Product Description

Product Description

Felicity Kendall forced her passionate nature into hinding after a handsome rogue seduced her then sailed away with the profits from her father's shipping company. Afterwards, she embraced the strictness of her mother's faith, molding herself into a rigid spinster before her time. After ruining herself so thoroughly, she can never marry. Her only hope is to escape the strict mores of Boston's Puritan population so she could be of use in her father's enterprises in the Caribbean.

On Barbados, she discovers her father has added a new partner to his venture. Lord Christian Andrews might charm her father, but Felicity sees the scoundrel behind his handsome exterior. She won't allow him to send her away, despite the fact a notorious pirate has targeted her father's ships and murdered his other business partner. Felicity feels it her duty to sneak aboard Lord Christian's ship before he sails away with her father's fortune. What she discovers is a man capable of unleashing her denied lust, though their shared passion might destroy them both.

2.0 out of 5 stars God-awful! 24 July 2013
By MrsWS
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really disliked this book. The 'heroine' was annoying, prejudiced and self-righteous, determined that she knows better than everybody else even though she's only in the situation she finds herself in because of her own bad decisions and questionable morals! She decides on sight that Drew is a suspicious character and that he MUST be nefarious and dishonest, proceeding then to search for evidence she can fit to whatever crime he's committed in her head. Was I supposed to be impressed that she was right to sense something off about Drew, when she has gone about it so childishly with her blinkers on? She's really not a nice, likeable character and yet Drew, who is portrayed as a sensible yet secretive man, falls for her? There was absolutely nothing to like about Felicity for me and I couldn't see how Drew could find anything to love. I'm just glad I barely spent any money downloading this, as I skim-read after the first few chapters. Won't be trying this author again.

2.0 out of 5 stars What a shame 26 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This had the making of a good story but it was clumsy repetitive and had a lot of unnecessary smuttiness which just killed the romance. The plot simply didn't flow and how irritating was Feli ity Kendall. I was totally bewildered by the story because there were too many inconsistencies

4.0 out of 5 stars fine early eighteenth century high seas adventure romance 18 Sep 2003
By Harriet Klausner - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In 1721 Felicity Kendell lives a pious prim life overcoming a youthful indiscretion. She dresses in black and always turns to the Lord for guidance as any good Puritan should. However, her sense of adventure remains strong so she sails to Barbados to visit her father Benjamin, whom she had not seen in a few years.
Instead of a warm reunion, her father defiles the Lord asking why Felicity is not in Boston. Soon she meets his partners who have no Yankee ethics with the worst being the exasperating but gorgeous Lord Christian Andrews representing all the passion she has given up. She sneaks on Drew's ship to prove he is cruel, but instead finds a kind hearted individual bringing out the passion she buried.
Fans of early eighteenth high seas adventure romances will want to join the vast crew for the ride. The story line is fast-paced going at knots that usually means lack of characterizations, but Cheryl Howe also insures readers understand the motives of her lead protagonists. The myriad of secondary cast members is a solid supporting group though the extremes make some of the villains into abusive cartoon figures. Still fans will enjoy THE PIRATE AND THE PURITAN, just wear your life preserver and seat belt as this novel is moving.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Pirate Read! 3 Jun 2005
By Kelly Peterson - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love Pirate and sea going historicals. But even I know they all pretty much run along the same theme. So I was pleasantly surprise to read Cheryl Howe's The Pirate and The Puritan! The title jumps out of you and it doesn't stop there. The book itself is one of those you do not wish to put down till it is done. Felicity and Drew take us on one great voyage. Both characters are strong and endearing at the same time. This author is some one to watch!

1.0 out of 5 stars Didn't even finish it 13 Jan 2014

Over used plot, dull writing style. I don't know, the start was ok but midway it just got so incredibly boring I had to force myself to keep reading but eventually I just gave up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Silly Pirate Romance 1 July 2013
By N. Balsom - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I liked the book. This was offered for free, so I can't complain about the price. I was up for a pirate fantasy, and this one was good! Both the male character and female character were strong and independent. They both new what they wanted and went for it (although it took a few chapters to build up the tension between the two). The ending added some pirate butt kicking with a happily ever after ending - which suited me well. If you were looking for a pirate romance, you'll like his book.

The story was good, but the ending left you hanging. Would like to know how and where they went from the sea.
