"But you're right about one thing." He leaned his arm against wall by her head. His lips barely moved as he spoke, but his eyes gleamed with a blatant assurance. "I want you in my bed all the time. I'm not going to force you. I don't have to. our flesh almost sizzles when we stand close, and one night soon you'll come to me and offer your

"A Pirate's Wife for Me" is the story of Caitlin and Taran.

In this concluding series read, we see lost estranged lovers reuniting in a mission to reclaim thrones and avenge loved ones.

The book was HOT. The hero and heroine are both passionate and strong, and their chemistry is sizzling. He's a prince masquerading as a pirate, she's a lock picker who is also a spy. Both have different agendas but have to work together to fulfill their respective goals.

Then why isn't it a 5 star read?

I want to do a little happy dance. That was a great ending. The story was long complicated and fun with a very satisfying ending which is rare.

4 stars - slightly spoilerish

I loved most of this book. A few things bothered me but by the end I was very glad I read it.

Cate was definitely the shining star of this book. She is tough, smart, loyal a day times incredibly funny. Some of her inner dialogue had me laughing so hard I was in tears.

Taran was not quite the knight in shining armor I had hoped he would be. I agree with another reviewer who said he was a jerk to Cate when they were younger and the fact that he wasn't faithful really b

Fantastic read! Excellent addition to the Governess brides series, after another of my favorites in that series "Lost in Your Arms". I adore historical romance, this is an fun adventure, with a lovely pirate hero and plucky, yes really, heroine. Lots of swashbuckling adventure. Loved that the heroine was just as strong as the hero. She even gets to beat up a bad guy! Or two!!

Another hit by Christina Dodd. An engaging story, with suspense, action, and hot steamy love scenes. A prince looking for revenge and fighting to get his country back. A heartbroken lady with a thirst to avenge her brother's death. Together they will fight common enemies, learn to trust each other, and find true love.

Aku menyukai buku ini. Christina Dodd adalah salah satu penulis roman yang terbaik dan memutuskan akan mengoleksi buku Christina Dodd lainnya.
Caitlin Maclean gadis pintar, tangguh dan lucu. Caitlin Maclean memiliki tinggi 182cm dan keahlian pencungkil kunci diutus oleh Throckmorton menjadi mata2 untuk menyelesaikan misi di Cenorina. Disaat menginjak di pub Poole, dia terkejut berjumpa Taran karena selama 9 tahun Caitlin berusaha menghindari Taran karena Taran pernah menghancurkan hatinya, tanpa

I always enjoy a book by Christina Dodd. She writes smart, funny characters and her female heroines are never shrinking violets. I liked that Caitlin and Taran had a long history you slowly discover throughout the book instead of the instant love of many romance novels. The cast of supporting characters are also interesting and I hope at least one, Jeannette, gets her own story soon. I liked her immediately.

I cut my reading teeth on historical romances. My absolute favorite was the late Kathleen Woodiwiss. This book reminded me a little of her books.
Cate has been raised to be a Scottish lady. How did she end up a pickpocket spy? Taran is pirate bent on revenge. How do they succeed I their quest and fight the storm brewing to bring them together. I enjoyed this book.

I'm biased, because Christina Dodd is a friend. That being said, I loved her books long before I knew her. This one is a new fave. It's punchy and fun, just like the title. If you're in the mood for a riot of a pirate romance, one you will enjoy without taking too seriously, this is your kind of book.

I enjoyed this adventurous tale. It's kind of a throwback to "old school" romance, a bit predictable, but so much fun! There were a couple of grammatical and continuity errors, but they weren't bad enough to drive me crazy or distract me from the story.

Mixed feelings.
It was ok, but not like I had come to expect of a miss Dodd-romance. The tension between the h/h wasn't that great, I didn't like the flashbacks and the ending was just plain silly.
I rounded up from 2,5.

Loved It!

Twists, turns, and outrageous plot devices, all made delightful fully probable and tied up with a bright happily ever after bow. Dodd never disappoints.

fast paced action adventure read. liked the strong heroine but her physically violent tendencies were at odds with her hesitancy to kill, even when seemed to be best choice.

Oh how I do so love a great pirate adventure, but this was so much more. Cait and Taran had known each other for years. He was her first everything. There were so many twist and turns.

Not my favorite but ok.

I had a hard time liking the two main characters they didn't to mesh well I did love the secondary characters. I love Ms. Dodd's books and will always read.

Akhirnya kebaca juga novel terakhir dari serial governess brides. Jika tidak sama prequelnya maka ini adalah seri ke sepuluh. Sebenarnya, gak ada yang baru dari Christina Dodd di buku ini, malah kayak baca Julie Garwood rasa2nya. Intinya sih menceritakan petualangan Taran Tamson sama Caitlin Maclean (yeah dia Scottish rambut merah dan mata hijau seperti heroine di sejuta novel lain), mereka ini punya masa lalu dimana setelah berhasil merayu Caitlin, si Taran langsung kabur meninggalkan dia denga ...more

A great addition to a wonderful series. It had a little bit different feel than the other books in the series, but I enjoyed it nevertheless.
I had wanted to read all of the Governess Brides books ever since I read My Favorite Bride. And now I have. I will definitely return to reread the favorites.

I really wish this volume was right after volume 6, because I pretty much forgot a lot of details from volume 6 by the time I got to volume 11...especially the connection between them :)))....until the end, when suddenly a flashback came to visit😂😂😂

DNF at 32%. First Christina Dodd book I've ever not finished. Just couldn't get into the story or the characters. Didn't feel any connection, intrigue, or excitement. All narrative and backstory, so much telling instead of her trademark action and emotional ties to the characters. Just couldn't slog through. Such a bummer.
I do like the series on the governess academy (and yes I know I didn't get the whole name in);but, this book felt a little more rushed than the others in the series. It is still a good journey but not my favorite.

Tough to get going and not a big fan of flashbacks to tell the story but I enjoyed, particularly the strong heroine!
Feb 20, 2015 rated it it was ok
Did not finish. Despite my best efforts at suspension of disbelief, this story was too ridiculous to bear. Plus the hero is a butt-head, and the heroine isn't especially likeable.
