The Captain's Lady Virtual Book Tour and First Review

My Virtual Book Tour for my debut novel, The Captain's Lady, begins August 16 - September 12. The first three tour stops :
August 16: Evie Alexis

August 17: Jaded Vixen

August 18: Katie Bug: Domestic Diva

Also good news. My first review is in:

The first chapter of The Captain’s Lady drops us in the Northern Arabian Gulf in 2004 with Abby Carlton. She’s obviously hot, thirsty, and in pain. But why? And what is it she’s so afraid of? Who’s coming? And just to make things more interesting - she’s pregnant.

But how in the world did this pregnant girl end up stranded on a dinghy in the middle of the ocean? You’d be hard pressed not to give into your curiosity and read on to answer these questions and more that are sure to be ignited by the vague first chapter of this love story. Lorhainne Eckhart does such an excellent job of baiting the hook, you’d be surprised to learn that The Captain’s Lady is her debut novel. Eckhart does an impressive job of character development and plot execution (with one particularly surprising twist of the sub-plot). And she has a knack for using a razor sharp descriptive voice that pulls the reader into the story. I felt like I was on the ship watching the story between the knight in shining armor character Eric and our damsel in distress Abby unfold.

I have never been a huge fan of romance novels, but Eckhart’s book has made a fan out of me. The tale is gripping, romantic, and vivid. The story reads like a modern-day fairy tale, and it will make you want to believe in fairy tales again, and send you to bed dreaming of your own knight in shining armor (if you can put it down to go to bed).

Wives - suggesting that your husband read this book with you, would probably be futile. But all your girlfriends with even a romantic bone in their body will fall in love with it. If you’re looking for a book to escape to The Captain’s Lady is a must read, you’ll find yourself somewhere else completely distracted from your own problems every time you pick it up.
