If you like a good clean pirate story with LOTS of SIZZLE then you have got to read The Pirate Ruse by Marcia Lynn McClure. This definitely made my top favorites list! Our tale begins when Cristabel Albay finds herself abducted in the night and put aboard an English ship. That ship is attacked by The Screaming Witch, the pirate ship of the famous vicious pirate, Bully Booth. While his crew plunders the English ship, Bully Booth finds a treasure of his own...Cristabel Albay. As he's carrying her off to his ship, The Screaming Witch is attacked by The Merry Wench, the ship of the famous merciful pirate, Captain Navarrone the Blue Blade. He quickly rescues Cristabel by grabbing her and jumping into the sea. He tells her if she wishes to see another day she must swim to The Merry Wench. But is it truly a rescue if your rescuer is also a pirate?
I LOVED everything about this story. The characters were very well drawn. The dialog was superb! The story was engaging from beginning to end and impossible to put down! There was such a wonderful mix of emotions. I found myself laughing, worrying, nail biting and sighing. I truly felt like I was right there in the story. Captain Navarrone is an excellent hero and a wonderful match for the stubborn Cristabel Albay. I highly recommend The Pirate Ruse. You are in for a real treat. Great job Marcia!!!
I'm a mom to three grown boys, a daughter-in-love and wife of 30 years to a great guy. I love coffee and reading and reviewing books. I am what you might call a "bookaholic". (Even more than that...a Kindleholic!) I also love to shop the thrift stores for interesting treasures! I appreciate the authors I know and love but I also like finding new authors and making new author friends.
