In Eloisa James’s companion story to The Ugly Duchess, Sir Griffin Barry, captain of the infamous pirate shipThe Poppy, is back in England to claim the wife he hasn’t seen since their wedding day . . . but this is one treasure that will not be so easy to capture.
This novella takes place at the same time as The Ugly Duchess. Griffin has returned from the sea. He’d run off after marrying “Poppy” who was three years older than him and in this book, they’re reacquainted after several years. I’m glad I didn’t have to wait long after reading The Ugly Duchess because I really did want to know more about the pirate. It’s one miscommunication after another and very humorous. I would have loved a full novel but I enjoyed the novella a lot. Definitely read it after The Ugly Duchess!
