Passion heats, secrets unravel, and hearts entangle until they break.
Can love prevail in the sea of ruin?
Not for the Faint of Heart...In a Great Way.
I loved this book. The writing didn’t make me want to skip ahead, I was emotionally invested in Bennett’s story, and I drooled unapologetically at more than one male character.
The only real negative was that I figured out a certain plot twist long before it was revealed. However, I was kinda proud of myself that I did.
I highly recommend if you are looking for an incredibly erotic sea adventure...which I was.
An erotic adventure
Wow, great read but not for the squeamish. And what a twist at the end. Didn’t see that coming!
Perfection! Intense, deviant, sexy.
A magnificent portrayal of power, seduction and brutality. It’s pirates in the hands of this author so you should know you will get a story that will gut you with its intense and savagery. I’ve had a love affair with pirates from a young age and this story hits all the marks with the beautiful pirate queen Bennett and her lovers, the swaggering pirate feral Priest and the commanding British naval commodore Ashley. While the Royal Navy’s hunts the rebel queen of the sea, Bennett hunts for her father’s legacy and raids ships for their bounty and to free slaves. Both lead to some gut wrenching, cringe worthy encounters as danger finds Bennett and she fighting for her life. On the flip side is the panty wetting romance with her too sexy pirate mate and her stern commodore. Priest is a sex on legs, hot-blooded hunk while Ashley is a cold, dominant brute. Lucky girl! Priest is a dream hero as the feral beast but I’m team Ashley even with his bad behavior. There were just a few elements that didn’t ring true with me but for the most part this is what I expected from a hard hitting, sexy portrayal of the life of maundering savages at the height of the Caribbean pirates era. Some scenes reminded me of the spectacular TV series Black Sails, especially the connection between Priest and Ashley. Full of heart pounding danger, heart stopping brutality and heart melting romance. This is one to read for a realistic tale of pirates and Brits on the high seas. Absolutely terrific!
