Serena Carlyle knows that the life most aristocratic daughters expect to have will never be for her. At twenty-five, Serena is firmly on the shelf and her goal for this particular season is to ensure that her stepsister, Charity, isn't pushed into an unhappy engagement by her mother. Though, to be honest, the Earl of Savage - the man Charity's mother wants her to marry - could be the perfect bridegroom for Charity, if he gave up his rakish ways. The earl is not only their neighbor, he's handsome, young, wealthy, and Serena would love nothing more than to have his aid in stopping the smugglers that are veritably crawling the coast by their homes. However, Serena's first encounter with her potential brother-in-law is anything but ordinary. A kiss in a darkened room makes Serena yearn for things she knows she cannot have...and starts her fascination with the tempting Alexander Savage. Soon Serena finds herself falling for a man whose secrets are the stuff of legend. For Alex isn't...
Good: Chemistry and the action in the story. I thought the story flowed well and the characters were well developed. It definitely kept me interested and the fact that I severely disliked a few of the characters , showed how well written they were.
Not so good: (spoiler?) I did not like how hard these poor women had to fight for their men. At times, I really wanted to ask if they had any pride. This is actually my not so good for the whole series. Strong women turn weak fir men. Not my favorite scenario.
The not so good did not stop me from reading the next few in the series. That is why I gave it 3 starts. Enjoy!

But Serena finds out that Alex is betrothed to her younger sister Charity. Is Alex and Serena's love doomed? This is a book that I won at a pirate workshop at the RT Booklovers' Convention in 2011 in Los Angeles, and I was SO excited to have won it. This was the first book of Katherine Ashe's that I'd ever read, and I was impressed by the depth of the fictional world she's created. This book is exceptionally well-written and captivating. Also, there is something incredibly alluring about a noble whose alias is a pirate who attacks the ships of other nobles. I really like that Ashe created a different kind of heroine than the supermodel run-of-the-mill sort. With delightful plot twists and a strong, saucy heroine, this is one that will keep you up long into the night, unable to stop turning pages. Now, after...
