REVIEW

Swept Up by the Sea is a humorous, light romance revolving around the adventures of one Percival Taylor and Tuppence Magrathia-Paddock.  Percival arrives in Blackshore determined to become a pirate and have gentlemanly adventures. However, despite his best efforts every pirate ship in port rejects him, yet he persists in sneaking on board. In his efforts to defend himself from the pirates he inadvertently rescues Tuppence.  Tuppence is convinced that Percival is a 'rogue' and fantasizes about him.  When Tuppence is kidnapped Percival sets out to rescue her in his own rather bumbling way.  If you are looking for a serious romance with a great deal of depth this is probably not for you. But if like me you enjoy a light humorous fantasy where the hero/heroine are likeable but inept than I can heartily recommend this one.
