Sometimes you just feel like you need a really specific type of story to lose yourself in whilst entertaining you, but in a comforting and familiar way. You know, you want a treat, and fancy a twist, but nothing too scarily different, so you try milk chocolate instead of dark chocolate.

Well, I have that kind of thing for pirate/naval historical romances. I really love the mental image of the wild open seas (preferably in the Caribbean, because, let's face it, the weather's better, and it gives t

Well Written Saga of a Dysfunctional Pirate Family and the Brethren in the Caribbean

This one is action-packed and reflects considerable research--a gritty tale of a dysfunctional pirate family. And, yes, it held my interest.

Set in 1726, beginning in Puerto Plata, Hispaniola, this is the story of Marisol Castellan, independent and unafraid, who sneaks off her pirate father's ship to intercept a message meant for a rival pirate captain, hoping to locate her younger brother Monte. In the process, s

Marisol intercepts a message for another pirate Blade. She sees there is a meeting place for a ship carrying silver. In order to bargain her way to see if her lost brother is on that ship, Marisol has stolen a broache from Blade. He wants it back so he takes her with him. Actually she's forced. You know how it is.

She is taken by his dimples and his backside & her loves her body.

This one is full of adventure & it is near the end when you hear the secrets Marisol keeps about her home ship

Dear Ms. Bray-Weber,

I can honestly say I’ve never read a book like your pirate romance A Kiss on the Wind. Not only is it the only pirate romance I’ve read, it’s the only historical romance I’ve read where the heroine isn’t a virgin and no reason is given for that. I’ve read plenty of historical romances with non-virginal heroines but, in all of them, the authors have offered explanations for why their heroines are sexually experienced—she’s a widow, she was raped, she’s a seductress using sex t

Well, a wee bit let down after the first book. ><

Blake's story's far more simple and lack of.. I don't know, complications? I mean, sure there are few dramas in there, but the build up between Blake and Marisol is not as thorough as Zane's story that's why I don't really feel involved and engaged. I cried for Marisol especially after losing so many family members just in one book and I adore how Blake turn into such a different man when he met the one. Good story with enchanting plot, but

All Marisol wants is to find and rescue her missing brother Monte. Her father, the pirate captain Alain, believes he is dead. So does her other brother Luc. But Marisol knows Monte is alive. And now she believes he is on the merchant ship Gloria.

When Marisol learns that a messenger travels with word of the Gloria's location, she heads him off and gets ahold of the missive. Her escape throws her directly in the path of Captain Blade Tyburn, a pirate as well known for his mastery of women

Pirates! Lusty wenches! Pillaged silver! Oh, my!

A Kiss in the Wind, by Jennifer Bray-Weber, is a fine example of an enjoyable Hot Romance Novel. Marisol Castellan belongs to a sort of band of thieves, and after one auspicious theft, she runs into Blade Tyburn (now, if that name doesn't scream Hot Romance Novel Hero, what on earth would). Sparks fly. Tempers flare. Pulses race. Skirts are lifted. Shirts removed. Headboards rocked.

There is, however, a plot that keeps the passion rolling. Marisol a

First book I read about pirates, and I want more!

Marisol Castellan is looking for her brother Monte. Everyone says he's dead, but she doesn't believe it. So she intercept a message for another pirate, captain Blade Tyburn, to possible locate her brother's ship.

Pirate captain Blade Tyburn is not happy when his messenger is found dead, or when he discovers the beautiful lady he was protecting from other men is a thief. She stole one of his most precious treasures, and he expe

My thoughts: Pirates! Mystery! Swash-buckling adventure! What's not to like?
Jennifer Bray-Weber pulls us in to Marisol's world straight away, as we meet her struggling with someone in a back alley. Seconds later, a man is dead, and around her panic and horror of what she's done, Marisol knows she has to run away if she wants to escape more trouble. Unfortunately she almost literally runs in to Captain Blade Tyburn. Blade is on the trail of a ship carrying a lot of money, one he was supposed to b

It was a different take on pirates story. I stayed up till I had finshed it.
Thier are some love scenes, violence in the content. The story had some twists I did not expect.

I have one thing to say about Captain Blade Tyburn: YUMMY! Bedroom, emerald eyes, blond hair, sexy masculinity (VERY SEXY). Our unusually named Blade should make you want to dig into this novel, if nothing else does.

One of my most favorite things about this novel is of course the pirates! Ever since Johnny Depp played hottie (crazy too) Captain Jack Sparrow, I eat up any pirate romance novel I can get my hands on! Blade is no disappointment either in the hotness factor. He is definitely the icin

This was my first pirate novel and I enjoyed parts of it immensely. Particularly the heroine, with her reckless nature, her habitual thievery of weapons (for self defense, naturally) and the fact that she knew her way about a pirate ship and impressed the hardened Sea Dogs with her grit and tenacity.

What I didn't care for as much, was the hero. It was aggravating because some of his inner thoughts made him seem really sweet and appealing, then he'd go and think something that just made me want t

**Thanks to NetGalley & Carina Press for providing the ARC for review**

An interesting start where Marisol Castellan literally falls at the feel of Captain Blade Tyburn and from there the story starts.

Marisol is on a quest to search for her missing brother Monte and she's got the clue to his whereabouts when she intercepts a message meant for Blade. And she's stolen his cameo and Blade sets off to reclaim what is his and found themselves drawn to each other. Through the treachery and deceit,
There was so much that I liked about this book. For starters how about the fact that it is actually a book, it wasn‘t a story that I was just calling a book. There is well over three hundred pages, I might have actually thrown a hand pump in the air and done a little jig. It was amazingly refreshing to finally read something with substance again.

The plot was unique! Okay so maybe we’ve all read a pirate historical romance before but this read like Lynsay Sand’s pirate series which most of you r

Marisol a strong willed woman in the seventeen hundreds. Marisol joined her brothers in the pirate life.

Blade the captain of the Rissa, is a no nonsense man who expects very thing to be done his way or no way.

Marisol and Blade ended up being thrown together when riots strike Puerto Plata, Hispaniola. They struck up an unlikely friendship that leads them into falling in love with one another.
Their romance is rocky and full of strife. Which makes this book very interesting. The sex scenes are hot

This is the rare romance novel where I liked the heroine more than the hero. Marisol is a great heroine who remains true to her character development even when the romance develops with Blade. Blade is a little less developed with readers really only knowing how he became a pirate. Still this was enough for me to like both leads.

Their romance is a sexually appropriate for the characters and I liked how sexually self-determined Marisol is. The emotional intimacy isn't incredible but it was enoug

Full Review:

I was able to completely lose myself into the story line just as I would with a big screen movie and with the all the detail, that’s what it felt like. I truly felt as though I was watching a movie play before my eyes rather than just reading something, I was lost into this other world and taken away for a bit.

A Kiss in the Wind is truly a high energy book that I had a blast reading, can’t wait to read the next in series!

Really bad

This has to be the worst pirate book I have ever read! It is so poorly written it is hard to tell what is going on most of the time. I read on and on attempting to allow this author a chance at no avail. The characters are unlikable and just plain silly. There was no sensuality, romance, adventure....It was boring! From beginning to end I tried to discover the point of the story. Drama is all there unending angst that meads to nowhere. I wouldn't bother recomme

Loved this one! Exciting storyline! I don’t usually read pirate books or historical romances, but this one hooked me from the first page and I couldn’t put it down. Fell in love with the characters all the way down to the funny little pirate hand named Henry with his love of rum and bows in his beard. Great descriptions and action scenes. Blade Tyburn will forever have a special place in my heart. Looking forward to reading more by this author!

Fantastic pirate story! A delightful cast of reoccurring characters from her previous work, Blood and Treasure, make for a wonderful next chapter in Jennifer Bray-Weber's Romancing the Pirate series. Introduced in the first novel of this series, this is the story of Blade Tyburn. Well matched Marisol and Blade draw the reader in with their journey. This novel is full of sexual tension, personal angst, history and adventure. A page turner, be prepared to devote an afternoon to this book!

The way the book begins seemed very familiar to me. The hero, Blade, was sexy, strong and cunning. I admired the heroine's ability to protect herself and use her weapons. Her sense of adventure and courage were so strong that they were almost to the point of stupidity. The author included many flowery description of sex scenes that bothered me a bit.

All the elements for a good book were there for me, but for some reason I couldn't get into the book as much as I wanted to.
