Genre: Historical, Pirates, Romance
Paperback: 384 pages
Rating: 5

Description from the amazon:
Those who survive the wrath of Red Robert would never guess the pirate's secret—Red Robert is a woman, masquerading as a man. Yet though the swift steel of her sword has spread her reputation to the farthest corners of the map, there is only one treasure she seeks—the blood of her lifelong nemesis… Blair Colm.

Shipwrecked on a desert isle with the handsome Logan Hagarty, she soon rediscovers her femininity in the irresistible captain's arms. But their paradise skies darken with the appearance of their common enemy. Now the two must summon all their strength and cunning to best the evil Colm, and protect the fierce love that has grown between them.

My two-bits:
In-a-word(s): treacherous (heart)
This book has just the right amount of pirating, sailing, swashbuckling and shipwrecking with a dash of romance during the late 1600s to create a fun and historical read for the pirates in us all.


* part of ...and a bottle o'rum event


  1. wohoo pirates!!!!! I have not read abut them in ages

  2. I love swashbuckling fantasies - but what bugs me is that once these gals get stranded on some deserted island the hair on their legs immediately stops growing, they never get cramps, and they always smell like fresh-picked roses!
    [maybe I'm just jealous LOL]

  3. Thank you for your review, Velvet! This book sounds lovely!*_*

  4. I have to agree with M.A.D.. It's just not fair!

  5. Ooh, pirates AND a woman masquerading as a man! That sounds awesome, especially when there's a real man trapped on a desert island with her ;)
