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.

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…
