Three sexy rakes wreak havoc in the romantic lives of three Regency ladies in this loosely yet cleverly connected trio of novellas. In "Stolen Pleasures," wealthy merchant's daughter Olivia Merrick discovers that her new husband, Sebastian Blake, is the notorious pirate "Captain Phoenix." In "Lucien's Gamble," Lucien Remington, the libertine owner of London's most scandalous gaming hall, is intrigued by the lovely Lady Julienne La Coeur, who has come to pay off her brother's gambling debts. In "Her Mad Grace," when Hugh La Coeur is forced to take shelter from a snowstorm in the mad Duchess of Glenmoore's estate, he meets the Duchess' fascinating companion, Charlotte. Day provides plenty of richly detailed love scenes in each tale, and her wickedly entertaining combination of steamy sex and bold language is certain to be appreciated by readers who like hot historicals by Virginia Henley and Susan Johnson.

Olivia has come face to face with a pirate moments after he has captured her father's ship. Apparently the pirate is her husband. Two weeks prior Olivia was married to Lord Sebastian Merrick via proxy. Olivia has no idea what her new husband looks like and the handsome man before her bears the signet ring of Lord Merrick. Their fevered attraction toward each other is undeniable and unstoppable. Sebastian frees Olivia's passion and Olivia creates a desire in Sebastian he has never experienced before. Sebastian left his title behind and became a pirate because of the horrible relationship he has with his father and so he feels he has nothing to offer a woman as good and kind as Olivia. Yet Sebastian craves her with an intensity that staggers him. Olivia is not giving up. She found her husband and intends to keep him; all she has to do now is convince him he's worth it. Sebastian must sever the bad ties he has acquired before he can settle down with Olivia. But when he is done, will his beautiful and loving wife still be waiting for him?
Stolen Pleasures is exciting and erotic. Sebastian is incredibly sexy while Olivia is beautiful and strong willed, together they make a perfect match. I hoped and prayed that Sebastian would find happiness after having so much pain in his past and I wished that Olivia would be the one to bring it to him. I adored them together. This is a really romantic, fantasy filled story. Olivia is being held captive by the handsome pirate who just happens to be her husband so nothing is forbidden. Yum! There is a lot of passion and emotion in Stolen Pleasures I really enjoyed it.
Lady Julienne has disguised herself as a man to enter a gentleman's club in search of her brother Hugh. Almost immediately Lucien, the proprietor of the club spots her and whisks her out of the room. After she confides to Lucien why she is there, Lucien has her escorted to a room where she is to spend the night. Julienne has always been fascinated and attracted to Lucien, but he is a notorious rake so she has avoided him. Lucien has wanted Julienne since he first saw her but she is untouchable to a man like him. Now that she is near him, his good intentions to leave her alone are wiped away by his desire for her. Lucien manages not to ravage her, but he does indulge in pleasuring her. When Julienne leaves with out saying goodbye the next morning, Lucien is distraught. Lucien and Julienne are clearly deeply attracted to each other but they feel they cannot be together. Julienne needs to help her brother and so Lucien sees a way to get close to her through him. Although she loves him, Julienne does not think Lucien could be faithful. She enjoys the courtship but does not think it will go any farther. But once Lucien realizes his true feelings for Julienne he has no intention of letting her go. He is ready and eager to leave his rakish ways behind. Now, he just has to convince Julienne of it.
Lucien's Gamble takes you on an emotional roller coaster. Lucien is like forbidden fruit to Julienne. He is strikingly handsome and charming to boot. Julienne is a beautiful young woman who craves the love and passion she has never felt before. There are moments when Lucien's love and desire for Julienne is staggering in its intensity. His feelings of hopelessness and sadness at the thought of not being with her are heartbreaking. This story is captivating and passionate. I was relieved and elated that Lucien and Julienne were able to make their relationship work.
Her Mad Grace
Hugh needs help; the wheel of his carriage has broken and the nearest house is the dilapidated one in front of him. Entering the home, he discovers it belongs to the woman known as `Her Mad Grace'. The house is inhabited by odd servants. Charlotte, by far, is the most intriguing one to Hugh. She is beautiful and confident and he is drawn to her with a deep desire he has never before experienced. Considering his past rakish ways, that is saying a lot. Charlotte is hopelessly drawn to Hugh as well. But she has secrets and can't afford for Hugh to discover them. Once they give into their passion for each other, Hugh senses something is amiss. He is determined to find out what it is and help Charlotte. When Hugh learns the whole truth, he is even more determined to help her. Because now he knows he loves Charlotte and he doesn't want to let her go. Charlotte has trouble trusting and with her heart breaking she pushes Hugh away. When she finally realizes what she wants, will it be too late, or has she lost the man she now realizes she has loved all along?
Charlotte falls head over heals for Hugh. At first in lust and then in love. She is a charming woman. Despite her experience with men, Charlotte is endearing in this new relationship with Hugh. Hugh's desperation for Charlotte to see him as a better man is profound. I really enjoyed Charlotte and Hugh. They are very sincere characters. Their passion and caring for each other is intense and beautiful. They are both tender and erotic lovers. I loved the mystery and the passion in this story. It is captivating.
Each story in Bad boys Ahoy starts at the moment the main the characters meet. I really liked that, I was drawn into the stories right away. I also liked how all of the characters were connected. Sylvia Day did a wonderful job expressing the emotions and feelings of the characters, especially the men. I felt the depth of their love and at times, the anguish for their women. Each woman in turn, is strong and beautiful. They are very well suited couples. I prefer not to read about a man's prior or current dalliances but the men did a good job distracting me once they set their minds and their hearts to these lovely ladies. Bad Boys Ahoy is powerfully arousing and deeply emotional. I highly recommend it!
