Vengeance is a dish best served in bed...

London, 1812

After the deaths of his parents and a dark, troubled childhood, Captain Nate Bowen vowed he would have his revenge. But he never expected to have the tool of his revenge dropped so neatly into his lap. Juliana Hargate is not only the daughter of his enemy, but is destitute, very much alone—and exquisitely desirable.

And now that Nate has saved her life, she’s at his complete mercy...

Captive. All Juliana wanted was to clear her father’s name. Instead, she’s been struck with amnesia—unable to recall even her name—and imprisoned by a tall, imposing, and entirely unscrupulous pirate.A pirate whose eyes seem to look past her skirts and many petticoats, and whose touch sends delicious ripples of desire through her. With every passing day, she finds herself tempted to give him the very thing he’s determined to take...

My Rating: 5 Roses

A delightfully romantic read, Falling for the Pirate was a wonderful historical romance. It was sweet, enjoyable from start to finish, and I really liked it.

Juliana was a great heroine. She was loyal to those she loved and willing to do anything for them. And, she was strong enough to survive complete ruin and continue on. I thought she was lovely and I liked her.

Nate was wonderful. He was raised at the very bottom rung of society, but, rather than make him bitter, it made him determined to fight his way to the top and, once there, help as many people who were once in his situation that he could. He was sweet, kinder than he let on, and just adorable.

The romance was very sweet. Juliana and Nate were lovely together. I thought it was sweet how Nate was willing to do anything, even leave behind his plans for revenge, for the woman he loved. And, I appreciated that they didn't fall prey to petty misunderstandings and melodrama. Rather, they listened to and accepted each other as they were. I thought they were a perfect couple.

The plot went along quickly and I was hooked the entire way through. There were a few betrayals in store that I never saw coming. I really enjoyed the story and I loved the sweet ending.

Falling for the Pirate was an absolutely wonderful historical romance. I enjoyed every bit of it, from the sweet romance, to the unexpected twists. Romance lovers, this is a book you'll definitely want to check out.
