The least credible romance,
This review is from: The Least Likely Bride (Mass Market Paperback)
Olivia, the daughter of Cato Granville, is woolgathering one day, steps off the edge of a cliff and is knocked unconscious. She is rescued by a pirate ship and, once she recovers, the pirate captain climbs into her bed and just casually has sex with her. Riiiight. Okay. And she decides that she wants to see him again?!
So then once he has her taken home, she sneaks out of her father's house to meet him again. And even when she realises that he has to be part of a plot to work against her father's political agenda, she stays quiet and doesn't tell Cato what's going on. Even though she knows that Anthony is a pirate.
I'm sorry; I just didn't see any romance in here, and I didn't even like the 'hero'. And as for the ending, what kind of thing is that? I kept waiting for him to renounce his lawless life, but no; he continues to be a pirate, and Cato lets Phoebe go to him instead of having him handed over to the police and hanged. And they don't even get married!
