    I wanted so badly to like this book I received it as a first reads giveaway and was looking forward to the rousing adventure I thought this book would be Unfortunately, my problem stems from my dislike of certain romance plot elements themselves, and that is difficult to overcome First what I liked about the book Roquet is an excellent writer and none of theintimate scenes are cheesy in the least One interesting thing I noted is that when the characters spoke, they were often describe I wanted so badly to like this book I received it as a first reads giveaway and was looking forward to the rousing adventure I thought this book would be Unfortunately, my problem stems from my dislike of certain romance plot elements themselves, and that is difficult to overcome First what I liked about the book Roquet is an excellent writer and none of theintimate scenes are cheesy in the least One interesting thing I noted is that when the characters spoke, they were often described as hissing or growling I thought this was interesting because you could really hear the words in your mind with these descriptors When the heroine went to some of the topical locals, I felt the the book really picked up and I wanted to spendtime exploring those places The mystery element was easy to figure out, but I wasn t bothered by this in particular Most of the characters were quite well formed and I wanted to knowabout some of theminor characters that I found fascinating I loved the pirates and Timothy, I would read a book about them If there were any historical inaccuracies were not noticeable as they are sometimes in historical fiction If you like books with the plot elements that I have a problem with, then you ll probably really like this book SPOILERS BELOW I realize than a common element of the romance novel is an alpha male exerting his dominion over the heroine In this quest there is a lot that I can forgive and still want the lovers to get back together Rape I can t forgive Once the Stephen raped our heroine in their first intimate encounter there was no way that I wanted them to be together Late in the book when he nearly makes her lose his child, my dislike of him was confirmed Throughout this book there are fantastic male characters, any one of which would have been better for her then Stephen The point of view of the book seems to be positing that she needed such an alpha male to become a woman That without being forced into it, she would never have seen any man as a potential lover If that s the case, she would have been better off remaining a virgin From the outside looking in Stephen is a jerk and our supposed heroine is some sort of abused woman who towards the end of the book blames herself for why their relationship isn t working With so many kind and lovable male characters, Stephen s jerky ness is amplified and it is was unclear to me why, besides his dashing good looks, that she would want to be with him at all He hurts her, physically and emotionally When they fight, he accuses her of playing games with him and is exasperated when she brings up the rape in response I can t want her to be with a man who never admits that he raped her To him it was just a beautiful, sensual experience What a jerk

    When I read the book details and it said that he takes her innocence, I was a little leery of what I could expect However, I was so pleased to see how it was handled and being told in 3rd person, Roquet lets us see into their minds and we can understand how this came to be The romance is HOT, the love scenes are to die for But the warm and sweet scenes and comedy that is part of the story is so great also I found myself with a smile on my face or laughing out loud at Desiree and some of her When I read the book details and it said that he takes her innocence, I was a little leery of what I could expect However, I was so pleased to see how it was handled and being told in 3rd person, Roquet lets us see into their minds and we can understand how this came to be The romance is HOT, the love scenes are to die for But the warm and sweet scenes and comedy that is part of the story is so great also I found myself with a smile on my face or laughing out loud at Desiree and some of her situations She is just adorable So refreshing And Stephen Colter is such a man s man From what I have been able to find online, the sequel is in the works withabout Timothy Colter Yah

    I really enjoyed this book It is full of all sorts of emotions and kept me hooked until the very end I also loved how descriptive it was I easily pictured the story in my head There are certain areas in the story that angered me at times, but that ispersonal thoughts then with the writing Also, the story and it s elements have to be looked at in the time period.There are places where the book could use a bitediting due to typos, grammar, etc., but all in all a very good read.
