With languid tropical breezes caressing her breathtakingly beautiful face, Bettina Verlaine stood before the mast, sailing westward to fulfill a promise her heart never made--marriage to a Count her eyes had never beheld. Then in a moment of swashbuckling courage, the pirate Tristan swept her away and the spell of his passion was cast over her heart forever. But many days--and fiery nights--must pass before their love could flower into that fragile blossom a woman gives to only one man.
Well we can’t have a pirate feature without talking about Johanna Lindsey – reader favourite, queen of bodice rippers and pirate romances. I have read this one a long time ago and the book was overall an ok read and I do remember some rapey moments that bothered me….I read this one when I started reading romances so it will be interesting to re-read a bodice ripper and see how I feel about it…Common features of being kidnapped by a pirate while the heroine is on her way to her betrothed can be expected in this pirate romance!
Warning: This is a bodice ripper guys so please be mindful that the content might be disturbing to some.
