The year: 1710

The setting: pirate ship, somewhere in the Caribbean

Nathaniel Bainbridge is traveling by ship with his pregnant sister to meet their scheming father in the New World, an island near modern-day Bahamas called Primrose Isle. But before the ship can reach its destination, it's attacked by the The Damned Manta, a pirate ship ruled by the infamous Captain Hawk, who just struck bloody gold.

Hawk has a bone to pick with Nathaniel's father, and taking Nathaniel prisoner is the perfect pl

Holy crap, Keira Andrews reached into my brain and wrote the pirate story I didn't even know I needed.

I'm a huge Keira Andrews fan, and she didn't disappoint with this one. It has EVERYTHING! It just tick, tick, ticked all my boxes. Enemies-to-lovers, a VIRGIN, an age gap, a learning disability, a historical setting- it was just totally my taste. Gah, I could NOT put it down!

Honestly, I wanted to read this book for the buzz, but I was nervous about the pirate aspect. I haven't read a pirate bo

You know when you're reading a book and the sex scenes start to bore you? But you think,ok the plot will keep your interest....

Well,it didn't and don't get the pitchforks out because just about everyone has loved this...

I've been reading this for days and definitely reached the point where I really wasn't interested in what was going to happen.

I actually adored Nathaniel.He was so damn cute and responsive,and eager,and sexy with a kind of innocence that definitely work
4.5 HEARTS--

To love could only be madness. 

Pirates. Give me a pirate romance any day.

I feel like 2017 is one for pirate romance spoiling, well for me, that's for sure. So many good MM pirate romances are out there! Keira Andrews' Kidnapped by the Pirate definitely can join the ranks of an entertaining and swoon-worthy tale. (I'm a bit of a pirate connoisseur if you couldn't tell.)

This book has a lot of buzz qualities. The hype is backed by the quality of this novel. If you'
“I’ve determined that three-quarters of piracy boils down to theater.”

Kidnapped by the Pirate has so much deliciousness:

~~ Age gap
~~ Virgin -- determined to experience it all
~~ Pirate -- our swashbuckling anti-hero
~~ Adventure
~~ Angst
~~ Kindle-melting smexy-times
~~ An awesome little Princess Bride homage
~~ Well fought happy ending

Oh, yes, we have it all here, on the high seas!

This was surely one of the most anticipated publishings of the year. I have always loved Keira’s work and her magic way with words. I mean what could be better than this? A virgin who’s kidnapped by a notorious pirate and these two madly falling in love with each other? This is soooooo my cuppa! 😁

Nathaniel is just 18 and he’s a virgin. Now he’s on the journey to Primrose isle with his pregnant sister where their father is ruling as a governor. On their way there, their ship was plundered by the

Update 7/27/19

Audio – 5 stars
Story – 3 stars

The audio definitely made a difference. Cornell Collins’ performance added some oomph the story, so I was able to finish and mostly enjoy it this time around.

I realize now why I couldn't finish the first time. When I see the words Kidnapped and Pirate in the title of a book, I think action packed, gritty, violence and high angst. It’s not until almost the end of the story that I got what I was expecting to get throughout the story.

Rating for the story is still the same.

Cornell Collins was just a tad bit too extra in this one for my taste. Captian Hawke sounded like an old man smoker (not a fan).

This book is a britches ripper of the highest calibre, packed with everything you'd expect to find in this genre - devilish pirates who are too sexy to be resisted, an innocent young scamp just waiting to lure our anti-hero down the path of emotional reawakening, daring adventures and over the top villains and a setting which is perfectly researched.

I'm not going to lie, the Golden Age of piracy fascinates me, as the British Empire extended her reach across the Caribbean and used privateers to p
*** 4.75 Stars ***

Keira Andrews has written a book about virgins and pirates with a sexy side of age gap?! This is everything I ever wanted from the M/M romance genre. Everything.

*rolls around in the trope-y goodness*

I withheld a measly 1/4 star because the book didn't make me cry (you pretty much have to make me sob like a baby to get 5 stars from me). Other than that, this book was bodice-ripper perfection.

4 Stars

There’s not much I can add to the host of reviews singing this book’s praises.

I mainly enjoyed this because…
1) It sentimentally brought me back to those days I devoured MF historical romance and now, made all the better with the MM setting
2) The smex was smexy with a bit of dirty thrown in
3) This consistently brought the feels, with good dashes of action and suspense one would expect from a pirate book

If you’re a fan of this author, I doubt you’ll be disappointed.

It's release day for my new pirate romance! I loved writing this book. I wanted to hit all the classic tropes: alpha pirate, virgin captive, age difference, and hate to love. Of course there's also swashbuckling and a happily ever after! I hope you’ll enjoy it. <3

My swash has been buckled and my timbers are still shivering! Oh, to be a pirate in this fun, sexy and exciting romp through the Caribbean. Just a little reminiscent of an old-fashioned, Harlequin-type romance, Keira Andrews has reworked a classic trope into MM perfection, adding a yummy May/December element, a favorite of mine! Young, virginal, sheltered Nathaniel becomes the captive of Hawk, a villainous pirate captain bent on revenge, and inevitably, they succumb to lust and love. That’s pret ...more

Kidnapped by the Pirate by Keira Andrews is awesome! KA is an author that always delivers. Her ability to go from zombies to contemporary, to sports, to historical is impressive!

If you love:

I remember one of the first MM Romance books I read was Semper Fi by this author. And it was good. I found myself heavily invested in the characters as they went through every experience, from a battle laden scene to a simple meal sharing scene. All of it had me banking on the characters to give me satisfaction.


Kidnapped by the Pirate wasn’t that way at first. Sounding like a pantomime Mills and Boone-esque gag, I decided to read it because I thought it would be campy, unbelievable and rid

Nathanial Bainbridge thinks his life is over when he gets kidnapped by pirates but in fact his life is just beginning.
Nathaniel is eighteen years old and for most of those years he’s been a disappointment to his father. Learning difficulties have resulted in reading being nearly impossible for him, he’d much rather be running and climbing outside but that’s not the son his father wants.
His father is a horrible nasty excuse for a man and the new governor of the Primrose Isle. His father has been

Anyway...2★'s = it was ok, ok? And it was ok. I even liked parts of it. But, part of me thinks I read a totally different book than my friends and the bloggers. Truly.

I've been reading this genre for long enough that I know what I like and what I don't. I can honestly tell you that historical is not my thing. Neither are pirates. I'm more of a contemporary romance kind of girl. But when one of your favorite authors writes a historical pirate romance, you put aside your biases and you dive in head first.

My honest opinion, this book is perfection. I fell head over heels in love with Plum and Hawk. Nathaniel is just the sweetest. I loved watching him come in to

Avast ye, me hearties! This swashbuckling pirate romance definitely shivered me timbers in all sorts of delicious ways.

Set in 1710, this tasty bodice-ripper follows Nathaniel Bainbridge as he is kidnapped on route to the new colony of Primrose Isle, by an infamous pirate by the name of Captain Hawk, who has his heart set on seeking revenge against Nathaniel’s despicable father over a decade old unforgivable injustice.

Nathaniel is all things sweet and pure. He has spent his youth feelin
Take one of the most classic romantic tropes, throw in a virginal youngster, a notorious, rugged pirate and let them implode when they spend a month together in the captain's cabin.

Sigh. Can you get any more romantic?

at 18 a man in his own right in 1701, he blew me away with his courage, his willingness to give his all and never give up, his perseverance at coaxing smiles out of Hawk and peel away all the layers to find the real man behind the pirate, no matter what Hawk throws at him

There’s just something about pirates that make me want to sail away on the open seas with my very own badass, sword swinging side piece. I’ll just have to settle for being a fly on the wall as Captain Hawk and Nathaniel come together and then come together.

Please check out the blurb because it does a great job explaining the premise of the story in detail about Captain Hawk, the score he wants the settle, and how it relates to Nathaniel.

Happy reads yield happy Wynne. And Happy Wynne yields... universal happiness (?) lol

This is a book I didn't know I needed.

Stumbled upon this one by chance cause of the cover, and then decided to read it on a whim, and ended up loving it more than I expected.

Solid writing and solid plotting. Though it's a lil (just a tad bit) weak at the end – would have loved a more gut wrenching and climatic action scene, but I can't complain much.

This book was such a fun read, and I enjoyed
Well, that was really entertaining and it reminded me of the fun times I had while watching “Angélique, marquise des Anges” or “Fanfan la Tulipe”, but with pirates and two hot guys as the main MCs.

On his way to the New World, Nathaniel, 18 year-old, having a reading disability but caring and witty, is being kidnapped by a famous Pirate, the Sea Hawk, to be used as a ransom and a mean to get revenge. You see, Hawk was falsely accused by Nathaniel’s father a long time ago and had to become a pirat
Having read all those "bodice rippers" back in the day, I couldn't wait to read Keira Andrews' take on the traditional pirate and damsel in distress. I absolutely adore how this "breech ripper" twists the familiar trope and Kidnapped by the Pirate is a great read!

It's the year 1710 and virginal Nathaniel and his pregnant sister Susanna are traveling to the fledgling English outpost on Primrose Isle, where their father is the Governor. They are set upon by a pirate ship, led by the Sea Hawk who i

The book was alright. Quite predictable and there was also the fact that the book reminded me of another book. However, I don't remember that one. The story centers around Nathaniel ‘Plum’ Bainbridge (18) and legendary villain of the New World Captain (view spoiler) aka Sea Hawk (41). Nathaniel gets kidnapped by Hawk, who has a strong need for revenge on Nathaniel's dad. But Hawk didn't expect Nathaniel to be so brave and stro

So who likes booty? Pirates. And me.

It starts with the famous pirate Hawk raiding Nathaniel's boat. Why? Because he was looking for booty. (Booty of the gold and gem kind.) As he comes across Nathaniel and his sister, Hawk realizes that he could kidnap him and hold him for ransom. His plan takes place and Hawk and his men take Nathaniel with them when they leave.

At first Hawk only plans to use him as a source of money but quickly he becomes enamored by his young captive. The sexual che

She writes contemporary, historical, paranormal and fantasy fiction, and—although she loves delicious angst along the way—Keira firmly believes in happy endings.
