Overview

Even the Hell’s Angel needs a guardian and English Privateer Blac Barclay is unwillingly recruited for the job in this high seas adventure.


Now Blac must choose between revenge against the British Lieutenant who’d ruined his family or keeping his word to the pirate who’d saved his life. Escorting the pirate’s daughter to her grandfather’s care becomes impossible when the little wanton steals his ship. Ordered by the Lieutenant to retrieve the woman they call the Hell’s Angel, Blac is determined to honor his word to his friend and use the wayward wanton as bait. But will his plan cost him the only woman to ever steal his heart?


When Angel De’haviland’s father is imprisoned with charges of piracy, the pirate’s daughter commandeers a British privateer’s ship and plans to kidnap a high ranking official to ransom for her father’s release. But her attempted abduction is foiled by the very captain whose ship she’d stolen, and she becomes a captive herself. Now she must trust her handsome captor to free her father as he leads her right into the Wrong Kind of Paradise.

Suzie looks forward to each new obstacle.

Taking life by the proverbial horns, Suzie now lives happily ever after with her new beau, three boys, and one little Shih tzu named Peppy Le’Pew in NC. One day she plans to retire and sail along the east coast, an adventurer to the end.

Review by Robin: Pirates, Adventure, Kidnapping and Romance, what more can you ask of a story. Ms. Grant has a way of writing such strong characters that get wrapped up in their lives and you don't want to leave. Hell's Angel as Angel De'Haviland, is now known needs a Guardian. Who better to be her guardian, than the man she has been in love with her whole life, English Privateer Blac Barclay. Tall, dark and extreme blue eyes, Blac also happens to be her dad's best friend. Blac is torn between the revenge of a Lieutenant and the pirate who saved his life. Somehow revenge gets lost along the way and replaced by his loyalty to Angel's father. Angel's father Logan is captured, giving sole guardianship to Blac. Angel thinking that Blac betrayed her father ends up stealing his ship and becoming captain of said ship. Angel has her own plans to steal a high ranking official and use a ransom to have her father released. Two years Blac chases her around the high seas. When they finally meet up he ends up kidnapping her back where he tries to fulfill his promise to her father and take her to her rich English grandfather so that she can then be raised as a proper lady. All good plans collapse and these are no different. Blac falls for this little Hellion just as she has fallen for him or should I say it has always been him for her. Throughout all the adventures and mishaps along the way they truly fall in love. As they soon realize that they are a perfect fit. The adventure leads them to betrayal by a family member, where a price has been put upon her head. It is a very riveting story that takes us on an action filled adventure, with plenty of romance along the way. Ms. Grant has written a must read for anyone who loves the pirate in us all.

Suzie Grant is an amazing author! She captivated me into reading her book in one sitting! I just couldn't put it down! It is filled with fast-paced action, treachery, deceit, romance, and a heroine named Hell's Angel! I definately cannot wait for the next one in the series to come out!

Suzie Grant brings, the high seas, pirates, romance all together. Twists and turns, ups and downs and then find out something MAJORLY unexpected. This story keeps you glued to your seat and the ending is not what you would expect. Great Read!

If you're looking for a fast-paced adventure, this is it. When Angel De'haviland's father is arrested for charges of piracy and she commandeers a British privateer's, captain Blac Barclay's ship. Blac is furious and swears he'll recapture the ship and bring the girl in to the Leiutenant who's captured her father. After a two year cat and mouse chase he catches up to her in Port Royal and learns of her plans to kidnap a British commander to barter for her father's release. But Blac turns the tables on her and captures her instead. This is where the plot thickens and Blac makes plans to send her to grandfather's care until he can negotiate her father's release. Only someone is trying to kill her and Blac finds himself falling in love with her. Thier long history together creates a poignant relationship between the two as thier relationship deepens and changes. Despite all the action and adventure we get a glimpse of a real relationship, a deepening of affection and a chance to get to know each character deeply. I truly enjoyed Miss Grant's adventure and I am looking forward to many more. She's become one of my favorite authors. If you're looking for a wild ride, look no further. Jaxy Branscom
