    Fantastic pirate adventure/romance!!!

    This pirate adventure/love story was full of amazing detail. It was a long story, and there are so many colorful characters and plots that I was never quite sure who were the heroes and villains in it. The love, nor violence were particularly gratuitous, but still painted a clear enough picture that you felt it's impact to the story. Courtney was a fantastic heroine and Adrian was a strong and worthy hero. Definitely worth the read!!!

    really good book

    If you are reading just for sexy romance, this is not it. This is a swash bulking pirate romance. Adventure all the way. Starts out slow but then you can't put it down. Not the typical romance novel.

    This book was awesome!

    I read somewhere in the reviews when I was about to buy this book, where somebody said this was a swashbuckling tale and if you are looking for romance it wasn't here. Well I'm here to tell you, it was a tale of adventure true, but there was some pretty steamy love scenes to take your breath away!

    I actually have read several books by this author, 8 or 9 so far, and I can tell you she NEVER disappoints! So far I have only read one that was less than 1000 pages (it was a few pages shy of 1000)! This one on my nook was nearly 1700 pages long. Now to me I really feel like I am getting my moneys worth!!

    I will FOREVER be a huge fan of Mrs Canham. I can honestly say that I don't know how she comes up with this stuff. I can't imagine the amount of research she has to do to write these books, in order to provide such vivid descriptions!

    In short, I say, Buy this book. You will NOT be disappointed!!!

    Beauty

    Let me start by saying that this is the first time i have enjoyed reading about history. I read a book about the main charected posing as a boy before, but this book was actually what i was craving to read.

    Once you start reading it, you can't put it down. Courtney is a strong independen, loving woman, the kind that u wish would be your friend. Adrian is the kind of man that is on everywomans best dreams, he's strong, smart, what a body !!!.

    The book was well thought out, the detail of the writing makes you feel like you are part of the story. The best part is that the story is not focus just on the two main charecters, the background charecters are not just washed out in the back as an after thought, they are very much part of the story and keep you wondering what's going to happen next.

    LOVED IT !!!
