I have covid so I am too miserable to write a review right now, but this Emma reimagining (or really a Clueless reimagining) is bad. Howard loses track of who doesn't want to marry (Vesper insists she does not want to marry, then Aspen says he is sorry he can't marry her as she wants.) She peppers conversation with wildly anachronistic language. Did it occur to anyone that people in the 19th century would not say "mind-blowing " or refer to masturbation and orgasm. Also things happen for no reason. She needed to rein in some topics. The whole side story of Vesper trying to hook up the housekeeper with her father's man of affairs is terribly written and distracting.… (mais)

Any Duke in a Storm by Amalie Howard
Daring Dukes series #4. Historical romance, own voices. Can be read as a stand-alone.
Famed spy, Lady Lisbeth Medford is in disguise as a notorious pirate captain, Bonnie Bess. Her mission is to capture the Prince of Smugglers. After quickly leaving Tobago in the British West Indies, she finds her quartermaster has hired a new sailing master. And he’s entirely too confident.
Raphael Saint, the Duc de Viel, has plenty of sailing experience but it’s usually as Captain of his own ships. Family treachery has Saint escaping prison and boarding the first ship leaving Tobago to try find proof of his uncle’s lies. Finding a female captain that can shoot and fight with precision and skill isn’t necessarily a surprise as her reputation has to have some truth behind it. It’s the passion and caring he sees behind the mask that has him intrigued and more than a little enamored.
Bess and Saint find a common goal and it’s drawing them together as neither expected.

Excerpts I had to highlight:
Captain, smuggler, spy or temptress?
“Unlike Bonnie Bess who was made of blades and thorns, Lisbeth seemed to be made of melody and moonlight.”

Duke, pirate or hero?
“Honestly, why don’t all the novels say that being a hero is exhausting? Being a villain is so much easier. No damsel, no demands, no precious virtue to be ruined, no waking up at ungodly hours, and being plied within incessant questions.”

Absorbing and intricate storytelling. This story will leave you breathless. Between the danger on the seas, the pirates, the family betrayals, the heroes trying to do better, and the undeniable passions, it’s a wild ride of adventure.

Be sure to read the Author Notes at the end of the book. The research and details are impressive and tell the background of many of the characters and how they apply in the story and in real life. I also love the intelligence within the writing. I highlighted a half a dozen words such as “jocund” that were new to me.

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley and the publisher.
