Goodreads summary

Suffering from a cruel heartbreak, Lord Philip Hamilton has been driven to seek refuge from the painful memories haunting London, and his father’s Jamaican sugar cane plantation provides just the escape he needs. Philip finds solace in his hard work and takes comfort in the fact that his distance from society ensures that his heart will be protected from future entanglements. Protected, that is, until the unexpected appearance of a mysterious woman with no memory of her past. The only clue to her identity is a necklace inscribed with a name: Anna. In a matter of weeks, this gentle, intelligent, and impossibly beautiful stranger turns Philip’s world upside down. But as the bond between the pair grows, the threat of Philip losing his heart once more is only the beginning of the dangers that await. Island renegades and a ruthless band of pirates clash in a swashbuckling battle, and it soon becomes clear that these villains may be the key to unlocking Anna’s past.

My Review

This book is simply amazing.  I was immediately taken into the story and wonderfulness that is Anna herself.  I love how she is with people, her knowledge, her kindness, and especially her love for others.  That is what starts her journey, when she is deck on a stormy night trying to locate a lost toy. I also really liked Phillip.  I was worried at first with how spoiled he was, but I was happy how he took to his new surroundings and accepted his new life in Jamaica.  I really appreciate it when author's take care in their secondary characters.  Jenny does a fabulous job with this skill.  Ezekiel, Betty, and Malachi were unforgettable.  Ezekiel especially was very special.  The pirates were a fun surprise and I would have loved to have had them around more!  I also liked how Phillip was already trying to be a better man before he met Anna, but she really helped bring out the best in him.  I would have liked to see the reactions of Anna's friends when she returned but realized that this is Anna and Phillip's story and it wasn't necessary.

5 out of 5 stars.  The last thing I appreciated in this story was the Author's Note.  I have known for awhile that Jenny is a wonderful person, but this proves it even more.
