“Ever f*cked a pirate?”

He was insufferable, deeply scarred, and frustratingly gorgeous, and he was the man who was blackmailing her into tying the knot.

Cora Harris has never had luck with men. Being the daughter of a ruthless crime boss tended to put a dent in any relationship, but she never imagined she’d get kidnapped in the dead of night by pirates. She sure as hell nev

Airicka Phoenix is a new-to-me author and I'm so happy to have discovered her. This book was nothing short of amazing and I was captivated by James and Cora's story within its first pages. It was sensual, suspenseful and evocative. I never knew what was going to happen next and I enjoyed every moment of it.

James was a modern-day pirate. Really can't get sexier than that. After losing his entire family, he spent the last 15 years calling the open seas his home. He always

This is my first read from this author, and my first read with and about the inside of the Mafia. Thru all the book I keep forgetting that the action of the book was in our days. I kept going back in my mind like it was a historical romance.

When I read the blurb and I saw that the book it is about a pirate, I said:
"WooooW.... hell yeah I'm definitely in".😀

Although the book is about a pirate, most of the action happens on the land.

So...we have Cora, a daughter's mob mafia, the mos

Took me a bit to get into it, but once I was, I couldn't put it down. My third book by this author and I swear they only get better. Hot (and a lot of) sex, and great storyline with just the right amount of angst. Irresistible and possessive hero with a sweet and non-annoying heroine. And I LOVED the couple together. Literally. Not only could I not get enough of Captain James Crow, but I was obsessed with any scene of him and the heroine together.

A modern day pirate AND mafia business all in one book! That checked off so many yeses for me. And Airicka Phoenix did a bang up job with it and I LOVED it!

Captain James Crow has wanted revenge on Giovanni de Marco for years because de Marco was the person behind the death of his twin sister. So when supposed government officials approach him about him helping them to take him down he agrees. Captain Crow ends up kidnapping de Marco's daughter Cora but has second thoughts about turning her over

Holy fucking pirates! That was insanely hot! This book is addicting and oh so deliciously twisted. James Crow is one bad ass pirate, except for when it comes to Cora, who he has captured. Blood Script is full of drama, suspense and so much more. Once you start, there is no putting it down. Each turn of the page brings you something new and you can't help but get caught in the story line and falling for the characters. Cora is head strong and determined to save and protect her family at all cost, ...more

Pirate books are just fun. Let's start there. Yes, I am probably not supposed to be ok with men who kidnap their women, and hold them hostage...I do get this, but darn it, pirate books are fun.

And, I love them. because they are pirate books. And they are fun. Because pirates.

Then there was the blurb. And, I was hooked. And, who wouldn't be? That's a valid question.

This book did not disappoint, not even a little. She was a modern day tavern wench..

The heroine in this book was SO dumb.

I mean, my brain’s nothing to write home about and I’m pretty sure my common sense could use some work as well, but this character was something else entirely.

And it felt like it was done on purpose, which makes it all the more baffling.

And dramatic - dear God, everything about her was so dramatic.

And please keep in mind that I’m judging her based on other heroines in romance books so yeah.... the bar is really low for heroines to start with.

Yo Ho Ho!! BLOOD SCRIPT by Airicka Phoenix , a ravishing dark romance featuring a primally sexy pirate who imprisons, beds and weds his sworn enemy's sheltered daughter, was beyond epic!!!!!

I've never read anything by this author, and I WAS IMPRESSED. The writing was addictive, and I could not put it down, or focus on anything else.

I loved the action and the romance, but I wished there was more of an emotional connection between the two characters.

Apart from that, it was an enjoyable read.

Hold on tight! Blood Script will take you on the ride of your life. Jam packed with suspense, and a sexual chemistry so hot that it could burn you by reading, this is a fantastic read.

I seriously couldn't not get enough of this book. I found myself not wanting to put it down for anything. The book paints scenes that you'd swear was a movie playing in your head.

The journey of Blood Script is an unforgettable one that any romance lover should read. It's seriously addictive.

Modern day pirates???!! Wtaf???!!! When I heard about this story initially, I just KNEW it was historical. It's not Phoenix's genre of choice so I assumed she decided to dip her "literary toe" to test the waters. AND I'm just NOSEY enough to follow. Well FML! Phoenix pulled a whammy and literary kicked my booty! I couldn't be more whipped if I were whipped cream in hot chocolate!

So first BS is not historical. Captain James Crow is an uber sexy, super bold, 6'4 ft tall glass of yummy! Dude actual

I LOVE mafia romance with the sort of hardcore passion that is scary, so when I read the blurb for Airicka Phoenix's Blood Script and saw that it features one man's vengeance and a well-planned kidnapping of his enemy's daughter I was elated and excited to the point where it was scary! When this book hit my kindle I dived in, no holds barred and without reservation but I simply was NOT prepared for this incredible joyride!

James and Cora's story about love, overwhelming lust and revenge left me

When a books blurb asks the question 'Have you ever @&$#£€ a pirate?' then I'm instantly drawn to that book.

This is most definitely not about your swashbuckling, wooden legged, parrot on the shoulder type of pirates, this is a tale of the modern day variety and pretty damn hot ones at that. Especially Captain James Crow and his second in command, Nicholas.
This author is also one I have not had the fortune of coming across before.

Unfortunately it took me a little longer than I would have

Over the years we had been introduced to many gorgeous alpha males Christian Grey, Gidean Cross, Professor Gabriel Emerson. Every one of this alpha males had something that had you falling hard for them. In 2017 we're introduced to a 21st Century Pirate Captain James Crow.

He not only has the power to striped you from your being but will melt you heart. Revenge is the only thing has him breathing until he meets his siren Cora Harris, a woman that has the power to bring him to his knees.

I enjoyed every page of this book, I must admit I have a soft spot for pirates, who wants Prince Charming when you can have a Pirate 😍
I have read other works by this author and I have always enjoyed them, but this is particularly good! The sex is hot and there are some steamy wicked scenes and of course the unexpected turn is events. I definitely advise it if you’re looking for an easy steamy reading and a hot as hell wicked pirate.

There are few "go-to" authors that I don't even have to stop to read the blurb before just diving into the book. Airicka Phoenix is one of those authors. I know before the first page her books are going to draw me in and not let go, so I might as well get comfortable and plan on not sleeping. Blood Script was no different. Fresh, different, imaginative, and off-the-chain hot, are only a few words to describe this book. James Crow just sailed his way to one of the top rungs of my book boyfriend h ...more

I really struggled on what to score this book. The plot and lead male character were fantastic, but it was let down by a totally unbalanced heroine. Cora goes from being feisty and strong to a zombie “must have sex” lunatic in a single paragraph so often that it really grated on my nerves. She takes “Dickmatised” to a whole new level.

Whilst I really liked James, oddly enough my favourite character turned out to be Cora’s Mother…. Now there is a strong solid heroine!
5 Stars!

Airicka Phoenix! I love how you write both your protagonists! Their chemistry and dialogue is exactly what I look for in my books to feel completely engaged. Thank you for another outstanding read!

Even though at first I found it hard to connect with the book I soon found I was getting along better with it. I loved reading this book but I felt at times it just seemed to slow down to a halt for a while before picking back up again.

I liked the characters but at times felt detached from them in retro spec. I enjoyed reading about the characters none-the-less. It didn't put me off reading the book it was just something that niggled at me.

I'm going to be keeping my eye on this author for sure.

This starts as Revenge and ends with.......well you just have to read the book to find out.
Crow is so obsessed with getting revenge for his twin sister's murder and he will do anything to get it. Including breaking and destroying Cora.

I’ll give this a 3.5 mainly because I liked the plot but really I hate the Stockholm syndrome thing, many times I understand it, if the heroine has a little more spark in her (especially seeing as she was supposed to be a legacy of a crime family). But it kinda fell flat on that note for me. While she tried to justify her staying married to him it really just fell revolved on that she was horny, cock-whipped-head-over-heels in love with him (from the beginning).
