Book Description

Prison …
Shipwreck …
Shark Attack ...

Is Eve Upshall jumping from the frying pan into the fire when she lets a half-naked stranger pull her from the stormy sea? Captain Nicholas Scott is a rogue who takes advantage of every situation, whether it’s salvaging priceless loot or seducing a proper lady. And he makes it very clear he plans to take advantage of his new find in the most delicious way possible.

Eve’s whole future depends on everyone believing she is the soul of propriety. But with Nick refusing to transport her to her prospective bridegroom, and the balmy Bermuda nights whispering of unimaginable pleasures, how can any woman resist the lure of the … Lord of Devil Isle.

About the Author

Connie Mason, who started her romance-writing career after she became a grandmother, once told 48 Hours that she does her best work in bed. That work being writing, of course! For her newest releases, Connie has teamed up with Mia Marlowe, a rising star of steamy historical romance. Connie lives near Tampa, Florida, and Mia lives in Boston, Massachusetts.

Award winning author Mia Marlowe writes historical romance for Kensington Publishing and Sourcebooks. Her debut title received acclaim from romance luminaries. #1 New York Times bestseller Victoria Alexander says Mia's Touch of a Thief has "adventure and heat and everything I want in a great story!" UK's BooksMonthly has crowned Mia Marlowe "the queen of saucy historical romance."

Mia learned much of what she knows about storytelling from singing. A classically trained soprano, she won the District Metropolitan Opera Auditions and shared a stage with Placido Domingo. As she prepared for operatic roles, she devised back stories for her characters. Since she's worn a real corset, and had to sing high C's in one, she empathizes with the trials of her fictional heroines. But in Mia's stories, they don't die in a Parisian garret. They get to live and keep the hero!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot Pirates, assumed identity and lust! October 19, 2012
By Carin
Format:Kindle Edition
Eve Upshall has had it hard, falsely accused she landed in prison. When she does manage to get a way out the ship she is on runs aground on the coral outside of Bermuda (Devil Isle before the British renamed it) when she jumps into the ocean to save her friend she is soon surrounded by sharks. All of this is bad but worse is being rescued by the sexy Captain Nicholas Scott, who was on his way to claim the wreck as salvage when he takes notice of the three young women about to be attacked by sharks.

Nicholas Scott loves women, but they are to stay firmly in the mistress category after being betrayed by his wife who while dying admits to an affair with his then friend. Everyone on Devil Isle looks to Nick as the Lord of the island and he feels a responsible for them. He like to portray himself as a tough pirate but he really is just a wounded soul in need of the love of a good woman who can also put him in his place.

After Nick rescues Eve and her friends he puts them up in his house and commits to finding them husbands, as they were traveling to the Colonies to meet husbands and now because of the storm and ship wreck Eve's friends have no desire to go anyplace on a boat again. Nick is convinced he can make Eve his mistress, Eve doesn't want to be anyone's mistress or wife on Devil Isle, she wants to go to Richmond to find her family that is living there.

This is an extremely fun book with Eve trying to come off as a lady but having the mouth of a sailor and Nick who is always trying to be the big bad pirate when really he is a nice guy (mostly) This story has steamy sex scenes, pirate rivalry, verbal sparing between the hero and the heroine as well as the side stories of Éve's friends and traveling companions, the American revolution and even a cold blooded murder or two.

Well written, sexy and hot without being smutty, funny, heartwarming and a wonderful adventure. A five star book all the way around!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot November 11, 2012
By lrw
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I absolutely loved this book. I couldn't put it down and I read it in one sitting. I had been disappointed with the books I was getting from Amazon. I was beginning to hate reading. This book reminded me of the reasons why I enjoy reading so much. The book was well-researched and steeped with historical fact. The language was appropriate given the time period. The character development was such that it felt genuine and the chemistry between the two main characters had me fully involved. I am currently searching out other books by these authors. This book goes to my keeper pile.

3.0 out of 5 stars Gets the job done but not the best by far July 23, 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I've read several of Ms. Mason's books and this one caught me a bit off guard. At it's core it's a good, standard romance. Fairly predictable. A couple of things bothered me about it though. For starters, I don't know if Ms. Mason just discovered the c word for the male anatomy or what but it was GROSSLY overused. I also might add, a major buzzkill. I've read enough romance novels to know that there are plenty of other synonyms for the male anatomy that don't conjure up images of a brutish man. The other major thing that bothered me (and I noticed this much more up front) - WAY too many references to ...um...everything being about sex. The ocean, the boat, you name it. It got me a little nauseous, frankly. Once you get past these two flaws, there is a decent story there at its core. It seems a bit rushed towards the end but it did get the job done. It was as satisfying enough romance.

By RKP
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It started out with lots of action, which grabbed me right off... Great love story, love the hero and the little tid bits of comedy... Just needed a little something something like maybe an epilogue to sum up a couple of things... But I really enjoyed the read... Love the Pirate themes best when reading because you know you get it all, hero, action, love ...

This isn't one of Connie Mason's better storylines. And the steamy sex scenes were non-existent. It was tepid at best. I was disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars disappointed November 18, 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was very disappointed to buy this book as a new release of 2010,only to find out that is has been released before, and I had already read this story. I can't remember that this title was used on the other book or not, but I RECOGNIZED THE STORY AS SOON AS I STARTED READING THE BOOK. THE COVER WAS NOT FAMILIAR TO ME EITHER.
I would appreciate that a book is a reprinting be advertised BEFORE I BUY IT!!!

This book is ok. Fairly interesting plot, but some odd choices of language in the intimate parts. Odd enough that they'd spoil the mood.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very coarsely written, tacky and vulgar May 19, 2013
By Feehan5
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Could have been a good book. I liked the characters and the story, but the writing was vulgar and coarse. The word cock seems to be the authors favorite word, with a few crotches thrown in. The author doesnt seem to know how to write a sentence without alluding to a cock. It ruined the story for me. It didnt feel professional. I wont be reading anything else by this author.
