This is the 2nd novel by Kat Martin I purchased via B & N. I also read ¿ ¿Innocence Undone¿ by this author and reviewed it earlier. I thought this author had promise as her story lines have some depth and her characters very animated. I was hopeful that this next book would be more developed and have deeper character interests than the first book I read. Unfortunately¿I liked it even less. Some of the reviews noted that the book had wit, the story line was gripping, the love between the two emotional etc¿¿I did not find any of that to be the case. The book actually started out much better than the middle and ending. Reason¿at least in the beginning Ethan was a dashing pirateer who sailed the high seas, taking his rightful bounty and protecting his men. In turn, Grace was a strong, independent and thinking woman who was feisty and bold upon her capture from the pirate captain Ethan. Their early meetings had fire works, interesting dialogue and thoughtful insights as to what each was thinking about the other. They got together very early in the book physically and once they both went back to land and took up their original wealthy lives well¿the story got dull. Grace suddenly turned into this boring and un-spirited miss once she got pregnant and married Ethan. Instead of taking control of her life and destiny, she seems to allow him to control everything which is at odds with the girl we first meet in the book who will do anything to save her father¿s life, will bribe pirates to let her go, swim across cold waters to save herself etc. Where did that girl with fire and zest go? It¿s a mystery. In turn, Ethan turns into this dull land locked fella who constantly denies how he feels about Grace and runs from her at every opportunity once he is forced into marrying her over the child. Even after his child is born he remains cold, aloof and distant through most of the book. I don¿t enjoy novels that dwell only on the physical sides of relationships ¿ sex, sex, sex. That¿s all this book was about ¿ how much he wanted her physically (rarely about liking her, enjoying her, loving her, etc.). In turn, she loves him early on but, doesn¿t seem to fight for what she wants they way she should have. The two of them have plenty of intimate scenes but, without real emotion or deep love¿the lust they share feels a bit empty. The ending of the story was also neat and tidy ¿ too perfect to really be of interest. Many fans who like her books will probably be used to this style of writing and might enjoy this read. It just wasn¿t for me. I wanted to root Grace and Ethan on as characters but, there just wasn¿t enough interest or depth to the story or them to do that. Why the pearl and diamond necklace mentioned all the time in the story had more depth and insight than the hero and heroine - that's a pity. I look for a complete read - story, characters,intriguing emotions and intimacy - this book lacked most of these things. Wish I could give higher stars but, I¿ll look elsewhere for writers who appeal to me at a higher level.

This book is enjoyable and pulled at my heartstrings a few times. Small gaps are missing from the ebook version and can be annoying. Get the paperback versin if you can.
