The "Governor" is John Inglis, a keen Clyde-based yachtsman, and is a humorous reference to his lack of authority on a boat. He relates the delights of sailing for pleasure around the Inner Hebrides of Scotland between the Clyde and Skye, on the West Coast. Based on four short cruises he made in the Scottish summers from 1873-1876, sailing in a bigger boat each year. Told with humour, the work describes the life and times, the beauty of the environment and the challenging waters of the West Coast in the days before diesel engines and marinas.

This captivating tale takes place on the open ocean as America evolves from the conservative 1950s to the free-loving 1960s.

In a frantic battle for his life, he relies on his wit and his memories to face the challenges of the sea, and those within his own mind. Left at Hiva Oa is an incredible story of determination: the determination to dream; to stand by your principles; and to stay alive, when all you have is yourself.

Nicole Jordan’s irresistible Legendary Lovers series continues in this sizzling twist on My Fair Lady, as a bewitching beauty and a rakish sea captain trade favors . . . and tempt fate. Lady Katherine Wilde believes she has crushed any lingering romantic feelings toward Brandon Deverill, who spurned her six years ago. And now that the rough-edged rogue needs polishing to claim his inheritance, she’s willing to strike a practical bargain: Kate will mold the brash privateer into an acceptable English nobleman if Deverill will safeguard her from brigands on a voyage to recover lost family treasure. However, the soul-melting kiss that seals their agreement just may reignite blazing passion. Brandon’s fortitude was sorely tested when he turned Kate away from his bed all those years ago. Even a rake such as he wouldn’t seduce an innocent beauty before sailing into battle. But now that he’s inherited a title and must take a suitable bride, he sets his sights on Kate. Though he fiercely desires her, true love is a notion that baffles him—until their adventure turns perilous and Brandon realizes he’d gladly trade his life to save the woman who has captured his heart. Praise for My Fair Lover “There’s [Nicole] Jordan’s signature humor, a high degree of sensuality, emotional depth and deep sighs galore. This is Jordan at her best.”—RT Book Reviews “With her latest entrancing tale in her Legendary Lovers series, Jordan puts a sexy twist on Pygmalion, and her flair for fusing smoldering love scenes with a plot spiked with action and danger makes her book a must-read for fans of old-school historical romances by the likes of Kathleen Woodiwiss and Judith McNaught.”—Booklist “Nicole Jordan is a powerhouse when it comes to historical romances. In this story I was expecting another fabulous Regency romance, which I got. But I also got so much more.”—Night Owl Reviews “A beautifully crafted adventure filled with passion and peril. . . . Readers will savor this splendid installment of a consistently strong series.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review) “Gay repartee and an exciting exploration of a sunken ship, My Fair Lover will hit all the high marks for an unforgettable read this month.”—Romance Reviews Today “A romantic and enjoyable read with intelligent and likable protagonists, and it makes for a satisfying and entertaining read.”—Fresh Fiction
