  • Lily (Night Owl Book Cafe)

    I got a free copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.A cute, quick, clean, historical romance about Julia Scott - a woman who flees her terrible step mother who was forcing her to marry an older gentleman for money. Julia get's kidnapped by pirates as her ship is transporting her to the West Indies where she is hoping to stay with her uncle. She is rescued by John Smith, who for the most part of the book she assumes is a pirate and their adventure begins at sea. With only a small boat [...]

    Julia is an orphaned girl with a mean step-mother. When she is shipped off to the West Indies to visit her uncle after refusing a marriage offer, all craziness happens. While aboard a naval ship, they are attacked by pirates and Julia is rescued and carried off by one of them--a Mr. John Smith. And that's just the beginning of the adventures.Julia is a sweet girl, who really doesn't want to make waves. She is eager and accepting, yet she knows her mind and doesn't want to settle in life. I can't [...]


  • Kathy * Bookworm Nation

    This started of strong, I got sucked in and wanted to see what would happen next. About halfway or so I started to get.d, I guess. The first half was full of adventure with pirates and island savage, but the second half was slower paced.Julia was likable enough. She was sent away from her home in England to the island of Antigua to stay with her uncle, who is an Admiral in the Navy. She meets with one mishap after another, but finds an unlikely ally in John Smith. He rescues her time and again a [...]


  • Melissa

    I wasn't sure what to expect from this book. The cover was beautiful and it sounded like something I would love. I started reading it and finished in a couple hours it was so fun to read. There was so much action right off and you just want to know what is going on and why and I loved finding out all the answers. This was different and fun to read and I really liked Julia after getting to know her. This was an clean, adventure, regency romance and I wish it had been longer:} I am going to check [...]


  • Cara

    It was a promising start – excitement and adventure and you are left just a little breathless, like “what just happened? Who is this guy? This is not your typical story – I’m definitely interested!” But then it mellows out. And gets a little boring. And doesn’t fully recover.I wish the author had more fully developed the characters, especially Greenway. What’s his story? How did he come to do this mysterious job that we only barely find out about at the very end? What’s his world [...]


  • Kashinda

    I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.I’ve never been a reader of romance novels, so I had a bit of trepidation about this one. Julia seemed a bit on the overly fragile waif-y side to me, but she didn’t fall to pieces when I expected her to, so I had to grudgingly award her some points for hanging in there. “John Smith” seemed like a real jerk for quite a ways into the book, the worse he was to Julia, the more sympathy I felt for her and the more I wanted to [...]


  • Tara

    I think this book was well written (The format was kind of funky, and there were a few grammatical errors, a name mixup, etc. Basically, easy fixes with a little more editing) and had so much potentialbut for some reason, I actually had a hard time getting into it. It was a short one (150 pages, I think?), but it just didn't grab me. When I had the time to read, I would--and I enjoyed it well enough--but I didn't find myself making time to read. The first half of the book was too much descriptio [...]


  • Tori

    3.5 starsThis was an entertaining, clean novella. I read it quickly on a lazy Sunday afternoon. It had pirates, sleezy captains, savages, and more. I enjoyed the storyline. The hero and heroine made great characters. It became more predictable by the end, but the first 2/3 had me guessing! And even the "predictable" part was exactly what I was hoping to happen. :) As with most novellas I wished for more character development, but the author did a good job in the short amount of pages. I wish I k [...]


  • Rachel John

    I must say that I loved this book. I saw it mentioned in a tweet and tried a sample and was hooked. Being 99 cents helped too. I did not hesitate to buy it once I'd read the sample and I wasn't disappointed once I'd finished. This was a magical mix of regency and pirates, set in the West Indies. I've read one other book by Danielle Thorne so I knew she'd be great when it comes to island locations and sea life. The action and adventure portions were great, the romance was better (while remaining [...]


  • Lea

    I really liked this book! Read it in 1 hour and it ended perfectly.It is the perfect book for you when you just need that sweet quick read. I actually hate all the romance aspects in books because they ruin every other meaning it could have. But the romance in this book is so subtle that I really could not fight the smile of my lips, it really was that cute!Danielle Thorne wrote it in a very beautiful way and I enjoyed the old english feeling she gave her book.


  • E.L.

    This was an awesome Read asd I was sorry to see it end though the ending was perfect. Will definitely be inquiring About more of Ms. Thorne's other works. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for a good clean romance story.


  • Carol

    How can you go wrong with an enchanting pirate adventure! Loved the story from the action of the very first pages.Content: Clean


  • Sally

    Really entertainingI enjoyed this book and didn't want to put it down until I finished reading! The characters are predictable types, but they are in the high seas of the West Indies, which tests them in other interesting ways! I went looking for another book by this author. While her characters spoke with less propriety than one might expect for the time period, her historical details are spot on and expertly weaved into the plot.


  • Elina

    As others mentioned great start, middle was good, but then the end completely killed it for me. More happens in the last chapter than in half the book. Seems rushed and lazy and one major plot twist doesn't even make sense. Oh well, still 3 stars because I did enjoy most of the book.


  • Mary Ann

    Sweet StoyA gutsy heroine an ,at first, slightly goofy hero, my kind of guy! And a sweet love story, with a truly slimy villain. A coward, a suck up and an opportunist. He made the royal navy look very bad.


  • Mary

    I have never picked up a book and loved it this much. I was hooked from the first couple chapters and when I thought I knew where the plot was going, there would be a twist. It was dangerous and sweet and clever and romantic. It was so dang good. I would highly recommend this book.


  • Katherine Ulshafer

    A fun and sweet little adventureAction, adventure and a touch of sweet romance in a beautiful setting. I will definetly read more from this author.


  • Gerry

    Really enjoyed reading this delightful story.


  • Dawn Pearson

    I was given a copy of this book for an honest review -And, I honestly think it was fantastic. Was it perfect in every sense of the word? Not exactly. There were a few spelling / grammar errors that I marked if the author / publisher wants to contact me for their locations. So, why do I still give it 5 stars?I give it 5 stars because this is an honest to goodness romance. It checks off all the boxes.The story begins by introducing the heroine, Julia Scott, as she is on board a navy ship that is s [...]

    I got a free copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.Cinderella adventure in the West IndiesYoung miss Julia Scott is sent to Antigua, to her uncle the admiral, after she refused to marry the older man her evil stepmother chose for her. During her trip her companion falls ill so she decides to go alone under protection of Royal Navy capitan. But their ship is soon attacked by pirates and she finds herself in grave danger. She is saved by mysterious pirate John Smith and they end up in [...]


  • Franky

    The author advertises Jane Austen-inspired sweet historical romance, so when I started reading her new release, Proper Attire, I was expecting a Pride and Prejudice-like story. Let me tell you, this is not your Grandma's Jane Austen story. Imagine if Jane refused to marry a wealthy old man she did not love, was sent away to the West Indies, attacked by pirates, rescued by a handsome, mysterious stranger she doesn't know if she can trust and then shipwrecked.This is a story that hooked me from pa [...]


  • Rita Cinquemani

    Proper Attire is a romance novel that combines the classic fairy-tale Cinderella with the adventures from Gulliver’s Travels. In the novel, an orphan Julia, travels to Antigua only to have her ship be attacked by pirates. During the attack, she meets a man, John Smith, who becomes her savior. Despite being a captive and orphan, Julia is a well-developed character filled with ambition and wit. She is not the classic damsel in distress. Instead, she is aware of her surroundings and is skeptical [...]


  • Sam B

    I received this ebook through ebooksforreview in exchange for an honest review.First of all, I have to say that I didn't love this book. I liked it, but I didn't love it.The book in general was good. But some parts of it I felt were very unrealistic and I didn't like that.The book is about Julia, a young woman who's moving to the West Indies. During her trip, the boat she is on is attacked by pirates. Fortunately for her, one of these pirates helps her escape. They then go through other misadven [...]


  • KyBunnies

    Originally posted at Bunny's ReviewThis is one of the true historical romance books I have read in more years than I can remember. I have finally found an author that does not believe in putting a bunch of premarital sex in a story. The story does have some light reference to kissing. This is a perfect book for any young adult.The adventure, twist and turns make this book into more than an escape story for me. This story came alive in my mind with picture perfect story-telling.Bravo to the autho [...]


  • Laura

    Blurb about the story: Pressured to marry for money, Julia Scott flees England and a cruel stepmother to determine if the West Indies is the paradise of her dreams. Attacked by pirates and desired by island natives, the only person she can trust is John Smith -- if that's her rescuer's true name. Reaching her uncle's station in English Harbor, Julia must find a way to face her feelings and deal with her traitorous family, a dashing new suitor, and the guardian angel, John Smith, who has no qualm [...]


  • Cassie Tucker

    One of my favorite types of romance books are historical romance, however, I sometimes feel that they can have a bit TO much romance (if you know what I mean). So it was very refreshing to read Danielle Thorne's Proper Attire which was able to tell a historical romance story without making the reader blush but still having that romance.Julia is on the run after escaping from being married to someone she doesn't love just for their money. However, she find that running away has landed her straigh [...]


  • Rachel

    I would probably give this book 3.5 stars. This short story had plenty of action, adventure, excitement, angst, and romance to keep my attention. It jumps right into the action with the boat that Julia Scott is on being taken over by pirates. After being rescued by John Smith they are swept onto an island that puts them into contact with savages and once again John Smith rescues them. And the action doesn't stop there! I loved the character of John Smith/Mr. Greenway. Who wouldn't love a dashing [...]


  • Tressa (Wishful Endings)

    I pretty much enjoyed this book from beginning to end. There was adventure, hilarity, dialogue full of wit, friendship, and some sweet romance. I loved Julia, even in all her naivete, and dashing "John Smith" who was rather a charming rogue and Julia's hero on multiple occasions. I was amazed at how well the characters and plot were developed for a story less than 200 pages. It was very well done and I was thoroughly entertained. Even though this was an entertaining and sweet story with some hil [...]


  • Lydia

    Danielle Thorne has created a beautiful historical romance set in the West Indies. Between a unique setting and a gift for descriptive writing, Danielle sweeps readers away to what I would refer to as a classic romance. Rather than the standard “love at first sight” scenario, we get to experience love developing from a hasty beginning to a friendship and then bond that cannot be denied. The heroine, Julia Scott is loveably feisty. Her hero, “John Smith” fits her perfectly as a counterpoi [...]


  • Anita

    I really liked this book. Danielle Thorne is a new author to me. The writing of this book (especially in the first half) had a refreshing intelligence to it. Ms. Thorne's vocabulary and descriptive writing was unexpected in what I thought might be a light romance. There was also adventure and interesting turns.I loved the John Smith/Mr. Greenway character. The aura of mystique and fun surrounding him kept my attention. Julia Scott was good, but for me not great. She felt both clueless and knowle [...]
