Prize of My Heart by Lisa Norato is a refreshingly straightforward novel. It seems in want of some depth though. The characters' motives were solid, as was the overall plot, but I thought the end was obtained too easily - that it didn't have quite as many twists as I would have liked. One of the main things which kept me engaged in the story was that the plot described in the synopsis was resolved about halfway through the book and I was curious what else there was to write about. It is a good read if you're looking for something simple and lighthearted.
Lorena is a shipwright's daughter of whom Captain Talvis has commissioned a large vessel. They met under odd circumstances involving mistaken identity and a boy under Lorena's charge. This boy is the key to why Talvis chose Lorena's father to build his ship: the boy is Talvis' long lost son. In order to win the heart of his son, he must win the heart of Lorena, whether or not he is ready to give his heart again.
