Publisher's Summary

The bravest of heroes. The brashest of rebels. The boldest of lovers. These are the men who risk their hearts and their souls - for the passionate women who dare to love them....

He is known only as The Rook. A man with no name, no past, no memories. He awakens in a mass grave, a magnificent dragon tattoo on his muscled forearm the sole clue to his mysterious origins. His only hope for survival - and salvation - lies in the deep, fiery eyes of the beautiful stranger who finds him. Who nurses him back to health. And who calms the restless demons in his soul.... 

A legendary love

Lorelai will never forget the night she rescued the broken dark angel in the woods, a devilishly handsome man who haunts her dreams to this day. Crippled as a child, she devoted herself to healing the poor tortured man. And when he left, he took a piece of her heart with him. 

Now, after all these years, The Rook has returned. Like a phantom, he sweeps back into her life and avenges those who wronged her. But can she trust a man who's been branded a rebel, a thief, and a killer? And can she trust herself to resist him when he takes her in his arms?

Tough Love

Kerrigan Byrne has written a novel that is so believable and emotional I could not put it down. The language is a little rough, but in order to demonstrate a gruff background of the hero it is necessary. I started reading this series years ago, and had forgotten some of the characters that ended up being key to Ashes story, my amnesia, so as he remembered so did I. This was the best of the series. I went back to see how I had rated the others, I also gave them 5 star ratings.

The book cover does not reflect how I see the characters in my mind, so don't expect a clean cut fellow with a seductive heroine. Ashe would be a tattoo covered man with scars physically and mentally embedded in his demeanor. Lorelai also has her own scars and the two heal each other through the story. This book contains all the elements to keep you reading, love, hate, anger, suspense, sex and intrigue.

The icing on the cake was Derek Perkins narration. He is my absolute favorite narrator. He made every character come to life with the raw emotion intended. I go out of my way to listen to books he reads and I am never disappointed. Although, I don't think it is necessary for you to read the previous books in this series to enjoy book 6, you will appreciate the ending more fully if you have. As I said before, I have given the entire series a 5 star rating. Kerrigan and Perkins are a grand slam!

Page turner!!

Do not start this book before going to bed, you WILL be up all night reading! The Rook the pirate introduced at the end of "The Scot Beds his Wife", has come back after 20 years to reclaim his childhood love and saviour Lorelei.
"Ash, had promised to return to her 20 years ago, but disappeared. In those years he had become a dark and broken man! But Lorelei will do what it takes to find the boy she loved!!
So many secrets revealed in this book!! IT IS WORTH 2 Credits.

Another Stellar Read From Ms Byrne!!

Another incredible book from Kerrigan and Derek! I listened to it in 1 day as I couldn't stop listening. The dark, tortured soul of Kerrigan's heroes emerges again as the Rook (Ash) has his own story with his beloved Lorelai. If I wrote anymore it would give away the mystery and the secrets revealed at the end.

It's totally worth the wait and the credit. You must get this one but you need to read/hear Book 1, The Highlander to set the story.

I love Derek Perkins!!

Wild Ride!

Holy Morley! This book starts with a bang and never lets up, not even until the end. So many questions from previous books in the series get answered. Old beloved friends make cameos, with every detail is so beautifully woven into the story and interlaced perfectly with previous books in the series, it causes one's mind to run a movie.. I can't say this is the best book in the series, because they are all good, but it's darn close. So much heart. So much action. So much love. So much redemption. So perfect. Derek Perkins is magnificent, as always, especially with accents.

Note to Miss Byrne: I'd like to see Inspector Morley get some love too. ;0)

Best of the Best

What can I say. I absolutely love Kerrigan Byrne and Derek Perkins. The two are like spun gold. I only wish they would put out more books. I love how a lot of the past characters came in to play in this one. We finally find out who the Rook really is. I think Kerrigan is the most incredible author to ever grace paper. She’s got more talent in her little finger than most authors that have best sellers. Please give this series a try. You WONT be disappointed. Thank you Kerrigan for your talent and thank you Derek for your incredible acting and voice distinctions. Your truly the best. Now please PLEASE please more from both of you!!!!!!

Entertaining

Enjoyed listening to this being read to me. I have had eye surgery and only can use one eye until I have second surgery, so audio has helped a lot but not all books are worth it.
This book was!!

Miss Kerrigan needs her mouth washed out

with soap. I understand they are pirates, but I think she enjoyed the overly foul language TOO much. It really does detract from the story, unfortunately.
