Publisher's Summary

Captain Blackheart leads a simple life of roving the seas, wenching and treasure-hunting. He steers clear of romantic entanglements that could tie him to land. He shouldn't have any trouble keeping his hands off the gently-bred lady he's commissioned to abduct - except his cargo turns out to be feisty and passionate! She'd be a prize worth treasuring, if having her aboard didn't jeopardize everything.

Clara Halton thought the worst loss she could suffer was to be stripped of her family, stricken with consumption, and left to die alone. Then she meets Blackheart. Their attraction is ruinous...and irresistible. When he delivers her like so much plunder, his mission is over - but hers has just begun. She'll force him to acknowledge their connection, even if she must storm his ship to do it!

Ahoy He Mates

I enjoy these types of romance stories very much. Especially when there is a strong female character who knows her own mind. This book had me smiling and wondering what would happen next. Have a look. I think you will enjoy it as well.

5 Big Stars

I had the pleasure of being reintroduced to the feisty Clara from 'The Earl's Defiant Wallflower' and the rogue, Capt. Blackheart from 'The Major's Faux Fiancé' where they separately played supporting characters in each of those two earlier books.
I think, so far, this has been the best story in this series. I simply loved the games between them and their total trust of and their continuous support for each other. Both are very strong characters, yet quite different from each other.
Neither of them are that young that their decisions and actions might be considered irresponsible. They know what they are doing and they know exactly how to get what they want and enjoy adventures together.
This story is written so well that I would have been quite happy for it to carry on indefinitely. In fact, I think it would probably make a great TV series or full length movie.
Kudu's to Erica Ridley, the author and Stevie Zimmerman, our narrator, for a job well done!

Entertaining

I love pirate stories. A dashing captain; a shy maiden. Oh, wait, make that a not-so-shy widow. The captain's still dashing though.

A great little story in the series. Short but fun.

Production of the audiobook could have been better. It sounded a bit tinny.

Now on to the Duke's story.

Definitely the best in the series!

Any additional comments?

This is definitely the best book in the series. The pirate Blackheart (who we met previously in The Major's Faux Fiancée) is hired by the Earl of Carlisle (who we met in The Earl's Defiant Wallflower) to sail overseas and retrieve Clara Halton, the sickly mother of Carlisle's new wife Grace. Over the course of the rescue and the events that follow, Blackheart finds himself falling for Clara while Clara struggles to choose between adventuring with him or settling down with her daughter and son-in-law.

I enjoyed every bit of Clara's story and kind of wish it had been longer!

I received a free advance copy in exchange for an honest review.

Even Mother's Can find Love

Would you listen to The Pirate's Tempting Stowaway again? Why?

Definitely - this was a great story

Who was your favorite character and why?

Captain Blackheart (aka Gregory Steele) he tries to be bad but he is so good.

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

Yes - she does a great job with this entire series

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Blackheart finds Clara alone in her cabin after she had been abandoned by the whole toen because they though she had consumption

Any additional comments?

The best thing about this story is that it features an older couple (Clara is 39 and has a married daughter). Not only do they find a happily ever after but they have a great time doing it.

Highly recommend the series

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this tale of romance Clara and Captain Blackheart. The captain isn't as fearsome as his name suggests. His character comes across very well early in the story when he finds Clara ill and isolated at her home in America. He can be a little bit gruff but he proves to be quite gentlemanly, heroic and has a nice sense of humour. He takes good care of Clara who is very ill at the beginning of the story and he deposits her safely at her parent's doorstep as promised.
A reader unfamiliar with previous titles in the series might find Clara's reunion with her parents, after so many years apart, to be resolved at breakneck speed and without much elaboration. You really need to read her daughter, Grace's story, in 'The Earl's Defiant Wallflower,' to enjoy the complete picture.
The Pirate's Tempting Stowaway is a fast paced, humorous, romantic story that will take you away for a few delightfully escapist hours.
