Noah Yates fully believes in the joys of a happy family and a good wife. But that’s not the life for him. No, he would much rather sail the wild seas in search of adventure, not tied down. But then the unthinkable happens . . . he finds himself literally tied down. To a bed. By a woman.
And Pilar isn’t just an ordinary woman. She’s descended from pirates. And after giving him one of the worst nights of his life, she steals his ship! Now Noah is on the hunt, and he’ll stop at nothing to find this extraordinary woman . . . and make her his.
So, I’m on a historical romance binge. I can’t help it. When I pick up a Beverly Jenkins novel, I can’t stop at one. Maybe it’s because many of them are connected and I want to know everyone’s story, see their HEA.
It’s definitely in part because I get a history lesson that I was unfortunately never taught it school. Until Destiny’s Captive, I’d never heard of the Mambis and General Maceo, or the important roles Afro-Latinos played in Cuba’s independence from Spain. I have…thoughts on why that is, but I think we all know.
Anyway, Pilar and Noah’s story wraps up the Yates brothers’ series. Pilar is another independent woman I can get behind. Maybe her acceptance of marriage and babies came a little too quick, but in the end, she’s the hero of the story. She saves her husband, rather than the other way around. I get can behind that type of role reversal. It’s not hard to figure out what happened to Noah after he was imprisoned, and I was glad to see that the resolution wasn’t a quick fix. But, we read romances for the happily ever after, and Pilar and Noah got that.
The greedy side of me wants another book. A spinoff featuring Doneta. Any girl that into the fairy tale deserves her own.
