EXCELLENT! This is one page-turner of an adventure romance! This book had everything--unique characters, ghosts, pirates, werewolves, zombies, a sea witch, and fantastic storytelling. Loved it!

Mistress of the Stone is a paranormal romance reader's haven. The author delivers the right about of romance and world building, and the way she describes the story you'll feel like you're right there. You get not only a love story, but you also get a curse, shifters, ghost, gargoyles, witch and to top it all off, one sexy pirate and one hot pirate hunter. This book had me hooked from start to finish.

I don't want to give out too much detail because this book is too good to spoil. I loved all the characters even the villain. I even felt sorry for him at times, but then at other times I really disliked him for what he was doing. I really enjoyed both Luisa and Xander, but there were times that I really wished Xander would have stepped up to the plate more and showed how much he really cared about Luisa, but do you ever get everything you want in a story. You can tell Luisa and Xander were destined to be together right from the start and that makes you really see the sparks fly each time they are together.

I recommend this to any paranormal romance reader that loves a good, hot romance and lots of action.

A rollicking, well detailed cross-genre tale which mixes pirates with werewolves in the Caribbean.

Luisa Tavares is a Portuguese sea-captain's daughter at the helm of her own pirate ship, the Coral. Her feminine side is kept well hidden though she privately enjoys captured silk clothes. Every man aboard has sworn an oath to her father to protect her and treat her with respect, and their loyalty is tested when word reaches Luisa that her father has been captured by a mad Frenchman called Luc Saint Saveur and taken to a Caribbean island known as Isla de Sempiterno.

Barely pausing to spit at her injured English prisoner, Luisa sets course for the island. Her motley crew includes a fortune-reader and a devoted cabin boy, in a well-characterised set of people. The nautical details are realistic, if not always attractive, and at this point we realise that there is something odd about the injured Inglese Xander Daltry. What gives it away... could it be the bag of wolfsbane tied around his neck, or the speed of his healing from a severe wound?

Some stirring adventures at sea later Luisa and Daltry reach Isla de Sempiterno, where the tone of the story changes: the lush jungle conceals horrors as creatures stalk them and the undead rise from the ground. Changing to a wolf form helps Daltry fight off vicious attackers such as gargoyles. By now Daltry has won Luisa's trust and he explains that the moonstone pendant she wears around her neck is the twin of one on the island, and the two must be brought together at the time of the blood moon to save his sister Sybil who is marooned there and cannot leave. His sister helps them, as a practising herbal witch, but Daltry has somehow neglected to mention that she is also a ghost.

Zannini did a fantastic job of immersing the reader into the life of a pirate. The book has an extremely unique outlook: putting the heroine in a position outside of a typical female realm, as a pirate captain. The Romeo and Juliet-ish story enhances the plot with Luisa, the heroine pirate captain wanting the perfect man for her, and strangely enough finding the perfect match in Xander Daltry, a pirate-hunting captain. The intermixing of other paranormal entities from witches and curses to werewolves and zombie-like creatures adds another surprising element to the story. Overall, the book is a captivating and enjoyable read.

I was provided a copy of the book by BTS eMag for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review - all conclusions are my own responsibility.

There are some books in the romance genre that are so wrapped up in "finding love," the entire plot seems to revolve around the needs of the two main characters. Even when there's danger involved, these kinds of books tend to be anti-climactic. The man has no purpose without the woman. The woman has no future without the man. They live for each other and apart they are nothing.

I'm sure some people find this terribly romantic. But I find it depressing. There's more to love than finding someone who fills your personal needs. There's more to love than lust and obsession. There's individuality too. There's the will to take care of yourself and the strength to be alone.

Yep, I said it. There is no love without the strength to be alone.

This romance novel was a refreshing change from many of the Young Adult novels I've read in the last year that are high on love triangles, teen angst, and emotional dependency. This romance novel has two strong characters, capable of being alone. There is no melodramatic inner-struggle where the man tries for 100 pages to say he loves the protagonist. There are no chapters dedicated to the obsessive idolization of the leading man. No statements from the protagonist about how she'd rather die than live without him. No place where the main female character just can't decide who she loves more and I, as the reader, just want to smack her senseless.

No, this is a well-crafted book with two mature leading characters. It is refreshing to read about a man using the "L" word on his first attempt. Refreshing to cheer for a woman who understands herself, trusts her instincts, and has the strength to be alone. Not only that, but the plot is amazing. There are pirates. Curses. Werewolves. Ghosts. Sacred Stones. Witches. And an entire cast of strong supporting characters. I couldn't put this book down. It was that good.
