled and exasperated by Sara's sweet, defiant ways. Aboard his ship, The Seahawk, she was brave, imperious and determined to win his heart completely -- yet upon their return to England, her love would be sorely tested as a vile conspiracy tried to tear them apart. With their future at stake, they would discover the true destiny of their passion...for all time!

Julie Garwood is author I have recently re-discovered. I don't usually laugh out, but there were some parts of this book that were laugh out loud funny. One of my favorite part was when Sara tried to light a fire on a ship!! Also when she made the soup. All of secondary characters that were mostly Nathan's crew were great.
The only thing that stop this from being a 5 was it took Nathan little to long to realize that he loved Sara.
I can't wait to read Castles with Colin's story.
