this year One look at his too handsome face, one word from his too charming mouth, and she didn t know if she wanted to kiss him or kill him.It s a stormy romance with the most amazing hero and heroine It was such an engaging read I don t want to spoil it because it was so good, and I couldn t see the twists and turns in advance which made it evenawesome The scenery is very much alive and I actually wished that I was on a pirate ship with a handsome French captain of course It was so good that I can t put it into words, and there is no way I can make it justice in a review I will just say this pick it up right now 3.5 starsI liked the second book better but props to Shana Galen s well paced and great writing skills I have a confession to make I have a real weakness for pirate naval romance There s something about the wide open ocean, and those little itty bitty ships they used to sail to plunder and pillage if you ever get the chance to tour a realistic modern copy, you realize just how minuscule they were, and how packing hundreds of people on board must have been interesting And then pirates are always gorgeous and rough and scantily clad and full of derring do, and naval

to plunder and pillage if you ever get the chance to tour a realistic modern copy, you realize just how minuscule they were, and how packing hundreds of people on board must have been interesting And then pirates are always gorgeous and rough and scantily clad and full of derring do, and naval officers are like pirates butneatly turned out, and haverules to ignore I love them all Of course, in reality, being a sailor wasn t quite like that Sickness and illness and injury were very common, the teeny tiny ships probably smelt worse than an outhouse and the food was atrocious Pirates really weren t lovable rogues, but were incredibly cruel people, and usually ended up dead Flogging wasn t some BDSM attempt at play, but was enough to kill a man And I bet their breath smelt worse than fish whether they were the rogues or the good guys David Cordingly has written some great stories about the reality of pirate life and naval life in general, including for women, and they don t read much like a romance.But, even so, I LOVE the old trope of naughty, but lovable pirate rogue meets his match in spirited ocean going woman, and this one, provided by netgalley, absolutely hit all the right notes for me.Things I loved about it oh, where to begin The hero Although he s a lovable rogue type, with an eye for the ladies, a deft hand with a sword I m sorry, I really had to slip that in and the inevitable backstory, the author writes him beautifully He s not really troubled by his past, and certainly not angst ridden, but just has regrets and memories that he can t shake off The author has written him correctly with long hair, black boots and tight breeches and an open necked frilly white shirt he wouldn t really be a romance pirate without that but he s not a cartoon Also, we don t dwell a huge amount on his backstory There is plenty of action and plot that goes on apart from that The heroine Of course, it s totally unrealistic that an admiral or any naval officer would have a female relative on board a ship of the line Sorry ladies, but the evidence is that it never happened to women other than non officers wives, who would have had to do work for their bread and rum, and sometimes probably sneaked on board if they had nowhere else to go, or no money BUT, it s just such a great trope and, boy, has this author ever created my absolutely favorite pirate s heroine She prefers wearing men s clothes and knows how to wield a sword absolute necessities in a pirate heroine IMO , but she also knows how to climb the rigging, and fire a cannon bonus points , and the real winner is used to the rough talk that sailors dish out including bartering to show her boobs to gain a favor from a sailor She couldn t be a lady if she wanted to and tried really hard She was just great The action So often, the combat part of pirate romances lets them down I ve found myself nearly shouting out where s the blood and gore on a couple of occasions whilst reading particularly fluffy ones Well, this one has great action Not as much as a Marsha Canham maybe, but there is enough to make you feel that the setting matches the characters and the plot You can almost smell the gunpowder and feel the ship recoiling from the cannon fire, and the pacing between the two points of view is absolutely excellent.Honestly, there wasn t anything I didn t not like, but there were a couple of minor things which had me scratching my head First one was why the awful title It s so uninspiring after all, all pirates were rogues really What made this one different Also, I have to admit the cover is gorgeous, but why the skirt on the heroine She spends the whole book running around in men s clothes AND she s supposed to have big boobs The last thing, and my biggest regret, was that we are told the heroine curses constantly, and, well, I really wish the author had actually come up with some really good, fruity curses and shared them with us.So, in all, I did really enjoy this one I actually have not read the others in the series I enjoyed this one so much that I went out and bought them straight off , but it didn t prevent me from enjoying this one at all Interaction with the characters from the other books was minimal, and it was a great standalone story It s also my first book by this author, and not my last I really like the way she writes She manages to go the full range of emotions, had me laughing out loud a couple of times, and actually choking up at one point, but it s not overly dramatic, or gothic or ridiculously angst ridden It s clearly written and is just a really nice, fun, pirate read.5 stars Loved it After her fiance dies at according to what she s been told the hands of the barbarous Captain Cutlass, Raeven Russell wants revenge But when

very bright future ahead of her and I can not wait to see what else she delivers 5 stars Favorite LOL quoteThere s nothing complicated about our relationship I hate you and want you dead eARC provided by Sourcebooks via netgalley.com and quote subject to change in final book This is a really great pirate story, and most of the story really takes place at sea If you re like me, you ve noticed that a lot of historicals claim to be about pirates, and there s hardly a pirate or ship in sight This is not like that at all, there s so much swashbuckling action, if you re into pirate tales, I highly recommend this book.Bastien is a gentleman pirate, not your typical rough looking sea captain, and Raeven is no shrinking violet that he s abducted She can hold her own just This is a really great pirate story, and most of the story really takes place at sea If you re like me, you ve noticed that a lot of historicals claim to be about pirates, and there s hardly a pirate or ship in sight This is not like that at all, there s so much swashbuckling action, if you re into pirate tales, I highly recommend this book.Bastien is a gentleman pirate, not your typical rough looking sea captain, and Raeven is no shrinking violet that he s abducted She can hold her own just as well as him, as the daughter of a British Naval Admiral who has spent her whole life on a ship I really liked that the characters were so well matched.I wasn t sure I was going to like Bastien at first, but then he started to be really sweet, and who can resist sweet nothings whispered in French Raeven showed a lot of growth, too In the beginning, she was so selfish and naively headstrong But she grew a lot and showed that she can really care about others besides herself.Sometimes the romance took a backseat to all the high seas action, but in this case it was okay because I love good pirate adventure If you are a fan of lots of adventure in your romances, this is a great book for you.A fun ride on the high seas
