    1. Exciting Story of Love Among the Smugglers of Rye with Pirates, Sea Captains and a Wonderful HeroineSet in 1810, this exciting story is rich in history of the Napoleonic era and the smugglers that made Rye, England famous It s also the story of Tess Leighton, impoverished by her father s debts, who becomes the leader of the Rye smugglers to feed the people and take care of her ancestral home, which is falling down around her.By night, she runs a dangerous game, one step ahead of the government a [...]

    2. I can t read this An old school romance which, unfortunately, shows its age.I can t get through the you know you want it you know you ll love it attitude of the male in the story while he pushes himself on the woman She says some of the stupidest dialogue calling the guy a blackguard That took me out of the story faster than an earthquake.And as for him, I ve read enough of his growling, his manhood and the ridiculous near seduction of the woman while she is half asleep Sorry bailed at page 70.

    3. This book was the fifth book i have ever read just for the pleasure of it But from the moment you start you cant let it down You fall instantly into the story and totally inlove with the characters I loved it so much I have actually read it than once.

    4. Just finished and there was a lot that I didn t like about this story It felt all over the place and it got worse as the story went on Here s a few questions that I came up throughout the story.1 What happened to Tess to give her nightmares 2 How did Dane learn all he did I wanted some from his view and his story during all of this.3.Who was that old lady on the island any relation also who was that pregnant woman that was mentioned There are probably but so much is going through my mind I can [...]

    5. I decided not to finish this book I don t normally do that, but it was so far fetched I decided not to waste of my time.

    6. Note by the author that this book was Published by Dell in 1991 as THE BLACK ROSE This ebook edition has been extensively revised to better reflect the author s original vision Since I have never read the original book, The Black Rose, I do wonder if some parts of Seven Nights with a Pirate might have been easily understood had I read the original work As I was reading, I couldn t help but feel as though I was missing out on vital parts of the story.Background Viscount Ravenhurst was a naval he [...]

    7. Seven Nights With A PirateLove and adventure always keeps the reader entertained The hero and heroin are perfect for each other Tess is headstrong and brave smuggling to make her way alone Then Dane com s back from war with Napoleon and spying still for the Government His mission was to stop the transfer of gold by an English traitor and to stop the Romney Fox from her smuggling of brandy and silks He believes the Fox to be a man and the traitor he is seeking.

    8. I was hoping for a revival from Christina Skye my high hopes were quickly dashed with Defiant Captive , and my hopes were answered and still denied this was quite rare with this novel choked full of mysterious settings, equipped with characters who are not what they appear Dane AKA Viscount Ravehurst is on the surface, your typical brooding alpha hero But we soon learn that upon his return from a war, he lost both parents and his fiancee if that doesn t make you sad, the reason he and the heroin [...]

    9. A tough, sexy, but vulnerable hero that needs to learn to trust again blended with a pirate s adventures upon a moonlit sea is the perfect match for spirited Tess Leighton Determined to resolve her father s debt issues, Tess begins her secret other life during the shadows of the night A spy and a pirate are destined to clash, and despite fiery passion that soars between them, betrayal and suspicion loom on the horizon The stakes are high as Tess stands to lose everything, including her heart, if [...]

    10. The book was alright but I didn t understand why both characters hate each other so much Both characters had a previous history I think the time spam was 5 years where they were in love and they loved each other a lot However, they didn t go further because the male character Dane saw the female character Tess with another man Tess is a poor aristocrat and she is involve in contraband in order to keep her home I didn t like the way both characters treat each other, I mean it was cruel and Dane w [...]

    11. I had a really hard time with this book I fully admit I actually didn t read the whole thing, I skimmed a lot of sections I just couldn t seem to get into the characters.The plot line was fantastic but it was hard to believe a man who hates woman as much as Dane St Pierre does did could ever be anything other than a massive jerk I think it would have been easier to get through and finish if his hatred had been turned down to a understandable margin.I love Christina Skye books but this one was a [...]

    12. This book is cheesy beyond all reason and I ve read a lot of cheesy romance novels in my short years But it s the fact that it is so cheesy that makes it so fun If you can suspend reality for a moment and just ride on the wave of cheese when you open the pages of this book, you re likely to enjoy it It has clich s than 10 young adult novel series put together I guess you could say it s one of my guilty pleasures.

    13. I didn t really liked this book.The book ended without explanation about anything that happened 5 years ago it was as it had never happened all the pain, betrayal and loneliness was just forgotten after it was mentioned all the time I wanted one day of rest with a nice book and now I feel like I ve ruined my day with this book.

    14. I was enthralled with this book from the beginning I loved the H and h and also the mystery involved It kept me up late to finish and I did not figure out the villain until the page before he was exposed Great read and highly recommended.

    15. I liked this book Mainly a historical romance but well written and a nice mystery action story Reminded me of Brenda Joyce s books the de warenne series.

    16. Bodice ripper novella Sometimes you just need a good read of some old fashion historical romance this one did the trick for awhile.

    17. This is such an erotic book, however it may be a difficult read for some due to it s many rape scenes and the romance between a woman and her abuser.
