Product Description

Product Description

Book 3 in the Regency Pirates series. This is a full-length novel (80,000 words, twenty-six chapters).

Honoria Ardmore has a secret. Four years ago, the notorious pirate Christopher Raine, arrested and condemned for stealing a ship full of gold bound for Napoleon, makes one last request of Honoria. She grants it, and Christopher is taken out to be hanged. -- Or was he?

Honoria couldn’t have seen him alive again in the rather thick fog outside Covent Garden Theatre, could she? Christopher is long dead and gone, Honoria’s secret with him. Her life has moved on, and now she’s betrothed to a respectable English gentleman.

Christopher has other ideas. His sentence commuted at the last minute, Christopher was press-ganged onto a ship bound for Asia, and he's spent the last four years working to return home and get everything back—his crew, his treasure, and Honoria Ardmore—his wife.

Meet the crew of the Starcross, and revisit the crews of the Argonaut and the Majesty for more pirate fun and adventure!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ashely delivers! 12 Feb 2005
By Deborah MacGillivray HALL OF FAME VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Jennifer Ashley is a talented writer. Not only does she pen great pirate romances under the name Jennifer Ashley (The Pirate Next Door; The Pirate Hunter), she has given us super Regency Mysteries under the penname Ashley Gardner (The Glass House; A Regimental Murder; The Hanover Square Affair; Sudbury School Murders). In her latest (and I think best) pirate tale, The Care and Feeding of Pirates, Ashley gives us a memorable hero, an enigmatic heroine and a full body tale of yo ho ho.
Christopher Raine is a Gamma Rogue hero who meets his match with Honoria Ardmore. A proper lady in the fine Southern Belle Tradition, she has the steel of Scarlett O'Hara. Honoria has a "connection" to Raine's view - she's his wife! She is also the sister of Raine's enemy. Brother James sent Christopher Raine to his death on the gallows. Before he did this, Honoria had become Mrs. Christopher Raine, though Honoria forgets to "mention" that fact to Brother Dearest.
Nearly four years have passed, and suddenly Christopher is in London wanting his wife. Hum, how does one explain a dead husband? hehehe. Well, Ashley does with her delicate craft, in a tale that is funny, sexy (I mean SEXY!) and enjoyable.
So get to Yo-ho-hoing and have a great time with Ashley's best pirate tale yet. You will adore Raine and Honoria from start to finish. Ashley has proven to be a subtle writer that gives depth and intelligence to her characters, leaving us eagerly awaiting more tales on the "care" of pirates.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! 8 Nov 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I absolutely loved this series of (3) books from Jennifer Ashley, which started with the Pirate Next Door. I wish she'd written more of them! I love historical romances and these are a little bit different because they are about 'pirates' rather than the usual Regency rakes. The heroes are damaged 'Alpha' males but the women are feisty enough to stand up to them. Other reviewers have detailed the plot, so I'll just say they are a mix of romance, humour and adventure, with a few steamy scenes - a sort of Pirates of the Caribbean but with sex. This one is probably my favourite (although it's really hard to choose!) but it will make more sense if you start with the first book, the Pirate Next Door. Recommended, particularly if you enjoy authors such as Stephanie Laurens, Julia Quinn and Danelle Harmon.

Jennifer's stories keep you enthralled from beginning to end. It's not often that you find an author who can bring her characters to life on paper. A special skill.
