T.L. sent me the following email:
Over at the Amazon Romance forum, a few of us have been having a devil of a
time figuring out what this darned book is. It’s historical fiction, takes
place at least partially on a ship, and the heroine disguises herself as a
boy. The captain is oblivious for at least a little while, his crew is not,
and exciting adventures ensue. We’re sure the heroine gets punished because
she does something really, really stupid that endangers the crew somehow,
and we think the crew stands up for her right before the captain starts the
punishment, claiming that they are all responsible in some way, shape or
form. The captain is frustrated by this and does not punish her. Oh, and we
think there is a sidekick, possibly named Kit.
Here are a few of the books it is NOT: Anything by Johanna Lindsey, Lady
Vixen by Shirlee Busbee, Kinley MacGregor’s Master of Seduction, Captain’s
Woman by Saliee O’Brien, and Captain Jack’s Woman by Stephanie Laurens.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
I am CONVINCED I know this. I first thought it was a Darlene Marshall book, but I was confusing a sidekick named “Kit” with a goose – easy mistake to make, right? Of course. But do you remember this one?
