Pretty good. Nothing special. The last story by Miranda Jarrett was a bit tedious. The best part of it was the backstory of the beginning of Admiral Lord Nelson and Lady Emma Hamilton's affair. I liked Cornick and McPhee's stories the best. ...more

The Pirate's Kiss by Nicola Cornick (I enjoyed this particular story line because Daniel de Lancey was a well developed character.)

Susan needs more books, not really
The Pirate's Kiss, my first story by this author. Enjoyed most of it till something really stupid happened and it was just beyond me to suspend belief. Up till then was enjoying it.

A Smuggler's Tale, a new author to me, thought the start of the story was silly and beyond belief but it ended up being a sweet tale.

The Sailor's Bride, a new author to me, just couldn't get interested in the story and put it down about a third way through. Moved too slow with nothing happening.

Not impressed with the whole of the book. Another Christmas anthology of 3 stories in one book.
"The Pirate's Kiss"--1 star--I had problems with some of the scenes in this story. They were just plain ridiculous. Come on, how many people would actually even FANTASIZE having sex in a snowstorm, let alone actually do it? The other scene I had difficulty digesting earlier on was when Daniel went to the trouble of kidnapping Lucinda and brought her on board his ship. They sail out to sea, and soon aft

2011.

Para um romance histórico até que foi muito bom. Tenho certo receio de textos históricos, normalmente são enfadonhos, com descrições intermináveis e personagens coadjuvantes fúteis e patéticos. Mas para minha alegria e paz de espírito o enredo e o ritmo deste foram excelentes.

Devo dizer que o mocinho pirata, gato e misterioso, não é o que demonstrar ser, tá enganando a todos descaradamente. A mocinha não fica mui
