Within A Captain's Power

Pirates are always romantic. And I have been given the chance to review the historical romance Within a Captain's Power. Keep reading to learn about the book, and what I think about it.

Genre: Historical Romance

Never underestimate the power of a pirate . . .

Captain James Steele is duty bound to capture the privateer Scarlet Night and bring her rebellious crew to England to hang. Then he will leave his majesty’s service, make an upstanding marriage, and join the landed gentry. But the winds of fate are blowing the straitlaced commander utterly off course.

Once aboard, James comes face to face with a pirate boy who is in reality fierce, desperate—and gorgeous—Samantha Christian, on the run from a sadistic Virginia plantation owner. With her identity unbound, the good captain dutifully takes her under his personal command, whereupon decorum goes out the porthole. But while his heart is lost to Samantha by the time they reach England, her noose still awaits. Now James’s sense of duty will be severely tested. As for Samantha, she has a plan, and a duty, of her own . . .

What I Think

This is a fun historical romance. I love stories about pirates, and I really like that the heroine Samantha is the pirate. It is a great twist. It shows that the author knows how to develop a unique storyline. Samantha is strong, and she knows what she wants out of life. And that is not to be in a marriage where she is not treated with respect. I like that about her. And the author does a good job of showing the attitude of the pirate. Freedom above all else. So if you enjoy historical romances. Or if you just dream about being a pirate check out this book.

Lisa A. Olech is an artist/writer living in her dream house nestled among the lakes in New England. She loves getting lost in a steamy book, finding the perfect pair of sexy shoes, and hearing the laughter of her men. Being an estrogen island in a sea of testosterone makes her queen. She believes in ghosts, silver linings, the power of a man in a tuxedo, and happy endings.
