    One thought on “The Rogue Pirate's Bride”

    1. ***original review posted at Romancing Rakes***Danger, intrigue, betrayal, revenge, swashbuckling action and an unconventional love story between a pirate (okayyy, privateer if you want to get technical) and the daughter of a British admiral set against a Bruckheimer-esque background. You can almost hear faint strains of The Pirates of the Caribbean theme interspersed with the clangs of swordplay as the action and adventure escalates on the high seas. Shana Galen's got this formula down to a sci [...]

    2. Bumped down to 3.5 stars on reread. I cannot fathom that I was this smitten with this book the first time around.Original review:I can't stop grinning. This is one of those books that make you wish there were more stars - it is too good to be lumped with other five star books. It might be the best romance I've read this year! One look at his too-handsome face, one word from his too-charming mouth, and she didn't know if she wanted to kiss him or kill him.It's a stormy romance with the most amazi [...]

    3. I have a confession to make. I have a real weakness for pirate/naval romance. There's something about the wide open ocean, and those little itty bitty ships they used to sail to plunder and pillage (if you ever get the chance to tour a realistic modern copy, you realize just how minuscule they were, and how packing hundreds of people on board must have been interesting). And then pirates are always gorgeous and rough and scantily clad and full of derring-do, and naval officers are like pirates b [...]

    4. After her fiance dies at (according to what she's been told) the hands of the barbarous Captain Cutlass, Raeven Russell wants revenge. But when she comes face to face with the infamous pirate, she not only finds it impossible to skewer the disarmingly handsome rogue, but also discovers that both adventure and passion await on board his ship. There's a bit of a snag though - she's the daughter of a British admiral, and her father's intent on seeing Cutlass hang. Action abounds in this gripping ad [...]

    5. Revenge is the name of the game for Raeven Russell. The daughter of a British admiral, almost her whole life has been at sea and she loves it but when the pirate Captain Cutless kills her fiance, she is out avenge his death. Raeven has heard tales of this 'privateer,' as he refers to himself, and feels like it is her job to teach the scoundrel a lesson. So she stuffs her long black hair into a cap, drags her friend with her to a bar where Cutless will be and challenges him to a duel, which she i [...]

    6. This is a really great pirate story, and most of the story really takes place at sea! If you're like me, you've noticed that a lot of historicals claim to be about pirates, and there's hardly a pirate or ship in sight. This is not like that at all, there's so much swashbuckling action, if you're into pirate tales, I highly recommend this book.Bastien is a gentleman pirate, not your typical rough looking sea captain, and Raeven is no shrinking violet that he's abducted. She can hold her own just [...]

    7. Story Rating 4.5 starsCharacter Rating 5 starsRomance rating 4.5 starsAction Rating 5 starsHeat Level 2.5 starsOverall Rating 4.5 starsThis was a very good and exciting book to read. It grabbed me right from the start, kept me reading and now my house is still dirty, LMAO! Well at least I got all the laundry done while reading, hahahahaha.If you like Pirate book's with high sea action this book is a must read. I really loved both the H&h in this book. The secondary characters were good also. [...]

    8. FINALY! I’ve waited for this book it seems for EVAH! By now y’all know how much I love this author’s work and as much as I was looking forward to this story, once I found out they were changing the title (I will ALWAYS refer to this novel as THE MAKING OF A ROGUE) and then the cover (which is not consistent to the series), I was getting anxiety attacks in regards to the content. See, this is what happens to someone like me who takes her ROMANCE reading to a whole new level. And for that, I [...]

    9. I just love those "pirate kidnaps insolent/thieving young boy to teach him a lesson and have him work for him on his ship and when they have already set sail discovers the boy is indeed an alluring woman" stories! So I was looking very much forward to The Rogue Pirate's Bride. And I am happy to say it was wonderful!The heroine Raeven was my favourite kind of heroine: feisty, stubborn, independent, the kind of girl who always lands herself in all kinds of trouble (which are of course very enterta [...]

    10. Review originally posted at Ramblings From This ChickIt's not often when a book can make me cry. To be honest, it usually never happens, but I admit to weeping like a baby on more than one occasion while reading The Rogue Pirate's Bride. Oh my, this book was so good. Full of action, suspense, mystery and some pretty steamy love scenes it had me turning the pages in an attempt to keep up with everything.I'll admit, this book started off a bit slow for me. Not that the story was slow, it's just th [...]

    11. Raeven is burning with the desire to get her revenge for her fiancee's death by Captain Cutlass a pirate she has been searching for. She finally finds him, and vows to kill him here and now. Only she never expects to be faced with such a opponet that makes her burn with desire, a passion she has never known. Raeven doesn't expect to feel the desire to kill him to weaken and her desire for him to strengthen. She see's a side to him, a part of him, that she knows she could never harm or maim or ki [...]

    12. Entertaining Lighter Pirate Fare with a Dashing French Privateer!This is one of Galen’s Sons of Revolution romances, set in 1802, beginning in France but also with scenes in Gibraltar and onboard a sloop and British naval ship. It tells the story of Sebastien Harcourt, marquis de Valere (aka Captain Cutlass), a privateer sailing under letters of marque from Spain, and at the moment, seeking revenge on a Barbary pirate responsible for the death of his mentor. Long ago in the Revolution he lost [...]

    13. You can find this review also at Forever Book Lover.This book captivated me right from the start. It hooked me from the first page and I didn’t couldn’t put it down until I read the last page. I am not sure my review will do this book justice. Let me give it a try, though.I selected this book not knowing that it was part of a series, actually this is book three in The Sons of the Revolution. I would not have known until I came toward the end of the book, even then the author gave you enough [...]

    14. Reviewed By~MarissaReview Copy Provided By~NetGalleyFirst off – I absolutely love pirates. Maybe it goes back to watching old Errol Flynn and Tyrone Power movies on television, the tight pants and high boots, the shirt open down to there and, of course, gazing raptly as they swung around on the ship’s rigging with the ease of a trapeze artist. So when I heard Shana Galen had a new book featuring a *swoon* pirate, I screamed – and then let RtB know I wanted that book. I mean, I really wante [...]

    15. "Merde"! Our wonderful Shana Galen has done it again with another ripping romance that's sure to tickle your fancy plus some. The last of the Harcourt brothers has been found by a beautiful wild woman of the sea which leads us to a soul searing romance that will leave scorch marks instead of love bites.Raeven Russell has a vendetta to act on and now only to find the man that shall see that Hell hath no fury like a woman's scorn or hurt for that matter. Raeven is a small delicate beauty to behold [...]

    16. I like grown-up Bastien, less rebellious teen Raeven. Pirate refuses to fight her, either "child" dressed as a boy, or hair loosed as girl. She's thoughtless, gets others in trouble, even killed. Of course romance is sweet-hot main plot, her emerald eyes fall for his "cobalt eyes" p 150, with sides of fighting, deaths. Despite Admiral's warnings, his young purser Percy Williams never admits he loves Raevan, and helps her escapades till the very last. Percy and Bastien say a man makes his own cho [...]

    17. Every little girl has her father wrapped around her little finger. They just look up at them with those love filled eyes and the fathers are helpless to resist. They will do anything they can for their little girls, no matter how old she gets because inside she will always be his little girl. Raeven and her father are like that, he wants what he thinks is best for her. He makes the calls and disciplines in the hopes she will grow up and have the kind of life he could never give her. Even when it [...]

    18. (potential spoilers)Okay, so it features going down. That's about all it has going for it. Sure, I like Bastien, but Raeven's name is all kinds of distracting and justh. Such an annoying name. Honestly, it's light, fluffy, and oh yes features a pirate who is a nobleman and of course gets to be reunited with his mother and brothers at the end of the story. And of course he lands Raeven (THAT NAME).Eh. I dunno. It was a thing. Galen strikes me as kind of hit or miss anyway. And yes, I like Raeven [...]

    19. not bad, but not the best romance novel you can read. The darling, adventurous heroine goes from hating him to loving him and it just doesn't quite make sense. Just suspend belief as you read about their love.

    20. Surprisingly good. I'm a sucker for pirates, but it turns out I'm an even bigger sucker for seafaring ladies who can wield a sword, do the work of a sailor, and plot sea battles. I'm looking forward to reading more from this author.

    21. I liked it. I especially liked that you could truly read it alone without having read the two before it. A lot of books claim that but only a few succeed. The story was interesting even though at the beginning she was redundant in her use of "pirate bastard".

    22. Synopsis: "1802. France. After escaping France on a privateer's ship, Sébastien Harcourt, Marquis de Valère, becomes notorious privateer Captain Cutlass and crosses swords with the beautiful daughter of a British admiral. Raeven Russell wants to avenge her fiancé's death. Bastien wants Jourdain, to avenge his mentor's death. But vengeance melts in the heat of passion."My Review: I have been absolutely inhaling this trilogy, and I thought the second book was my favorite but this might be a ver [...]

    23. Previously posted at Paperback DollsI have a confession to make. This is my very first pirate romance novel. When I first came across Shana Galen’s The Rogue Pirate’s Bride I instantly thought of those Harlequin ‘bodice ripper’ romance novels that came out in the early 90’s with Fabio Lanzoni on the cover. And not even exactly what they are, but more along the lines of what I thought they would be like considering I haven’t read one of those either. However, it’s always a pleasure [...]

    24. This is a fun story with a woman before her time. Raevan Russell can do everything that needs to be done on a Btitish Navy ship in the 1700's. Including use a sword. And she is going to use that sword to kill the pirate that killed her fiance.Captain Cutlass , who secretly a Marquee, is the pirate she wants to kill.When she sneaks onto his ship the adventure begins.

    25. 5 Stars! Didn’t realize this was book three. Iol I’ll have to go back and read the first two. Loved this one:)

    26. WonderfulLoved this series and this last one was so good! Of course there were some sad times too, but Bastian finds HEA along with his family. Great read!

    27. A brilliant end to this great series. All the threads of the previous books come together in this last story. Great characters and I loved the plot! I will read these again in the future.
