The Pirates & Petticoats Series is about spunky heroines and the scoundrels who fall in love with them.

Synopsis:

An independent young lady meets a bold merchant captain pursued by a band of Caribbean pirates…what could possibly go wrong?

After a daring escape, Captain Landon Hart sails his ship to Charleston for repairs and to keep a mysterious appointment with a plantation owner. He meets a sword-wielding, fiery-haired temptress on the way, and he isn’t prepared for the impact she has on his tightly guarded heart…nor the trouble she manages to attract.

My Thoughts:

Although there was a formatting problem I did mostly like this story. I had to struggle through unusual and unnecessary punctuation. Copyright symbols and other characters that were placed in places where they weren’t needed. This problem I found out later had to do with formatting rather than editing.

I didn’t like the ending. The story ended in a cliffhanger. Instead of a story of it’s own you have to wait for the next book to find out what eventually happens to our hero and heroine.
Because of the formatting problem I gave this poignant story 3.75 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 2.5 of 5.0 flames.

The intimate scene between our hero and heroine is only a heavy petting one.

I hope the next book is soon ready so we will know our couple’s fate.

I received an uncorrected digital ARC of this book to read for review from the author/publisher. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Synopsis:

Keelan Grey is running away from marriage and Captain Landon Hart doesn’t know it yet, but she’s just been hired as the new cook’s helper on his ship. Until pirates kidnap her first. As usual, the fiery vixen ends up neck-deep in trouble, putting her on the pirates’ black list. To make matters worse, if Keelan’s wealthy husband-to-be finds out what Landon’s smuggling in the walls of his hold, all hell will break loose.

Keelan is forced to act a charade and soon her life depends on her acting the part. With the mystery of her true identity yet to be solved, she must rely both on her wits and skill with a blade to survive.

One thing is certain; the pirates suspect she’s aboard Landon’s ship, and it’s not long before their schooner is spotted on the horizon.

My Thoughts:

This is the second book in this serial type series. Unlike many series, this one needs to be read in order. Otherwise you just don’t get the necessary background and fail to enjoy it to it’s fullest.

I did read the first book although there were some problems with the formatting. This problem did not carry over to this book. I was able to read this one easily.
This book is well written and although we have another cliff hanger ending, this time I know there is more to come in the third and final book in this series.

It is not advisable to read this book as a standalone title as it is a saga that carries from book one through the third and final installment.

I gave this book 4.5 of 5 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 2.5 of 5.0 flames. There is only a hint of an intimate involvement although the cover is sexy the book doesn’t contain a great deal of intimacy.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this title from the Author/Publisher via NetGalley.
This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

About The Author:

15% of Chloe’s profits go to the NATIONAL BREAST CANCER FOUNDATION. A1roRQjtirL__SY600_

On average, over 80% of their funds go to programs that directly support women through every step of the breast cancer journey.

Whether it’s dancing naked in a downpour at 3AM, zip-lining in a rainforest, or racing ponies, Chloe’s always looking for the next adventure.
Her pets have always been named after favorite characters or action heroes: Indiana, Luke, Gimli, Thelma, Rocket, Forrest, Al Giordino, Severus, Mushu, Mérida, Gibbs, Jack…Dead Pool (he’s a goldfish).

Chloe’s biggest fault is her apparent inability to say “no” whether it’s in response to a call for aid or a double-dog-dare to hike home through 30 acres of a snow-covered forest at midnight…during a full moon. It was early morning during said adventure when she came upon a group of sheriff’s deputies searching for a lost girl. So, of course she offered to help. Turns out, they were searching for her.

In addition to her addiction to adrenaline, she has a weakness for good red wine, dark chocolate and brown-eyed guys with beards, which is probably why she digs pirates and treasure hunters and writes about action and adventure, pirates and romance (which is the greatest adventure of all).
