***original review posted at Romancing Rakes***

Danger, intrigue, betrayal, revenge, swashbuckling action and an unconventional love story between a pirate (okayyy, privateer if you want to get technical) and the daughter of a British admiral set against a Bruckheimer-esque background. You can almost hear faint strains of The Pirates of the Caribbean theme interspersed with the clangs of swordplay as the action and adventure escalates on the high seas. Shana Galen's got this formula down to a sci

Bumped down to 3.5 stars on reread. I cannot fathom that I was this smitten with this book the first time around.

Original review:

I can't stop grinning. This is one of those books that make you wish there were more stars - it is too good to be lumped with other five star books. It might be the best romance I've read this year!

One look at his too-handsome face, one word from his too-charming mouth, and she didn't know if she wanted to kiss him or kill him.

It's a stormy romance with the most amazi
I have a confession to make. I have a real weakness for pirate/naval romance. There's something about the wide open ocean, and those little itty bitty ships they used to sail to plunder and pillage (if you ever get the chance to tour a realistic modern copy, you realize just how minuscule they were, and how packing hundreds of people on board must have been interesting). And then pirates are always gorgeous and rough and scantily clad and full of derring-do, and naval officers are like pirates b ...more

After her fiance dies at (according to what she's been told) the hands of the barbarous Captain Cutlass, Raeven Russell wants revenge. But when she comes face to face with the infamous pirate, she not only finds it impossible to skewer the disarmingly handsome rogue, but also discovers that both adventure and passion await on board his ship. There's a bit of a snag though - she's the daughter of a British admiral, and her father's intent on seeing Cutlass hang.
Action abounds in this gripping ad

This is a really great pirate story, and most of the story really takes place at sea! If you're like me, you've noticed that a lot of historicals claim to be about pirates, and there's hardly a pirate or ship in sight. This is not like that at all, there's so much swashbuckling action, if you're into pirate tales, I highly recommend this book.

Bastien is a gentleman pirate, not your typical rough looking sea captain, and Raeven is no shrinking violet that he's abducted. She can hold her own just

Revenge is the name of the game for Raeven Russell. The daughter of a British admiral, almost her whole life has been at sea and she loves it but when the pirate Captain Cutless kills her fiance, she is out avenge his death. Raeven has heard tales of this 'privateer,' as he refers to himself, and feels like it is her job to teach the scoundrel a lesson. So she stuffs her long black hair into a cap, drags her friend with her to a bar where Cutless will be and challenges him to a duel, which she i ...more

This was a very good and exciting book to read. It grabbed me right from the start, kept me reading and now my house is still dirty, LMAO! Well at least I got all the laundry done while reading, hahahahaha.

If you like Pirate book's with high sea action this book is a must read. I really loved both the H&h in this book. The secondary characters were good also.

I like grown-up Bastien, less rebellious teen Raeven. Pirate refuses to fight her, either "child" dressed as a boy, or hair loosed as girl. She's thoughtless, gets others in trouble, even killed. Of course romance is sweet-hot main plot, her emerald eyes fall for his "cobalt eyes" p 150, with sides of fighting, deaths.

Despite Admiral's warnings, his young purser Percy Williams never admits he loves Raevan, and helps her escapades till the very last. Percy and Bastien say a man makes his own cho

This book captivated me right from the start. It hooked me from the first page and I didn’t couldn’t put it down until I read the last page. I am not sure my review will do this book justice. Let me give it a try, though.

Every little girl has her father wrapped around her little finger. They just look up at them with those love filled eyes and the fathers are helpless to resist. They will do anything they can for their little girls, no matter how old she gets because inside she will always be his little girl.

Raeven and her father are like that, he wants what he thinks is best for her. He makes the calls and disciplines in the hopes she will grow up and have the kind of life he could never give her. Even when it

I just love those "pirate kidnaps insolent/thieving young boy to teach him a lesson and have him work for him on his ship and when they have already set sail discovers the boy is indeed an alluring woman" stories! So I was looking very much forward to The Rogue Pirate's Bride. And I am happy to say it was wonderful!

The heroine Raeven was my favourite kind of heroine: feisty, stubborn, independent, the kind of girl who always lands herself in all kinds of trouble (which are of course very enterta

Review originally posted at Ramblings From This Chick

It's not often when a book can make me cry. To be honest, it usually never happens, but I admit to weeping like a baby on more than one occasion while reading The Rogue Pirate's Bride. Oh my, this book was so good. Full of action, suspense, mystery and some pretty steamy love scenes it had me turning the pages in an attempt to keep up with everything.

I'll admit, this book started off a bit slow for me. Not that the story was slow, it's just th

First off – I absolutely love pirates. Maybe it goes back to watching old Errol Flynn and Tyrone Power movies on television, the tight pants and high boots, the shirt open down to there and, of course, gazing raptly as they swung around on the ship’s rigging with the ease of a trapeze artist. So when I heard Shana Galen had a new book featuring a *swoon* pirate, I screamed – and then let RtB know I wanted that book. I mean, I really wanted that

Entertaining Lighter Pirate Fare with a Dashing French Privateer!

This is one of Galen’s Sons of Revolution romances, set in 1802, beginning in France but also with scenes in Gibraltar and onboard a sloop and British naval ship. It tells the story of Sebastien Harcourt, marquis de Valere (aka Captain Cutlass), a privateer sailing under letters of marque from Spain, and at the moment, seeking revenge on a Barbary pirate responsible for the death of his mentor. Long ago in the Revolution he lost hi

"Merde"! Our wonderful Shana Galen has done it again with another ripping romance that's sure to tickle your fancy plus some. The last of the Harcourt brothers has been found by a beautiful wild woman of the sea which leads us to a soul searing romance that will leave scorch marks instead of love bites.

Raeven Russell has a vendetta to act on and now only to find the man that shall see that Hell hath no fury like a woman's scorn or hurt for that matter. Raeven is a small delicate beauty to behold

Okay, so it features going down. That's about all it has going for it. Sure, I like Bastien, but Raeven's name is all kinds of distracting and just...ugh. Such an annoying name.

Honestly, it's light, fluffy, and oh yes features a pirate who is a nobleman and of course gets to be reunited with his mother and brothers at the end of the story. And of course he lands Raeven (THAT NAME).


I dunno. It was a thing. Galen strikes me as kind of hit or miss anyway.

Finishing this book left me feeling... odd. It's not a bad book---I enjoyed it---but for the first time in nearly 10 months, I wondered if The Great Historical Romance Bender is coming to a close. Perhaps it's just a sign I need to throw something non-historomance in the line up, but still, it's an odd feeling.

I like my historical romance, dammit.

DNF but giving it two stars because it was so good to start with. Here's where I lost interest: Raeven (the explanation of the extra E in her name was ridiculous) HATES Cutlass so much that she wants to KILL him. They see each other a few times and she decides that she no longer cares that he sunk her fiancee's ship, effectively killing him, because she's horny. And it doesn't happen slowly. At all. One minute she wants to kill Cutlass and the next she wants him in her pants. But that's okay, be ...more

My first ever read of the infamous Regency-type novels and I must say, it was a pleasant adventure!

I was warped into a decade I am only familiar with because of Mr. Sparrow's insatiable appetite for the misdeeds and my omnipresent ardor for such, and Galen has delivered a swashbuckling adventure on the high seas with words that really rocked the boat.

Our little heroine, Raeven, packs a punch to the idea of kick-assery in females with her every-present need to don the breeches and the sword but a

Adventure abounds. What's not to love about the charismatic, swashbuckling pirate Bastien and his plucky hellion Raeven. Raeven is no damsel in distress. She's hell-bent on killing Captain Cutlass for killing her fiancé. And Cutlass is intrigued by the clever "lad" that can handle a sword and pick locks. When he learns his Cabin girl is none other than the daughter of a British Admiral, he knows he has to give her up or face hanging. But that's just the beginning of their skirmishes.

Habis baca cepat tapi sudahnya 2 bintang saja. Kenapa?

Sebab banyak lompat-lompat baca.

Sebab bahagian menarik tentang kisah keluarga bersatu semula ditulis dengan tergesa-gesa pada penghujung cerita. Penulis sibuk tumpu pada adegan-adegan panas saja.

Sebab daripada 3 beradik itu, Julien saja yang semenggah sikit. Kembar 2 orang bikin saya berapi. Lebih-lebih lagi Sebastien ini. Nak rasa simpati sebab terpisah daripada keluarga pun tak jadi bila baca buku ini. Sekurang-kurangnya Armand ada sebab ya

I liked it. I especially liked that you could truly read it alone without having read the two before it. A lot of books claim that but only a few succeed. The story was interesting even though at the beginning she was redundant in her use of "pirate bastard".

Surprisingly good. I'm a sucker for pirates, but it turns out I'm an even bigger sucker for seafaring ladies who can wield a sword, do the work of a sailor, and plot sea battles. I'm looking forward to reading more from this author.

The drama in this third of the series was much more in line. One thing I must note, Shana Galen really knows how to write riveting action scenes that leave me forgetting to breathe. That was consistent with all three books.

I loved Raevan. She was quite intelligent and intuitive for her age. She was just the woman for the pirate Cutlass. Bastion was interesting also, though not as much as his twin but certainly capable of standing up to the caliber of Raevan. This story takes place almost exclus

Adventure on the high seas and in every page

She was out for revenge! Who would have thought once she crossed swords with him she would never get him out of her mind. Or her heart.
He was a famous pirate! Notorious even, so when a mere lad challenges him he is amused. Until he removes his cap and realizes the lad is the most beautiful woman he has ever seen. And she wants him dead! One kiss and he can't get her out of his blood! Read the book and become enthralled with every word

This was a very good end to the trilogy. The story was very interesting and exciting! I do have a love for books about pirates and their adventures. Especially when a woman comes into his life and somehow makes a place in his heart.

Raeven (I LOVED her name) was awesome. She had many skills with a sword and could do almost anything on a ship. I love able bodied females. To often, the female character is the damsel in distress or tries to help the male lead but just ends up getting in the way. Rae
