Can a pirate learn . . .

That the only true treasure . . .
Once Silence was willing to sacrifice anything to save the man she loved. Now a widow, she’s finally found peace when Charming Mickey comes storming back into her life with an offer she can’t refuse. But this time she won’t be the only one paying the price for his sins.
Lies in a woman’s heart?
When his past comes back to torment him, Mickey must keep Silence safe from a merciless enemy, while wrestling with the delicious hold this widow has on his heart. And in the face of mounting danger, both will have to surrender to something even more terrifying . . . true love.
MY RATING: 4/5 STARS
I received a complimentary copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
I was told by a good friend of mine that I would absolutely fall in love with Elizabeth Hoyt’s historical romances and of course, this beauty also know as book three in the Maiden Lane series because PIRATES. Now, I’m a big romance reader and one of the genres I adore is historical romance. And one of the big things I have about historical romance includes Pirates. My friend and I went into great lengths about discussing how pirates are just so hot because they’re demanding, rough around the edges, and always, always, ALWAYS, a whole lot sweeter than they seem. And I don’t know if it was a big thing in the 80s or 90s when cheesy romances BLEW UP but being kidnapped by a hot as hell pirate sounds sooooooo good. Even though in real life, it’s freaking awful, against the law, and would scare me a lot. But this is romance! This is fiction! And pirates are a big thing.
