I thought I had all Katharine Ashe's books but for some reason I didn't have this one. After re-reading In the Arms of a Marquess (Rogues of the Sea Book 3) a couple of days ago, I decided to add this book to my collection. Before I go forward with my review, I can only say that In the Arms of the Marquess is an absolutely unforgettable book. If you haven't read it, you might consider taking a look at the book's description and check out some of the reviews.
In this first book of the "Rogues of the Seas" series, we have a heroine, Valerie, who was apparently banished to America for a couple of years due to her rebellious behavior which is somewhat explained over the course of the story. It's obvious she had issues with her father - she never calls him anything but "the earl" and eventually the bits and pieces reveal further information about their...

Only one seductive detail threatens his victory: the scandalous beauty imprisoned with him, Lady Valerie Monroe.

An Undeniable Love

Then he reappears in society under his true identity, Viscount Ashford, but, despite the danger, their consuming passion cannot be denied. Now standing in the way of their desire are Valerie's wounded heart, Steven's lone destiny, and a villain who will stop at nothing to...
Read other books by her & I find her stories are entertaining. This one wasn't the best though, w/ the books I read thus far by her, Ashe seems to always make the main female character too infactuated w/ the guy. But in this one, I thought, she made Valerie too desperate for Ashford's attentions. I was thinkn to myself, "Just be patient girl, let him come to you for once!" I got sick of Ashford being two-faced about the relationship. He loves her-then he rejects her w/ rude remarks, then Val cant believe it after so many times she keeps forgiving him! Overall though, it's worth 4 stars, Ash FINALLY realizes he cant live w/o Val.
