Opinião completa em http://pepitamagica.blogspot.pt/2015/...

Eu tenho uma coisa por piratas e capitães que se fazem passar por piratas – mas que têm honra acima de tudo. E é sobre isto que este livro trata: honra, vingança e amor.

que não foi boa ideia.

Devido à guerra, o navio onde Alice seguia, em vez de levar hasteada a bandeira inglesa, levava a bandeira espanhola – o que por si só era crime, mas protegeria o navio se houvesse franceses a pensar em atacar o navio. Mas são apanhados não po

Pretty good book. I enjoyed Alice's way of standing up to Michael. She did a good job of negotiating the ransom demand. I think Michael didn't quite know what hit him. She also showed an amazing ability to think on her feet when she faced down the men on the Royal Navy ship to prevent him from being whipped. I also liked her escape from Sandford's house and her appearance back on Michael's ship. Meanwhile, he was dealing with his tunnel vision regarding his revenge. When he finally got it, he di ...more

The last time I read a Harlequin was in my early teens, and I have never read a Regency romance. I wasn't sure if I would enjoy it or not. I'm happy to say that I absolutely loved Captured for the Captain's Pleasure!

This book captured my attention from the start. There was action, interesting characters, and I felt like I was back in time with them.

I liked how the main characters, Michael and Alice, were not perfect. They both had their own secrets and issues with some of their family. It made

Vou ser sincera (como sempre, aliás), peguei esse livro achando que a história seria fraquinha; primeiro por não conhecer a autora, e segundo porque a sinopse não me cativou. Mas, ainda bem que as minhas expectativas foram frustradas.

Logo no principio eu já me deixei cativar pela mocinha, que sabe que não é uma beldade e lida bem com isso, pois o seu lado prático não a deixa sucumbir a bobeiras, tal como ter o navio atacado por corsário e ser feita prisioneira pelo capitão.

Ao ter o navio abalroa

Revenge story that mostly takes place on board a ship back in the 1800s. Hero is a privateer who captures the heroine's father's ship, with the heroine, her brother, and a girlfriend of hers aboard. He wants revenge on her dad because he thinks he caused the death of his family. The heroine has handed him the perfect means to get it. There's a lot of bargaining and negotiations and revelations. I enjoyed it.

As usual Ann Lethbridge, is known for her historic romances.
Really loved the book..... :)
Micheal and Alice learn to love, trust, and protect each other -
(sometimes from their own decisions)
Both, Alice's courage and Micheal's protection for Alice are dominant throughout the book,
eventhough Alice's mind screams "No, he is the captor", and Micheal's,
"Remeber, this is payback time", both trust their hearts - to love -
which is far more superior to hate and revenge.

uma trama mais ou menos simples, sem nada de inovador.
os personagens enfrentam alguns fantasmas do passado o que lhe condiciona toda a vida no sentido de obter justiça senão vingança.

Alice tem uma personalidade forte, não se deixando minimizar sem lutar por aquilo que quer muito.... o amor de Michael!
Este por sua vez com um forte sentimento de culpa e com alguma dificuldade de assumir os seus sentimentos por Alice.

No fim, com todos os segredos desvendados e sentimentos assumidos, nada melhor q

I'm a sucker for Harlequinn Historicals and when I found out they offered an ebook subscription I jumped at the chance. Sometimes you think that eventually you'll be able to picture how the story will end and sometimes it just surpises you.

I loved this story! I even cried a little during the end. Why people can be so helpless and stubborn when in love.......it's a really good story.

Tralasciando qualche cliché classico del genere piratesco e una nota stonata che mi ha fatto venire i brividi stile unghie sulla lavagna, per il resto è stata una lettura piacevole! Peccato che l'autrice non abbia scritto un libro dedicato a Jaimie, un personaggio che mi ha incuriosito molto! =(

Iniziato sotto forma di ebook e proseguito sotto forma cartacea...

I corsari dei romance si assomigliano un po' tra loro, ma io lo stesso un debole per navi, battaglie e assalti ai nemici con in mezzo qualche romantica storia d'amore...

Surprisingly good.Tortured hero who doesn't think he deserves happiness. Strong heroine who thinks she isn't attractive enough 2b loved for herself but is willing to trust the hero. This time I liked the heroine better

Very emotionally moving. Ann Lethbridge did a superb job with the plot. Even better is that the man was a pirate!
