I wasn't crazy about the trilogy, but this was the best of all the books. These were my first Elizabeth Boyle books. She seems to write a lot about politics in France and that's just my thing. I'm a bigger fan of the 'English' books.

Maureen knew she had a chip to play when she got caught. Not only does she know who the infamous pirate is, but she's the only one who can identify him, her husband.

He thoguht she was dead. The love of his life, his wife, and now a pirate queen. Now that she's back he's going to not only keep his own head, but he's going to get his wife back to. No matter how much she hates him.

With a great story line, treason, and twists, this novel is a great adventure.

Really loved this book---stayed up late to finish. Married couple, separated by perceived betrayal, meet again. Julian is known as the privateer deReyes, an American. Maureen is Captain Hawthrone, smuggling alonng the English coast. After capture she volunteers to identify him to save her crew, ship and herself. Julian is stunned to find out she is still alive---he though she was dead for 8 years. Together they outwit the villian and find each other.

Definitely the best of the trilogy, IMO. I like how the characters from the other two books showed up and remained true to who they'd been, yet also had matured as well, as one might expect after the years that had passed.

Another great book in this series. Lots of action and intrigue and it was nice to see the lives of the previous characters continue on.
