Revenge should be sweet, but it may cost him everything...
The Marquis de Valère escaped certain death in the French Revolution and is now an infamous privateer. Out to avenge the death of his mentor, Bastien discovers himself astonishingly out of his depth when confronted with a beautiful, daring young woman who is out for his blood...
Forgiveness is unthinkable, but it may be her only hope...
British Admiral's daughter Raeven Russell believes Bastien responsible for her fiancé's death. But once the fiery beauty crosses swords with Bastien, she's not so sure she really wants him to change his wicked ways...
(Terra's Thoughts) "Merde"! Our wonderful Shana Galen has done it again with another ripping romance that's sure to tickle your fancy plus some. The last of the Harcourt brothers has been found by a beautiful wild woman of the sea which leads us to a soul searing romance that will leave scorch marks instead of love bites.
Raeven Russell has a vendetta to act on and now only to find the man that shall see that Hell hath no fury like a woman's scorn or hurt for that matter. Raeven is a small delicate beauty to behold but none looking at her would expect this petite to breath Brimstone and Fire should you hurt someone she loves. This is a woman that is a perfect match for any rogue.
Sebastien Harcourt, Marquis of de Valere has been at sea for more years than he would care to count. Having lost his family at a young age during the Revolution, young Bastien left to find himself and try to bury all the horrors and memories that plague him. What better way than to find himself saying, "A pirate's life for me, ha ha, he he".
Our story starts out with a challenge issued for the death of one's love in a tavern of ill repute. More of less a Pirate's Cove that the average person would avoid at all cost but not for our lass petite.
Disguise and lies begin our adventure to an action packed romance that will rival the rolling seas. Every now and then a whitecap appears in the way of soul searing lust that will curl your toes and redden your nose. Ah....to be young and unpredictable looking for love, trouble, revenge and a little tit for tat. Sigh...........!
To say I loved this book is an understatement! I think this is the best of the trilogy and I would take a Bastien of my own any day of the week. My heart aches though as our storyline has ended with this book but I do so hope that our author will dream up something new for us very soon.
