The hero's treatment of his wife was a total turn off. I didn't like this one at all.

Enjoyable to a point. I skimmed a bit (which I almost never do). I wasn't too keen on the pirates treatment of his wife. But, it was an interesting story.

This is the sequal to ISLAND FLAME.

The tempestuous saga of Lady Catherine Aldley and the pirate Jonathan Hale that began in Island Flame now continues in Sea Fire. . .

What can a beautiful captive say to a handsome, ruthless pirate?

He was her husband, her lover, the pirate who seized her body, then stole her heart. Lady Catherine Aldley fled England to make a home with the infamous Jonathan Hale in Carolina. But their perfect life was shattered when Cathy was summoned to England to her ailing father, and discovered that her marriage to Jonathan was a sham. He was a wanted man, one step from the gallows. The only way she could save him was to wed her despised cousin, to let Jonathan think she had betrayed their love.

Anything but "no."

With a price on his head and vengeance in his soul, Jon Hale led a mutiny aboard the prison ship Cristobel and recaptured his faithless wife. Cathy could rile his blood as no other. The fire in her eyes infuriated and beguiled him. Cathy said she hated him, yet melted at his touch even as Jon tried to despise what he most desired. Then fate threatened to part them forever and Jon risked his life to rescue the woman he could not live without. . . .

Bestselling, award-winning author Karen Robards once again brings us dazzling adventure and unforgettable characters in a searing saga of passion, seduction, and dangerous love.

Karen Robards is the author of twenty-two novels. She lives in Louisville, Kentucky, with her husband, their three sons, and a sizable menagerie.

From a Buccaneer's Bride to a Lord's Lady.
Lady Catherine Aldley's marriage to the virile pirate Jonathan Hale only intensified their all-consuming love. But their idyllic existence on Jon's Carolina plantation was shattered when Cthy was called back to England where her father lay ill. There, her scheming cousin, Lord Stanhope, revealed that her marriage had been a sham, and that only by becoming Lady Stanhope could Cathy save Jon from the gallows. Forced into marriage with the loathsome lord, she suddenly became the object of Jon's thwarted passion and jealous fury.

5/22/22: Decided to give this a second go as my tastes in reading have changed. While I can see what I reviewed previously I think they were both suffering from delusions of what love was supposed to be and couldn't see what was right in front of them. While I disagree with the methods both took to get what they wanted these actions were instilled on them when they were both too young to know better and those at fault were the ones who should have shown them the right way to handle anger, emotions, and consequences for their actions.

6/11/15: Found it just as abusive as the first one, at some points it was worse. In the end he got what he wanted and she consented to stay with him regardless of the fact that he abused he both mentally and physically. Typical battered wife syndrome.
