26 April 2017

The Pirate Lord by Vanda Vadas

Lady Eloise Blakely has brotherly affection for Gareth, Duke of Arlington. He has other ideas. The duke wants her dowry and he will do what he can to make sure the marriage takes place.

Gareth has done what he can to make sure he keeps close company with the Blakely family. He was the one to save Julian from being trampled when he was a teen when Julian’s parents were killed. As she tries to avoid Gareth, Eloise meets a stranger in the grounds when she takes some fresh air at a ball. When she pursues the stranger, she falls and hits her head and loses her sight, albeit temporarily.

Eloise is then kidnapped by the stranger who is known as the pirate lord. Zach, really Miles Zachary Fenton, has been forced to take to the seas but it is with purpose. He will extract his revenge on his brother, Gareth. Zach, as the pirate lord, has been making inroads into ensuring that Gareth’s crimes come to the notice of everyone. Too much more will mean that I give away some of the details and there are a few twists …

There are the normal misunderstandings of the relationships that Zach may or may not be involved in while he has been away pirating. Eloise does recover her sight and this leads to her being able to do things that assist Zach in his revenge. Zach does have to make the decision as to what is more important—Eloise or the final revenge on Gareth.

This book has been in my TBR (to be reviewed, as I prefer to call it) list for a while. I was looking for something historical and different, and chose this book. And then had to keep reading as there were enough turns in the story to keep me interested until the end.
