After reading a couple of other pirate romances ('Island Flame' and 'Sea Fire' by Karen Robards), which frankly left me feeling as if I should apologize to someone for reading such junk, it was a real pleasure to read 'The Iron Rose'. This is a sequel to 'Across the Sea of Stars', but it stands very well on its own. As other reviewers have noted, this is a gender-bender; the heroine is a pirate captain and, at first glance, the hero is a somewhat foppish member of the nobility. However, as the story is developed, these two characters are much more than what appears on the surface, and this is the main reason why I liked the book so much. Ms. Canham knows how to tell a story with real fully-developed characters (and this includes many of the secondary characters) whom the reader wants to know more about. I've read most of Ms. Canham's other books--this one is the best so far!

In the top 5 of my favorite books. I love it when the women kick butt, and Juliet is great!

This book was interesting at first. but as it started forming shape the heroine took too much control and i dont like it when women do that in books. its ok to be stubborn n give men a hard time to lie with them but she was too willing and he was like a puppy drooling over the bone she was swingin between her fingers. such waste of a man... :( but i do like her other books... Ms. Canham is a good writer... it is just that i didnt like the plot in this book

Honestly, I have read better and I have read worse. I bought this book after reading the Robin Hood series by the same author. I really enjoyed those books. The problem that I have with this book, the second one in the Pirate Wolf series is the extreme dominance that the heroine displays. The first book was about her mother and father, and her mother was also a very independent person, but you also caught glimpses of vulnerability in her mother, the fact that she had feelings if you will. Also in the first one, her father was a strong hero. In this book however, the heroine, Juliet, comes off as a very tough, in your face, only using the hero, Varian, for sex and as an object to beat up and humiliate, which she did on numerous occasions. I don't have a problem with a strong heroine, but when it constantly makes the hero look like a big wimp, then I have a hard time buying it. It would of been a little different if she was tough with everyone and not kicking the hero's butt all the time, or if the hero had been tougher, but I had a hard time understanding what they saw in each other. Why did he find a woman who continually bested him attractive? How did she find a man who was obviously weaker than herself desirable? Yes, the writing was well done; the author was honest, she did not talk about them bathing every day, their were blood-sucking insects on their tropical paradise, people were sweating, but the extreme dominance over a hero that was already portrayed as a weaker man to begin with was hard to get past. The author could not seem to make up her mind, at one point Varian had been a military leader in the army for nine years, a hardened soldier, and the next he was in a scissors hold being choked to death between Juliet's legs. Bottom line, it was too unbelievable and I sit in wonder at the amount of good ratings it got, I wonder if we all read the same book. I read the rating that was posted below on August 6, 2003, i should of heeded that person's words, because everything she wrote was true.
