A wonderful, historical romance, set in 1842, about a beautiful, aristocratic young lady from England who is kidnapped on the high seas during a pirate attack. The young, notorious American captain of the pirate ship breaks his own rule of never taking captives and decides to stake his claim on the headstrong beauty and stows her away in his cabin for himself. Their wild, passionate story sizzles with fire and ice and is hard to put down!
I love reading romance novels. Island Flame by Karen Robards is one of my favorite books. It takes place in 1842 in Portugal. This novel is great and forces you to use your imagination. The book is sweet and fiery at the same time. It kept me hooked all throughout the book.
The book is about a beautiful girl who was on a route to London because her father thought it was good for her to go stay with her sister. She was only seventeen and was getting ready to get married; probably some Duke since her father was England's Ambassador of Portugal. Her name was Lady Catherine Aldley and she knew she was gorgeous and wanted by almost all men. She was sweet and kind when she wanted to be, but she was also stubborn and had quite a temper, the only other person who knew that was her nurse, Martha. Martha took care of Catherine since she can remember and has been a mother to her, since sadly enough Catherine's mother died ten years ago. Karen brings you through an adventurous ride of a love from a pirate to that of a pampered girl "Vowing that she would make him a prisoner of desire."
Island Flame is a great book and anyone who likes to read romance and suspense at the same time will love this book
Robard's "Sea Fire " is a continuation of this story.
