Hot...hot...sizzling hot exciting adult adventure!
Want to go pillaging, pirating, cavorting and falling in love with a dangerous, steely, bigger than life, virile male pirate with beauty, muscles, gorgeous green eyes and ruthless courage? Well then, this is the book for you!
Or would you rather find a beautiful blue-eyed, chestnut-haired, brave warm woman to carry off on an adventure?
Kai is from the islands and all he knows is pirating and unfeeling glory. He's smart and very dangerous and he's never been broken by love until he meets Miss Jolene Winston, an English lady with her new fiancé, Raul. Incidentally, Raul was turning out to be a mean-hearted bully who hurts Jolene.
Kai captures Raul's ship and carries Jolene off on an adventure into paranormal perplexities she had never imagined, while Raul scuttles off into the night. Meanwhile, Jolene thinks she will be murdered and stands up to this frightful beast of a pirate. No one had ever stood up to him before, so Kai is intrigued by this little spitfire.
Their chemistry is raging, hot, lustful, unforgiving and not for the faint of heart, so, if you want an erotic jaunt into historical fantasy, this will fulfill your dreams and more.
There are a few typos but the book was burning my fingers; it was so hot, so I didn't mind them in the least. Seriously, I thought the story was great fun and want to read more from Tashe Temple in the future. I give this book five sizzling stars.
