The Fastest Ship is a blend of romance, adventure, and history mixed with historical fiction. The main focus of the story is a romance between a British Navy Captain who helps to build England’s first ironclad, HMS Warrior, and a young woman with amnesia and a past shrouded in mystery. Lurking in the background is a vengeful pirate, his dead wife, and the young woman’s first love.
