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 ...more

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!!
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 ...more

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 ...more
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 ...more
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! ...more
