Viscount Steven Ashford goes by many identities and only few know his true one. He uses each for a purpose and that one is to find a criminal and punish him. What he did not think would happen is the beautiful Valerie Monroe walking onto his ship in the heart of danger. He is dressed as a clergy and must keep the charde up or all is lost.
Valerie Monroe needs to get back home. She winds up on a ship which is held captive by a vile man. A man of the cloth saves her and tempts her at the same time but all is not what it appears to be. Valerie will be betrayed by the man as she find his true identity or one of many. Her heart is already in pieces as he tramples upon it but she will be able to pick up the pieces. She will find the solution as she becomes involved in the very plot Steven was hiding from her.
As far as a plot goes it was good. There was interesting turn of events but I was not floored by this book. Swept Away By A Kiss by Katherine Ashe is well written and the sensual parts were steamy. I think with Steven Ashfords ever changing attitude was a little confusing and frustrating that it turned me off as a reader at times which was truly for me the only problem.
The continuous plot of sabotage was interesting to read and you wondered how it would end and who would be caught in the cross fire.
