Love’s Rescue by Christine Johnson
Can a girl enamored with the adventurous seas ever be content with the tame life of a Southern belle?
When her mother dies, Elizabeth Benjamin heads home to Key West, determined to transform herself into the perfect Southern belle her parents always wished her to be. But nothing goes according to plan. Her brother resents her, the servants do not obey her, and Rourke O’Malley, the dashing man she vowed to forget, refuses to relinquish his hold on her heart. Worst of all, it becomes painfully obvious that her father is not the man he appears to be.
As family secrets come to light, Elizabeth is faced with a difficult choice: to perform her duty and abandon her dreams, or to leave her life of privilege behind to chase the man her father sees as little better than a pirate.
From the first emotional page, author Christine Johnson throws you into a world of impossible choices, hidden desires, and heart-melting romance in the steamy South.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK
Her mother’s death causes Elizabeth Benjamin to return to her home in Key West, but things didn’t go as she thought it would. Though she needed her family, it seemed that they didn’t need her as much, and she sure wasn’t happy with her father’s pick as a husband for her. Was her trip back home a mistake?
Since this was my first book by Christine Johnson I wasn’t sure what to expect, and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. This book was as good as the cover is beautiful! I love the inviting cover! This was also my first story with a setting in the historical 1850’s Key West, Florida. There is a lot that makes up the plot of this story, danger, secrets, adventures seas, heart throbbing romance, and determination in the hearts of characters. Ms. Johnson does a marvelous job of weaving it all together to write a most amazing, entertaining and enjoyable story that I highly recommend. I will sure be looking for more books in this series.
