In 1785, Captain
Nathaniel Hawkins and his first mate Richard drowned at sea
and, wracked with guilt, Richard’s wife Amalie hung
herself. Having lost their chance at love, two of the three
were reincarnated. Richard and Amalie, now Rico and Annie,
have found each other once again. Happily married, the two
know there’s something missing in their life. What they
don’t know is that that something is Nate.
Unlike his two
loves, Nate wasn’t reincarnated. His ghost haunted the
Jolly Roger Inn, until the power of two lovers, namely Rico
and Annie, brought him back to life. Happy to be corporeal
once more, Nate hesitates to reveal himself. He wonders if
he has the right to intrude on their new lives. And if he
does, does that mean Rico and Annie will love him like they
did in another life?
There is a
famous movie quote which fits Pirates Do It with
Passion to a T: “Death cannot stop true love. All it
can do is delay it for a while.” Mimi Riser has written a
deliciously naughty romp all about love and second chances.
It was wonderful to watch Nate, Rico, and Annie all learn
from their past mistakes. To say how that happens would be
to spoil the book, so I must leave it at that. I can say
that I adored all three protagonists, which made me unable
to put Pirates Do It with Passion down. It
doesn’t hurt that Ms. Riser includes some meltingly erotic
love scenes in the story, either.
Pirates Do It
is the sequel to Playing Pirates. While Ms. Riser
provides all the information necessary to follow along even
if you haven’t read Playing Pirates, I can definitely
say the first book is worth the read as it is as fun and
sexy as Pirates Do It with Passion.
Fast-paced and hot as hell, I greatly enjoyed Pirates
Do It with Passion.
