Second in Ashley's Regency Pirates series, this one didn't capture my attention at all, maybe it's because pirates just don't do it for me. Still, I love this author and can't get enough of her, even if I don't like pirates. I meandered through this book and didn't care that much about Diana or James. It got off to a good start, but just really slowed down while they are together on Haven. Her father's secret turned out to be entirely anticlimactic and then James' capture, etc. For some reason there seemed to be a lack of cohesiveness in the storyline, but I plodded along until the finish line. It didn't help that there were loads of typos in the kindle edition, which really surprised me and became increasingly annoying. Simple things that a spell and grammar check would catch. I love this author, but this series is not a favorite. Since I got it for next to nothing on kindle, I'll read Book 3 since I already have it though. Disappointing. ( )

This is a full-length novel of 91,000 words. Diana Worthing is the wife of an English naval hero, daughter of a naval hero -- she's had quite enough of heroes, thank you. So when James Ardmore, Southern gentleman pirate hunter and thorn in the side of the British navy, abducts her from a tedious house party and spirits her off to his ship, she lets him know what she thinks of heroes. James interrogates her about the tiny island of Haven her father owns, where Diana and her father and deaf daughter retreat to escape the world. Diana resists, knowing that Captain Ardmore is an enemy of the English. But when Ardmore pins her to the wall of his cabin and asks her to sail away with him, sparks fly, and the temptation is great. But though Diana is an unhappily married woman, she has a daughter who needs her, and she refuses. James knows the island of Haven holds the secret to the pirate he's been hunting for years. He can't bend the beautiful Lady Worthing to his will, though James is intrigued by this woman of unquenchable fire. He lets her go, learning nothing. But he's pleased to find himself stranded on Haven the following year, Diana Worthing now a widow, and the sparks between them just as hot . . . Book 2 of the Regency Pirates series. The Pirate Hunter's Lady is the second, revised edition of the original print title: The Pirate Hunter. New in this edition: New first four chapters detailing Diana and James's first meeting. Revised, edited body of the book. New epilogue.… (more)
