Book Description

Growing up sheltered, Rosa Lee Almaida lived a carefree life after both she and her mother experienced a horrific ordeal on the seas, and in the middle of Africa, when she was only four years. Meeting her adoptive father was the only joyful and good experience as a result thereof; the man honored by all sailors on land and sea for his bravery and unconditional love. He was her hero, and a model for her future husband-to-be. Now, twenty years later, she is forced to return to the seas that claimed the lives of many, including her birth father.

Abducted from her parents’ castle in Portugal, Rosa Lee became the Falcon’s ransom―a brutal pirate king on the island of Madagascar―in exchange for her younger brother Pedro’s life. It was here she met the Falcon’s son, Roberto de Ville, a man equally fierce, albeit with a hidden agenda. Reliving her past during the voyage, she found herself admiring the pirate for his leadership and skills, but would she be able to look past his exterior to see the man for who he really was?

Through the inscriptions her parents left in their diaries, she made a choice to save her life. But in an unexpected turn of events, she had to trust him unconditionally, believing that her life would be spared when she gave herself over to the love and intimacy for the man she craved.

Taking Rosa Lee from Portugal, Roberto takes her to the Falcon on the Isle of St. Mary. From stories recounted by her brother, he came to one conclusion; she would be his. Throughout their time together, he came to admire Rosa Lee for her bravery during a daring escape, which reinforced his belief that she was the woman he’d waited for all his life. Roberto was more than willing to set his life as a pirate aside, but first a plan had to be set in motion―one that would change his live forever. However, he could trust only one man, Pierre, his second in command, to assist him in seeing his plan to the end.

Ultimately, the end result shocked Rosa Lee, and an important lesson was learned: Never judge a book by its cover.

Author’s note: A Pirate’s Wife contains love scenes and foul language, due to its portrayal of both real events and people. Parental guidance of 16 is advised.

5.0 out of 5 stars Step back in time for pirates and passion September 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a great read! This story begins in the 1600's and spans a twenty year period. The main characters "chronicle" their hardships aboard a sailing vessel, and the devastation they suffered after a storm claimed the ship. Rosa-Lee, and her parents are well-rounded and believable, as is the mysterious Roberto. Rosa-Lee finds herself in the middle of an elaborate scheme that she doesn't fully understand, and the romance that unfolds takes her by surprise.
I noticed a few small grammar issues, but it doesn't take away from the fact that this is a great story. Anyone who enjoys historical romance will love this. I highly recommend this book, for ages 17 and up (erotic content).

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly Surprised September 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I was pleasantly surprised when I read this book. Lynelle asked me to read it and review it. It had a lot of action and was well written. It was also a very fast read. Rosa Lee was a very strong character, and when she meets Roberto she doesn't know really what to think of him. But in the end she finds out that you really can't judge a book by it's cover. I suggest you read this, you'll like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well written with a great story!!! July 8, 2013

A Pirate's Wife takes place in the 1600's. Forbidden love is the early theme but moves in so many different mysterious directions. This is really an ode to love and how it takes shape no matter what period in time and to whom it affects. The characters feelings and emotions are very true to life. Written more like a memoir with diary entries, taken place over many different time periods, reading the private messages made me feel as if I were ease dropping.

This story was extremely well written. I would call it flawless. The words fit perfect with it's content. The writer was clear and precise in the way she shared such deep feelings of characters she has never even met. She surely has a gift and knows how to entertain her readers with this compelling adventure story.

"I begged him to kiss me and at first he was hesitant. I pressed myself against him and turned my face upward, stretching as high as I could. He was so tall that even if I stood on my tiptoes I could not reach his face. For a long minute he fought it. I saw the hesitation, the fight for control, but eventually..."

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read March 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Rosa Lee Almaida has once experienced a terrifying ordeal on the seas as a child. Twenty years later she returns to the seas, abducted from her parents' castle in Portugal as she becomes part of a ransom to The Falcon, a Pirate King on the island of Madagascar. Fate and unexpected events turn the wheels, and Rosa falls in love with the Falcon's son Roberto de Ville. Lynelle Clark masterfully developed their story, making me feel glued to each page right to the very end. `A Pirate's Wife' is an intricate tale that takes the reader through a provocative mix of events. It is seamlessly written, brimming with action and romance. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Definitely a must read that I highly recommend.
