Two captains finding love and defending those who would threaten the peace found on Rum Cay. Captian Laith MacKay and his crew find help and refuge on Rum Cay with Captian Sadie and her people. Captian Sadie is wary of men, especially those who show an interest in her. This also includes longtime friend Ennis. Laith finds himself enamored of Sadie and wants to know her better. When the other islands’ captains threaten to take over Rum Cay, Laith, Sadie, and her chain of help will work together to stop them.
Betrayal, loss, love, and revenge can be found in this historical story, which I did enjoy reading. The only problem I had was Laith expected Sadie to say words that she did not understand. I am not certain of the timeline had passed of Laith and his crew first reached Rum Cay just before the war on the beach. If the timing was a matter of days or weeks, this feels like an insta-love on Laith’s part.
❧ I typically try not to do spoilers, but this part right here pissed me off. Ennis is supposed to be in love or want a relationship with Sadie. I think he knew what Captian Tully had done to her. I also believe that he thought that she would be a bit more amenable to his advances after she had killed the Captain. ❧
