I bought this book in a “Blind Date with a Book”. I didn’t know what to expect of it. After finishing it I discovered that it was the second book of a series that is about the Dante family. Each book tells us a romantic story with one family member as main character. This one talks about…
Juliet Dante is captain of “The Iron Rose”. She has earned the respect of her crew and of other privateers. She’s Simon Dante’s daughter, a very respected and feared privateer.
During one of her trips she attacks a big spanish ship saving the crew of an english little ship among which is the Duke Varian St. Clare, who will turn upside down Juliet’s world and vice versa.
I liked this book more than I expected because the historic part was very interesting and pirates have always been a topic that I like. The romance part is enemies to lovers and it was amusing but I didn’t love it. I thought it was because the characters didn’t convince me.
Juliet was overly hostile. She had to be strong but in my opinion she became mannish a lot and she was a very difficult person. Varian had to be very patient.
I hated Recalde. And I liked the Dantes as a family but I don’t know if I’ll read the other books. Nevertheless, I had good time reading this book.
If you like romance books with exciting scenes, some erotic parts and history, you can read this book.
I decided to put the author in Autoconclusive Novels because I don’t know if I’ll read the other books and because Juliet and Varian’s story is autoconclusive.
