Overview

She would marry no man . . .

Serena Carlyle dreams of a happily ever after. Firmly upon the shelf at twenty-five, instead she's determined to find the perfect match for her beautiful younger sister. What better prospect than their neighbor, the wealthy, rakishly handsome Earl of Savege? Now Serena can beg his help in halting a local band of smugglers. Then, one night, stealing away from yet another disappointing ball, Serena finds herself trapped alone with a stranger . . .

Until he captured her—body and soul

His kiss was irresistible, his caress unforgettable, and he hides a devastating secret. A Robin Hood upon the sea, Alex Savege is the brazen pirate Redstone, seizing the yachts of spoiled noblemen to settle an old debt. Serena needs a hero, but her heart is in the gravest danger—for it is soon to be captured by a man as skilled at seduction as he is at plunder.

Twenty five years old Miss Serena Carlyle is okay with the knowledge that she is on the shelf. Her plan is to see her younger stepsister Charity marries the prefect man. She thinks their neighbor wealthy hunk Alex Savege is the right person; though a rogue he is an earl. However, Serena may not have chosen the earl if she knew about his secret life as Redstone the pirate raiding the yachts of the wealthy to help the poor. Still she asks Alex to help end ruthless smugglers from plundering the coast. He agrees, but she is unprepared for this pirate plundering her heart one kiss at a time. Although the theme of a pirate romance prate between aristocratic neighbors has been used before (see The Pirate Next Door by Jennifer Ashley), Katherine Ashe keeps it fresh due to the spinster's antics based on her premise he rejects that the earl is perfect for her stepsister. The story line is fast-paced from the moment the earl stepped into the room and never slows down as the lead couple duel with wit and love in Ms. Ashe's wonderful historical. Harriet Klausner

I really enjoyed this book by Katharine Ashe, revisiting characters from previous books, falling in love/lust with the hero, and laughing aloud.

A vibrant heroine, a dashing, sensual and vulnerable hero all in one - I couldn't have asked for more. Adventure, mystery, well-written and just enough suspense without driving you crazy. I loved it and will probably reread every year. More, please (but with new characters!)

Loved it! Lots of great adventure on dramatic cliffs, tons of excellent chemistry between Serena and Alex. If you like the classic fairy-tales with evil step-mothers, gallant heroes, and the tough-as-nails heroines who deal with it all and come out happy in the end, you'll love this story!

The pirate Redstone and the Earl of Savege are both Alex - Alex Savege. Alex Savege and Serena Carlyle have a chance encounter and are smitten with one another. But Serena finds out that Alex is betrothed to her younger sister Charity. Is Alex and Serena's love doomed? This is a book that I won at a pirate workshop at the RT Booklovers' Convention in 2011 in Los Angeles, and I was SO excited to have won it. This was the first book of Katherine Ashe's that I'd ever read, and I was impressed by the depth of the fictional world she's created. This book is exceptionally well-written and captivating. Also, there is something incredibly alluring about a noble whose alias is a pirate who attacks the ships of other nobles. I really like that Ashe created a different kind of heroine than the supermodel run-of-the-mill sort. With delightful plot twists and a strong, saucy heroine, this is one that will keep you up long into the night, unable to stop turning pages. Now, after reading this book, I want to be captured by a rogue lord too! -Torchlight Reviews
