You've got romance, piracy, lost princes, some disturbing elements(POOR LAZAR!!!) and basically an all around great book!
This book has some UNFORGETTABLE moments(the secret tunnel scene, the tower scene, Lazar and Allegra finally have sex scene-just to name a few)that had me so excited to keep reading.
Lazar....Oh, Lazar. My poor baby! If you want a tortured hero, Lazar is the man for you. The shit he has gone through is just crazy: Witness's his family being murdered, survivors guilt, slavery/rape, opium addiction,attempted suicide and believing he is cursed(he isn't. but you can't blame him for feeling that way). I mean, Give the guy a break. Yeah, Allegra! I'm looking at you.
Allegra was 'rich girl who cares about poor people and all that's right in the world' sort of person. She was always looking out for her country, trying to get Lazar to reclaim his throne, wanting the country to be democratic. At times I was like, Just be selfish, Allegra. Even though she often thinks of doing the selfish thing, she barely does anything for herself. TREAT. YO. SELF. ALLEGRA.
Anyway, Some really great parts to The Pirate Prince but I felt the ending was a little rushed. Otherwise, Great book and I will be reading the sequels. Colin O'Donoghue is basically Lazar(I Love Lazar so much it kills me) minus the chocolate brown eyes. But, hey! We all know he could pull off brown eyes if he put contacts in. Believe it.

Johanna Lindsey is my favourite author and for me, she can do no wrong-except perhaps, ''Until Forever'' cause that just pissed me off in the end. ANYWAY, Johanna writes the 9th Mallory/Anderson novel about Boyd, the youngest of the Anderson brothers and his tale of love and lust for Katey Tyler. As usual, Ms.Lindsey's characters are full of life and humor as well as romance-and unquenchable lust. :P
Boyd has never been my favourite Anderson brother so I kinda avoided this book like the plague for awhile but when I finally read/listened to it I really enjoyed it. 4 STARS!!...more
A good, quick read for fans of Innocent Heroines, Possessive Hero's and Evil Stepmothers! The storyline was good, but the heroine was to innocent for mA good, quick read for fans of Innocent Heroines, Possessive Hero's and Evil Stepmothers! The storyline was good, but the heroine was to innocent for me--I mean, you have lived in a Harem for most of your life--yes, a sheltered life but she is so very gulible. I wish she had more quick witted dialoge because it would have made me like her more. She did have very entertaining moments and I did liked her alot. I loved the hero Thorn, He is just hot and the cover has him JUST the way I want him! Thorn is a tourtured soul, he had fallen in love before with a supposedly Innocent woman, named Wilhelmina. He found she was a HUGE slut, who slept with everyone and was turned off of her. She is peeved with him and descides to get revenge by marrying his Father, who dosent know what type of woman she is. She comes to Thorn one night, naked, and trys to seduce him (he wants her out and away from him) when his father comes in a banishs him. Thorn is angry about this and leaves home for years. When he gets back devious plans are in motion and Thorn must stop them. Thorn learns what love really us from his 'little Dancer' Brittany. Brittany has loved Thorn from the start, and is put in torminal over her love for him and wondering does he love her. Great book! Wish it was longer....more
Some reviewers had a problem with Amy Malory, The heroine's, persistence. But frankly, I found it very refreshing! I don't think Warren Anderson, theSome reviewers had a problem with Amy Malory, The heroine's, persistence. But frankly, I found it very refreshing! I don't think Warren Anderson, the hero, would have ever found someone if they hadn't pushed him. Their story is sweet and romantic, with Warren trying to resist Amy. Amy has been in love with Warren since she first saw him. She makes no bones about it and tells him--''I want you, Warren Anderson'' She is bubbly, spirted and funny as well as beautiful. Warren is still his grumpy old self, the same since we saw him in 'Gentle Rogue' which was James Malory's and Georgiana Anderson's tale. We see James and 'George' again, and George is giving birth to their first child. Amy literally fights Warren to be WITH Warren. She uses very amusing tactics, which i mostly laugh out load at. Johanna Lindsey wrote a wonderful story of a resisting man, who has been hurt in the lowest way possible and the woman who could pick him back up again.
I'm really disappointed by this book. After wanting to read it for like 3 years it just I thought I'd like this more thanMe after reading Lady Vixen:
I'm really disappointed by this book. After wanting to read it for like 3 years it just I thought I'd like this more than I did.
I mean, it was recommended so many times that I believed it would be good but it really wasn't my cup of cup....
I'm all for a love/hate relationship but it's a 500 odd paged book and they basically fought til the bitter end. I became bored and had to force myself to finish it.
I mean it was good until you find out that Christopher had slept with Nick's mother before-obviously he was manipulated etc but still really put me off.
Christopher, though definitely brooding and totally alpha male spent most of his time hating Nick for her mother's actions. Honestly, he acted like a spoilt child. Another thing I didn't like is that he was obviously in love with Nick(and even though they weren't in any sort of steady relationship with him avoiding her all the time) but still went around sleeping with other woman and I absolutely HATE and I mean HATE when the hero/heroine sleeps with someone after they've been together. I mean, What's the point in that happening in a book where the main focus is the romance between the H/h? RIDDLE ME THAT, ROMANCE WRITERS?! Why? What's the point even? I avoid those sort of books like the plague and unfortunately there was no warning this time. It annoys the living hell out of me.
I think this was the First Romance Novel i ever read!I absoulutely adored it-- James Malory was/is the guy for me, he can do no wrong in my eyes, and iI think this was the First Romance Novel i ever read!I absoulutely adored it-- James Malory was/is the guy for me, he can do no wrong in my eyes, and i'll probably love him forever.This is by far my favourite Malory Novel. Georgina is the bomb, One of my favourite Heroines of all time. For me she had no weaknesses in character and she knew who she was-which i think is important in a character. I seriously wished this book was much longer and had its own series- where we could see their daily lives together- I think others would find that boring but i would love it! Beautiful story full of Romance, Action And Of course,comady. This Was the first Malory Novel i ever read- in fact-i think it was the first Johanna Lindsey book i had ever read. James made my day with his quirky comments and scarcastic humour. George's innocence and humor--Johanna Lindsey out did herself....more
