I don't like being forced to buy the next book in order to find the end of this one. I expect to find a beginning, a middle and an end in every book I buy. I don't appreciate a marketing ploy that forces readers to buy the next book in a series.This book just stopped, leaving everything hanging until the next book is written and published. I've read many series of books or sequels and every one ended its own story and suggested the reader might want to read the next story in the series. Such as Mary Balogh's "Simpley" series of about eight books. To use an analogy, this book would be akin to going to a movie and have it abruptly end and someone announces "that's all folks, if you want to see the end of this movie, come back in a few months and pay again to see the the rest of this movie." If I never know how this book ends, I won't ever buy another of this author's books. At the end of this book, the characters hadn't progressed or expanded any more than on the very first page. Over three hundred pages of contrived verbiage that stood in place and never got on with developing the protagonists or the story. A lot of page filling without anything going anywhere. Drag out this "imperfect" story in order to sell two more books just like it, right? That seems to be the ultimate plot of this book.

I found this to be a good read, interesting plot with interesting characters. I found the story to be believable and could see this to have happened back when. I felt at times it was to lengthy and my mind did wonder. I did not care for how the story ended, there is much left unsaid but many different ways go to build a wonderful read. I would have thought with the page count the book would have been farther along when it ended.

Merry is a handful as Morgan is about to find out, Merry does not plan to marry but her father has other ideas. She finds out he is planning to marry her off, she decides that isn’t happening and goes off to put a stop to it. She is in the wrong place at the wrong time and is kidnapped. The one who kidnapers her works out who she really is. He takes her to Morgan on the ship they sail away. She fights Morgan the whole time but there is an attraction.

Morgan keeps her with him until he can find out who she is and at that point she thinks he will take her home. She doesn’t dare tell him this and it is driving him crazy along with his wanting her. He is a pirate and has his reason for what he does. He has tons of baggage. Both Merry and Captain Morgan are hiding their true identity. Morgan is older by many years then Merry and both have a lot to learn. Will they learn it and go their separate ways or will they grow together and find out they can’t live without each other. You guess is as good as mine, the author will be telling us a little more in book 2 which will be coming out in Nov.

I did enjoy this story and it has lots of interested and a wonderful plot if it had just moved at a faster pace. I did not care for the ending and I felt the book was a little too long for no father then it came.

4 out of 5 stars ARC for Review

Lady Meredith aka Merry Ann Merrick finds herself in the position to be married off to someone she dislikes. She finds herself out one night on an adventure when she is forced into marriage. When entering a tavern called Gray’s End where she should not be, her life will quickly change.

She finds herself kidnap and is held hostage by Varian Morgan a pirate and captain of his own ship. She has heard stories about his conquests among the sea and his trail of women. She is weary of him but is attracted to him but denies it knowing that if she gives into him he would more willingly give her freedom.

Merry and Varian both have secrets that they are hiding. She refuses to tell him her identity especially when she finds out that he blames her supposedly betrothal Viscount Rensdale for his wife’s death. But who is really Varian as he appears well educated with the books in his cabin in other languages and what other secrets does he have.

Living in his cabin in a ship of only males can they fight their growing attraction as mere kisses could lead to even more than either can handle. Can Merry keep her guard against entanglement with men or will she fall captive for her capture who is the master of seduction?

I can't believe that this book has some 5 and 4 star reviews. Those reviewers are either delusional or simply can not recognize unbelievably bad writing.

I bought this book because the second book in this series has almost all 5-star reviews, but I should not have been taken in. I want to keep others from making my mistake.

I could not come close to finishing this book, and I wish I had stopped well before Chapter 7 (less than half-way through) when I gave up. I actually kind of liked the first chapter and our female protagonist, so I made an attempt to finish the book in order to see what happened to the characters. I just could not keep reading this horrible writing, and it became clear that nothing was going to happen in any case. The writer seems to have been following some story arc that requires a certain number of chapters, and she was going to write another chapter whether she had anything to say or not.

I would have liked to have counted how many times the female protagonist told the male protagonist "If you kiss me again, I'm going to kill you," but I couldn't stand the idea of scouring back through the book to find out.

Here is a sample quote that doesn't give any spoilers, not that I think spoilers in this case would affect the reader's experience of this book.

"As his dark gaze did a subtle inspection of her, he noted that she was exceptionally well made, long of line and lush of curve, just where a man would want them lush."

Ugh! Do not buy this book. There are probably a million that deserve your money and your time more than this one.
