I write award-winning historical romance about pirates, privateers, smugglers and the occasional possum.

Destined to Last - Alissa Johnson This has been sitting on my TBR shelf for ages, and I'm glad I finally picked it up. I wasn't aware it was the last book in a connected series, but that doesn't interfere with the enjoyment of the story. Andrew Hunter is an agent for the War Department, Lady Kate is a lovely earl's daughter known for her great beauty and extreme clumsiness. I enjoyed how their story developed, how Hunter knew what he wanted and his methods for pursuing it. Even the reasons for Kate's clumsiness made great sense and added to the character's personality.I believe this was the first novel by Ms. Johnson I've read, but I'll keep my eyes open for more from her in the future.
