Probably one of my favorties in the series.
Funny exciting adventure of 6 "problem" children from all walks of life, sent off to a "ship boot camp" by their parents to learn to conduct themselves respectfullly, work as a team. So much for that! If you like the tv show survivor, you might like this easy to read tale.
Ah, the good old amnesia plot of romance novels! Why mess with the classics? No reason I can think of since the basic plot was quite enjoyable. The villains were interesting, there was believable tension between the characters and even the amnesia made sense somehow. Now why only two stars then? Firstly, the leading lady in this story has no character. She loves her husband, she loves her adoptive kids, she loves cooking... every chapter even begins with a bit from her cooking book. The fact that she loves cooking and other homemaking chores is mentioned several times by many characters, yet it still remains a shallow part of her character. It's never explored why she loves cooking so, how did she learn that skill as a noblewoman, doesn't she have any other interests? As such the poor woman comes across as one-dimensional and angelic...you know the type of romance novel heroine who wins the hero's love by being a good, simple woman who only needs protection and a nice kitchen? That leads to my second grievance. Mostly I liked the hero, he wasn't the boring valiant type, but instead had made his share of mistakes. Being amnesiac and all he had some trouble remembering why he would want to marry this cooking-obsessed lady. If only he would have discovered the answer to that question! Instead he just suddenly decides that he loves her and that's it. What sparked this sudden love remains a mystery and that just bugs me. It leaves me with the feeling that the hero is not in love with a real woman, but instead a cardboard add for a kitchen appliance. Whatever will he do when she's blown away on a windy day?
