    Every woman should experience a grand pirate adventure at least once in her life For most of us, our swashbucklers will come to us on film, or better yet, in a book The book is better because you can go back again and again and reread your favorite tasty tidbits, and you can let your imagination run riot The Piratical Miss Ravenhurst , by Louise Allen, offers swaggering sea rogues, an undercover hero, and a most appealing heroine Clemence Ravenhurst is a well bred young lady and shipping he Every woman should experience a grand pirate adventure at least once in her life For most of us, our swashbucklers will come to us on film, or better yet, in a book The book is better because you can go back again and again and reread your favorite tasty tidbits, and you can let your imagination run riot The Piratical Miss Ravenhurst , by Louise Allen, offers swaggering sea rogues, an undercover hero, and a most appealing heroine Clemence Ravenhurst is a well bred young lady and shipping heiress who finds herself without protection and in dire peril after the death of her father In order to gain control of her estate and fortune, her dastard of an uncle tries to force her hand in marriage to an extremely odious cousin Her uncle s threats force Clemence to flee her home disguised as boy She fakes an apparent suicide and follows through on a plan to stow away on one of her family s ships Instead, she is captured by the gang of the notorious pirate Red Matthew McTiernan, whose nickname comes from his love of seeing red blood flow in his wake Clemence finds a savior in the ship s navigator, Nathan Stanier, who claims Clem as his cabin boy A friendship forms between Clem and Nathan, and Clem cannot understand why a man as obviously honorable as Nathan would throw in his lot with a band of marauding cutthroats Nathan finds himself with troubling thoughts of an attraction to the boy, Clem There are touches of exquisitely personal storytelling throughout this tale that uniquely belong to Clemence and Nathan I was charmed by Clemence s great open heart and by Nathan s hunkiness laced with a thread of humility Not cookie cutter characters, but definitely a sweetly sensual romance

    The characters are extremely flat, and the plot is almost entirely told instead of shown The most obvious example of the lacking plot and characters, to me, was the supposedly vicious pirate captain, Red Matthew McTiernan, who we are told is one of the most dangerous pirates in that part of the world The most dangerous things he does prior to a life or death battle with the Navy, however, is order a crew member flogged 50 lashes for almost causing McTiernan injury or death through a mistake a The characters are extremely flat, and the plot is almost entirely told instead of shown The most obvious example of the lacking plot and characters, to me, was the supposedly vicious pirate captain, Red Matthew McTiernan, who we are told is one of the most dangerous pirates in that part of the world The most dangerous things he does prior to a life or death battle with the Navy, however, is order a crew member flogged 50 lashes for almost causing McTiernan injury or death through a mistake and indeed causing serious injury to another crew member He also shoved our protagonist into a bulkhead after catching her somewhere she was forbidden to be, the big scary menace And that is literally all he is shown to do We don t even know for sure if the crew member died from those 50 lashes It is assumed but occurs entirely off screen with no evidence remaining after the fact This complete lack of evidence of a threat meant that there was no tension in the story at all, rendering it genuinely boring to read I absolutely do NOT recommend this book to anyone

    After her fathers death the heroine Clemance is being looked after by her uncle Only he s not so much looking after hertrying to force her to marry his son in order to get his nasty hands on her inheritance Knowing she is in a desperate situation Clemance decides to escape hoping to stow away on a ship scheduled to sail to England the next day However this doesn t go to plan when, disguised as a boy, she arrives at the dock to find the ship has left early and is then kidnapped by an inf After her fathers death the heroine Clemance is being looked after by her uncle Only he s not so much looking after hertrying to force her to marry his son in order to get his nasty hands on her inheritance Knowing she is in a desperate situation Clemance decides to escape hoping to stow away on a ship scheduled to sail to England the next day However this doesn t go to plan when, disguised as a boy, she arrives at the dock to find the ship has left early and is then kidnapped by an infamous pirate Clemance is put to work as the cabin boy for the pirate ship s new navigator, the hero Nathan Nathan is actually an undercover Navy officer in charge of, hopefully, leading the pirates into a trap When Nathan finds out Clemance is a girl he vows to protect her, but they both find they are attracted to one another Clemance knows that her reputation will be ruined due to the time she has spent in the company of pirates but takes comfort in knowing that her powerful family will be able to shelter her, something she keeps a secret from Nathan.So, if we take everything but the relationship between Nathan and Clemance away then I will say I really enjoyed the book Unfortunately the rest of it was not so enjoyable for me As a person I m not really into history as a form of entertainment I don t like period dramas, films, TV shows, books like Pride and Prejudice etc That s just they way I m drawn, I live very much in the now and like to read about it too However if we ignore me and my likes for a moment, I can unequivocally say that if you do like these things then you will absolutely love this book The characters were both good, although Nathan was a bit frustrating with his issues regarding their relationship I liked Clemance, she was quite fun, if a bit naive but managed to mature as the story progressed The surroundings and situations were fantastically written, even if I was having to look up certain things on the Internet every through sentences to find out what they are my husband seemed to know most of these already, which I have concluded means he was a pirate in a past life and that I really should have paidattention in history lessons at school.While the theme genre is not my thing this is a wonderful love story, and definitely a must read for all the Historical fans out there.Originally posted at

    I chose to read this book this week as my kids and I are studying Jamaica here at home, and part of the story takes place in Jamaica I liked only a couple aspects of this book and those were that 1 Clemence, the heroine, is a very strong and independent young woman, and 2 The story is much different than many other romances of this time period She finds herself as a cabin boy on a pirate ship with a undercover naval officer after escaping from her abusive and criminal island relatives who st I chose to read this book this week as my kids and I are studying Jamaica here at home, and part of the story takes place in Jamaica I liked only a couple aspects of this book and those were that 1 Clemence, the heroine, is a very strong and independent young woman, and 2 The story is much different than many other romances of this time period She finds herself as a cabin boy on a pirate ship with a undercover naval officer after escaping from her abusive and criminal island relatives who steal her inheritance, hold her prisoner and threaten to rape her As someone who is 30 years senior of the heroine and married, I found the whole virgin story line a bit tiresome The only lovemaking scene besides the kissing scenes in which she finally loses her virginity was extremely tepid My thoughts were, I waited for the whole story for THIS This author knows NOTHING about how to write a passionate lovemaking scene I would have given the story a higher rating if this scene had beenappealing But the story might appeal to readers who are still virgins themselves
