Charity Goswick refuses to be wed to a man she finds distasteful.  She decides to take her own future into own her hands and runs away.  She finds herself hidden away on a ship.  What she doesn’t realize is that the ship she planned her escape on is a pirate’s ship.

James Lamont’s brother is missing and he knows it is up to him to locate him.  His search leads him to a pirate’s ship.  He manages to gain employment on the vessel.  He hopes that he will be able to find out clues that will lead him to his  brother.  What he didn’t anticipate is finding a stowaway on board.  When he finds Charity, he knows he is her best bet for survival on board.

Together the two will travel the high seas.  Charity refuses to listen to James reason that she must stay hidden in his cabin.  She makes it a game to try and escape, each time her plans are hampered by James’s interference.

When danger threatens them both, will they both be strong enough to survive?  Can Charity find trust in James long enough to allow him to figure out the best plan needed to escape the harsh conditions of the sea?

TEMPTING THE PIRATE is a wonderful high seas adventure.  Tamara Hughes has done an outstanding job in her creation of this swashbuckling romance.  Her writing skill is the perfect addition to the historical gene romance category.  I look forward to seeing more of her work in future books to be published.

When Hortense arrives at the manor, she is introduced to the Baron.  When he reveals his scars, she does not let them put her off for in his eyes she finds a man in search of someone to share his life with.  She is shocked when she learns he knows of her sultry past, for it was one of the things that intrigued him enough to hire her.

Hortense refuses to allow any man to have control of her life and future.  When Simon strikes a bargain to offer her a high sum of money, and excellent references in exchange for one night of passion she reluctantly agrees.

That night turns into one that she knows she will never forget.  For the beast’s gentle touch awakens feelings she never knew she possessed.   When day light comes will she be able to walk away from the first feelings of love she has ever encountered?
