His Pirate Seductress- Love on the High Seas by Tamara Hughes is a 2015 Entangled (Scandalous) publication. I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Pirates seemed to fade out of view for a long while, what with every single historical romance novel set in the regency period, and focused exclusively on manners, dukes, earls, and society rules. However, I have noticed a small trend emerging where pirates are once more prominently featured

Pirates are awesome!! I love pirates, so the fact that the title of this book suggests a female pirate? HOT DARN! I couldn’t resist myself from requesting this book and I am so so glad that it absolutely delivered on all my expectations!

Catherine is a woman on a mission – to steal the priceless treasure but not because she wants it for herself, but because she need it to save her family. Now if only the pesky attract

A rambunctious adventure which takes place on both land and sea....

“Be quiet, or I'll run you through with my sword."
"I'd much rather run you through with mine," he suggested, his voice a sexy rumble that made her shiver.”

HIS PIRATE SEDUCTRESS by Tamara Hughes was a rambunctious adventure which took place on both land and sea. I'm a sucker for a good pirate story. When I saw pirate in the title and the pirate ship flying the Jolly Roger flag on the cover, I knew I wanted to read this book! Thi

Good story. The plot was very engaging and different and I really liked that. Catherine was a really good character, and I loved her strength and dedication to her family. Thomas himself was a good hero. Though his own desires initially were selfish, but he did not hesitate to help Catherine secure her son's freedom at the cost of his own desires. He was charming and roguish, caring and protective a perfect man for Catherine. The chemistry between them was more sensual and sweet, instead of the ...more

I've always admired Hughes writing skills and this book was also really good. This book has lot of action, thrill and adventure in addition to a female pirate and a handsome Captain. It is quite good historical fiction. I enjoyed reading it.

I received a copy of this book, from the publisher, in exchange for an honest review. In no way did this sway either my review or my rating.

Even with my love of Historical Romances, I never thought that I'd be one for the swashbuckling and danger on the high seas. I really didn't think pirates would be my thing. Okay, sure. I admit that I may have had a fantasy or two about a certain captain with an affinity to rum and a very bird-like name but co

Catherine Fry would stop at nothing to free her son and mother. Their captor demanded the Ruby Cross of the Knights Templar as the price of their freedom. Unfortunately, that artifact is in the hands of Captain Thomas Glanville, who plans on selling it for a pretty penny. Her family comes first, Catherine is determined to get the Cross any way she can-even if she has to become a pirate to get it.

Captain Thomas Glanville can't believe that he and his crew have been taken hostage by a group lead
Leone (She Reads too Much Romance)
I think that the author was certainly on the right track when she penned this story in general. The idea of a female pirate was not only highly clever, but I have been loving the stronger heroines that are making their debut in historical-romances. I think my main for my love of such heroines is for the simple fact that I find much more relatable to the modern woman so I will to say that Hughes deserves applause for such creativity.

The one thing that this story lacked in my opinion was a lusty

This is book 3 in the Love on the High Seas series.

Trying to save the life of her son and mother, Catherine Fry has captained her late husband's ship and gone after the owner of the Ruby Cross. She and her band of pirates soon capture Thomas Glanville's ship, but he is not telling her where the cross is.

Thomas can't believe that he allowed himself to be captured. He is not about to let the Ruby Cross out of his hands, not when it is his means to purchase his own ship. But being held captive by a

I was pleasantly surprised by Tamara Hughes writing and style. She has a way to draw you into the story and capture your attention and not let go until the very last page. I really felt like I was lost in this book while I read it and did not feel that it was historical too much at all. I felt like it could be modern day as well. There was tons of action and adventure that kept you on the edge of your seat and a great heroine that could hold her own with the men, all while keeping her son and mo ...more

I do not get to read as many as I would like novels set back in time, but when I do they must be full of adventure. This one was more than I asked for. To my special delight one of the pirates is a woman whom is full of adventure and daring, very much the Captain of her ship. This author pulls no punches in how she starts this out full of a fight going after a treasure. Catherine does know how to fight and she does not sit back either. Thomas does not give up without a fight even when he realize ...more

Love on the high seas has never seen this much action. Tamara Hughes is a true artist and that can easily be seen with her written work. The charaters she writes are head strong and fiery and make for a perfect read.

Catherine Fry will stop at nothing to make sure that her son and mother are safe. Even if it means joining a band of pirates in order to steal a cross that will bring back her son. So its no suprise that being a pirate isn't
His Pirate Seductress is a very fun story to read. Catherine has taken over her husband's ship now that he's gone and is searching for a cross that will save her family. She knows who has it and will do almost anything to get it back.

Thomas is surprised when his ship is taken over by pirates and he's defeated. But what surprises him more is that he's taken down by a woman. Her form of torture isn't anything like he's seen before, but she's just not strong enough to cause him harm.

The more I read from Tamara Hughes I find that I am not only impressed by what a good writer she is but what a great storyteller as well. His Pirate Seductress, the third book in her Love on the High Seas series, was a stirring romantic adventure! With a heroine resorting to piracy to save her son and mother, and a hero blinded by ambition, the stakes were high in this work. Full of sexual tension and characters that were able to see into each other's inner selves, this was a marvelous tale that ...more

This is a very sensual book, which I didn't quite expect with a pirate and kidnapping story. I found the chemistry between Catherine and Thomas to light up the pages. Her attempts to torture Thomas were almost amusing because of how bad she was at it.
Things take a turn while on the ship and Catherine has to make new alliances. I found this plot point to be very interesting. The quest for the gold cross and saving her son and mother was equally interesting.
This was a very good book. Lots of act

First let me tell I love a good pirate read!

Catherine Fry becomes a pirate to save his son's life. She needs to locate and steal the priceless Ruby Cross of the Knights Templar.

Her plan is, after capturing Captain Thomas Glanville's ship, to force him to tell her the exact location.But the Captain has other plans for the cross and for Catherine.

The book is well written but I wish it had a little more romance. All in all it was an interesting read!

Great story depicting the depths a woman will go to protect her child. Catherine and Thomas connect in an unusual circumstance but the connection is undeniable. The story is full of action and the writing does it justice. Reading it felt like an adventure.

"His Pirate Seductress" by Tamara Hughes - ***
I love a cheeky sea captain and a brash female pirate but for some reason "His Pirate Seductress" did not "spark" me. I honestly do not know why because all of the elements were there: handsome and saucy gentleman sea captain - check. Formidable and audacious female pirate determined to get her prize - check. Saucy and undeniable sexual attraction - check. And danger and deceit - double check. But the heroine wasn't as confident as I wanted her to be

Tamara Hughes has written another gem! I thoroughly enjoyed reading this entertaining book. Catherine, a female pirate and mother, is one of the strongest female leads I've had the recent pleasure getting to know. Undaunted in moving towards her goal, her strength and courage had me cheering her on many times throughout the book. I thought she flat out rocked!
Thomas, a nothing stands in my way kind of man, is the perfect match for Catherine. As their relationship grows, both need to

Pirate stories can be hit or miss for me and this one was a miss. I didn't like the writing style, not that it is badly written, but the "voice" of the story didn't attract me. It had a bit of an old style feeling. For more romance reviews, check out my website:
