THE PIRATE'S TEMPTING STOWAWAY (THE DUKES OF WAR #6) BY ERICA RIDLEY
Release Date: December 1, 2015
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!
REVIEW: THE PIRATE'S TEMPTING STOWAWAY (THE DUKES OF WAR #6) BY ERICA RIDLEY
The Pirate's Tempting Stowaway by Erica Ridley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The Pirate's Tempting Stowaway was a departure from the previous books within this series. It was the heroine Clara who needed to be rescued from all the pain and anger that was going on within her life. I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review. I was not as into Blackheart as I have been her previous male titular characters but the one thing that I did like about him is that he unwittingly helped Clara wake up to the things she was taking for granted and gave her a better appreciation for who she was. The Pirate's Stowaway is a story that I believe needed to be told. The negativity in life has a way of influences future choices. It also builds courage and the ability to show empathy to others. Empowering story.

The Brigadier's Runaway Bride by Erica Ridley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I liked Sarah. What I enjoyed the most about her was that she despite having the rug pull out from under her feet numerous ties she refused to allow others to dictate her life. She was a character that was full of surprises and that is what grabbed and held my attention. The anatomy of a great story at least for me is that it is engaging and hard to walk away from. This was those two things and more. I received a copy of The Brigadier's Runaway Bride in exchange for an honest review.
