Rating 8/10
Against his better judgment, Captain Robert Clifford has agreed to transport Lady Eleanor Seymour and her maid to the Grand Bahamas, but payment is always a great inducement. Besides, she would be aboard a week and then out of his hair. Captain Clifford commands his ship as if it were a Navy vessel, although she’s a privateer, ready to waylay any Spanish or French ship that crosses her path. Unfortunately, those countries also maintained their own privateers, and the Caribbean was their playground.

Lady Eleanor is a spoiled, self-centred young woman who doesn’t know the first thing about people, used more to bossing them around than watching or learning from them. Until she runs afoul of the captain’s temper.

Captain Clifford, contending with the trials of navigating and keeping watch for other pirates, has better things to do than worry about the havoc his young passenger plays on his crew, so, despite his other pressing obligations, Clifford takes it upon himself to teach Eleanor that she won’t be acting the rich pampered brat on his ship.

‘The Captain’s Ladies’ is a delightful, old-fashioned adventure tale set on the high seas, one filled with action and romance, suspense and surprise. Ms. Nash has created an endearing hero and fallible heroine who grows and learns through the course of the book. The sparks fly between the captain and his lady, not only the one who sits upon the water, but also the one who manages to work her way into his heart. A fun and invigorating read, filled with an exciting plot, witty dialog and wonderfully fleshed out characters. This tale is truly a treat!
