babies are being re released on Kindle, what used to be a frustrating and time consuming hobby has been made vastly easier Take MY LOVE, MY ENEMY by Jan Cox Speas, a classic romance that, until just a few years ago, used to be out of print Copies were expensive Tears of frustration were shed Then Sourcebooks Casablanca said, I got you, boo, and suddenly, we were all back in business, for the small price of ninety nine cents.MY LOVE, MY ENEMY is set during the War of 1812 Our heroine is named Page and she is kind of an idiot in the way that only teenagers can be idiots The British are blockading the bay, and she decides to hop aboard a ship and go shopping Things happen, and she ends up saving a British man from being lynched, only to come across him yet again when their ship is taken prisoner by the British and she finds out her savior is one of the evil noblemen that her country only just finished rebelling against during that nasty Revolution oh, and he s also a spy.I m a sucker for a well done nautical romp and this one was done really well The scenes and descriptions were very well done, and Jan Cox Speas has a delicious way with words that manages to be evocative without being heavy handed Some of her descriptions of people especially the hero were utterly swoon worthy I m not just surprised that this romance was out of print, I m surprised they didn t put it back in print sooner It s slow burn, clean, and action packed, so it will appeal to virtually anyone, and there s no rapey scenes or overt racism at least none that caught my eye.So why not four or five stars It s a short book but it feels long, and that s because the pacing is uneven The scenes on the high seas or involving the hero Whoosh The scenes when Page is being ferried around, and alternately bemoaning about how much she misses home and how these moments on the boat as a captive are the happiest days of her life oh, Page Draaaaag I found myself skimming at times, which I didn t really want to do, because the writing was good.I did like MY LOVE, MY ENEMY, though, and I can think of several Goodreads friends who will love this bookthan I did One point of frustration at the end, it contains a teaser for BRIDE OF THE MACHUGH, her most popular book, coming soon for re release But if you click the Sourcebooks Casablanca edition for this book on Goodreads,says it s out of print cries Thus the vicious cycle begins anew 3 to 3.5 stars There is no question that Jan Cox Speas is an exquisite writer who can deliver a perfect historical setting in this case, the War of 1812 between England and America as well as memorable characters Her Lord Hazard is the stuff that dreams are made of There was, in truth, much that was extraordinary about him even at the most conventional moments Now, his face running with rain and very dark against the white shirt plastered wetly to his wide shoulders, hands on his hips as he laughed down at There is no question that Jan Cox Speas is an exquisite writer who can deliver a perfect historical setting in this case, the War of 1812 between England and America as well as memorable characters Her Lord Hazard is the stuff that dreams are made of There was, in truth, much that was extraordinary about him even at the most conventional moments Now, his face running with rain and very dark against the white shirt plastered wetly to his wide shoulders, hands on his hips as he laughed down at her, he had an undeniably rakish air he looked a pirate who needed only a knife at his belt and a dangling gold earring with a backdrop of angels and seraphim he would be a black Lucifer, shamelessly pleased by his fall from grace.She has an elegant way with words and can bring to life her characters with a few, carefully chosen words Her Mrs Chudleigh, for example, a pampered English widow who has had difficulty acclimating herself to life in Bermuda, is small and wispy and faded, like a rose drooping on the stem In contrast, her lady s companion Eliza is a tranquil monochrome in gray and black, her face contained and quiet, her dark eyes looking out at the world with a calm serenity.Even her description of something as mundane as weather had the capacity of dazzling me It rained for three days, a gray smoking downpour that hovered like vapor above the sea, lashed Mrs Chudleigh s flowers into tatters, and gurgled continually into the cisterns On the morning of the fourth day the sun rose on a drenched island washed clean of dust and heat, its brilliant emerald and pink and white sparkling beside a blue green sea..So why could I not like My love, my enemyWell, I like a slow burn just as much as the next gal but the courtship between the protagonists here was so stilted that by the last quarter of the book, when they finally seemed to make some progress, it was too little, too late I don t regret reading this book because the depth of historical research that went into it acted like a time machine propelling me to high seas adventures dodging British and American warships alike, and was certainly fun But the actual romance in the book was very underwhelming for me, and a bit of a waste of two greatly constructed main characters Quel dommage My Love, My Enemy orThe Most Boring, Full of Geographical Tangents, Round Trip Boat Ride To Annapolis, Maryland In the History of Ever.The sea battle at the one third point was the most exciting part The romance was subtle, no doubt, but so was the one in My Lord Monleigh and that one was 5 stars and full of awesome I don t know what the
