This book was not what I expected.

I was expecting sexy pirates, seductions, steamy romance, sexy pirates, stolen kisses, swashbuckling rogues, and sexy pirates. Did I mention sexy pirates?

If that is what you are looking for, this is not the book for you.  It was Clean with a capital “Sea” ok thats it for the bad puns

But just because it was not what I was expecting does not mean it was bad.  I actually really enjoyed it!  Right on the cover it says its a “classic regency romance” and it was just that.  The romance was slow burn, with no annoying tropes (i.e. no love triangles and no insta love!)  It captured the classic regency setting yet the characters were still interesting!

The plot was engaging and I was never bored waiting to find out what happened next.  It kept me on the edge of my seat till the very end. It was a cute story that still gave me butterflies in my stomach even without physical romance.  Or maybe because there was no physical romance.  sometimes romances are so much more real when there is so much tension and propriety.

Overall it was a good cute clean romance, and it was an easy read.  I would suggest this if you like regency romances and aren’t expecting swashbuckling rouges.

  1. I love the tension with no physical romance!! I’m not a huge fan of the variations that add a lot of steamy sex scenes (… Now, I’m definitely not saying I won’t read them! 😉😆) but that’s just not how things would be back then! They had to work just to have permission to hold a ladies hand! This sounds great!… And I LOVE bad (amazing) puns. 💖
    Q:What’s the difference between a hungry pirate and a drunken pirate?
    A: One has a rumbling tummy, and the other’s a tumbling rummy.
