Review: Loving Lieutenant Douglas (A Brethren of the Coast Novella) - Barbara Devlin

If you've read the Brethren of the Coast series, then you know Admiral Mark and Lady Amanda Douglas, as the patriarch and matriarch of the Nautionnier Knights.  Would you like to know how they fell in love? Take a trip back in time, to 1785, when Horatio Nelson was a new captain, and England was not yet at war with France.

It is the Age of Sail, and First Lieutenant Mark Douglas of the Royal Navy has set his sights on a fiery society miss with a spirit to match his own. What happens when Lady Amanda Gascoigne-Lake's father rejects the sailor's suit, and an ancient brooch with mystical power portends doom?

Review by Iris: 
As a huge fan of Devlin’s Brethren of the Coast series, I loved this short look back at how it all started. I first read Loving Lieutenant Douglas as part of the A Jewel in Time anthology and as soon as I realized it was being released on it’s own, I knew I had to get it.

The moment Lieutenant Douglas sets eyes on Lady Amanda across the crowded ball room he is instantly smitten and the feeling would be completely mutual, if a mistaken identity didn’t cause him to stick his foot in his mouth. This sets our couple on a whirlwind relationship filled with twists, turns, romance and secret missions.

I always find Devlin to be so eloquent with words and this much shorter story was no different.
