The age difference doesn't sit well with me. husband being the age of 50+ for that girl seems to be a cruel thing to me.

Although a prequel, the story is charming in its own right. The author drew me in with the difficult situation of the heroine and made a the May-December (well, maybe August-November) marriage a touching success. There was enough tension and action to make this an excellent read.

This is a wonderful prequel to Royal Regard. It will help you understand Bella's background and introduce you to Charlotte and Myron. While it made me wince at times, it left me cheering for Bella and her happiness.

This is an interesting story, and one you shouldn't pss up.

It't about a young woman not graced with good looks but rather with good wit and charm.

After living her young life under the tyranny of her physically abusive father and brothers, she is sold to a man who is more than twice her age, is married to him, and travels the world with him for 15 years meeting all sorts of worldly sovereigns and others. She becomes well known worldwide and is welcomed wherever she and her husband find themselves under the command of England's king.

Shipmate by Mariana Gabrielle
A Royal Regard Prequel Novella
Miss Isabella Smithson hasn't had a very easy life. The daughter of a cruel man and sister to brother's no better than their sire, she lived with her relations. Her aunt may have never struck her with her hand...but instead, with her tongue lashings. And was decided she would marry and sail off with her new husband.

Myron Clewes, Baron of Holsworthy loved traveling as a sailor. Now that Prince Regent had made him a baron and given him land, he needed a wife and the desired heir. It was time, he was older, after all.

Bella is shy until she is aboard the Amelia. A stronger woman emerges as she travels away from England. Away from her family. In the next book, Royal Regard, the reader can get to know Bella more as she and Myron return to England after fifteen years of travel. I really enjoyed this story and look forward to more from this series. 'Tis Her Season, Bella's cousin Charlotte's story, and where we first meet Bella. This is in the boxed set of Mistletoe, Marriage and Mayhem.
