Kiss Me, Captain: French Kiss # 2
By: Gwen Jones
Releasing August 26th, 2014
Avon: Impulse

French billionaire Marcel Mercier loves women. And there's a string of broken hearts across two continents to prove it. But as CEO of Mercier Shipping, he's got more important things to worry about . . . like why the charter company he just purchased in the United States is suddenly the center of an international media firestorm.

Now that big, bad Mercier Shipping owns Captain Dani Lloyd's ship, she's sure her job is at stake. But she won't go down without a fight—even if it means chaining herself to the mast of the Esther Reed and refusing to set foot on shore.

The delectable captain and her newsworthy dramatics are a PR nightmare, but Marcel is happy to let Dani prove her skills on a weeklong sail to Boston. He knows no woman can resist him for that long . . . in fact, he's counting on it.

But Marcel's plan to seduce Dani backfires as sparks fly between the billionaire playboy and the passionate captain. Which leaves Marcel realizing that winning her heart is a challenge he can't afford to lose.

My Thoughts:

All right, I got a chance to read Kiss Me, Captain. I have to say that I liked it. I mean isn't there to like. First off, you have a billionaire who just knows what to say to women. Okay, he might be a bit of a womanizer, come on he had two failed marriages. I guess he could live like a monk, but thats not going to happen. Anyway, we also have a woman captain of a ship, Danielle, who has to prove that she can be just as good as a man when sailing the open waters. Not an easy task.

So, Dani is trying to keep her job, but she goes about it the wrong way and she attracts the attention of Marcel. Now Marcel is dealing with this nightmare of the situation when an opportunity arises to dispose of the situation.  Now he's pretty much going to do a dastardly thing and seduce Dani to force her to leave the company without any problems. Sounds like a simple. Yes, we know that it isn't always that simple.

Danielle, is stubborn girl. I like that she loves what she does. I mean being a captain of a ship isn't always easy, especially when you are a woman. I love her spirit, but it does get her into trouble. Now Marcel *head shake* knows how to play to his strength. He's handsome attractive french guy, who will try to takedown Danielle at any cost. However, he never takes into the account that he might fall for the girl. At the beginning of the book, he's a true bastard only looking out for numero uno, but of course that changes over the course of time. You kind of feel bad for Danielle for what's going to happen, but not enough cause she does have a strong will.

Overall, Kiss Me, Captain is a pretty good read with some a billionaire playboy who is out for himself and a captain who is a bit stubborn. I like the chemistry between the two of them and I like the fact that Danielle tries to resist Marcel's charm. So, if you are looking for a high seas adventure with ├╝ber sexy frenchman and a captain who will fight for her place, you might give Kiss Me, Captain a go.
