NEVER JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER.
It does contain love scenes and fowl language since it portrays real events with authentic people. Parental Guidance of 16 is advice.
This was one story I truly loved to write. I love romance mixed with adventure and action. Telling a story that draws the reader in as I myself like when reading a good book. Delivering a message and making the blood boil all at the same time. All elements of a good book.
This was one great journey facing many challenges during the writing and publishing of this book. Meeting new people and facing new challenges as I went along.
Still learning but so far a thrilling ride.
The story itself was picked from a book I read awhile back but in my humble opinion lacked certain answers feeling like a cliffhanger at the end and I wanted to finish it. This is my version of the journey these people faced in the book. Continuing by adding more characters by answering questions I felt were unanswered. I never liked a cliffhanger in a book unless it is part of a series. But a stand alone needs a conclusion, bringing everything together so that you feel you have reached the pinnacle of the characters life. Making sense of the struggles the characters faced during the book.
Thanks for all the support so far, hoping I can draw you in my world and keep you glued to the pages of every book out of my pen.
This is a great read! This story begins in the 1600's and spans a twenty year period. The main characters "chronicle" their hardships aboard a sailing vessel, and the devastation they suffered after a storm claimed the ship. Rosa-Lee, and her parents are well-rounded and believable, as is the mysterious Roberto. Rosa-Lee finds herself in the middle of an elaborate scheme that she doesn't fully understand, and the romance that unfolds takes her by surprise.
Anyone who enjoys historical romance will love this. I highly recommend this book, for ages 17 and up (erotic content).
I was pleasantly surprised when I read this book. Lynelle asked me to read it and review it. It had a lot of action and was well written. It was also a very fast read. Rosa Lee was a very strong character, and when she meets Roberto she doesn't know really what to think of him. But in the end she finds out that you really can't judge a book by it's cover. I suggest you read this, you'll like it.
The one quality all readers want form a writer is clean crisp writing, which is what is delivered in this story that unfolds seamlessly in this pirate drama that constantly begs you to look ahead, but glues you to each page. This is a highly recommended book that is a real sleeper. A definite buy.
