She's his leverage
When Aidan Bradley suddenly remembers his bloody past, he can only think of one thing. Killing the bastard responsible. His key? Using his enemy's daughter to draw the pirate out. His miscalculation? That he'd soon find himself enticed by her innocence and beauty.
He's her rescuer
Sarah Santiago's lived her entire life locked away from the world. While naïve and innocent, Sarah recognizes attraction when she feels it and the pirate holding her as bait soon becomes the pirate she wants to hold.
The odds are against them
Will Aiden's desire for revenge cost him the woman he loves, or will his decision to stand down cost him his life at the blade of the soulless pirate who murdered his mother?
A Sam Steele Romance
"In the Arms of a Pirate" by Michelle Beattie is book number two in the "Sam Steele" series. You can read it as a standalone but I recommend that you read book one. You will have a better understanding of the story. This is Aidan Bradley and Sarah Santiago's story.
Aidan is out to avenge the assault on his family and friends. His goal is to kidnap Roche's daughter. Well, things don't go as planned. But sometimes that could be a good thing.
This is a historical novel filled with adventure, battles, sensual sex, family, and love.
I received a copy of this book from Tule Publishing for an honest review. FYI, contains mature content.
In the Arms of a Pirate
This was a great pirate novel. Aidan is determined to find and kill Roche Santiago after remembering what Roche had done to him and his mother when he was a little boy. Sarah is Roche's daughter, and has been basically kept as a prisoner her whole life. She has no idea what kind of person her father is, but Aidan figured she would make great leverage/bait to get Roche.
There was a ton of drama and suspense and action in this story. I really enjoyed the interactions between Aidan and Sarah, as she came to grips with a new reality about her father, and Aidan struggled to remind himself that Sarah wasn't responsible for her father's actions.
This was a wonderful story and I sacrificed sleep to get to the end because I just couldn't wait to see how everything worked out.
