    The year 1710 The setting pirate ship somewhere in the CaribbeanNathaniel Bainbridge is traveling by ship with his pregnant sister to meet their scheming father in the New World an island near modern day Bahamas called Primrose Isle But before the ship can reach its destination it's attacked by the The Damned Manta a pirate ship ruled by the infamous Captain Hawk who just struck bloody gold Hawk has a bone to pick with Nathaniel's father and taking Nathaniel prisoner is the perfect plan of revenge If Nathaniel's father doesn't cough up the ransom Nathaniel dies My treasure my prize my plum That is all you are until your father pays what I'm owed So begins Kidnapped by the Pirate—a grand adventure brimming with passion romance danger shifting allegiances and forbidden desires Hawk is a lonely man who dreams of a life away from the seas Conscripted by the British Navy at age 15 Hawk escaped only to be branded a pirate by Nathaniel's greedy power hungry father Hawk is loyal to his men and swears to keep Nathaniel at arm's length even as he grows possessive of Nathaniel with each day Nathaniel is a ray of sunshine Kind brave keeping a shameful secret filled with a deep longing he doesn't understand Nathaniel won't back down even when Hawk is cruel He vows to break through Hawk's staged veneer to the heart of the man Nathaniel is 18 to Hawk's 41 but the age gap hardly matters This is a different time and Nathaniel isn't a child He craves a man's touch Seeing the world through Nathaniel's eyes makes Hawk feel young again even as he claims his soul is dark Only devils here Initially the greatest of enemies Hawk and Nathaniel become lovers Hawk must choose Nathaniel or his men? Love or fealty? Desire or revenge? True hell was to love This is a beautifully written complex story with a rich setting pitch perfect dialogue and real multi faceted characters—not just Nathaniel and Hawk but the secondary characters as well Nathaniel's sister Susanna fearless smart and supportive I loved Susie so much Hawk's men including the slightly dour Mr Snell who would do anything for his captain but worries about where Hawk's loyalties lie and Mr O'Connell forever grateful to Nathaniel for saving his life John Hawk's first love long dead Hawk's memories of John made me cry This book is everything I wanted and MORE fast paced incredibly sexy eager virgin submissiondomination mild humiliation kink primal coupling on the beach with adventure and romance perfectly balancedAs a lover of history I also have to mention the setting which felt so authentic and true to the time and place I am by no means an expert on pirates but I was never pulled out of the story by anachronisms I'm not remotely surprised Keira Andrews always does her research She's a master This is the ultimate love story one where age and social class don't matter There's even a daring rescue but I won't tell you who rescues whom In the end and a very happy hopeful truly fulfilling end it is Hawk and Nathaniel rescue each other You are no man's lesser Least of all mine And the love I have for you is like no other I'm a sobbing mess I didn't want this book to end I'm rereading immediately and then maybe I'll be able to write a coherent reviewFor now let me just say This is hands down the best book I've read this year Thrilling insanely sexy a wild emotional ride and also the best MM historical ever For those of you worried about daddy kink there's none of that here The age gap is fairly inconsequential too And the HEA yeah still a blubbering messAll the stars and then a thousand
