Original Title: Ivan Takes a Wife (1989)
Sinfully handsome schooner captain Ivan Rasmussen deserved to be called Ivan the Terrible, Stephanie Lowe decided. First he’d sold her a haunted house, and now he was laughing at her Calamity Jane cooking! She’d only agreed to work one voyage of his Maine coastal cruise in exchange for the house repairs promised by her cousin, who’d run off to marry a plumber. When the brazen Ivan, descendant of a pirate, swept her into his arms during a moonlight rendezvous, Stephanie knew how it felt to be a pirate’s treasure! Ivan teased her, flirted with her, and made her feel cherished as no one ever had, but when would her sexy scoundrel deliver the ravishing he promised? Ivan had expected a shipboard romance, a fling on the ocean that ended at the dock, but every time he kissed Stephanie, he thought of marriage, hearth, and home. Could he seduce his ladylove with the sweet mysteries of passion and put her private ghosts to rest?
Love Overboard is a fluffy love story. The romance between Ivan and Stephanie is sweet. Ivan is not as terrible as she once thinks. In fact, he just a dangerous type of sexy. For Ivan, Stephanie is just what he didn’t know he was looking for. Of course, this story ends with the happy ending but in the course of getting to that ending a lot of crazy events happen. It didn’t hold my attention the whole way through but it is a quick read. Oh and no dog in this one. If you are a Janet Evanovich reader you know why I mention this.
