Publisher's Summary

In national best-selling author Beverly Jenkins' Destiny series, the Yates men play hard and live hard. And when they find that special woman, they fall hard.

Noah Yates fully believes in the joys of a happy family and a good wife. But that's not the life for him. No, he would much rather sail the wild seas in search of adventure, not tied down. But then the unthinkable happens - he finds himself literally tied down. To a bed. By a woman.

And Pilar isn't just an ordinary woman. She's descended from pirates. And after giving him one of the worst nights of his life, she steals his ship! Now Noah is on the hunt, and he'll stop at nothing to find this extraordinary woman - and make her his.

Great story, generic lead female,

Let me start off by saying I am a fan of several of Beverly Jenkins books. I LOVE forbidden as well as destiny surrender. With that being said. The lead female in the story goes from extraordinary to another generic strong-willed bold personality female. What happened to the revolution? what happened to her wanting to make a difference be a change? what happened to Cuba? what I am appalled, angry, and disgusted with the family over is the ending of the book, and the treatment of Noah Yates as a victim of rape. I do not think the writer understand severity of broken trust between spouses when the wife shared such an intimate violation of her husband with his family. I do not feel that the husband should have been the only one apologizing when does treatment and misunderstanding. He was not a alpha male nor that he appear to represent the domineering personality of an alpha male. She had more compassion for the perpetrator that placed her husband in this scenario vs her husband. that killed and murdered my book reading experience. I can go on and on about this however that may be a personal blog post. Otherwise a great book.

Disappointing audiobook

I am a fan of Bevery Jenkins's work and of the Destiny series in particular. The narration of this book and Destiny's Surrender was very disappointing. They in no way compared to the narration of Destiny's Embrace. I will check all her audiobooks to see who narrates.

Love conquered all

Noah and Pilar's story was funny, adventurous, loving and serious. The story showed that love can conquer the darkness when bought out into the light. Noah story was heartbreaking but Polar handle it correctly.

I didn't give it five stars because I thought comparing the sister-in-laws to Pilar was unfair and biased. All in all I enjoyed all three stories.

Another great story to bring the lives of Yates boys to close. A must read if you have read Bokks 1and 2 of this series.

Trigger warning. Sensitive subject matter.

Great story. Loved every minute of it. For those who are easily triggered, there is a sensitive subject matter addressed in this story.

Destinys full circle

As always Jenkins delivers a well written love story. while i did enjoy the book it did not captivate me nearly as much as the first two books.
