His Pirate by Stephanie Lake

Desperate to leave London and move his ailing sister to a climate that will save her life, Rhain Morgan books passage to their Caribbean plantation on the only available ship, one captained by Alastair Breckenridge. The alluring captain looks and acts like a pirate and Rhain fights his attraction, but the man’s fairness wins Rhain over. The trip started as endless becomes far too short.

For years, Alastair held people away from his heart, until Rhain. Finally admitting his feelings to himself, he tries to convince Rhain to stay on board, but it’s all in vain.

Despite his own burgeoning feelings for Alastair, Rhain wants to prove himself and refuses to let go of his dream of making a home for his sister and himself on their plantation. But when Alastair’s ship sails away, Rhain is left alone to make the best of disastrous circumstances. Overwhelmed by regret, he nurses his broken heart.

When all seems lost, they dare to hope for a second chance to set things right and love again.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

I have to confess that it was the Jack Sparrow look alike on the cover that got my attention, but the romance between Rhain and Alistair was a fun, sexy read. The premise is simple: Rhain and his sister book passage on Alistair’s ship as they travel to their family’s plantation in Dominica. Along the way, attraction grows between the sea captain and the gentleman.

This is fun story with more romance than swashbuckling. I enjoyed the historic details about Alastair’s ship and his crew and I also enjoyed the secondary relationship that develops between Rhain’s sister and Alistair’s first mate.

I’m not sure if some of the sex scenes are intentionally comical, but I found myself laughing out loud at a few brilliant descriptions. There are some very steamy scenes in this story and I thoroughly enjoyed the heat between Rhain and Alistair.

This book has a playful self-awareness. The story doesn’t win any plausibility prizes, but I thoroughly enjoyed Rhain and Alistair’s adventures as they cross the Atlantic on Alistair’s ship.
