Review: His Pirate Seductress (Love on the High Seas #3) by Tamara Hughes
With her son's life in the balance, Catherine Fry is forced to locate and steal the priceless Ruby Cross of the Knights Templar. She knows who has it—it's just a matter of coercing Thomas Glanville, the handsome and incredibly stubborn captain of the ship she’s captured, into telling her the exact location. Fortunately, Catherine knows that there are many ways to get a man to talk...
Captain Thomas Glanville has the cross and he'll be damned if he's going to hand it over now that he finally has the means to buy a ship of his own. He's at the mercy of a fiery woman who will stop at nothing to achieve her goal. But Catherine has no idea who she's dealing with—and Thomas has his own means of charming a woman into his mercy and his bed...
I've always admired Hughes work and this book was also really good. This book has lot of action, thrill and adventure in addition to a female pirate and a handsome Captain. It is quite good historical fiction. I enjoyed reading it and would like to recommend it to all historical romance lovers. Catherine is a pirate or at least she is for the time being. In order to save her family she needs something very valuable. To be able to get the cross from Captain Thomas she must lead a pirate ship. So here she is, fighting like a pirate. She captures Thomas and now all she needs is to retrieve the cross and be on her way to London. But things doesn't go as planned. Thomas refuses to give up the cross. Apparently he values it far more than Catherine has anticipated. She must torture him and make him give away its hiding place... Thomas never thought that he'd be captured and tortured by a female pirate. She is definitely fierce and determined. But his future depends all selling the cross and he is not about to give it up so easily. soon he finds out why Catherine needs it so badly and now he is willing to help her so that they can both get what they want... The only problem is that he might not be able to keep his heart intact as he finds himself attracted to this pirate lady...
