Sunday's Spotlight: My Enemy, My Heart

 My Enemy, My Heart (The Ashford Chronicles #1)
The sea is Deirdre MacKenzie’s home, and the crew of her father’s Baltimore clipper is the only family she loves. She’s happier wearing breeches and climbing the rigging of the Maid of Alexandria than donning a dress and learning to curtsy. But when the War of 1812 erupts, the ship is captured by a British privateer, leaving her father, the captain, dead. Deirdre watches her crew herded into the hold, destined for the notorious Dartmoor prison in England. Though her fate as a noncombatant is uncertain, she knows she must find a way to free her crew.

Kieran Ashford has caused his family one too many scandals. On his way to exile in America, he is waylaid by the declaration of war and a chance to turn privateer and make his own fortune. But he regrets his actions as soon as the rich prize is secured. Now his best chance at redeeming himself in the eyes of his family is to offer Deirdre the protection of his name in marriage.

But love and loyalty clash as Kieran begins to win Deirdre’s heart despite her plot to betray him. Will Kieran’s plan mend the relationship with his family, and can this fated couple find true love despite the secret lies between them?

 My Thoughts: I found this book after winning a Goodreads Kindle giveaway for book two in this series. I Don't like reading a series out of order, so I instantly went looking for the first book. I'm happy to say I found that both the ebook and audio versions are available on KU so now I have both for the time being. (And will likely buy both soon!) So far Deirdre's father has died, she's been found out by the privateer, and her crew's in chaos. A great start to an interesting story! I'm excited to find this series, and look forward to learning more about Deirdre's journey!
