Both this book and the seuel The Iron Rose are on my top ten most highly recommended historical romances list I was never much of a fan of pirate romances especially lady pirate romances Remember Fern Michaels Captive series AckUnfortunately that series all too easily comes to mind when I think of any sort of pirate book The mere mention of lady pirate books would have me diving for cover behind the potted palms After a long hiatus from Historical romance of any sub genre I started reading them again just a few years ago and on the basis of a great review from The Romance Reader I decided to give Marsha Canham's pirate books a try It's probably the understatement of the century to say that I'm glad I didIsabeau Spence is the daughter of privateer Captain Jonas Spence and an amazingly gifted ship's pilot and cartographer When they come across a disabled and sinking ship they stop to help the injured crew completely unaware that they and their ship have just fallen into the hands of one Simon Dante the infamous Pirate Wolf Dante informs Jonas and Isabeau that he means to commandeer their ship to seek revenge on the man who betrayed him to the SpanishThis book is set during the Elizabethan period not my favorite period for historical romance but Ms Canham handles it deftly with great and accurate attention to historical detail and that genuinely old time swashbuckling feel than a little reminiscent of an old Errol Flynn film take your pick I think this is probably my favorite thing about Canham's writing in general practically everything she writes has that highly visual cinematic feel to it The naval battles are so incredibly descriptive and well written you'd almost swear she has survived a few of them herself And the developing romance between Simon and Isabeau is signature Marsha Canham engrossing and H O TThe secondary characters are as always well written uirky funny very real and serve to greatly enrich the story overallI highly recommend picking up this book and the seuel even especially if the pirate themed romances of yesteryear have left you somewhat under enthused with the prospect of trying This series is everything good pirate romances should be but so freuently aren't; engrossing evocative highly visual This woman should be writing screenplays

Re read for challenge 2019 KeeperWish I could add one starloved it better the second timeThere are a lot of really good pirate romances out there to read and they usually start off with the hero CaptainPirate who is ruthless cunning saving capturing and kidnapping the Heroine be she demure or spitfire hellion My favorite to read is when said he arrogant pirate meets his match with said she pirate The story opens with Captain Dante his crew who have nearly lost their lives as well as the ship due to being betrayed by his partner When all seems lost Captain Spence his crew his daughter Beau come upon the badly damaged ship Dante trusting no one now takes control of their ship so he can transfer his precious cargo before it sinks with his shipThere is much sparring between the captains and Beau they their crew set out to help Dante to find his betrayer reap the rewards This author sure knows how to tell about battles at sea the way she describes them throughout the book was like being thereYou could feel the recoil of the cannons and smell the gunpowder the masts above as they splinter when fired upon What follows is lots of swashbuckling adventureMost of all great chemistry between two fiery souls the secondary characters were also fun The history was very informative and the story behind ueen Elizabeth her sea hawks the time period itself was very interesting I'm looking forward to reading the 2nd book in the series Highly recommend for those who love a good swashbuckling pirate romance
