I can’t get enough of pirate stories, from Johnny Depp as the more comic-relief style pirate to the new series Black Sails there is little to not like. Adventure, action, sexy bad boys and the freedom of sailing on the ocean. Sure, it wasn’t all glamor or fun, but the potential for plot twists and surprises is unending.
Mimi Sebastian manages to combine all of the intrigue of a good pirating story and still brings us a luscious romance that has two beautifully developed characters at its heart. With attention paid to historic elements that bring the feel of the time to the story, and the never-ending back and forth between the characters as they find and deal with their own attractions adds a human and realistic touch.
Sabine is clever, determined and so unlike the women of her day she was a breath of fresh air. While there were female captains of privateering ships, they often lost their ability or desire to live a more normal life. Sabine’s father, a notorious pirate, had made sure to see she had the ability to blend in society, as well as captain a ship. And, his life may depend on her proficiency at both.
Boone Wilder is an up and coming pirate, scrapping and scraping to make a name for himself. The adage honor among thieves is not in his lexicon, and his reputation for honest dealing, even among his own kind is not a good one.
When the two join forces, despite the great distrust between them, their physical attraction is palpable, even though they both will fight to deny their deeper feelings. From one high point to another the story speeds along to give lovers of adventure and romance a fun read that will entertain as each page turns.

Captain Boone Wilder leads a cadre of powerful and notorious pirates that rule the West Indies. He's survived the cutthroat's life, bearing the scars to prove it. Fearless, he seeks only the freedom of the seas and an enemy he's hunted with a vengeance for years. When Boone waylays a fat merchant vessel bound for Port Royal, he discovers more than he bargained for in the luscious bounty of Miss Sabine Tanner. But Miss Tanner hides more than tempting curves in her skirts. When Boone finds her sneaking about the Port Royal taverns, meeting with dubious captains, he's determined to learn what devious game she’s playing.
The daughter of a condemned pirate captain, Sabine Tanner took to the seas to clear her father’s name and locate her father’s legendary treasure. When her ship bound for Port Royal is boarded, she's captured by the sun-bronzed, muscular Captain Wilder. While the man is dangerously attractive, she knows from experience that Wilder is nothing but a scabrous bilge rat. Circumstances force her to sail with the scoundrel to find her father's ship, lost on the phantom Devil's Island. Driven by opposing agendas, will they survive the hidden truths, or does their greatest threat lie with each other?
