“Ever f*cked a pirate?”

He was insufferable, deeply scarred, and frustratingly gorgeous, and he was the man who was blackmailing her into tying the knot.

Cora Harris has never had luck with men. Being the daughter of a ruthless crime boss tended to put a dent in any relationship, but she never imagined she’d get kidnapped in the dead of night by pirates. She sure as hell never imagined the asshole with the smoldering gaze would threaten everyone she loved if she didn’t become his wife.

Only Captain James Crow wants more than just her hand in holy matrimony. He wants her absolute submission. He wants her pain. He wants the one thing she’s never given anyone — her heart. But is he willing to give the daughter of his sworn enemy his in return?

“How easily his eyes could make her forget that he was her captor. Not her savior.”

But when the truth is revealed, can James keep Cora from the true evil in their midst? Can he win before his revenge cost him more than just his life? And how far will Cora go to free herself of the man who enchanted her, seduced her, and when she submitted, imprisoned her?

Vengeance and betrayal will either bring two warring families together or obliterate them all.

MY REVIEW

Airicka Phoenix is a new-to-me author and I'm so happy to have discovered her. This book was nothing short of amazing and I was captivated by James and Cora's story within its first pages. It was sensual, suspenseful and evocative. I never knew what was going to happen next and I enjoyed every moment of it.

James was a modern-day pirate. Really can't get sexier than that. After losing his entire family, he spent the last 15 years calling the open seas his home. He always intended to avenge their deaths and his target was De Marco. Cora was De Marco's daughter. Initially set up as a prisoner, the plot thickened as James seemingly had a change of heart. Those pesky things called feelings got in the way as James and Cora navigated their changed relationship.

There was plenty of action, drama, angst, sex, intrigue, deception, betrayal, shots fired, etc. and through it all I got to witness the burgeoning love that developed between these characters. This story was remarkably well-written, eloquent, compelling, and I was colored impressed by the way the author took it up a notch and threw in plenty of humor. If you're a fan of steamy and suspenseful reads, BLOOD SCRIPT should be added to your TBR today!
