Excellent book! As a longtime fan of this author in her alter-ego, Sherrilyn Kenyon, I couldn't wait to read her "other" books if for no reason but to see if they were as good. You wouldn't even know that Sherrilyn Kenyon and Kinley MacGregor are one and the same, but yes, Kinley's books are just as good as Sherrilyn's...they're just written with a very different voice and without the graphic sexual content contained in the Dark Hunter or BAD series.
Lively heroine, good hero, set in colonial South Caroline and the high seas. Southern lady helps her beau, son of a naval commander, to trap a pirate. Pirate has a grudge against the naval dude and takes the lady as hostage to bait a trap. Lots of funny highjinx despite a rather dark history of pirating and childhood trama.
This is my first book by this author and I'll definitely be reading more by her! It was a very entertaining story with a predictable ending but the ending had a nice little twist to it. However, I did feel that one of the character's "misdeeds" was not addressed but overlooked in order to tie up the story hence making the ending somewhat hard to swallow. But all in all I enjoyed the book!
All lovely Lorelei Dupree had in mind was helping her fiance and the city of Charleston by setting a trap for the infamouse pirate Black Jack Rhys. She certainly never intended to let him kidnpa her. And she most definitely had no intention of losing her heart to a man so skilled in the arts of love that they called him the master of seduction.
Black Jack Rhys had a score to settle with an old enemy. Kidnapping his adversary's fiancee seemed like the perfect answer. But the man who'd won the hearts of a thousand woman hadn't counted on falling in love himself...
