The Ransome Trilogy from exciting new author Kaye Dacus combines the wit, romance, and social commentary of Jane Austen with the sea-faring adventure of Horatio Hornblower. July 1814. The war with France has ended, and Captain William Ransome, known for never letting women aboard his ship, has returned to Portsmouth, England. Julia Witherington, considered an old-maid at 29, discovers that she must marry immediately to receive a large dowry. Julia knows that the only man she doesn't want to marry is William Ransome. And the only man her father will approve of is...William Ransome. When the couple strikes a financial deal to feign marriage for one year, the adventure begins. These stubborn people face humorous and hard situations that reveal what else they have in common-a growing affection for one another. This intriguing tale of faith and loyalty is a wonderful new offering for readers of all genres.

I found this book to be incomplete, and yes i know its the first in a trilogy but the places it was incomplete are places that will clearly not be touched in the other books. Their engagement saga was lame and not at all dramatic. It lacked the very things i picked this book up for; whit and ROMANCE... sadly there was little of both. Over all since the second novel was not set up at all and the first was awfully boring i will not bother to read the rest of this series.
