    As delightful as the scrumptious cover

    After all these years that he’d been presumed dead, Hugh Redvers, the true Lord Davenport, was alive! That dreadful shock could not have come at a worse time for Lady Daphne Davenport, right after an altercation with Sir Malcolm Hastings, would was becoming too persistent. Had Hugh discovered Daphne’s secrets? What would happen to her and her ten year-old sons? And why did Hugh have to look so impossibly gorgeous, even with his eye patch, his scars, and his missing finger! Dangerous, the first book of The Outcasts, was very good, but BARABAROUS is fantastic! Although it takes place in the same timeline as Dangerous, BARBAROUS stands perfectly on its own. The luscious cover is partly to blame for my decision to read this book, and what a delight that the contents is just as scrumptious! BARBAROUS is fabulously intriguing right from the beginning when Hugh arrives, accompanied by his colourful entourage, and Daphne displays her fortitude and strength of character. Minerva Spencer’s prose is impossibly gorgeous, and her eloquence paints stunning and unforgettable visuals; it’s also very witty, and I laughed several times. The secondary characters are amazing: Rowena, Daphne’s cantankerous maid; Kemal, Hugh’s valet; Hugh’s aunts: the eccentric and forgetful Amelia or the formidable Letitia. I can hardly wait – hopefully not in vain – for Two Canoes’ story; let’s just say he made an impression on me. The villains are stupendously horrid, and outstandingly complex – crafted with as much care as the principals. Hugh and Daphne are both fascinating characters who have enthralling backstories, and their chemistry jumps off the page. The privateer-bad boy Hugh is a softie at heart, and a man I would like to have on my side any day. Daphne is magnificent! She is a proper widow, a serious philosopher, and nothing leaves her discombobulated. Well, actually Hugh does just a little bit. What a superb couple they are, exchanging witty and flirtatious banter; the dialogues throughout are positively stellar! BARBAROUS has it all: kidnappings, murder attempts, smouldering passion, a grand romance, spectacular adventures, and writing that will make you swoon! I am giddy at the thought of the SCANDALOUS story of Martín Bouchard, which will be the next instalment in the series!

    Historical Romance

    What a delight for me to return to a memory of a book read long ago – one written by Rafael Sabatini titled The Sea Hawk. Why did it take me back? Both main characters were captured and enslaved and both rose above what happened to them to become “more” than they might otherwise have been. AND, both were charming heroes that ended up with happiness and true love in their lives. Back to this book now and why I liked it. Daphne has a secret…a HUGE secret that perhaps never would have been an issue if Huge had not come back from the dead. Trying to figure out how to share this secret with Hugh was not easy for Daphne, especially since she was so very attracted to him. Her life and the lives of her twin sons could be upended and ended if the secret comes out. His reaction to her secret could have dire consequences. Add into the mix the fact that Daphne’s cousin Malcolm is out to create trouble, there is a woman to save in Oran, there is attraction between Daphne and Hugh that is socially taboo and a revenge issue that Hugh needs to deal with and you have a swashbuckling, action-packed, thrilling romance that had me riveted from beginning to end. I loved Hugh as a book boyfriend and I loved Daphne’s strength and character. The relationship that developed between the H/h took some time but was so delicious in the making. Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Publishing – Zebra Press for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

    Best hero in a long time

    Hugh Redvers, Baron Ramsey has been thought dead for almost two decades. Only a very few knew that he was still alive. He arrives at his late uncle's estate in time to see the aftermath of a struggle between Lady Daphne, his widowed aunt and Sir Malcolm., her cousin. There's a problem between Malcolm and Daphne, but she does not disclose what it is at this time. Lucien and Richard, Daphne's young sons take to their Cousin Hugh, especially after they find out that he's a Privateer for the King, ridding the seas of slavers traders. He has a most interesting past that I found as fascinating as Daphne and the boys did. He also, has secrets and a score to settle before he can be at peace. This is the story of a young woman who is left with her two sons after her much older husband dies. She has secrets and threats from the past that she finds hard to share. Hugh comes in with his dare devil ways and strange entourage and upsets the household in a good way. Hugh is a perfectly, imperfect hero. I loved him. There's so much more to this story. I really loved the storyline and all the details. It is a plot within a plot. Steamy love scenes. The author has taken her time with this book, researching many details that bring the story to life. It's one adventure after another and very well written. I read it all in one sitting because I needed to know what happened next. I give it a 5++. I received this book from Net Galley and Kensington Books for a honest review and no compensation otherwise. The opinions are my own.

    fabulous and well-written

    This is one of the most well-written books I've read in quite some time and I loved the unique analogies I found in it. When you read as much as I do, it can sometimes get a bit repetitive, but this one was very original. The hero of this story is Hugh, a baron-turned-pirate who has returned from the dead, complete with a mysterious past and a determination to get to know our heroine more intimately. Daphne has quite a few secrets of her own and tries to do what she sees as the right thing by staying away from Hugh, who has quite a colorful history with women, and she refuses to be another conquest for him. Hugh turned out to be one of the sweetest, most sincere heroes I've read, and was actually very likable. There was also some plotting and intrigue going on here in addition to the romance and sexual tension that made the book un-put-down-able. Highly recommended. Thank you to NetGalley and the author/publisher for the ARC!
