Growing up sheltered, Rosa Lee Almaida lived a carefree life after both she and her mother experienced a horrific ordeal on the seas, and in the middle of Africa, when she was only four years. Meeting her adoptive father was the only joyful and good experience as a result thereof; the man honored by all sailors on land and sea for his bravery and unconditional love. He was her hero, and a model for her future husband-to-be. Now, twenty years later, she is forced to return to the seas that claimed the lives of many, including her birth father.
Abducted from her parents’ castle in Portugal, Rosa Lee became the Falcon’s ransom―a brutal pirate king on the island of Madagascar―in exchange for her younger brother Pedro’s life. It was here she met the Falcon’s son, Roberto de Ville, a man equally fierce, albeit with a hidden agenda. Reliving her past during the voyage, she found herself admiring the pirate for his leadership and skills, but would she be able to look past his exterior to see the man for who he really was?
Through the inscriptions her parents left in their diaries, she made a choice to save her life. But in an unexpected turn of events, she had to trust him unconditionally, believing that her life would be spared when she gave herself over to the love and intimacy for the man she craved.
Taking Rosa Lee from Portugal, Roberto takes her to the Falcon on the Isle of St. Mary. From stories recounted by her brother, he came to one conclusion; she would be his. Throughout their time together, he came to admire Rosa Lee for her bravery during a daring escape, which reinforced his belief that she was the woman he’d waited for all his life. Roberto was more than willing to set his life as a pirate aside, but first a plan had to be set in motion―one that would change his live forever. However, he could trust only one man, Pierre, his second in command, to assist him in seeing his plan to the end.
Ultimately, the end result shocked Rosa Lee, and an important lesson was learned: Never judge a book by its cover.

This was one of the worse books I've forced myself to read, I hate being so negative but can't help it, the author needs to know. At the beginning the story is all over the place, from 1641 to 1624 to 1621, back and forth, many stories and memories are from these times are repeated sometimes more then once, I believe the author tried to use language from that time period but mixed In some modern stuff that just sounded silly. The writing is amateur, the book actually reads like a child's fairy tale.
Rosa Lee Almaida has once experienced a terrifying ordeal on the seas as a child. Twenty years later she returns to the seas, abducted from her parents’ castle in Portugal as she becomes part of a ransom to The Falcon, a Pirate King on the island of Madagascar. Fate and unexpected events turn the wheels, and Rosa falls in love with the Falcon’s son Roberto de Ville. Lynelle Clark masterfully developed their story, making me feel glued to each page right to the very end. ‘A Pirate’s Wife’ is an intricate tale that takes the reader through a provocative mix of events. It is seamlessly written, brimming with action and romance. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Definitely a must read that I highly recommend.
Ok, you can tell this was an "indie" book, written by a novice and edited by one also, that being said, it was a silly, piece of fluff for a quick (175page) fun read on a snowy day.... Yes, the premise was quite simplistic and rather unbelievable, the characters language for the time period was wrong, there were some blantant editing errors (one chapter was repeated) and the main character, Roberto, started out ruthless, but was actually incognito - which is explained at end, but needs to be addressed early on as his depiction was clearly evil in the beginning... This is merely a quick, romantic, fantasy, reminescent to me of books I would read in my youth....Not bad for a first try. Good luck on this any subsequent books you write and thanks for the free read! LjB
*An action packed romance with twists and turns... quite enjoyable
