Sit still. Be quiet. Obey.
Adora has lived her entire life under her mother’s strict rules, but when obedience means marrying a man twice her age, something deep within her snaps. Fleeing the night of her wedding, she boards what she assumes is a trade ship and hides among the cargo she hopes won’t be touched until she’s far away from the life she left behind.
She never anticipated being found.
Or finding Fenix.
Fenix believes in freedom, expression, and adventure. When a woman in a wedding gown is found in the belly of his ship with eyes like fire and the disposition of something almost broken, he wants nothing more than to release the flames and mend the cracks.
But with her past catching up to them, he may not have the chance.
When Anne contacted me about her book, I was a little sceptic at first because of the pirates. I’ve never read a pirate romance before, because I’ve always had it stuck in my head, that I wouldn’t like them. Though, at the time she wrote I felt like trying something new, and I thought this would be the perfect opportunity. Especially as it’s quite short. I’m still not convinced this will be a trope I’ll love as much as some of the others. However, I really liked this one.
I adore Adora’s attitude and sass, which is way more than I had expected. Seriously, it’s refreshing with a woman who wants more than life than “the dream” i.e. marriage, security, white fence… you know, the “perfect package”. But in all honesty, the captain, Fenix, almost rivals Jack Sparrow in being swoon-worthy. Because wow.
“You’re starting to look a little more like yourself.”
“How would you know?” I ask.
A single shoulder lifts in a lazy half shrug. “A woman is most beautiful when she’s most herself.”
So if you find yourself wanting a quick pirate-romance fix, look no further!
