Sail AwaySail Away by Lee Rowan

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A collection of short stories set in the same universe as Ransom. I found them all delightful; I already love her Royal Navy officers William Marshall and David Archer, and the stories featuring Captain Smith and David's cousin Kit were just as sweet. The bonus story by Charlie Cochrane was fun, too -- I'm even willing to put up with a discussion of head lice if I'm getting the treat of a hair-combing scene!

Lee Rowan draws a great deal of her inspiration from the same sources I do, and the characters are warmly familiar and appealing. Her attention to historical accuracy is commendable, and her characters' affection for each other is strong and tender. And the two het stories at the beginning of the collection were just as satisfying as the ones of William and David. She has a good feel for how explicit a scene needs to be to serve the story.

All in all, enjoyable and satisfying romance.
