My Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars 


Suffering from a cruel heartbreak, Lord Philip Hamilton has been driven to seek refuge from the painful memories haunting London, and his father’s Jamaican sugar cane plantation provides just the escape he needs. Philip finds solace in his hard work and takes comfort in the fact that his distance from society ensures that his heart will be protected from future entanglements. Protected, that is, until the unexpected appearance of a mysterious woman with no memory of her past. The only clue to her identity is a necklace inscribed with a name: Anna. In a matter of weeks, this gentle, intelligent, and impossibly beautiful stranger turns Philip’s world upside down. But as the bond between the pair grows, the threat of Philip losing his heart once more is only the beginning of the dangers that await. Island renegades and a ruthless band of pirates clash in a swashbuckling battle, and it soon becomes clear that these villains may be the key to unlocking Anna’s past . . . 
My Review:

This is a companion book to a few of the others that Ms. Moore has written, but it can definitely stand alone.

Anna is aboard a ship heading for Jamaica when she falls overboard in a storm. Washing ashore, she has no memory of who she is or where she came from. Lord Philip is newly in Jamaica, managing his father's land, when Anna is discovered.

Anna is such a sweet and caring woman. I love the way she is able to stand up for those around her and has the confidence to express her opinions. Despite her situation in life, she is very smart, especially with street smarts and I love the whole pirate interaction. The pirates and feisty Anna had me laughing and completely engaged.

Lord Philip has never given though to whether he's even hungry or not. Every thought and move on his part have always been anticipated and he's never had to think. When he arrives on the plantation, he doesn't quickly realizes that not everyone is treated equally. Although in England, things are similar (servants and upper class), no one is ever abused because of their situation and I love how Philip jumps in to do what's morally right. What a good man!

Although we have two very strong people, I love how they each realize just how much they need to rely on others.  I love a story in a beautiful setting, with fantastic characters, sweet romance, and abundant lessons learned. Great job, Ms. Moore! I can't wait to see what's in store for us next!

Content: no language; very mild religious elements; mild romance; mild-moderate violence (talk of slavery and treatment of slaves done in a tasteful, educational way, without being graphic). Clean!
