Pirate Captain Devon Hall is the epitome of the lovable rogue. He’s all good looks and charisma, but is also pretty ruthless when he needs to be, and most of the not so good things he does are to help/benefit other people. When his father is killed on the instruction of the governor of Jamaica, Rupert Campbell, Devon swears revenge, and he sets out to make sure that he destroys the man and everything he has. When Devon is injured, he wakes through periods of unconsciousness to a voice and room he doesn’t recognise. When he becomes fully awake and aware of his surroundings, he’s shocked to discover that he’s in the house of his biggest enemy, and is being looked after by the man’s nephew, Brett Campbell. At first, Devon tries to pretend that he’s just an innocent traveller who’s been attacked on the road, but Brett tells him that he knows exactly who Devon is because there are wanted pictures all around the house and there’s no need to worry because he’s not like his uncle. Brett is willing to look after and protect Devon for as long as it takes him to heal. Devon is unsure at first, but as the days go on the two men form a friendship, and Devon begins to trust Brett and enjoy his company. Devon also finds Brett to be really attractive, so he’s happy with this arrangement.
Brett Campbell is nothing like the man people expect him to be. When they find out who his uncle is, they expect him to be the same cold-hearted and brutal person. But Brett is a sweet and caring man who just wants to be happy and treat people how he would like to be treated. Brett doesn’t agree with how his uncle runs Jamaica, or how he treats the people, especially the slaves that work on his plantation. On more than one occasion, Brett has stepped in to protect the slaves from the harsh and unfair foremen on the plantation and the punishments that they hand out. He knows how corrupt his uncle is, because his uncle basically stole his inheritance from him, and now by helping and hiding one of the most wanted pirates in the house, he’s giving his uncle another reason to hate him more than he already does if he ever finds out. Brett is surprised by the connection and attraction he feels towards Devon as he’s never been with another man, but he knows it feels right, even if other people will see it as being wrong.
What started out as one man doing what he knew in his heart to be the right thing by giving aid to someone in need, leads to a journey of swashbuckling sea battles, fighting for survival, unexpected encounters, falling in love, and finding peace and happiness.
This book was just an awesome read. I was transported to another little world, and I was really sad to leave it when the story ended. The plot totally captivated me, and I wish the book could have been a bit longer. The characters were so enjoyable and easy to connect with. I think my favourite was actually one of the supporting characters, Cody Sullivan. He was sweet, quick-witted and mischievous. I just wanted to give him a big hug and look after him. I thought he was so adorable and would love to have a story just about him.
For me, this book pushed all of the right buttons, even though the romance was a very slow burner. But because there was so much going on, I felt that it was right for the romance to almost take a side step. When we do finally get down to the first kiss and the first time they sleep together, it made it all the more satisfying.
If you like historical romance or stories about pirates (how can you not?) then I’d highly recommend this book.
***The ARC was provided by Dreamspinner Press. My review is an honest opinion of the book***
There were so many elements that would make me like this book: Pirates, romance, fights, rescue, bad guys getting their comeuppance … but I did not love this. The writing is a bit stilted and the details are kind of bland; I don’t really feel anything for the characters or the romance. There’s a lot of tell not show here and conversations just don’t feel quite natural. There are a few love scenes, but at one point, Brett is half dead and it feels kind of icky for them to be attempting sexy times. This feels like an early writing attempt as far as dialogue and writing style go, but the plot wasn’t horrible. In fact, thinking back to Treasure Island, the style of writing is similar in that there’s lots of action and plot, and it’s much less character driven -- not my favorite thing. Still, the good parts were okay and the less good parts really weren’t the worst I’ve read. I’d give the author another try in the future.
