I found this book at a Flea Market for .10 cents. It was one of my best investments!!!
I am a lover of all books. I read anything from Romance to Sci Fi, Horror to Self Help!!!
All though I was always taught "Don't judge a book by it's cover" I was instantly drawn to the Title of this book. Oh and also the price!!!
Here is the description from the cover-
"Betrothed to the son of her Fathers Spanish friend, Mistress Deborah Stirling is taken captive by a roguish privateer. Nicholas, Marquis de Vere, has vowed vengeance on her future husband, and plans to use Deborah to lure the murderous Spaniard from his hiding place. Revenge was never so sweet--- or tempting....
At first furious, Deborah soon finds herself unable to resist her handsome captor's charms. Swept away by their passion, she cant help but fall in love. But what if it's a lie? Could it be part of Nicholas's revenge to seduce her, then be rid of her?"
Now when I read the cover I was intrigued, but when I read the book all I could say was WOW!!!
I am not one to read heavy romance books. You know the ones that you read and feel like you need to take a shower after!!! But this one is different. Don't get me wrong, there is sex, but not so much that there is no plot.
The story line was spectacular. It is set back in the time of Henry the 8th, and when Women are required to Marry at very young ages.
There is a lot of adventure, some fighting, lots of surprises, and a great love story!!
The cover tells you a very short summary. There is soooooo much more behind Deborah's "engagement" and to the reasons why Nicholas takes her captive.
I highly recommend giving this book a try. I read it four times!!!
