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.
from the back cover: On a calm moonlit night, as the scent of jasmine and pine embraces the island of Ascension, the pirate prince Lazar di fiore returns with lethal grace to avenge what was stolen from him: his kingdom, his birthright, his soul... When Allegra Monteverdi, the daughter of Lazar's sworn enemy, throws herself on his mercy, Lazar agrees to spare the lives of her family--but only if Allegra sails away with him as his captive.
The first and best book in her Ascension trilogy. Loved the hero.
An exciting, romantic adventure!
