5 stars for The Dangers of Loving a Rogue by @jeri_black #historicalromance #romance #bookreview



Title: The Dangers of Loving a Rogue

Author: Jeri Black

Genre: Historical Romance


Book Blurb:


If not for deplorable timing, Celia Breckenridge might have avoided a pirate attack. She’s grateful for her rescuer, truly, however the stubborn man is sailing in the wrong direction! Most alarming still? The silver-eyed rogue is devilishly attractive and Celia must keep reminding herself she’s betrothed to another.


Jackson Beaumont had a plan: sail to the Caribbean; find a hidden cache of emeralds; return to society a wealthy man. Alas, he arrives in Charles Town with marauding pirates, a disgruntled heiress, and a hurricane at his heels. Rescuing the lady from pirates posed little challenge - allowing her to return to her betrothed is proving far more difficult.


But Jack won’t return to England without his fortune, and when it comes to another man’s bride, he’s not above a little plundering himself.


My Review:


Time for another of Teddy's timely reviews! This time I got to go sailing away as I read. I have read lots of graphic novels about pirates and think those are so cool.


What is simply amazing about this book is how it's so original! I have never read a book like this one! Pirate Jack-son is just so fun. Celia is a woman ahead of her times.


There were probably very few 18th century women with the style and energy of Celia. The story takes the reader on a roller coaster of the seas.


The historical accuracy I am told was special. I read the notes to the book and have to agree. The tale of the hurricane is spot on and enthralling.


I really enjoyed this and can't wait to read the second book of this series. If you enjoy a steamy romance with pirates, then buy this book. If you are a fan of historical romance, then buy this book. If you want an original approach to writing a story, buy this book!
