I enjoy a good pirate romance every once in a while, and this one got such good reviews that I was optimistic. I didn't dislike this book, but I don't care to reread it either. I am an avid rereader, so this tells you what I think about this book.

What I like:

I liked the exotic locals. They traveled from the Caribean to the middle east to Italy and byond all in one book. The descriptions of the locals were interesting. The crew was likeable. I liked that this wasn't a cookie cutter romance even though it is a pirate romance.

What I did not like:

There was so much political stuff going on that it dragged the pace of the book down. I found myslef skimming some of the political talks towards the end. I think the author could have the same situation without going into quite so much detail. The hero's lack of communication on why he could/would not get married annoyed me. The heroines views on her life and "living in sin" were a little too modern to me. I had a hard time believing that she would feel this way.

All in all it was a pretty good book for the price. It wasn't my favorite pirate romance but an ok read.

STORY BRIEF:
Alanis lives with her grandfather the duke. Her parents died when she was 12. She has been engaged to Lucas for most of her life. Lucas has been away for several years with the British Navy. Alanis is tired of waiting so she sails to Jamaica to be with him. Along the way the pirate Eros attacks the ship and kidnaps her. Lucas has possession of Eros' sister Jasmine, and Eros plans to make a trade. Alanis realizes that she is attracted to Eros in ways she never felt with Lucas. Alanis also has a yearning to travel the world. Eros has been causing problems for King Louis XIV of France. Eros also has other enemies who want his possessions and death. Eros had drama in his youth which resulted in his inability to trust or love a woman. All of his relationships end with him leaving and the women in tears.

REVIEWER'S OPINION:
This is a long book with a lot of political intrigue, kidnappings, torture, escape, and battles. The romance is strangely frustrating. The couple is lustfully drawn to each other, but too many contrived conflicts keep them apart. The motivations for some of the things they say and do to each other are a mystery. He's passionate one minute and cold the next. He pretends to be with another woman just to hurt her. She lies to him to get him to do something. Their conflicts were not interesting. The surrounding story of danger and family history mysteries didn't appeal to me. Dialogue was ordinary. Nothing really set the story apart. I kept finding my self wanting to put it down and do something else. However there was one interesting part, Eros' strategy when leading an attack toward the end of the book.

A minor annoyance: the cover picture didn't match. Eros has hair tied in a queue, a crescent scar on his left temple, earrings, and a gold medallion. Cover guy had none of these.

This novel started off slowly and did not build momentum until nearly halfway through, then had many steamy romantic themes plus a lot of intrigue. Later there were some boring war stories before eventually the novellist united the hero and heroine for HEA. Up until the Agadir part of the story, I almost abandoned this novel. However at nearly halfway through the book it really picked up. I give the first part of the book two stars and the second four stars, thus my the overall rating of three stars.

I liked the main characters: Eros was very complex and his personality evolved with her influence, and Alanis maintained high standards for her own conduct, and showed to be very brave in the face of adversity.

I found the war sections of the book to be extensive and boring for a romance novel, but if correct, they were well-researched as they seemed very thorough. I don't know if any of these battles were based on actual ones or were developed by the author, but they seemed realistic to me.

The author was very good at describing situations visually, especially architecture and ruins. She used a wide vocabulary, but a few of the more complex words were used incorrectly. She used good philosophical statements, e.g., "The truth may be the subjective perspective of a more complex reality," and quoted from many historical philosophers and poets that would have been well known to the aristocracy of the time period. She was superb in the way she revealed Eros's history and true identity gradually and did not give us too much too early, keeping up the mystery. She also did a great job of tying in Sanah's cryptic predictions, especially the ones that seemed incongruous to our expectations of the storyline at the time Alanis heard them. Bravo.

My pet peeve about this story was that it was riddled with modern day colloquialisms. I fully expected her to have someone say "Get over it" or "Damn straight," that was the level of some of the lines in the book. Some slang that she used thinking it was archaic was not of the period, but rather came into vogue in the mid-19th century.

There were a few scenes that left me scratching my head, for example, in Kingston, the ladies visiting Alanis and Jasmine made a spectacle of themselves that no true lady would do. Also the servants of Silverlake were recalled as "our boys" and one had taught Alanis to ride, yet it was in Jamaica and not England, and she had been brought up in a different home than Silverlake. It took way too long for the grandfather to find out that Eros took Alanis with him to the Meditteranean, Silverlake would have been all over it and sent the message immediately.

I thought the title did not suit the book that well, but it was likely intended to draw in readers who like erotic romance. This book was as much historical fiction as it was romance.
