I see the negative reviews but read for yourself. This book was great. I have loved this entire series. Women pirates it was awesome with their trials and love. Fern Micheals book has never disappointed me.

Skim read only.

Heroine Wren decides she loves a total creep. She goes out of her way to meet with him and engages in compromising situations with him. He is also sleeping with her alleged best friend, who is ( in name only) a puritan. After about 100 pages of this, she goes to meet him secretly But he rapes her violently and then loses her in a card game to a group of rough sea men who then gang rape her. Description of these events is almost prosaic and suggests that it's nothing much to w...more

"Caleb is an ass-hat throughout the entire book. At one point Michaels decides he might actually need to have a feeling other than gas, so she has him reflect on what he’s looking for in a lady:

“Somewhere, someplace, someday, he would find a woman full of wonder and excitement, a woman who would love him the way he would love her. They would make love the first time to his satisfaction and the second time to the satisfaction of both; each time they would b...more
Bad pacing, lots of 'telling not showing' and no good sex scenes. A few 'read aloud to whoever will listen' sentences.

I was so excited when I found this, I wanted to continue the saga of this family. (Still young and dumb.)

So after reading this review, I've decided that I pretty much have to read this book - even if just for the WTFactor.

Fern Michaels isn’t a person. I’m not sure she’s an entity either since an entity is something with separate existence. Fern Michaels® is what I DO. Me, Mary Ruth Kuczkir. Growing up in Hastings, Pennsylvania, I was called Ruth. I became Mary when I entered the business world where first names were the order of the day. To this day, family and friends call me Dink, a name my father gave me when I...more
