“Ever fucked 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.

I don’t know why I ever get surprised when I wanna-die-I-love-this-so-much love something of this author’s works. Airicka Phoenix is a talented author that knows how to suck you into her worlds, whether they’re dealing with paranormal hot teen guys (or were they in their twenties? Shit, I can’t remember) or crime lords that know how to get shit done… and keep their women.
God, this book is just-!!! I can’t even speak, it’s so amazing. I love how crazy Cora is with her upbringing and aggravating a pirate that could do anything to her if he wasn’t half the man he already is. James has had the shit end of life, going from being the richest man in the world to the poorest in a single night of treachery and heartbroken horror. Vengeance is the only thing that keeps him going, and when Cora suddenly comes into his plans, it’s a mess. Now he doesn’t know what to do, and if he doesn’t choose soon, he might just choose wrong, or end up losing both options.
When I was reading this, I had a hard time not crying because here’s Cora obviously liking the guy (well eventually) and he’s too stubborn to do anything about it. Like uggghhh!!! I was so sad when he’d retreat the second he suspected that she liked him. So this definitely has the angst and drama and deliciousness of romance/hotness. I also liked the drama going on between her family and him. Crime lords don’t usually do it for me but when Phoenix writes it, you bet your ass I’m on it. Cora’s dad is one scary dude, and the life she’s lived is pretty intense. At times it explained so much about the way she was, but I also seriously loved how much love there was between her and her parents despite the mild dysfunction that is their life.
The ending totally had me in tears for the last chapters, and I’m glad it turned out the way it did. This is a definite recommend, the book, the author, all of it. READ IT.
