A Pirate's Love

Sailing westward toward the Caribbean sun, young Bettina Verlaine obediently sets out to fulfill the promise made by her father--but not by her heart -- a prearranged marriage destined not to be...once the notorious Captain Tristan's pirate ship appears on the horizon.

Abducted by the bold and handsome brigand, the pale-haired beauty surrenders her innocence in the warm caress of the tropical winds -- detesting her virile captor for enslaving her. . .yet loving him for the passionate spell he casts over fragile, yearning heart.


  • Poorly written

    By AUBeckyboo
    Couldn't get past chapter 2 because it was poorly written. Definitely not worth the time...
  • Worst Lindsey story by a mile!!

    I remember now why this was the only Lindsey novel I never read - because it's TERRIBLE. I must have read the first two chapters years ago and, after throwing the book down in disgust, promptly blocked the experience from memory. I'm not one to complain about the old bodice rippers and their storyline-cousins, but this is rape, rape, and more rape - with some "I know it is rape, but he's a nice guy otherwise, so I don't understand why you're mad at him" commentary from the motherly servant thrown in for good measure. If you are interested in what a Stockholm Syndrome romance plot line would be - this is it. And while I'm ranting... wouldn't a man who's mother was raped and murdered in front of him - a man who has dedicated his life to finding that man and killing him - probably have an aversion to rape himself?? Oh! And I just adore the trite inclusion of the "every stranger she meets attempts to rape her" plot device, too! (Massive eye roll!!!) All that said, this is the ONLY book she's written that is like this. I at least like, if not love, all her others. This is definitely the odd duck of the lot...
  • Great read!!

  • Pretty Good

    By EntertainmentLover
    When I began to read that she got kidnapped from a pirate, I was expecting a whole different story from what I read! Lol, but it was pretty good
  • Not the best from Johanna Lindey

    I kept thinking "Is she suffering from Stockholm's Syndrome?" Just my opinion though...
