Overview

RWA RITA nominated Historical Romance Novel from New York Times Bestselling Author Susan Sizemore

Sherrie Hamilton is a woman with a scandalous secret past. When she travels to London for a Season of helping to launch her cousins on the marriage mart, she runs into her past. Literally. In the one place she never expected to find a pirate, she encounters the sensuous rogue who kept her as his lover years before.

Jack PenMartyn, Earl of PenMartyn, seeks to put his wicked past raiding the China Sea behind him. One thing he can't forget is the young woman whose pure innocence he stole; the woman who is the mother of the child he never knew he had.

He knows that with one false word, Sherrie will expose the secrets of his past. But does he dare to hope that she will give in to the temptation of their reckless passion for a future together?

    I have been reading romance novels for well over 20 years.  Most

    I have been reading romance novels for well over 20 years.  Most are the standard format.  This book went against the grain and was one of the most enjoyable books I have read in a long time.  I didn't want to put it down.
    Normally, I HATE books with children as supporting characters.  I thought that the author created a wonderful character in Mini.  I want to know what happened to Mini when she grew up.

    There were flashbacks in the book.  They helped explain the main characters history in an creative way.

    Intriguing!

    This is older release of Ms.Sizemore, which originally was released in 1996. It was release din the kindle format in December of 2011. I think the story transferred rather well, 15 years later. The book opens with this great mystery as to who Sherrie and Jack are to each other, and what has happened to make them so. The passion and chemistry between them is undeniable and extremely hot.

    I was a little lost to begin with, but as the book continues, more and more is revealed, and what you find out is just as intriguing. Ms.Sizemore makes it very easy to understand why Jack is torturing himself. I only wish the book had been longer. I checked and couldn't find if there were sequels about Sherrie's cousins or even a prequel. I do wish there had been. I would have loved to read about the Scottish inspector, Sherrie's cousins and Jack's motley servants, Ira and May Gartner, and especially Llhasi and Minerva. But this is a book that stands the test of time, something to commend it.

    Great romance with unique story

    Years ago Jack was a pirate and attacked a Malay war junk to steal whatever treasure it had on board. Sherrie was the treasure; she was kidnapped and locked in a cage, the plan being to sell her to a Singapore brothel. Jack could stick with that plan and sell her to the highest bidder but instead he makes her a proposition. She agrees to belong to him for one month, at the end of the month he’ll release her.

    This book picks up on their story 9 years later when the meet again in London.

    Sherrie has the facade of a respectable widow, underneath she is anything but. She’s seen and done so much in her life that nothing scares her anymore. She approaches life as an adventure and she is going to enjoy it. She was helpless in her past but has overcome that to become a dominant, independent and powerful woman.

    Jack is racked with guilt. He hates the things he has done in the past and cannot forgive himself. Nobody really knows who or what he is, including Jack himself.

    I’m going to describe this book in two parts, the first half and the second half. I was a little bored with the first half due to all the inner dialogue and flashbacks. The experiences and stories both characters had from Asia were what kept me going. The Asian connection intrigued me because it’s so different from other historical romances. No doubt about it, this book is unique. I instantly liked Sherrie but had a hard time with Jack because he was so difficult to understand and came across as one dimensional.

    It is a slow read in the beginning because of all the flashbacks and the way Jack and Sherrie are dancing around each other while nothing concrete is happening. Once you’re finally caught up on their history and they actually have a meaningful conversation, the story picks up fast. All the details in the first half of the book are building up for what is to come. Everything starts to come together and the second half of this book is where I was really pulled into the story. That’s when I decided I loved both Sherrie and Jack. They have such a strong animalistic and passionate attraction, it feels right and makes you root for them. I always enjoy seeing two strong-willed people battle each other and themselves before finding their happiness together.

    It’s a fun and interesting book packed with action. I’m glad I took a chance on it, I thoroughly enjoyed it and didn’t want it to end!
