Review 3: Love's Conqueror

Love’s Conqueror. Renee Hand. 2015. [May] Gypsy Publications. 374 Pages. [Source: Bostick Offer]

First sentence:  The wind whipped wildly, tearing at the sails, as the waves beat against the sides of the Fighting Spur, rocking the ship violently.

Premise/Plot: From the back cover.  Miranda Mayne, the daughter of a notorious pirate, spent most of her life in the hustle and bustle of London society, though her true love was always the sea. Promising her father she will stay away from the life that killed her mother, Miranda accepts the marriage proposal of a man she thinks she can trust—only to discover that his true intentions are to secretly capture her father. Trapped between loyalty and deceit, Miranda’s heart falls prey for her true match only to find that he is out of her reach. Will she lose everything she holds dear or can she save her father, find true love, and most of all—find herself before reality prevails?

My thoughts:  I love historical romances especially when they involve London balls and pirates!  This book was a slow start for me.  But by chapter 5 I was properly hooked and couldn’t wait to find out what was going to happen to the characters.  The book easily could have ended at chapter 23 but I am glad that it did not!  The final 2 chapters of this story were almost like a mini novel inside of the book.  If you like historical romances the I think you will enjoy this read just try to make it past the first 5 chapters and you won’t regret it.

Rating 8.5/10

Recommend:  Absolutely if you like pirates and adventure on the high seas, read this book!
