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!

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!

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.

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.

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 ...

I am happy that this was one of those Amazon deals where I was able to get a download for free because I would have been very upset otherwise. The language in the book, to be a historical, was raunchy and not romantic at all. The lines were unbelievable and the only saving grace was the sex was hot. The problem is I don't read romance novels for the sex only otherwise I would read erotica. If this is the tone in which this author (or sorry, set of authors) writes then I won't be spedning money on their books. Thanks but no thanks!

The Lord of Devil Isle is a book I normally wouldn't read as I'm more into contemporary romance. But it was free and seemed intriguing so I got it. What a great decision. The characters were charming and very likable. Captain Nick seemed every bit a rogue but throughout the book you saw what a good person he truly was, though still a bit rough around the edges. I personally like my hero that way. Eva was great as she tried to hide her feisty nature and show the world what a refined lady she was. Hard to do with Captain Nick around.

The action was riveting and the romance hot yet sweet. I love how Nick didn't just take his prize, Eva, like you hear of so many pirates, he wanted her to want to be there every step of the way. The man has scruples. And just when I thought everything would start to be wrapped up, the authors threw a boatload of suspense and danger our way that wove nicely in with history.

The only problem I had with the book was that I got so engrossed in it I didn't want to put it down. Stayed up to the wee hours of the morning to finish it. But was thoroughly satisfied that I had. This story had a little of everything, engaging plot, steamy sex, action and danger, and nice little touches of humor. Great read. So glad I picked it up.
