Pleasuring the Pirate: Leisure Historical Romance | [Emily Bryan]

Pleasuring the Pirate: Leisure Historical Romance

All it took was a flick of the wrist. A deft touch of his sword point and Drake the Dragon bared her bound breasts. Then with the heat of his hands along her skin, he bared her soul. All the wantonness Jacquelyn had denied herself as a famous courtesan's daughter, all the desire she'd held in her heart while running Lord Gabriel Drake's estate flooded through her at his touch. Not that she could let a bloody pirate know it. Gabriel may have left his seafaring days behind, but his urge to plunder was stronger than ever.

Publisher's Summary

All it took was a flick of the wrist. A deft touch of his sword point and Drake the Dragon bared her bound breasts. Then with the heat of his hands along her skin, he bared her soul. All the wantonness Jacquelyn had denied herself as a famous courtesan's daughter, all the desire she'd held in her heart while running Lord Gabriel Drake's estate flooded through her at his touch. Not that she could let a bloody pirate know it.

Gabriel may have left his seafaring days behind, but his urge to plunder was stronger than ever. Especially if it involved full, ripe lips and a warm, soft body. Unfortunately, he needed Jacquelyn's help, not her maidenhead, to learn how to behave properly toward a lady so he could marry and produce an heir. Yet Mistress Jack was the only woman he wanted, no matter what her heritage. And everyone knows what a pirate wants, a pirate takes....

    "Little slow"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Reading is always well spent, but wont read/hear it again. The narrator is ok, but no accents... I need british or scottish or irish for my pirates!


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I think better for contemporary or westerns


    Could you see Pleasuring the Pirate being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I recommend many others before this one... not enough pirate in this book.

    Story
    "Wow, was I ever disappointed."
    What did you like best about Pleasuring the Pirate? What did you like least?

    I liked that it was a good old fashioned bodice ripper, just like the title suggests. What I didn't like was the performance. All the mispronounced words, the inconsistency of pronunciation and the fact that I couldn't tell one character from the other. Some of the characters spoke in dialect, and those particularly sounded uninspired and passionless. Really, if it's going to take place in olden days of England then use an accent, or hire one.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked Jack a lot. She's spunky, but oh so human.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Megan Kelly’s performances?

    Nope.

    Story
    "Could not get past the reader."

    I am sure the story was a good story, but having listened to many different narrators by this time, I certainly have my favorites. I just could not get by this narrator's monotone and lack of inflection which ruined the story for me. I skipped ahead just to get the "gist" of the story because it was too painful to listen to.

    "Good Story Bad Narrator"

    The narration was awful. The narrator couldn't quite get a Cornish accent so settled on a bit of a cajun one for some of it but gave up.. She should have given up all together on the accents, it would have been tolerable then.

    The story however was good. I will be looking for more books from this author as long as they get a different narrator.

    Story
    "Very fun book and listening"
    If you could sum up Pleasuring the Pirate in three words, what would they be?

    Fun Sexy Romp


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Pleasuring the Pirate?

    When said pirate found out he couldn't trust his 5 nieces not to roast him alive.....very funny...and Daisy is my favorite as well...what a charming little heathen.


    Have you listened to any of Megan Kelly’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Not yet but I will watch for her in the future


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes but it took a couple of days to get it done

    Story
    "Really bad narration"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    While the narrator (Megan Kelly) has a pleasant voice, her mispronunciation of many words, was difficult to listen to. She sounds uneducated. I might be able to understand mispronouncing solar and chatelaine, but calling the Thames the "Tames" (hard a) was bad enough. The one that made me cringe was viscount, which she pronounced viz count.

    I did enjoy the story, but if this author doesn't get a different narrator, I won't be buying it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was very fanciful, with a feel-good ending.


    How could the performance have been better?

    An educated narrator.

    Story
    "A pleasure to read"
    Would you listen to Pleasuring the Pirate again? Why?

    It was easy to listen to...a very pleasing narrators voice made what could have been slightly boring much more interesting.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Stories set in different cultures always make for intersting reads. The descriptions of the geography were very well written and performed.


    What about Megan Kelly’s performance did you like?

    The fluctuations of her voice kept the story from being too melodramatic and brought candor to the characters.

    Story
    "Pleasuring the pirate"
    What would have made Pleasuring the Pirate better?

    I would have preferred an english narrator as the prounciation of some words were wrong. I'm used to River Thames being pronounced without the "h" i,e, Tames, but appart from that it was well told


    Would you recommend Pleasuring the Pirate to your friends? Why or why not?

    Nice little story, not too deep, the good guys and the bad guys are well drawn


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    would have prefered and English narrator


    What character would you cut from Pleasuring the Pirate?

    none


    Any additional comments?

    nice romance, good triumps over evil.
