Publisher's Summary

She was a pirate princess, as wild and untamable as the sea....

With her sunset hair and flashing mocha eyes, Cristabel Stew is a rare jewel for any man. But for Old Captain Whiskey, the most notorious pirate sea dog of the Caribbean, his daughter is more precious than the richest swag of gold and silk. When he brings back a proper English gent from his latest plunder, his plan for her future seems secure. The prized captive is none other than Magnus Titus Snow, Viscount of Camcen Hall, a blue-blood with wealth enough for a freebooter’s ransom. In a hasty ceremony, Captain Whiskey weds the unwilling nobleman to his spirited brigand lass, making her Lady Cristabel Snow - a true lady. 

But Cristable, too, has a scheme. Raised among cutthroats, she has vowed never to surrender to any man. She will sail back with her new spouse as far as London. Then she will bid him and her pirate life farewell, and seek her fortune as a free woman. But, in a moment’s breath, the dream is dashed. For her reluctant husband reveals a secret of his own, a surprising and scandalous truth that will turn her father’s heart as black as his sins...and draw her into the arms of a dangerously seductive man she will not, dare not, love.

Great Story

This is a very entertaining story. One of my favorites by Ms Layton and her creation: Magnus, is one of my favorite heroes. He embodies all of what I believe is best in a hero. I have read this book numerous times and enjoy it every time! However, listening to it, I did not enjoy. The narration is off and flat. There is hardly any character distinguishing. They all sound the same with an American accent! Listen to anything narrated by Laura Paton, Phyllida Nash, Cornelius Garret, and Rosalind Ashford and see the characters come alive. A good narrator is what keeps a listener interested in the story. Because of the narration, I was not interested even though this is one of my favorites!

A wonderful read

Although not a reader of romance novels, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Jeanne Simpson did a marvelous job taking the listener into the world of the book. I highly recommend it.
