Carrie Ann, Smoocher's Voice LGBTQ Book Reviews


A man abused and discarded is left to rebuild himself with naught but vengeance in his heart. A youth cruelly torn from all he knew and loved is cast adrift with no hope for the future. What will happen when Fate thrusts them together?

He is known as Ruaidhri and his extraordinary strengths and stamina are said to be born of the Devil. His ferocity is matched solely by his ruthlessness. For seven years, he has sailed his ship the Taibhse with one goal in mind: to avenge the years of torment he suffered at the hands of a depraved Danish lord. He has one final plan to succeed, but he searches yet for the implement.

His family destroyed by violence and his body enslaved to a brutal master, Andrew’s future promises only misery. He is saved from this desolate fate by a pirate captain with fiery hair and an ultimatum; help him achieve his revenge and go free, or be sent to a horrific, painful death. As Andrew struggles with the choice of slave or assassin, he finds that all is not as it seems aboard the corsair’s ship.

Pain is tempered by pleasure and loss consumed by love in the flames stoked by

…The Red King.

Warning: this is an erotic m/m romance intended for mature audiences. It contains explicit sexual situations, frank language, dubious consent, torture, and non-graphic descriptions of abuse of a minor.

    I. Love. This. Book! The Red King is a m/m love story set on the high
    seas. In the 1600s, Rory, also called Ruaidhri (the Red King), escapes
    from sexual bondage and slavery to create a new life as pirate and
    captain of the Taibhse ("Ghost"). Although now feared and
    respected, Rory shuns love, obsessed with taking revenge on the man,
    Maarten Jan de Wortt, who nearly destroyed him. When Rory's crew
    captures Andrew, a beautiful young man raised by cloistered holy men,
    Rory sees Andrew only as a potential weapon in his all-consuming quest
    for vengeance. But Andrew, although brought up to lead a simple life now
    lost to him, is no simpleton. What begins as mutual lust and
    self-interest slowly turns into something deeper, forcing Rory to decide
    which is more important: his long-awaited vengeance, or Andrew? What
    else can I say? This book satisfied me on every level. It's
    well-written, packed with accurate historical details and features a
    great supporting cast, not to mention a villain so evil, I wanted to
    kill him, bury him, dig him up and kill him again. But most of all, The
    Red King delivers two wonderful heroes: Rory, indomitable on the outside
    but broken on the inside, and Andrew, untutored in the ways of the
    world, yet emotionally fearless. Together they make an unforgettable
    couple. The Red King is filled with adventure, humor, angst, sex and
    most of all, romance. If you adore m/m romance as much as I do, give
    this book a try.
