Amazon Reviews
5.0 out of 5 stars Swashbuckling sexiness!
on 6 September 2017 – Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I love a good romance, but I had never read a love story with a pirate for a hero before, but oh my… Samael’s rugged saltiness and swashbuckling ways had me breathless and biting my bottom lip! I’m ready to hit the high seas, myself!
The Lady and the Pirate was packed with adventure, dangerous battles and a tumultuous tale of fear of loss, and fear of love. It had a great background story, and as well as the hero being the epitome of raw masculinity, the heroine was strong and feisty!

5.0 out of 5 stars This book re-introduced me to the enjoyment of a fantasy romance
on 13 September 2017 – Published on
 This book re-introduced me to the enjoyment of a fantasy romance, with a good helping of the paranormal, though everything made perfect sense! The characters and situations are well-defined at the beginning, and this introduction was clear and fast-paced. The plot had twists and turns to keep the reader wondering about the final outcome, and this reader was not disappointed. The story line moves from piracy on the high seas, to noble estates, kingdoms, battles, long-lost relatives, and, of course, passionate love… as strongly suggested by the title.
As a fun, relaxing read, this fulfilled all the criteria!

The Lady and the Pirate (Wildecoast Saga#3), is an enjoyable escape into the world of swash-buckling pirates, smuggling, double lives and primal desire. Samael and Esta are both strong characters with a deep esoteric connection, making them seemingly destined for each other. But.. will they overcome their many trials, betrayals and fear of rejection to seize their chance at happiness?
An enjoyable read.

Reader Comments

@beautyandlace: ‘a lovely story of second chances, moving on and finding hope with the added bonus of hot lords and stunning mermaids.  Being a romance there is also steam and sizzle, and not a little tension.’

Princess Avenger Ebook coverPrincess Avenger – Brightcastle Saga Book 1- available now 


Princess Alecia Zialni is no ordinary noblewoman but a crusader for Brightcastle’s miserable subjects, disguising herself to exact revenge and minister to the poor. So it is irksome in the extreme when the dark and dangerous Captain Vard Anton rescues her from a mercenary she has attacked. Alecia manages to slip from his grasp only to discover he has been appointed her protector.

How is she to maintain her secret life with Vard watching her every move? More importantly, how can she safeguard her heart from this mesmerising man?

Vard knows he cannot remain Alecia’s protector and fulfil his mission to kill her father, Prince Zialni. Neither can he defend her when his control of his animal transformations is so tenuous.

Will the attraction that sizzles between the courageous princess and the daring captain be enough to overcome Vard’s obligation to his changeling heritage and Alecia’s duty to the Kingdom?

Comments from Readers of Princess Avenger:

Monique T.  I really enjoyed the book and became completely engrossed in the story.  I felt a connection with the characters and found myself being swept away with the emotion and passion pouring out of the pages.  I would read for chapters on end and forget where reality was, drawn into the life of the princess, feeling like I was right there next to her hiding in the dark alleyways.

Robyn A. Just letting you know what a great read that was.. Sat there wanting more when it was finished. So you will have to hurry and get book 2 written.

Kate R.  Fabulous job, I look forward to reading your next one.

Brooke T.  I couldn’t put it down!!! So hooked!!
