Can Jack protect Mattie from the powerful magnate who will do whatever it takes to keep his crimes a secret?

Boston suffragist, Mattie Duncan is a willful, independent woman whose heart has always belonged to Jack Taylor, a local firefighter.

Not only can she make a difference saving lives, she can spend time with Jack, who is tasked with training her.

Jack has always been attracted to Mattie, but he doesn’t see a future with her. In Jack’s mind, she will always be tied to his late brother, who had loved her desperately. To make matters worse, Jack is also still racked with guilt over not being able to prevent his brother’s death.

Mattie overhears a conversation suggesting his brother was murdered. As Jack and Mattie work together to uncover the truth, their passions ignite. But even if Jack’s guilt is absolved, can he overcome the sense of betrayal toward his brother that’s keeping them apart?

The Reading Cafe
:“I loved everything there is about our sexy pirate in this one. From the moment he stepped onto the pages of this story he had me swooning at his feet (swoon pillows a must when reading this one).”
Talking Books: “The perfect protector with the perfect heroine.”
Romantic Historical Reviews: “I love a good pirate story and this one delivers on all counts: passion, derring do, drama, danger, and non-stop excitement.”

Tempting the Pirate cover 500Charity 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 most unladylike 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.

top pic logoNight Owl Reviews Top Pick: “Dashing pirates, beautiful damsels in distress (and sometimes causing the distress), and epic voyages fraught with danger, both natural and manmade. In a word, magical.”

Tangled Up in Books: “Beauty’s Curse was intense from start to finish. It starts out on a sinking ship and immediately had me on the edge of my seat and rarely let up on the intensity from there.”

His Pirate Seductress

Love on the High Seas series: Book 3

For The Love of Fictional Worlds: I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS AUTHOR’S STYLE OF WRITING – because this book has absolutely everything – a strong, freaking strong heroine who while she understands her limitations, is never set by them and a hero who is cocky, narcissistic yet somehow on a deeper level connects with the heroine.

Jenerated Reviews: “If you are looking for passion and rousing action His Pirate Seductress is a wonderful way to experience both at their best!”

Tangled Up In Books: “Tamara Hughes always does a fantastic job at making you feel as if you truly are on the high seas or sucked back in time. It’s fantastic.”

He’s at the mercy of a fiery woman who will stop at nothing to achieve her goal. But Catherine has no idea who she’s dealing with—and Thomas has his own means of charming a woman into his mercy and his bed…
