#WOTR24 #pirates #mystery – Scallywag by Sophie Stern

You won’t catch him spending the night.The Dread Pirate Stone takes no survivors. He’s ruthless. Fearless.He’s unstoppable, especially now that he’s so close to finding the Cat’s Eye – an emerald so big it will buy him a thousand ships. Or, in his case, pay off his debt to the man who’s been holding his sister hostage. Stone will do anything to get that damn rock. He’ll fight. He’ll pillage. He’ll even kill if he has to.Nothing can stand in his way, but then he finds a stowaway on his ship.Eleanor knows she’s nobody to write home about. She’s plain. Homely. A little boring. There’s nothing very special about her. She was training to be a teacher before she witnessed the murder of the town mayor. Now she’s on the run and the only person who can keep her safe is one the entire world has labeled a villain.Oh yes, she’s heard all about the Dread Pirate Stone, but the stories have missed a couple of important details. The legends don’t talk about how stunning his deep green eyes are. They don’t talk about his long, wavy locks. The stories all missed the part about his steely abs or the fact that just one look from him is enough to make her knees quiver.Nobody warned her about that.Nobody would warn her that she might start to care about the man who could throw her out to sea – but doesn’t.Soon their worlds are colliding in ways Eleanor never thought possible…And she doesn’t know if she’s going to make it out alive.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this book.

I have to admit I love a good Sophie book.  I love the worlds and the characters.  When I grabbed this book, it was to read on vacation.  I needed a shorter read for the drive.  It was the perfect book!

The book starts right away with major drama.  The dream pirate Smith is attaching her family boat.  Eleanor escaped with the cook.  He saved her and took her home to raise as his own with his wife.  They loved Eleanor with all they had.  When things go bad, Eleanor is on the run.  She joins a pirate ship to escape and hide.

Pirate Stone is taken by the beautiful and PURE woman.  He can’t say no to her and makes a very nice bargain for himself.  Eleanor agrees as she has zero other opportunities.  The first night with the two was a nice and delicious treat for more night ahead.

Stone is looking for his sister who was kidnapped by Pirate Smith.  When he finds a witch to help him, parts of Eleanor’s past sneak up on her and I was like WHOOOOO!  The twist of the book had my mouth wide open because you think you have part of it figured out and then NOPE you don’t!!

The story was a great read, and I would totally read more from them or even the crew members.

#WOTR21 #Audio #Review #Mermaids #Pirate #comedy – Tallulah’s Temptation: Sea Shenanigans Book One by Robyn Peterman

Tallulah's Temptation (Sea Shenanigans #1)

Pirate Doug

What in the Chicken of the Sea was I thinking to agree to this half arsed Otherworld Defense Agency mission?

I’m the most absurdly good looking Vampire Pirate of the High Seas. Being on the run for my life is very important work… and a freaking full time job. Defending Mermaids from some vicious Sea Hags is going to cut into my pilfering time.

Unacceptable.

Even though this is a very bad move on my part, I know I’ll eventually agree—too many bounties on my arse to refuse, and the thought of a certain Mermaid makes my roger quite jolly.

However, Tallulah, the leader of the Mystical Isle Pod of Mermaids, isn’t going to be happy to see me… at all. The horrible, sexy, breathtaking woman has been starring in my dreams for too many years to count. Sadly, just when my mind wanders to the really good nookie part, the dream ends with her lopping my Johnson off.

I just hope to Hell and back that the Sea Hags have some outstanding booty to steal. If I’m going to have to regrow my tallywhacker, the treasure had better damned well be worth it.

Tallulah
Running a tourist trap for humans in the Bermuda Triangle had sounded like a fine plan—until it wasn’t. With the Sea Hags gunning for our island and ruining our questionably successful business, I did what any desperate Mermaid would do. I called for backup.

Of course, getting help from the Otherworld Defense Agency is risky as they don’t usually deal with ocean creatures. Whatever. Desperate times call for crappy measures. Chances are they’ll send freaking Pirates. I hate Pirates…

Well, I hate one Pirate in particular.

Hopefully, it won’t be the one seafaring jackhole I despise more than any other. Pirate Doug would be an idiot to show his face here after what he’d done. Not only did the dumbass abscond with our treasure, the son-of-a-bitch took my heart with him as well.

I’ll tear his sorry ass to shreds if he so much as steps even one hairy toe on my island.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this audio book.

I queued up my audio books and I HAD NOTHING!!  *GASP*  I started scrolling through a list of attending authors from Writers on the River Author Event.  It’s been AGES since I read anything from Robyn annnd  I remember them being hysterical.  The audio price was $2 and I grabbed it.  2 hours of laughs…yes please.

This book starts with Pirate Doug.  His accent and stupidity…hello word of the day incorrectly used…had me chuckling a lot.  Then to find out his has been assigned to help Tallulah and her mermaid friends from some Seahags.  Again, I cracked up.  When Doug…excuse me PIRATE Doug begins to tell his history with Tallulah……I knew this was just what I needed.  I mean she was going to cut ff his *Wink* Jolly Roger.  I can’t stop giggling as I type this.

The story is an absolute over the top, hysterical rescue of Tallulah and her friends.  Uhm Ariel might have been my favorite but whatever.  LOL  I seriously will be grabbing the other stories and listening when I just need some stupid funny in my day.

Robyn writes because the people inside her head won’t leave her alone until she gives them life on paper. Her addictions include shoes (the expensive kind), Coke with extra ice in a styrofoam cup, and bejeweled reading glasses.
A former professional actress, she now lives in the south with her family and too many animals to count. Writing gives her a chance to have a job where working in her P.J.’s is acceptable.

A total riot! If you need a crazy pick me up, this is for you! I was in sort of a slump with the books I had been reading and I knew that one of Robyn Peterman’s books would cure that. I listened to this on audiobook and it was the best! Just listening to Pirate Doug, the most handsome vampire pirate ever, and to Tallulah, the beautiful mermaid that wants to chop off Pirate Doug’s jolly roger for stealing from her and taking her heart with him, was hysterical! These two have the best banter! The narrators were both incredible and perfect for this story. I literally laughed out loud so many times while listening to this story. Some of the situations that they got into it were just plain crazy. I just couldn’t get off of the crazy train. It’s ridiculously funny! I can only imagine the rest of the books in this series and how their stories will go. I’m ready for the next!

A Flawed Jewel (A Marsden Romance #1)

This is the old cover.  New Covers were unveiled March 30th.

Pieretta boards a ship, unaware that Thor is waiting to kidnap her for revenge against her grandfather. Will love intervene, altering both their courses?

Pieretta Carlyle experienced the loss of her father, leaving her alone in the world except for her grandpere, Comte Renard Dubois. The comte insists that she travel to France to live with him. Pieretta doesn’t want to leave Charleston and the only home she has ever known. Her grandpere is her guardian, and she must do what he says.

Thor has a score to settle, and Pieretta is the key to his revenge. He became a pirate unwillingly after his business partner tried to murder him. He must acquire Pieretta by any means necessary, and he doesn’t mind plundering a ship to obtain her.

When Pieretta and Thor meet, they are instantly attracted to each other against their better judgments. Pieretta is disgusted by the pirate’s actions. Thor knows what Pieretta believes, but proceeds with his plans anyway. She is only a tool to achieve vengeance. What happens will depend on Thor’s need for revenge and Pieretta’s ability to forgive him for his dastardly deeds.

I received this book from the author.

I love Historical stories and Dawn has some great stories!!

This story begins with Pia mourning the loss of her father and having to move from the USA to France.  She is not happy about leaving her family home but since she is a woman, she must go to her grandpere.  The story jumps in right away with lots of action.  Pia and her maid Tully are secluded in the deck of the ship when pirates attack.

Pia comes face to face with pirate Thor.  He is fierce and hot…wait not now Pia. She is so confused because of all the men to show interest in, a pirate is not the right one.  Not for her station on life annnd for her reputation.

Thor had plans for Pia.  She was the perfect revenge tool for him but once he sees her and her beauty, he is stuck stupid.  He soon has a change in plan because tossing her aside is no longer his objective.  Keeping her is!!

The story jumped right into the action of the kidnaping.  Thor and Pia are two peas in a pod.  They two are faced with feelings they should not be having yet can’t stop having.  When you find out why Thor has kidnapped Pia, you understand his motives but still wanna smack him in the head for “knowing what’s best for her”.  Sigh…
