    Duncan should have just thrown her overboard

    When Sir Duncan de Ware initially sees a woman provoking a pirate, he's intrigued and feels honor bound to look out for her. But she's not nearly as appreciative of his efforts as he expects, taking him to be a commoner and treating him as if he's beneath her. He may be in disguise to blend in at the market, but he has little tolerance for nobles who look down upon those less fortunate. But when a known pirate and slaver abducts her, Duncan has little choice but to put his own judgement aside and find a way to rescue her. The Verdict: I didn't go into this book expecting something incredibly deep or serious, but even though it started off with plenty of humor and entertaining circumstances, the characters soon began to get on my nerves. Linet is rather obsessed with her noble lineage, even though she has little more than her family's name. On the one hand, at that time in history, name was pretty much everything, and I can understand her clinging to it in an effort to better her circumstances. However, she truly thinks less of those who aren't blue-blooded, and instead of trying to live up to a noble name, she simply flings it around as if it should have people bowing to her. Duncan, for his part, is more likeable — at least for a while. But his pauper routine grows old after the first several laughs, and even though I couldn't blame him for not wanting to dangle his family's wealth in front of a woman so clearly obsessed with status, I suspect I may have ended up liking both him and Linet more had he simply come clean about his identity much earlier in the story. The part that really grated on my nerves, though, was Linet's complete ineptitude. Sure, women in that time period didn't have a lot going for them, but she takes clumsily finding trouble to a whole new level. And by the time Duncan pops up on the ship where Linet's been stowed, her superior air and complete lack of reason and self-preservation is more irksome than entertaining. I had hoped this would be old-fashioned fun reminiscent of The Three Musketeers combined with heavy dose of romance, but My Champion quickly proved itself to be little more than historical slapstick centered around two largely unlikable and two-dimensional characters. The truly humorous moments were generally ruined by Linet's ignorance and pompous attitude, and if you ask me, Duncan should have just thrown her overboard and called it a day.
