The exiled King of Flaundia, Conrad de Fleurre, only wants his daughter to marry a fine reputable gentleman, but he had no idea what his daughter really wanted.
Daisy, the daughter of the exiled King, is just a young girl at the beginning of the book. She has strange feelings that she doesn't know how to describe, just that they feel nice. She knows that when she is in the presence of Chelsey, the cook's daughter, she has these feelings at their most intense extreme. The fact that she stutters and becomes incredibly nervous when she is around Chelsey is what clues Chelsey into the feelings that will soon blossom into romance.
As the years pass, Chelsey, a bit older than Daisy, understands her feelings as she has experienced things that Daisy doesn't even know exist. Chelsey's friendship with Daisy has also changed in her mind. From friendship to companionship, and finally to love, passion and desire. Both girls are feeling the same feelings, though keeping them bottled up as it wasn't technically right to love that of the same sex in their time period. Actually, it was forbidden, like you were a horrible zombie demon if you participated in these types of romances.
Once their attractions finally makes itself known, the girls dive into a full-fledged romantic relationship with each other as teens living in the same house. Rendezvous and trips to the barn, sneaking around after dark, and love notes are rampant. One day, when meeting for a 'roll in the hay' in the old barn, Daisy's father finds a note that she dropped telling her to meet Chelsey in the barn. He goes to see what is going on as the note was rather explicit and he finds the girls in a very compromising position. He sends Chelsey away and forces Daisy to continue living her life in his home, miserably.
At the age of twenty-five, Daisy is betrothed to Lord Humphrey, a vile man who owns a shipping company. That shipping company keeps getting their ships raided by a dreaded pirate Captain: Dread, a lady pirate that is taking the ocean by storm. Captain Dread comes up with a plan to kidnap Daisy in order to get what she wants from Lord Humphrey. Only problem is, Captain Dread is someone we all know from Daisy's younger days.
I really liked the setting of this novella. It was very interesting being in that time period, though I really like anything historical, and I can't forget the pirate life in this novella! The author did a tremendous job describing the setting; they made me feel like I was right there watching the story unfold. The dialogue was marvelous and kept the pace going.
Though I enjoyed the love scenes, the actual story in this novella could definitely stand-alone because it was jam packed with information and creativity. Do not mistake that as information dump, just that a lot happened, which was fantastic. In my opinion, the author did a wonderful job on this novella, creating a lovely mix of everything that a reader would want in a delightfully naughty read.
