In ‘The Captain’s Rebel’ we meet Mary O’Malley. Mary is determined to get her ancestors land back. To achieve that she is marrying one of her old friends, at least that is the plan. When things don’t go as planned, and her own life is in danger, Mary embarks on a journey across the Atlantic Ocean as a cabin boy. There Mary meets the ship’s captain Richard Grant. And soon Mary finds out that Richard isn’t one to fool easily.
The beginning of ‘The Captain’s Rebel’ was a little hard to get into if you ask me. It really took me some time to get used to the characters and the way they acted. Since ‘The Captain’s Rebel’ is a historical romance novel, I suspected a certain way of communication and courting, but this was definitely something else.
The main character Mary wasn’t really my kind of character. I began to like her more and more how farther I got into the story, but especially in the beginning I just didn’t really like her. She was to slutty, and kind of selfish is you ask me.
Captain Richard Grant was a character I liked from the start. He was mysterious, and kind of funny and he really had something charming and endearing about him.
‘The Captain’s Rebel’ had some BDSM in it, what isn’t really my thing but it didn’t bother me. It seemed to fit the characters and their romance. And let me tell you, the romance between Mary and Richard was really good. I just loved those two, and the whole BDSM bit, seemed to fit their relationship perfectly.
Although there were some parts about this book I didn’t really like, I loved most of this read. ‘The Captain’s Rebel’ is definitely a different kind of historical romance read than you usual see.

What a great story!! First I loved that the main character was a heroine and second that it featured rather sexy sounding Captain!! I love historical romance stories so as soon as I read the synopsis I was eager to start!
I loved the setting for the story and the plot. It was totally unique and this made the story even more enjoyable for me! I loved the characters – Mary was great! I loved her feistiness and they was she wasn’t afraid to go for what she wanted – even if it didn’t always go the way she wanted anticipated. Captain Richard Grant was so sexy!! He also had a past that was great to read about in the book. He was certainly sexy and dominating but also showed a gentle side sometimes towards Mary.
We start the story in Ireland where Mary is trying to get her ancestral home back. She embarks on a journey disguised as a ‘cabin boy’ except she doesn’t realise she will end up on a ship with a Captain who not only discovers who she is but in turn wants her total submission.
I haven’t previously read anything by this author and I can’t wait to read more of her work. The descriptive writing in the story was great, I could imagine what I was reading and felt like I was on that ship with them! There were some great twists to the story that I wasn’t expecting. Some of the scenes between him and Mary were HOT!!! I loved reading about Mary and Richard’s journey! I definitely recommend it!
I'm not one to love historical romances but this book has made me rethink everything I've been missing out on! Mary is an Irish born rebel who's just one of the many that suffered the effects of the Rebellion in 1798 (I actually learned something) and when the one thing to grant her home freedom disappears, she goes out to retrieve it. At all costs.
The tone of this story and writing style were amazing. I loved how stubborn she was, how persistent and passionate she felt for her country. Grant, a captain who knew more than anyone about hardship and hard work, refuses to grasp her understanding of boarding a Navy's ship under guise. Yet when push comes to shove, he finds himself doing everything in his power to keep her safe. Their chemistry was off the charts, and since I'm a sucker for the hate-first-love-later romances, it wasn't hard to get into their dominate games of keeping control. There was adventure, suspense, a thrilling secret that would make or break them. The ending was a little weird for me but in all honesty, I don't exactly have the grounds to judge how one would react in the face of danger. But still, it left me very satisfied in the end and I can't wait to see what other Irish heroines Halverson has in store. Definite recommend for you history buffs that enjoy a good tale.

The well-developed characters pull the reader into their world and allows them to feel the faraway land where the story unfolds in such a way they may feel as if they go back in time to this historical era, become part of the characters, and feel the gripping tale unfold. This author has the remarkable talent to grab the reader at the first page and hold them through the last. Excellently written, the plot and characters become a part of the reader’s day.
Captain Richard Grant didn’t fight his way to the ranks of the Royal Navy to be undone by an independent headstrong lady, hell bent on destroying his mission. This hellion insists on dressing like a man, and therefore should take his punishments. Demanding obedience, he finds his need become insatiable and leads to a game of sex, desire, and dominance, raging out of even his control.
Mary O’Malley is determined to win back her ancestral home. Disguising herself as a cabin boy she embarks on a journey to make this happen. But the stern captain demands complete and total submission, two things she will never give. When her false identity leads to rumors of her being a spy, she must choose between the frustrating captain and her love for Ireland.
All the reader should do is open to page one of this fast paced read and become completely engrossed. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves sexy, steamy, passionate romances.
