“Ever f*cked a pirate?”
He was insufferable, deeply scarred, and frustratingly gorgeous, and he was the man who was blackmailing her into tying the knot.
Cora Harris has never had luck with men. Being the daughter of a ruthless crime boss tended to put a dent in any relationship, but she never imagined she’d get kidnapped in the dead of night by pirates. She sure as hell never imagined the asshole with the smoldering gaze would threaten everyone she loved if she didn’t become his wife.
Only Captain James Crow wants more than just her hand in holy matrimony. He wants her absolute submission. He wants her pain. He wants the one thing she’s never given anyone — her heart. But is he willing to give the daughter of his sworn enemy his in return?
“How easily his eyes could make her forget that he was her captor. Not her savior.”
But when the truth is revealed, can James keep Cora from the true evil in their midst? Can he win before his revenge cost him more than just his life? And how far will Cora go to free herself of the man who enchanted her, seduced her, and when she submitted, imprisoned her?
Vengeance and betrayal will either bring two warring families together or obliterate them all.
This book is adult and intended for a mature audience with strong elements of language, sex, and a dirty mouthed pirate. It has cases of BDSM, kink, and violence.
I have mixed feelings about this book, but not because of the writing or the plot. I’ll get to the reasons why in a second. If you are looking for a steamy, romantic suspense, this this is for you.
Let me start with the good things. Cora, our heroine, is strong-willed and independent to the point of go her own way in life over the family business. I loved the plot, which I will not give away, because that’s not fair to you. There’s a little of everything – pirates, mafia, hot sex and strong family ties. The plot is great with tons of suspense.
So, now to why I have mixed feelings. First, the relationship between Cora and James drove me crazy. He did some really horrible things to her and yet she falls in love with him? I know that isn’t an unusual trope, but for some reason, this one did not sit well with me. James’s idea of punishment was brutal most of the time. It just wasn’t for me. I have read dark romances before that a less brutal component to it. There was one scene in Cora’s apartment after she ran away and I nearly stopped reading. BDSM written a certain way I can enjoy, but this was not it.
All that being said, it was a really good book. Once James and Cora got their stuff together and started heading in the right direction, I had a hard time putting it down (except for a few other scenes).
A dark, romantic suspense with lots of heat danger and suspense!
