Overview

Oh, those naughty rakes. With their wicked winks, sensual smiles, and bad boy habits, you just can’t take them out in polite society. But who wants to go out when you can stay in...? STOLEN PLEASURES
Sebastian Blake, Earl of Merrick, long ago fled the responsibilities of his title to become the infamous pirate, Captain Phoenix. But the booty he’s just captured on a merchant ship is a fierce tempered minx who claims to be a bride...his bride, married to him by proxy on behest of their fathers. He could shame his hated family and return his beautiful wife untouched, but no treasure has ever proved more tempting to Sebastian, and making their marriage a true one-in every sense-is his one urgent desire ... LUCIEN’S GAMBLE
Lucien Remington’s reputation as a debauched libertine who plays by no one’s rules-in business or the bedroom-is well deserved. He gets what he wants, social repudiation be damned. But society can keep from him the one thing he truly desires, the untouchable Lady Julienne La Coeur. Until she sneaks into his club dressed as a man and searching for her irresponsible brother. Suddenly she’s in Lucien’s grasp, his to take, and his mind is filled with the most wickedly sinful thoughts. A gentleman would walk away from the temptation she presents. But then, Lucien has never claimed to be a gentleman... HER MAD GRACE
Hugh La Coeur never wanted to be the Earl of Montrose. Wine, women, and a hefty wager are preferable to responsibility of any kind. It’s certainly preferable to spending the night in an eerie, neglected mansion owned by a legendary madwoman. The duchess’s companion, the fiercely independent Charlotte, is another matter altogether. Hugh would be happy to spend as many nights in her bed as possible. He knows she’s hiding terrible secrets, but for once in his life, Hugh has the desire to take on someone else’s burden as his own, no matter what the danger... They’re mad, bad, and totally irresistible...

    Highly Recommended

    Three great stories. Don't buy Luciens Gamble if you have this book. It's one of the three.

    Really good read

    I'm a new reader of Sylvia Day and really enjoyed this book. My favorite was the middle story called "Lucien's Gamble." But all 3 stories were very entertaining and well written. The men strong and vulnerable and the women were equally elucidated. I picked this book up with the intention of reading just one of the stories before I went to bed and ended up staying up almost all night to read it all. Highly recommended as well as everything by this author (Pleasures of the Day? I think was the title).

    THREE GOOD STORIES

    I picked up this book at 2am intending to only read a few pages so i started with the last story since it seemed shorter. All three stories are tied together so read from the first to the last. This is my first read of this author but won't be my last. All three men were rogues in the fullest sense and it was gratifying to see them become worthy of the ladies in the book.

    Sylvia Day a Rising Star in Historical Romance

    As a longtime romance reader, I thought I had read just about every story that could be told during the Regency period. Bad Boys Ahoy! proved me wrong, and hallelujah for that! // In the first novella, 'Stolen Pleasures,' pirate Sebastian steals a bride, only to discover she is his bride they've been married by proxy. The story takes an almost immediate turn from the norm. In some romances, the proxy marriage would be a secret for much of the story as part of a 'Big Secret' misunderstanding. // Instead, this issue is dealt with immediately, leaving the remainder of the story to focus on delving into two fascinating characters, Olivia and Sebastian. Olivia is not a standard simpering heroine. She is passionate, strong-willed, and astute, the perfect match for Sebastian. // I love the way Day creates compelling characters. Sebastian's reasons for becoming a pirate are complex, and Olivia comes to understand and know him perfectly. This story evokes a range of emotions and culminates in a sweet ending. // 'Lucien's Gamble' is the second novella. In it, Lucien discovers that Julienne has disguised herself as a man to enter his club. He has always wanted her, and he takes advantage of the surpring opportunity to make the biggest gamble of his life. // As in the first novella, this one features unconventional characters who fall in love. It's extremely satisfying to read Lucien's journey from believing he is not good for Julienne to realizing that he loves her and wants to be the one to make her happy. // Julienne is a rare historical heroine--a woman who knows what she wants and isn't afraid to pursue it. // The third novella is 'Her Mad Grace.' In this story, a snowstorm forces Hugh to take shelter at the house of a reclusive woman known as her mad Grace. Hugh meets Charlotte, a woman who introduces herself as a companion. // All three stories in this anthology are connected, and the hero in 'Her Mad Grace' is Julienne's brother. Years have passed since 'Lucien's Gamble,' and the snowstorm gives Hugh the opportunity to demonstrate responsibility and show that he can be relied on. // I found Hugh's vulnerability about being needed especially poignant, and a few scenes toward the end of the story brought tears to my eyes. Charlotte is a vivid heroine, and the scene where she shows Hugh how much she loves him is incredibly moving. // I can't say enough positive things about Bad Boys Ahoy! The characters are unique and you come to care about each one. In addition, Day writes lush and unforgettable love scenes that move the story along and keep the reader engaged. // Bad Boys Ahoy! introduces Sylvia Day as a vibrant new voice in historical romance. Long may she write!

The robust compassionate coruagoues women make for a fine time as they do not fear men who make other males hsake in fear and ladies tremble in anticipation. This is a fine ¿Bad Boys¿ entry.----- Harriet Klausner

    Wonderfully erotic historical romance

    STOLEN PLEASURES Imagine Sebastian Blake¿s surprise when he finds that he has just stolen his own wife from the ship he has just overtaken and pillaged. Although he is the most gorgeous man she has ever seen, Olivia doesn¿t want to believe that this dangerous pirate is the man she married by proxy just two weeks prior. After all, why would the Earl of Merrick be out pirating on the high seas? When Sebastian shows her that her wedding ring bears the same family crest as his own ring, it appears to be undeniable. Sebastian thinks that he will simply return Olivia and her father¿s ship to his care, but Olivia has other ideas. Despite the fact that the two of them have been deceived in this marriage, she wants to remain married to Sebastian, run his household and bear his children, while retaining more independence than she could possibly ask for in a conventional marriage. The two vow to remain together and their passion for one another is unending. Sebastian almost immediately disappears on his ship with a promise to return, and Olivia is left with a broken heart. By the time he returns, Olivia has been forced to face society on her own, some questioning the Earl of Merrick¿s existence, and she is furious. Sebastian fears for their future together and whether he can salvage his wife¿s love. Sebastian and Olivia are perfect for each other, his protectiveness of her is touching, and her adoration of him is equally heartwarming. LUCIEN¿S GAMBLE Lucien Remington is astounded at the brazenness of the beautiful young woman standing boldly in front of him in the office of his gentleman¿s club, dressed as a man no less. Julienne has come to his club in hopes of finding her brother, Hugh, and dragging him home before he gambles their family into even deeper debt. Lucien decides that he must find Julienne a suitable husband, but none of the names his solicitor comes up with will do. Eventually Lucien decides that he is the one who should court Julienne and quickly convinces her brother to assist him in his efforts in turn Lucien will excuse his gambling debts, one favor at a time. He fears that he may be too late in attempting to win Julienne¿s affections as there is another man, equally willing and able to take care of Julienne, who seeks her hand. Lucien is the product of a non-conventional love affair and has no title to offer Julienne, making him even more determined to prove that his love for her is true. Lucien and Julienne are absolutely adorable together. Both are unashamedly passionate and Lucien has to convince Julienne that he is willing to put his wicked ways behind him, which proves to be no easy task. Julienne wants to believe Lucien, but her love for him is so strong that she knows that her heart would break should he ever be unfaithful. HER MAD GRACE When Hugh Le Coeur finds himself stranded with a broken carriage wheel, his servant and his horse both injured, winter storm impending, he is forced to go to a nearby manor, the likes of which would have made a lesser man turn and flee. Dark and unkempt, it is the very stuff of haunted tales, and the house staff is the most improbable mix of misfits that he has ever seen. When a beautiful redhead by the name of Charlotte shows up with a carriage and men to assist him in fetching his servant, he is taken by her beauty. She insists that he spend the night, given the coming blizzard and when that one night turns into several, with the storm raging outside, passions ignite inside and Hugh and Charlotte are practically inseparable. Hugh wants to set Charlotte up as his mistress, a generous offer for sure, but she refrains for her own personal reasons. Hugh doesn¿t understand Charlotte¿s refusal, thinking she would be anxious to leave the dreadful manor and its quirky staff, but he is determined to change her mind. Sylvia Day shares her incredible writing talents with readers in this historical anthology. Her characters are excellently writte
