Publisher's Summary

The handsome mercenary demands her surrender....
Félicité despises the Spanish and their mercenaries who march into New Orleans to subdue the French Creoles revolting against Louisiana's transfer to Spain. Still, she is not foolish enough to insult them. It's her adoptive brother Valcour who does that, though she gets the blame. Because of it, and in a desperate bid to prevent the execution of her father for treason, she becomes the mistress of ruthless Irish privateer and Spanish officer, Lt. Colonel Morgan McCormack.
Morgan regrets his misjudgment of Félicité but cannot let her go, not even after her father faces a firing squad. When she flees New Orleans to join brother following the tragedy, he sails in her wake aboard his vessel, the Black Stallion.Félicité lands on a tropical island that's a pirate haven where desperate men vie to have her. Though claimed once more by the Irish privateer, she must rescue him in her turn, for someone will stop at nothing to see them both dead. Can courage and desperate desire ever lead to trust and love?

EMBRACE AND CONQUER

I gave this book a 5 star rating because the author earned it. The history was accurate and the characters were truly true to life. The twists and turns had me often on the edge of my seat.
I would recommend this story to ANYONE who enjoys history and a curlyque twisty romance.
I love the complete story.

Not good

This story is dry and the narrator makes it even worse. I like a good bodice ripper but the way this one is done ruins what may have been a great story in the hands of a better Auther and narrator.
