I love a good pirate book, so I was pretty thrilled to get my hands on this new one by Valerie Bowman. It is the 7th book in her “Playful Brides” series, but it works completely as a stand-alone. Twists, undercover identities and pirate sexy times? Yes, please!
I don’t want to give too much away because this one is so much fun to read and discover as you go, so I’ll keep this fairly brief. Danielle is a new lady’s maid, and the brother of the master of house is the “black sheep” rake of the family. He starts a flirtation with her and gets way more than he expected… That being said, there is SO MUCH MORE going on, and I think you will enjoy the game, the ups and downs, and the surprises as much as I did.
The plot drives this book which makes it a fast and fun read. The characters are interesting and have hidden depths, but this sure isn’t angsty. Reading this book is like watching an action/romance movie that you can’t look away from and can’t quit smiling about when it is all over. The pirate mention in the title is a tad bit of a misnomer because there is way more going on here than pirates, so if you don’t happen to be a fan of pirate stories, but like a great, fast plot, you should try this anyway, If you do like pirates, there is enough in there to satisfy.
The Bottom Line-
I literally put the book down and laughed out loud at one point, saying “oh my goodness, I am so glad that happened and can’t wait to see what happens next!” Imagine the odd stares I got from my high school students… Anyway, if you like your romance with a heavy dose of fun, great pacing, and twisty plots, this is so for you. 5 stars!
