I found this book through a recommendation on an Amazon Discussion for H uses h as revenge- and that is exactly what it was, but not the best book I have read on this theme. If you like "revenge" Risk Everything was much better.

2 1/2, maybe 3 stars. Very typical old style romance/ bodice ripper with no forced seduction or rape though. The story was sort of silly, but did get better. The hero, the pirate Lucifer, kidnaps the daughter of the man he believes had him tortured and sold into servitud

Suspense di cerita ini yang paling bikin aku gemas hampir sepanjang jalan cerita, walau aku patut memuji akting si heroine untuk mengelabui si hero agar tujuan balas dendam yang sudah direncanakannya gagal dicapai sesuai skenario. It's one hell of a read! especially the 'revelation' part near the end of the book which shocked not only the hero but also me!

Excellent. Loved the plot didn't want to sleep, got 4 hrs of rest and woke to finish it.
It was a nice, light read, and really liked it, but it was nothing special at the same time. The first half is the best part of the story and read it in no time, the second one took me longer because I kind of lost interest in the hero and heroine, but that interest returned eventually and I'm glad I finished it.

My only issues were the need for a good edition throughout the book, and the repetitive description of Lucian. I mean, I don't need a reminder every 20 lines or so of how big and powerf
I absolutely fell in love with this book. Donna Fletcher is an amazing story teller and i can wait to read more!

Never really cared for historicals but as I read the reviews on Amazon I was intrigued when readers said it was a 'Pirate Romance'. I've never ready anything of that genre before and decided to give it a try.

The revenge plot was what drew me at first and once I started I couldn't put it down.
Loved the characters and was pleasantly surprised as the story progressed.

This is the first book I've read by this author and I'm looking forward to reaing more of her work.

A unique take on the Virgin Ravished by a Pirate Tale. In this one the virgin plays at being a whore to turn off/hold off the pirate! Fabulous! She drives him crazy! Loved every moment.
This book was one of the best romance novels I've ever read. I laughed so hard at the heroine's antics and plots. This book is definately one I will read again and again.

Great romping story, yummy hero, worthy heroine. Really enjoyed this. The secondary characters were good and the villain was suitably villainous. Worth reading.
