Summary from Goodreads:

1811, HMS Deborah

Georgana Woodall dreams of freedom—freedom from her past and freedom from her secret. She has been living on her father’s ship for years, disguised as a cabin boy named “George.” But hiding her true self is becoming more difficult, and she yearns to break free of her life on the sea.

Lieutenant Dominic Peyton has no time in his life for love, not with his dedication to His Majesty’s Royal Navy claiming his full attention. Determined to prove himself to his new captain, he strives to be an exemplary officer and leader. When he sees the captain’s cabin boy being harassed by the crew, he immediately puts a stop to it and takes the boy under his wing.

Georgana quickly loses her heart to Dominic’s compassion and care, but needing to maintain her disguise as a cabin boy, she is convinced nothing can come of her affection.

Georgana’s Secret is about two hearts yearning to find a safe harbor, and possibly, a lasting love.

This was a wonderful masterpiece. I really enjoyed every minute of this story.

We follow a young cabin boy named George, or is it Georgeana, as she struggles to hid who she is on a ship full of men. The only one who knows her true identity is the captain, her father.

When George starts to have feelings for the new Lieutenant Payton, things start to take a turn for the worse on the ship. Action and adventure pursue and poor George struggles to survive.

With every turn of the story, I found myself rooting for George. Will she be able to hid her true identity and stay safe, or will she give in to those feeling and reveal who she truly is to Payton?

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
