Captain Sabre does appear to Be more brutal than Christopher Saxon (his alter ego) regarding women. Sabre makes no bones that women are only good for one thing and has no other use for them. He's a pirate and he's ruthless and lives by his own rules. He was hurt by a scheeming woman and vowed to never let another get under his skin - until Nicole Ashford.
Nicole/Nick is Sabres cabin boy until he discovers her secret. Sabre catches her and her friend Allen spying, he deals with Allen by holding him in cell with threats to hand him over to the authorities where he would undoubtably hang. He has other plans for Nicole as he makes it clear that he desires her and she agrees to become his mistress willingly if he frees Allen.
It's hard to write this part without glorifying sabre's rape of Nicole. It's a controversial part of the book, although it didn't really bother me.
After they sleep together Nicole comes after Sabre with a smashed goblet and while Sabre catches her wrist he pulls her arm up her back and throws her face down on the bed where he takes her again.(this is a man with no respect to the feelings of women and reagrds Nicole as his property. He does get better as the book goes on) when he finished with her she came at him again and he held on to her wrist to get her to realease the broken glass only it goes too far and he breaks her wrist. He is remorseful, he does blame Nicole and he is a brute. despite this there are some tender moments but LV has two sides to their story, and if you love historical romances and haven't read this book then i think you would love it.
There are so many complexaties to both characters and lots of edge of seat 'don't do it' moments, but it is a very good read and i defy you not to fall in love with both Christopher and Nicole.
It's one of the rawest romance novels i have read and i hated having to put it down.
i have been reading Shirlee Busbee novels since i was 15 (her first 6 being the best) i am now 46 and still love reading them. LV was the first one i read and it will always be my favourite.
