The Pirate Wench by Melinda Barron

Resplendence Publishing

Erotic Contemporary

Reviewed by Willow



Practical, logical Melani Cantor is covering her best friend’s wedding to the “Pirate King” for their small hometown newspaper. She is also writing a series of articles about Ahoy Matey, the pirate theme park owned by Ellie’s fiancé. When Melani meets a well built, well-endowed, very wet pirate, Practical Melani takes a backseat to Wanton Melani and the heat level spikes.

Royce McKenna, lawyer turned pirate and part owner of Ahoy Matey, very much likes what he sees when he helps Melani out of her costume and he wants to see more. But Melani is determined to stay away from him. She doesn’t sleep with men she has just met. So Royce does what any good pirate would do—he takes what he wants.

The Pirate Wench is a modern day pirate tale. I have to admit that I was expecting a historical romance when I read the title. I was just a tiny bit disappointed when I realized it wasn’t….but not for long. I was pleasantly surprised with the flirty, fun tone of the story. Along with overcoming past hurts and present misunderstandings, Melani and Royce deal with the heat of growing feelings and the fun of letting go. But when all is said and done, what’s a pirate wench to do? Why, what any good pirate would do—she’ll take what she wants.
