My Opinion:

I thought this was an OK book. I was not dragged into this or even compelled to like Eva. I didn't feel anything for her. I was never invested. I also felt this book dragged on so much. In fact at some points I was down right bored. The love scenes were rushed and almost looked over, an afterthought by the author. I didn't care for this style. I want a romance scene to drag me in and make me feel like I am there with them. I never got there with this book. In fact it seemed like every

I really enjoyed reading 'Redeeming the Pirate' and made a welcome change from the usual Historical Romance books that i generally read. I cannot remember the last time that I read a book where pirates, action and adventure are concerned. I am not going to write what the story is about, as i do prefer one to read for themselves, but i do highly recommend. It is the first time that i have read a book by Chloe Flowers and i'm sure it will not be the last.

My thanks to Netgalley and the Publishers.

A prediction, a pirate turned privateer and a novitiate nun with secrets make for an exciting, humorous, amorous and delightful read. It's revolved around the battle of New Orleans.

Drago was once a pirate and now works for the king of France, but looking to branch out to work for himself. That is, if everything goes to plan.

Eva is a novitiate and a healer who was rescued by the nuns when she was eight years old. Her past has left her scarred and she considers herself to be repulsive and hides

Redemption and romance...

Drago Gamponetti is a pirate...okay, a privateer, as he frequently mentions. A privateer who steals for the French, this will be his last mission, or so he believes.

Enter Eva, a scarred and vulnerable thief who is a noviatiate nun-healer. Summoned to heal a sick young girl, Jacqueline, Eva meets the pirate.

Clashes between the two lead to love, but is it possible to change a blackguard? To redeem a man whose soul is irredeemable? Can Eva learn to trust him? Is he trustwor

I was hoping for a little more swashbuckling, that being said, it's based on a turbulent historical time. Think Pirates of the Caribbean meets Anna Karenina. I enjoyed this book enough, there were some surprises I didn't expect and there were times I laughed and wanted to slap someone so that's always good. It's a good time passer and well fitting for the genre, just don't expect perfect historical accuracy (though the author did a pretty good job!). ...more

French Privateer, Captain Drago Gamponetti is given one final mission from his employer, the king of France: reclaim religious relics from a New Orleans cathedral and bring them back. Trouble begins when he's forced by a mysterious, veiled, novitiate nun to swear on the Bible to protect the very items he was instructed to steal. Worse, 60 British warships have amassed in Negril Bay, Jamaica, preparing to attack New Orleans. He must retrieve the sacred relics before the British arrive and seize t ...more

Two Thumbs Up

Absolutely my favorite book yet in the Pirates and Petticoats series. So many twists and turns kept me on the edge of my seat. The characters had drawn me in right from the start. I felt all their feelings through the entire book. Definitely worth the read!!

This is a dramatic, engrossing, suspenseful and exciting story. Drago is tough, stubborn, dedicated and loyal. Eva is caring, determined, brave and insecure. The two start on opposite sides of an issue, and Drago uses Eva for information that helps him. But Drago has a conscious that shows up occasionally, testing his convictions, especially when it comes to Eva and the twins. The storyline progresses from a simple opposites attract to all out war. I love how Drago evolves from a pirate to an en ...more

Several days before someone pounds on the abbey door late at night, a Jamaican white witch warns Sister Eva about a darkly shadowed man carrying a sick child. When the knock comes in November 1814, Eva opens the door to Captain Gamponetti, whose menacing manner and expectations of immediate obedience frighten Eva. But she is a healer and if her assumption is correct, the young girl suffers from contact with the deadly Manchineel tree. Saving her requires Eva to first bring down the fever. This n ...more

***ARC was provided to me for a fair and honest review***

Overall rating: 4/5 Much more action than you usually find in these types of books set in the 1800’s

Heroine (Eva): 4/5 She is a sister of the Ursuline Monastery, or at least when she takes her vows she will be. She has a past that is cast more in shadow than was ever in the light.

Hero (Drago): 4/5 He is a pirate captain that is also working for the French crown. He is looking to get out of both of those lives and starting anew as a shipp

Reviewed on behalf of 3 Degrees of Fiction Book Blog

This book wasn’t quite what I was expecting given the title of the book however I did enjoy it! I think that it was probably a little more factual than I thought it would be but it was still an intriguing read. The book was really well written and had a really good pace to it. This is the first book that I have read in this series and I think I would definitely like to read more. I definitely liked the

I was given this book for my honest opinion by netgalley.

I could not get into this book, I didn't feel anything for the characters. I tried to read this book for 4 days and only got to 24%, it is hard for me to give the book stars because I couldn't finish it.

I felt like the book dragged on, it was extremely slow and never really made a point. There were numerous grammar/spelling errors just in the first part of the book. The errors were enough to distract my reading flow, I would think the edit

Eva Trudeau was an orphan, became a pickpocket and had been staying the last seven years with the Nuns. She was waiting to hopefully take her vows. She met Captain Drago Viteri Gamponetti while in Jamaica. He bought her and the twins back to New Orleans just ahead of the British fleet. This is a great story and has everything, action, intrigue, danger, battles, and more. The characters appear courageous and willing to fight to keep what is theirs. The plot while complicated was very well put tog ...more

Purely entertaining

This continued story in the petticoat and pirate series is purely entertaining and redeems Captain Gampo of his illicit past while bringing him full circle to finding redemption and love behind the last door you would ever expect him too! It also sets up the beginning of the next story in the series quite nicely and I hope it brings us to Adrian's story!
