Rating: 4 Cups
Lark La Beau has only had one love and he disappeared years ago. He left her, promising to come back but instead he left her his riverboat and his son…whom he has never met.
Captain Valcour Curry felt as if he was hit with a ton of bricks when he laid eyes on the beautiful Lark. She kept asking him not to go on the last mission and he would come to regret not listening to her dire warning.
Lark has tried to leave her love of the sexy captain behind, but each time she sees her son, she sees him. Determined to get over Valcour, Lark continues to work her magic as the reigning queen of the riverboats and voodoo priestess. But when a man from her past comes forward and tells her Valcour is in danger, she drops everything to rescue him. Finding him under the spell of a powerful magician is only the beginning of her problems…as she will have to figure out a way to break the spell to set him and the other prisoners free before the evil magician returns.
I have never read a tale quite like this one. Katalina Leon takes the reader on a magical and powerful journey as we watch Lark struggle to save the man she has always loved. The way the storyline flashed between their present and past helped me understand the feelings and emotions each character experienced. The way Lark grew within the novel was amazing as her confidence built while trying to figure out how to save the man she loves against a magic she has never dealt with before. Valcour himself leaves quite the impression too. I would love nothing more than to have a pirate to call my own if he were molded after this sexy captain.
Caution: This tale contains scenes of a swashbuckling pirate that will seduce you right out of your pantaloons, a deadly adversary who can will you to do anything and a voodoo priestess determined to claim her man! Oh yeah…and do not forget the extremely steamy sex that leaves you craving a pirate’s touch of your own.
