Book Review | The Pirate's Redemption by USA Today Bestseller @RuthACasie #medivalromance #pirat

Title: The Pirate’s Redemption

Author: Ruth A. Casie

Genre: Medieval Romance, Pirate Romance

Book Blurb:

After her beloved father dies, Moira MacDougall becomes chieftain of their small clan. She is tested on every level, not only by her councilors who question her every move, but also by an exiled Englishman who raids her village under the guise of a notorious pirate, Gareth Talbot.

He wants the secret weapon Moira possesses, and will do anything to get his hands on it—including committing murder so he can give it to King Henry to prove his worthiness and be welcomed home.

Moira will follow her destiny and do whatever is necessary to protect her clan.

The real Gareth Talbot is through with love. His last romance did not end well. He suffered a broken heart and doesn’t trust women.

Humiliated, Gareth goes to sea and becomes a captain for MacAlpin, the pirate king. When raids along the Scottish coast are blamed on him, he seeks revenge. Nothing less than death will do.

Moira and Gareth are on different missions, but seek the same goal. Can they work together and eliminate their greatest enemy, and in the process, find the one thing they didn’t know they were searching for, true love?

My Review:

Can a pirate truly be redeemed? Gareth Talbot is a captain for the MacAlpin and for all appearances, loves being a pirate. But when word gets back to him that someone is raiding the Scottish coastline using his name, Gareth vows revenge. He meets the beautiful Moira MacDougall, newly appointed chieftain of her clan after her father’s death. Her spirit enlivens his stagnant heart and he helps her and her clan. When his enemy causes devastation and death among her clan using his own name, Gareth works with Moira to bring down the man responsible. Will Gareth give his heart to feisty Moira, something he swore he'd never do or will he abandon her for the pirate life on the seas?

The Pirate’s Redemption is a great pirate adventure with a full cast of colorful characters and intrigue. I connected with Moira immediately. It was fun to revisit Wesley from The Pirate’s Jewel and to see him so happy. Gareth is the classic anti-hero and one I had a hard time figuring out. He’s jaded, puts on a brash show but when he’s alone with his thoughts, craves what Wesley has found, love. The romance between Gareth and Moira is slow-burning and took awhile to get going. Moira’s dialect is one I haven’t come across before. An original pirate romance with plenty of intrigue, adventure on the high seas and redemption. A solid addition to the Pirates of Britannia Connected World series.

My Rating: 4.5 stars
