Overview

The Pirate Prince (Ascension Trilogy Series #1) by Gaelen Foley

On a calm moonlit night, as the scent of jasmine and pine embraced the island of Ascension, the pirate prince Lazar di Fiori returns with lethal grace to avenge what was stolen from him: his kingdom, his birthright, his soul. . . .

Allegra Monteverdi, the daughter of Lazar's sworn enemy, proves an uncommonly powerful adversary. She throws herself on his mercy, her courage and beauty touching his cold, unforgiving heart. He agrees to spare the lives of her family--but only if Allegra sails away with him as his captive. For his quest for vengeance still burns fiercely, and he will settle for nothing less than Allegra's body and soul.

Alone at sea with this dark, intriguing man, moving between seduction and fear, Allegra gazes into eyes as deep and mysterious as the night and sees who this pirate really is. Lazar--the prince of her childhood dreams. Though he was rumored to be murdered years ago, she always believed someday he would return. But it will take more than her love for this pirate prince to bring peace to her beloved home. For Lazar must face the demons of his shattered past--if he is to forge the destiny that is theirs to claim. . . .

Gaelen Foley knows her history and puts it into romance for us. This is the 3rd in her Prince series and it is just as good as the previous 3. She knows how to make you fall in love with the characters and want to keep reading.

This book was good at first¿ I mean there was passion and their was chemistry and it seemed like everyone would get along. It becomes evident to the reader that the lead character Lazar di Fiori had his inner demons (after all, what romance hero doesn¿t), but there was something about this character that screamed to me `Leave him be¿. Our heroin, like all romance heroines tries to convince Lazar that he should face his terrible inner demons and put himself through hell to please her child hood dreams of him as her perfect prince. The problem is he isn¿t and throughout the book it doesn¿t seem like he ever wants to be. The book felt to me like Lazar was sacrificing his whole life for this `love¿ of his. If she really loved him, would she hold herself back like she does and tries to change him like she does? I don¿t think so. This book became tedious after the first 250 pages. I got tired of the fact that Lazar had to change himself and sacrifice so much of his self. Normally in a romance, when the heroin pushes her outcast lover to claim his rightful throne he in a way wants to. With Lazar that need was not there¿. He was being bullied into it. The book has its passionate moments, although not many, and the beginning was pretty entertaining. So for that I give it 3 stars, but I wish I didn¿t pay $8 for this book¿..

This is book is amazing although I would not recommend it for anyone that is under 15. Lavar is a kind of person any girl dreams of. I know throughout the entire story I was wishing he was real. The author is positively wonderful and I cannot wait to read another one of her books!!

Beautifully written. Love, honor, intrigue, war, and passion! Characters are flawed, bad guys are believable, and love is pure. Brava!

I enjoyed the characters overall and the twisting plot. I did have concern by how much effort the heroin put into changing our hero. I ended up feeling bad for him and started hating her. But I suppose that is what some do in the name of love. There are steamy romance scenes that I think flowed with the story. I do recommend this book. I have read it twice now.

Meh. I don't think there was anything too amazing about this one. I did love that the love story started off very soon in the story. But as it usually goes in these books, he had to go and screw it up. This wasn't a gripping edge of your seat taale for me, like I thought it would have been from the blurb. It was just ok.

Grreat book but a lot of suffering and pain for the hero who had to go to hell and back for a naive idealistic woman just to prove he was worthy to be himself. Did love it though

I would have to say this is one of my favorite books of all time. Although I am not a fan of Foley's other series or books, this one and its sequel, Princessa are amazing. Foley captures love, passion, and intrigue on every page. It was more than easy to fall for Lazar, and admire Allegra. I can not stress to anyone enough that this book was fantastic and worth the read. It will leave you wanting more, and wishing for a more satisfying love life.
