Publisher's Summary

Captain Blackheart leads a simple life of roving the seas, wenching and treasure-hunting. He steers clear of romantic entanglements that could tie him to land. He shouldn't have any trouble keeping his hands off the gently-bred lady he's commissioned to abduct - except his cargo turns out to be feisty and passionate! She'd be a prize worth treasuring, if having her aboard didn't jeopardize everything.
Clara Halton thought the worst loss she could suffer was to be stripped of her family, stricken with consumption, and left to die alone. Then she meets Blackheart. Their attraction is ruinous...and irresistible. When he delivers her like so much plunder, his mission is over - but hers has just begun. She'll force him to acknowledge their connection, even if she must storm his ship to do it!

I had the pleasure of being reintroduced to the feisty Clara from 'The Earl's Defiant Wallflower' and the rogue, Capt. Blackheart from 'The Major's Faux Fiancé' where they separately played supporting characters in each of those two earlier books.
I think, so far, this has been the best story in this series. I simply loved the games between them and their total trust of and their continuous support for each other. Both are very strong characters, yet quite different from each other.
Neither of them are that young that their decisions and actions might be considered irresponsible. They know what they are doing and they know exactly how to get what they want and enjoy adventures together.
This story is written so well that I would have been quite happy for it to carry on indefinitely. In fact, I think it would probably make a great TV series or full length movie.
Kudu's to Erica Ridley, the author and Stevie Zimmerman, our narrator, for a job well done!

Entertaining

I love pirate stories. A dashing captain; a shy maiden. Oh, wait, make that a not-so-shy widow. The captain's still dashing though.

A great little story in the series. Short but fun.

Production of the audiobook could have been better. It sounded a bit tinny.

Now on to the Duke's story.
