Aboard her privateering ship, The Seaflower, Captain Imena Leung is the law. Ashore, she answers only to her liege, Duke Maxime. They are a powerful couple, with an intense attraction neither can disguise nor deny. As a nobleman, Maxime is destined to wed strategically, so his seductive advances must be purely for pleasure. And what self-respecting pirate denies herself any pleasure?
Their delicious dalliance is prolonged when Imena is forced to abduct Maxime to thwart a political plot against him. At sea, with a stunningly virile man bound and held in her private quarters, Imena can imagine and enact any number of intoxicating scenarios.< /p>
The heat between captain and captive is matched only by the perils that beset The Seaflower and her crew. Violent storms, marauding corsairs, and life-or-death sex games on a desert island - how fortunate for the seemingly insatiable lovers that danger and desire go hand-in-hand!
Pretty typical book in this genre BUT the narration really lets it down. The narrator got it wrong with the accents which let the whole story down.

The narrator fell in and out of a totally inappropriate Australian/New Zealand accent without regard to the characters. The story is interesting - or was until I had to stop listening. I would give Janssen another try but not Pheobe Stewart.
