I rated this book 4 stars. The writing was solid and readable minus some typos. It starts off slow but it has a very historical feel to it where it brings you back in the time era that it is writing in. The romance is very adventurous and very different from what I have read in the past. It was engaging to follow the characters through their adventure. It bring you to France from England where the voyage begins.
