Tempting the Pirate by Tamara Hughes Review @entangledpub @tamhughes

Release date: January 12, 2015
Publisher: Entangled: Scandalous
Genre: Historical Romance

Charity Goswick thinks she is escaping an arranged marriage to a brute when she slips onto a ship unnoticed. Little does she realize that this is no honorable vessel of the King's Navy - it is a pirate ship. It's just a matter of time before she is discovered by a handsome rake of a pirate, who locks her in his cabin. And while she should be scared, her captor sparks the mostunladylike feelings within her... James Lamont is on the ship for one reason, and one reason only: to track down his brother. However, his spirited little stowaway certainly affords plenty of distraction with her many (failed) attempts to escape. And each time, the unspoken - and unbidden - passion between them grows stronger. But as violence and danger mount on the high seas, Charity will have to put all of her trust in the most untrustworthy of men... the arrogant pirate who just might steal her heart.

My Rating: 4 Roses

With thrilling action and sweet romance, Tempting the Pirate was a great historical romance. I really liked this book and I thought it was a lovely read.

Charity frustrated me at first. She was so set in her negative thinking against men that she became shrewish to James even though he was honestly trying to help and literally the only thing standing between her and being used as an unwilling whore by the entire crew. But, after a few chapters, her thinking started to change and I started to like her better. Over the course of the book, she became stronger and more fair-minded. By the end, I thought she was great.

James was wonderful. He was honorable, sweet, and determined to protect him loved ones. He even set forth on a pirate ship just to find his missing brother and that was just one example of the lengths he would go to take care of the people he cared about. I thought he was simply adorable.

The romance was slow going at first but, as Charity and James got to know each other, things moved much faster with them. Though it didn't seem like it at first, them were a well-matched couple and I thought they were great together.

The plot was well paced and kept me interested all the way though. There were some thrills along the way as James and Charity tried to survive among pirates. I really enjoyed the story and, though I wish we had found out what happened with James' brother, I liked the ending.

Tempting the Pirate was an enjoyable read and a really lovely historical romance. Romance lovers, this is a book worth checking out.
