Grade: B-She was cold and he warmed her. She was hot and he cooled her. He was of her and she was of him and there seemed no place that they were separate or solitary in the heady secrets of the flesh.The happy couple....Asher Wellingham is the Duke of Carisbrook. Emma Seaton is a lady — or is she???The set-up....He sees her swimming naked in a cove. You do the math.The conflicts....Pirates.The romance....In between all the piratical plot shenanigans, there’s some pretty good chemistry.The recommendation....Kind of all over the place story-wise, but I re-read it solely for the backstory of the duke’s younger brother, hero of the next book in the series.
