Publisher's Summary

Port Royal, Jamaica 1692
Living in a city deemed the wickedest in the world is no easy task for Miss Juliana Dutton. To make matters worse, with an ailing father and a drunken fool for a brother, she is forced to take over the running of the family business in order to survive. When a nosey suitor threatens everything, she spurns him and instead becomes engaged to the town idiot, Lord Munthrope. But is he an idiot? The more her problems push her closer to the man, the more she realizes he is not who he seems.
Alexander Hyde, the Pirate Earl, is the most feared pirate in the Caribbean - feared, successful, wealthy, handsome, and bored, so terribly bored. When an unexpected event allows him to get close to Juliana, a woman he has loved from afar for years, he takes it. But leading a double life causes more problems than it's worth. A restless crew and a long-time enemy out to capture and hang Alex, put Juliana in grave danger.
As tremors rock the city of Port Royal, Juliana's faith in God is equally shaken. Not only have things gotten worse, but she is confused by her feelings for both Munthrope and the Pirate Earl. Deception, intrigue, mutiny, death, betrayal, all attempt to tear the lovers apart. But the final blow comes when a massive earthquake strikes the city and threatens to sink it into the sea.

Great Story, Excellent Narration!

This was a really great story. I really loved all the characters and the story. Especially the Pirate Earl and Lord Munthorpe. Oh that Lord Munthorpe was very funny.

The story line and plot were excellent. There was some great dialogue. I loved the pirate battles.

This book wasn't overly religious. But it could be listed in the Christian Reading section as well as historical romance.

There is attraction and chemistry between the heroine, Julianna and Pirate Earl. There is NO sex in this book only a kiss or two, so if your looking for a book with lots of sex or any sex this is not it. However, even for a non religious person this was a wonderful story.

As for the narration it was absolutely fantasitc! The men sounded like men, everyone had their own distinct voice, and the narrator read with great emotion. Wonderful job Fiona Hardingham!

I do think the narration made this book even better. I totally recommend this book.

And to whomever produced the cover of this book! Huge kudos its a beautiful cover!

Inspirational Pirate Romance - YES!

I love pirates, and clean, engaging historical romance stories. This is a perfect blend! I read this a few years ago, and recently downloaded it on audible. This book kept my imagination busy and happy while I mowed the lawn, cleaned the kitchen and caught up on laundry. I've never enjoyed housework so much :)
