rkfall5 Stars Out Of 5The Pirate BrideSeptember 27, 2018rkfallThe Pirate Bride is book 2 in a series that I'm just loving! It is a series called The Daughters of the Mayflower and we are studying American History in school this year so the series title has caught my eye. I just love history. This was a story about adventures on the sea and some time spent on land. It involves twists and turns and time and love and pirates and even nuns. I enjoyed following all the developments that were involved and I find Kathleen's writing to be well executed. Can't wait to read the next one!
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Researching my family history of a shipping baron out of Alexandria, VA, I've always wondered what happened to his vast shipping interests: the American Revolution, privateers, pirates? Thus I enjoyed this particular historical fiction even though at times it seemed a stretch too far in believability. But isn't that why we read fiction betimes?
Susan Barrett3 Stars Out Of 5Not the best in it's genreJuly 25, 2018Susan BarrettQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 2Okay, Im just going to go ahead and give my honest thoughts here. This book seemed like it knew where it was trying to go, but not how to get there. I didnt think the transitions made sense, nor did I really like how it ended. The writing seemed amateurish and the plot skipped along like rocks on a pond, instead of smoothly like a sailboat. It was slow and then rushed and didnt seem natural. The idea was creative but the result choppy. It wasnt necessarily a bad book in terms of content, but there are better written pirate books out there (MaryLu Tyndall writes some really good ones).

E. Elizabeth4 Stars Out Of 5Review of The Pirate BrideJune 28, 2018E. ElizabethQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 3Aye, If ye be seeking adventure with pirates, privateers, and a feisty heroine, then The Pirate Bride by Kathleen YBarbo is the book you need to be reading! I have always loved tales of pirates and sword fights and adventures on the high seas so I was very excited to read this book. While not exactly the story I thought it would be, it still held my attention all the way to the end. While this book could stand alone, it was fun for me to know that the heroine, Maribel was related to Mary and William Lytton whose story takes place in the first book in the series. I loved how courageous and feisty, Maribel was and how tough yet kind Captain Beaumont was. They seemed like the perfect match. The one problem I had with the book was that at least half the book was just on Maribels younger life which seemed more like a young adult adventure novel than a romance. The last half advanced the story to over a decade later, and then the romance between the two happened very abruptly. I could have guessed the romance would happen, but it seemed like there needed to be more time for it to develop. However, in spite of the sudden romance, I still enjoyed the book and the adventure it took me on.
I would recommend this book for someone who enjoys reading books about pirates. It is a fun continuation of the family tree that starts in the first book in the Daughters of the Mayflower series.
