Overview

Williamsburg: 1715.

Pirates. The scourge of the seas, attacking and stealing, raping and killing. The ship Lydia is on falls prey to pirates. Lydia must somehow find a way to survive, but she has nothing a pirate could want. Except her body.

In desperation, Lydia tempts the pirate captain to want her, to want her so violently and with such hungry desperation that he will not share her. So she will survive, a virgin on a pirate ship, an innocent for an hour, until the pirate takes her and makes her his own.

He think she's a whore and treats her as such. She knows him to be a pirate; he has killed and will kill again. But caught between violence and desire, survival and passion, these two find out they are something else, something beyond the lies they tell each other, and something more than the lies they want to believe about themselves.

    A reviewer

    The young, innocent, and beautiful Lydia McIntyre is traveling home to Williamsburg, Virginia from the Bahamas after caring for ill relatives when her ship is attacked by ruthless pirates. Bound to the hold of the ship she plans her survival. Fearing she will be taken by the entire pirate crew, she knows she must survive above all else. The dark, dangerous and handsome captain is her only chance to make it home alive. Knowing nothing of passion and desire she must somehow lure this captain to taking her. Danbridge Prentis, pirate hunter turned pirate, sees this lovely girl and knows what the crew would do. Lydia's plan works, as he sees only the desire in her eyes. Mistaking her for a practiced courtesan they spend endless nights of passion in his cabin. But many lies are told, as both Lydia and Dan are not what they seem. When Lydia eventually escapes the ship near the shores of Bath and makes her way back home to Williamsburg, litle does she know that Dan has been tracking her to her very door, as his family also happens to reside in Williamsburg. Lydia's parents know their daughter has suffered and have been worrying about her mood since her return. Their concerns deepen when they see Lydia's reaction to the nephew of the aristocratic Prentis family. Dan has returned to Williamsburg not only for Lydia, but to hunt for the individual who arranged to have him sail on a pirate ship to his death four years ago. He pursues Lydia for the lust and desire he cannot forget, as well as vengeance for the pirate life he was forced to live. Lies are told and truth is revealed in the end when Dan realizes his love for the beautiful Lydia. But is it too late to earn Lydia's love? Tell Me Lies is a passionate, sensual story of mystery and desire. A truly pleasurable read for those romance readers who enjoy a good pirate romance!

    could have been better

    Although I enjoyed the novel, I think that some parts of it were a bit slow and the dialogue was just a little too cheesy at times.

    Took too Long

    Okay the begining got my attention. I felt the most action of this book was the begining. The author went in strong, but the story started to weaken by the end of the book.

    WOW! DON'T MISS THIS BOOK!

    This is a beautifully written historical romance which keeps the reader engaged until the very last page. The author describes the world with eloquence, and her characters are well-developed and believable. I felt as though I was riding a thrilling roller-coaster--- Claudia Dain manages to maintain such a wonderful level of intensity throughout her story that you won't want to put this down! According to another review I read on the web, this book was on the verge of 'self-igniting'!! Looking forward to a sequel??!!

    Lusty Romance

    this book is excellent. i think you should read it if you like incredible romance and emtional turmoil. though the constant switch of narritive is a bit funny it is an over all good book for romancers to read.
