Audiobook review: 5/10
The Emerald flew across the seas, carrying the pirate Pagan -- despised by the ton, whose riches he plundered, and beloved by the poor, whose plight was eased by his gifts.
The Marquess of Cainewood vows to hunt down the pirate wretch in revenge for his brother's death. But when Jade, an enchanting vision of rippling red hair and eyes of jewel-green, appears at his door to beg desperately for his protection, the Marquess agrees to keep her safe from the villains who want her dead.
Jade is infuriating, exasperating, and gorgeous; Caine is noble, strong-willed, and powerful. No woman has ever befuddled him so, nor so deeply aroused his desire. But as Jade answers his knowing caresses with an innocent, wild abandon, they are drawn into a web of treachery that will test the very heart of their love!
Well, up untill this moment I didn't knew any Ms. Garwood work so this was a total surprise. Although it had too many political intrigues it become an enjoyable reading. Only after I started reading it I realised that this was a sequel to "The Lion's Lady".
Jade is an intelligent and independent woman who soon in her life began to look out for herself. So it was very funny to watch the way she handled with Caine.
Caine the Marquess of Cainwood is set out to avenge the death of his beloved brother, Colin. He tries to prepare a trap for the mysterious pirate, Pagan, whom is known to have killed Colin. And he'll continue to hate Pagan untill he finds out Pagan's real identity.
What Cane doesn't know is that his brother, Colin, it's dead. He's hidden untill it's found who really wanted to kill him and Jade's brother.This was a very enjoable listening. I was captivated by Jade and Caines's story. However, it was not very impressive book.
