Can a pirate learn that the only true treasure lies in a woman's heart?
Widowed Silence Hollingbrook is impoverished, lovely, and kind - and nine months ago she made a horrible mistake. She went to a river pirate for help in saving her husband, and in the process, made a bargain that cost her her marriage. That night wounded her so terribly that she hides in the foundling home she helps run with her brother. Except now that same river pirate is back... and he's asking for her help.
"Charming" Mickey O'Connor is the most ruthless river pirate in London. Devastatingly handsome and fearsomely intelligent, he clawed his way up through London's criminal underworld. Mickey has no use for tender emotions like compassion and love, and he sees people as pawns to be manipulated. And yet he's never been able to forget the naive captain's wife who came to him for help and spent one memorable night in his bed...talking.
When his bastard baby girl was dumped in his lap - her mother having died - Mickey couldn't resist the Machiavellian urge to leave the baby on Silence's doorstep. The baby would be hidden from his enemies, and he'd also bind Silence to him by her love for his daughter.

I thought I would be drawn into this book right away but the plot seems very similar to some of Lisa Kleypas' books. I only listened to about an hour or less. If I could return this book, I would. The reader seems excellent.
No. But that just because I don't read books more than once.
That Charming Mikey was a Pirate and not perfect.
She did a fantastic job.
I basically did. Minus the time I had to go to work on Monday. I started it on Sunday finished it on Monday night.
This whole series has been wonderful.
This series is amazing but number 3 was the best of the lot (so far). I listened to this book non stop, just could not tear myself away. I laughed, I cried and I fell in love.
It's one of the most enjoyable I've listened to
Just how the narattor gave mickie is accent =p
like I said, she does a wonderful job with the accent
It made me laugh out loud
Tell us about yourself!
I thought this book was very entertaining and I downloaded the rest of the series after this book. I wish I had started with the first book but I enjoyed it anyway.
The opening scene with the pirate king caught my attention right away.
I think she did a great job and was the perfect choice for this series.
Yes, but I always want to when I'm enjoying a book.
This is the best in the series thus far....looking forward to Winter's tale next.... I love the narrator as well. She does an excellent job on bringing the book to life!!!!
I bought this book because I enjoyed the other books in the series, although you could easily guess what was going to happen it was still a fun read.
This is much like other books by the author so if you enjoy her other works this is very similar.
I enjoyed this whole series, which surprised me for I am not a fan of historical romance novels. This had more meat and I really liked the era this was set in. The narrator was good for this type of story. Over all I am not sorry I got this series.
Please read this series in order. It is a delightful, funny, entertaining, sexy, romantic, suspenseful, read. This last book was my favorite of the series. I love when a writer can make one love and cheer for the bad guy. It is not easy to keep us historical romance novel readers enthralled, but you will be with this series. At least, it kept me listening late into the night. Great ending.
