      Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || || PinterestI read this book for the Unapologetic Romance Readers' New Years 2017 Reading Challenge. For more info about what this is, click here.Heather, Sarah, and I decided to do an impromptu buddy read of CAPTAIN OF MY HEART because it was free, and as the mods of the Unapologetic Romance Readers group, it is our job to read as many romances as unapologetically as possible. #ReadDangerouslyI was skeptical about this book from the beginning and only downlo [...]

    2. Buddy Read with Nenia and Sarah!Well, that was refreshing!The romance was adorable. Brendan was confident, talented, and handsome, but also rather shy of attention. He was a delight to read. Mira was a true spitfire heroine who annoyed me a little at first, but in the end I was charmed by her. Together they were quite cute.I only wish more time had been spent on their romance (and sex, obviously). A large portion of the book was taken up by ship battles and descriptions, which, while stunningly [...]

    3. Read for the URR 2017 New Year's Reading Challenge prompt 'Pirate Romance'23/3 - I enjoyed that a lot more this time around than when I last read it as an older teenager. I don't think I appreciated the seafaring action, historical accuracy and attention to detail that this book was full of. I think I was mostly just looking for lots of sex and this only has two scenes, so it got put in the 'boring pile' in my mind, which, I assume is why it got put in the donate pile a few years ago. My prior r [...]

    4. An Unusual Tale of American Privateers in the Revolutionary WarThis is part of Harmon’s Heroes of the Sea series and chronologically follows MASTER of MY DREAMS. It begins in 1775 on the eve of the War of Independence. Brendan Merrick, just promoted to Flag Captain in the Royal Navy, is shot, the victim of a fellow officer’s jealousy. Three years later, in 1778, the half Irish naval architect and rising young officer has defected to the American side to become a privateer, taking his former [...]

    5. I am seriously so excited to write this review of Captain of My Heart by Danelle Harmon. Let me preface this by saying that I have gone through a little reading slump this year and find it very hard to “fall madly in love” with many books. I promise you, that I did not have that problem with this book. Actually it was quite the opposite. I fell hard and fast and probably now all of the other books I read this year will not compare at all!With Captain of my Heart I found so many old feelings [...]

    6. Ugh. I had to force myself to finish the last half of this book. I just didn't care and I just didn't like any of the main characters, Myra was annoying and loud and I'm sorry but how did she manage to get onto Brendan's ship time and time again without him noticing? That annoyed me. Judging from the reviews I see I am alone in my solitary dislike of this book which is a shame because the time period is really interesting (Colonial America + Royal Navy + Privateers) but I just couldn't stomach t [...]

    7. Audiobook Review: Captain Brendan Merrick was a man of compassion and one who believed in doing the right thing which meant taking care of the men who served under his command. Captain Brendan Merrick was the new flag captain who previously captained the crew on the Halcyon. It was apparent how much the men love and respected him. Crichton the current captain of the ship was despised by his men and captained with an iron fist. We walk into a scene where Dalby was strung up to be thrashed for ste [...]

    8. I like Danelle Harmon (I loved her The Wicked One when it first came out and I still found it enjoyable after the most recent rereading). I also love tall ships and the heroines who can sail them. I don't mind imperfect heroines - in fact, I'll take them over the typical martyrs who seem to be far too prevalent in the romance novels. However, I simply can't stand Mira Ashton. She's basically a Mary Sue with no flaws other than inability to cook (we all know that learning a few basic recipes is b [...]

    9. Yes, I'm still loving me some sea captains. This time Captain Brendan Jay Merrick, brilliant Naval architect with an Irish brogue wins him a lassie. A very fiery lassie. I think the thing I liked most about this book is that Mira isn't the typical heroine. She is loud, boisterous and considerably the antithesis of a lady. Even her cooking skills are terrible. These qualities and her love of the sea made her even more endearing. I loved her and her loud choleric family.

    10. Harmon has a way of keeping me on the edge of my seat like no other. This book started a little slow so I gave it a four, but the suspense was gut wrenching, and that's why I enjoy reading Danelle Harmon.

    11. Dannielle Harmon menulis buku yg asik di baca tentang pelayaran dan percintaan di kapalally liked itI love the main character , the hero was all we imagine about "a captain" .

    12. Great story (weaving in Mira, who we met in the Beloved One) as she finds her way to Capt. Merrick. I really love how this series weaves in all of the characters.

    13. OkI didn't care for the main characters. Mira was a brat and Brendan kept running away from Mira. Too many incidents, they became tiresome. I like Ms Harmon's writing but will not read this series. I gave this book three stars because I like Ms Harmon.

    14. HeadlineI enjoy Ms. Harmon's books. I think I have read all of them. This series holds a lot of pleasure. I laughed a couple of times. Mostly I was holding my breath and reading as fast as I could. If you want an escapego to the seas.

    15. Quite simply, this book have me a headache. Oh, the history and sailing were interesting enough, but virtually every character annoyed me. First, we have Brendan, who's sworn off women and vows to only love his ship. Naturally, he's literally bowled over by an out-of-control hoyden who dresses like a filthy boy, cusses like a sailor, and seems to yell more often than not. In fact, her whole family shrieks at each other constantly. When a large chunk of the beginning of the story consisted of lit [...]

    16. Brendan Merrick, lately of His Majesty's Navy and now an American Privateer fighting King George's shipping, has designed the perfect tops'l schooner and arrives in town to have her built at the Ashton shipyard, unfortunately in a somewhat soggy condition, having been washed overboard from his own ship which is subsequently wrecked. Misunderstandings notwithstanding, he meets Ashton's daughter, Mira, She's a hellion, brought up in a household of noisy, argumentative men, who runs a riding school [...]

    17. "Captain of My Heart" by Danelle HarmonThe story of Miss Mira Ashton and her Captain Brendon Jay Merrick vividly transports the reader over blue waters and rough seas, New England and places in between, delighting the reader with wonderful descriptions. Using colorful descriptors built remarkably with few words, the reader needs only to close their eyes to see the characters, sense their moods, enjoy the same weather and scenery that their hero or heroine is experiencing. They can almost taste a [...]

    18. After a disastrous clash with a jealous fellow officer, Captain Brendan Merrick was more or less forced to change sides in the Revolutionary War. After a second, nearly deadly clash, he finds himself convalescing in the home of Ephraim Ashton, a renowned shipbuilder. He'd intended to commission Ashton to build him a new schooner, based on his own, unique design. And then he met the family. When the Ashtons aren't engaging in roof-raising shouting matches, the constant ticking of the zillion cloc [...]

    19. I was grateful to receive a free copy of Captain of My Heart Danelle Harmon in exchange for an honest review. I really liked the story idea, but there was just way too much history, "boat," and "warfare" tactics/discussion and not enough romance to make this an enjoyable read for me. The book was well written, and if you enjoy history then I would recommend this book.

    20. I loved this book! Set during the time of the American Revolution and the role ships had in the fight against the English. Captain Brendan Merrick, an Irishman formerly of Her Majesty's Royal Navy, turns coat and becomes an American privateer. He is as smart and undaunted as they come. He designs a schooner to rival any and has renown shipbuilder Ephraim Ashton of Newburyport build the ship for him. Ephraim's daughter, Mira, is a petite and feisty tomboy that grew up without a mother's guidance [...]

    21. Captain Brendan Jay Merrick is a rising Naval officer in the British Royal Navy, and just like his father before him, his love and mistress was the sea. An all around golden boy, loved and admired by all, he was going places. Nothing could go wrong for the young rising star until one fateful day he boards his old ship, of which the vile and cruel Captain Crichton is in command and who was caught whipping one of the sailors. What ensues is life altering for Brendan, who's shot and falls overboard [...]

    22. Be Still My Heart ❤️ Danielle Harmon has hit all the right notes with "Captain of My Heart". It is a swashbuckling tale rich in its descriptions, a romance that touches all your emotions, and characters that are so real it's as if you've known them forever. I could not put it down, only stopping when it was absolutely necessary. I most definitely will be looking for Book 3 of "Heroes of the Sea" series.

    23. Captain of My Heart is book two in the Hereos of the Sea series. The beginning grabs your attention when you meet Captain Brendan Merrick who is highly regarded in the Royal Navy. He and her sister are wounded at the hands of another officer. He is overboard and you are unsure whether he will live or die. Mira Ashton is a fiery lady who has a colorful vocabulary and guts like you would not believe. She meet Brendan and the attraction is immediate. Brendan is now a privateer for the Americans. He [...]

    24. A thrilling story of sea battles during the Revolutionary war. Brendan is a half Irish half British sea captain who uses his talent as an artist to distract the enemy from the battle. But one of his own countrymen is jealous and hates him to the point that he tries to kill him. Captain Crichton then lied in his reports and said that Brendan had turned traitor. The time it took to recover from his wounds gave Brendan the chance to see the the American cause was the one he preferred. The next time [...]

    25. I really had my doubts about this book when I first picked it up. It was one of those '4 novels for $.99' deals that I just couldn't resist! So far, this is my favorite of the four books (which are completely unrelated to each other). This is an historical fiction set in 1778 (of course I wondered what Jamie and Claire were up to at this time!) and it's about a young Captain of a schooner who's afraid to fall in love.The nice thing was that it wasn't JUST a love story. It was a lot more. This au [...]

    26. This is my first book by this author. I've heard great praise for her work and I was looking forward to reading this. I have mixed emotions. 1) Mira. Why did she yell so much? I wonder if I had read this rather than listen to the audiobook maybe the yelling wouldn't have been so obvious or annoying. 2. Her Father. Same thing with the yelling. 3. Brendan. Loved him! Totally. Luck of the Irish indeed. 4. Battle of the Penobscot. Great historical detail. That's my neighborhood so it was good that t [...]

    27. I downloaded this book onto my Kindle because one of my favorite authors, Julia Quinn, suggested it on her Facebook feed. I was not disappointed. This book had humor, history, and (of course) romance. It was fascinating to learn about the different ships and towns which built them that changed the course of the American Revolution. Although most of the historical romance books that I read take place in the Medieval or Regency periods, this book interested me with the history that is close to hom [...]
