He wanted no woman, except one made of sails and wood and wind ...
Handsome, wily Irish privateer Captain Brendan Jay Merrick is running from a painful past -- and fighting for a new nation's future when he arrives in the colonial town of Newburyport, Massachusetts, with plans for shipwright Ephraim Ashton to build his magnificent new schooner. Brendan's daring sea battles against His Majesty's fleet have made him a legend in his adopted country -- but one look at the dashing stranger and Ashton's daughter Mira starts making plans of her own. . . .
She wanted no man -- but him.
Brash, hot-tempered, and born at sea in a raging gale, Mira Ashton is more than most men can manage. Disguising herself as a crew member and sneaking aboard Brendan's newly-built Kestrel, she becomes the schooner's finest gunner . . . and the captain's most outrageous distraction. As desire ignites between them, Mira finds herself competing against Kestrel for Brendan's love. But when tragedy strikes, Mira must join forces with her mighty rival in a daring adventure that turns the tide of battle and brings glorious victory to the colonists, the captain . . . and the lady who has captured his heart.

(Heroes of the Sea, #2)
He dreamed of his perfect woman, then he designed her and had her built. Together he planned for them to take to the seas on adventure after adventure as an American legend, a privateer who could become a thorn in the backside of the British Navy. Captain Brendan Merrick didn’t know that he could find a flesh and blood woman who could rival his love for his ship. Then again, he hadn’t yet met Mira Ashton.
Mira is a force to be reckoned with, a tsunami of a woman who could stand with the best sailors at sea, and on land, she was as brash and hot-tempered as any man. She also knew as soon as she saw the half-dead sailor that her heart was spoken for.
Prepare to set sail in a delightfully refreshing tale of action and romance as Danelle Harmon’s CAPTAIN OF MY HEART plunges us headlong into a gloriously humorous love triangle between a ship’s captain, his schooner and the woman he couldn’t have known existed!
Brendan is that hero, the one with honor, the one who dares to taunt the enemy and sail away, the one who is as dashingly handsome as he is charming. Mira is a powerhouse of excitement, completely a woman way before her time! She is also, warm, caring and absolutely endearing!
This is NOT your typical historical, seafaring romance, this is a breath of fresh sea air, sweet, daring and proof that love knows no bounds! Passions abound in this unforgettable tale, filled with colorful characters and all the adventure one can handle!
