Reminiscent of the original 'bodice rippers' such as Kathleen E. Woodiwiss, Johanna Lindsay, Virginia Henley, and Bertrice Small - this novel combines all of the best elements of historical romance, time travel, and adventure into one expertly written and crafted novel. The intense love and fierce dedication of the main characters drives the romance and is supported by the HOT erotic scenes and delicious sensual detail. As if that weren't enough there are several main plots and sub-plots that interweave and enhance the slow exciting build all the way up to the final climax and it's smooth sailing all the way to the end.

It's obvious the author did her homework as the descriptions of the ships and sailing are spot on, the detail accurate, and the feeling of authenticity only adds to the credibility of the story. The main characters are drawn with great care and their personalities crafted with precise aim which immerses the reader in the novel to the point that you are engrossed. I honestly had trouble putting my Kindle down. Rogan is the seductive male hero, ideally about as perfect as you can get. Corin is all that a heroine should be - strong, independent, and intelligent but still feminine. I adored their love story.

I have to say this book for me is EXCEPTIONAL but due in part to the fabulous writing and the comparison to my favorite novel of all time - Shanna by Kathleen Woodiwiss. Dan was so much like Pitney, Rogan similar to Ruark, Corin as headstrong as Shanna, and the backdrop of the pirates and tropical isles as intriguing. I fell in love with this book and I know it's one I will return to again and again. I couldn't give the author higher praise than to say Ms. Adams is in league with some of the greatest romance writers to ever pen their stories to page.

A wonderful addition to any romance library, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Sails in Time. This is a MUST READ to be added to your list.
