Not as polished as some of the other Heyer novels I've read, this one was still enjoyable. The historical accuracy is still admirable and the Elizabethan period is conjured admirably. Dominica isn't particularly well-developed as a character and is considerably outshone by the charismatic personality that is Beauvallet. The narrative tone also wanders a bit. But any flaws are made up for by a plot that dashes along quickly with a heavy dose of pirates thrown into the mix.
