He'd never let a woman ruin his beloved bachelorhood... not until he met the feisty ship captain, that is.

As lighthouse tender to two magnificent lighthouses off the Oregon coast, Arthur Hugh treasures his time spent fishing in the bay and the isolation of living in a small lumber town. He can do what he wants, whenever he wants, answering to no one. But when a little boy shows up in Spruce Hill and turns Arthur's life upside down, he begins to rethink everything that is important to him.

Bent on saving her family's floundering freight business, Captain Sarah Ballinder has problems enough of her own without having to put up with an irritating ox of a man like Mr. Hugh. Forced to work together on a lighthouse project, Sarah wonders if anything worse could happen. She never imagined she could fall for the very man she despised...

The Captain's Duty is part of the multi-author series Keepers of the Light but can be read as a standalone.


My Review: 5 Stars 

I love a story with such dynamic and opposite characters. Captain Sarah is feisty and lighthouse keeper Arthur leads a quiet life, but the thing they have in common is their individual stubbornness. When a small boy enters Arthur's life and he's forces to work with Sarah, sparks fly in numerous ways. Love tends to have a way of blooming where it may and an enemies-to-love story is just what I was in the mood for.

There are twists and turns that kept me on my toes, as well as elements of mystery, and I was captivated. I love the way these characters clash, as well as soften and mellow towards one another, but I especially love the slightly awkward, yet sweet, romantic interactions. This one is another great installment in this wonderful series.

Content: mild romance; mild religion
