Passionate, action-packed Regency romance by RT Reviewer’s Choice award-winning author Shana Galen features the swashbuckling Sebastien Harcourt, Marquis de Valere, and the nautical genius heroine destined to best him. After escaping France on a privateer’s ship, Sebastian becomes the notorious privateer Captain Cutlass. His reputation as a rogue precedes him and he’s undefeated in battle, until he crosses swords with the beautiful daughter of a British admiral. Raven Russell is out for revenge, but now she’s not so sure she wants the dashing captain to change his wicked ways.
It's been over a year since Shana Galen wrote the second book but Rogue Pirate's Bride was worth the wait. The author quickly takes us back to the family we came to love in this series. It was refreshing to read a historical novel like this where the heroine is a strong woman in her own right and the action happens right from the start. It was interesting to see the two sides, the navy and the pirates play out as we explore these two worlds.
I would have liked to see more interaction with his family but the book was already quite long. I have to give 4.5 stars because this one of the best historical books I've read this year and it was worth the wait.
