Review of Lynelle Clark's--A Pirate's Wife

A Pirate's Wife

Book Cover and synopsis from

Rosa Lee Almaida grew up in a sheltered life after she and her mother experienced a horrific ordeal in the middle of Africa. Meeting her father was the only good thing that came out of it. The man honored by all sailors on sea for his bravery and unconditional love. He was her hero the example of how her husband must be one day. Now twenty years later she is forced to return to the seas that took the life of many.
Abducted from her parents’ castle in Portugal, Rosa Lee Almaida was part of a ransom to The Falcon, a brutal Pirate King on the Island of Madagascar in exchange for her younger brother Pedro’s life.
She came face to face with The Falcon’s son Roberto de Ville, a man equally brutal but with a hidden agenda.
Reliving her past on the voyage she found that she admired the Pirate for his leader ship and skill, and when he saved her life she new this was the man for her but can she look past his pirate exterior to see the man for who he is? Through the inscriptions her parents left in their diaries she could make a choice to safe her life.
Marrying him she had to trust him unconditionally, hoping that her life would be spared. Giving her self over to the love and intimacy she craved.
Twice she had to take a live in order to safe those she cared for.
Roberto had to bring Rosa Lee from Portugal and bring her to the Falcon on the Isle of St Mary. From the stories told by her brother his mind was made up from the start that she would be his. While listening to her and saw her bravery through a daring escape he knew that this was the woman he waited for all his life. He was willing to set the life of Piracy away to become a farmer but first he had to set a plan in motion to change his life forever. He could trust only Pierre his second in command to bring it to fruitation.
Would he be able to change and safe them both?
The out come startled her at the end. The biggest lesson learned.
My Review:
I was asked by Lynelle to read this book and do a review.  This is not what I usually read, but it was very good.  It was a fast read and it had a lot of action.  I'm glad the love scene's weren't any more explicit that they were (I don't really like that kind of thing).  I'll have to say I was pleasantly surprised.  I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more.  It was well written with likable characters.  And it is true what the synopsis says:  Don't judge a book by it's cover.  Rosa Lee thought that Roberto was a Pirate, and in the end she finds out something totally different, but I won't give anymore of a spoiler.  I suggest you read this book, I think you'll like it.
