    • Exciting Story of Love Among the Smugglers of Rye with Pirates, Sea Captains and a Wonderful HeroineSet in 1810, this exciting story is rich in history of the Napoleonic era and the smugglers that made Rye, England famous. It’s also the story of Tess Leighton, impoverished by her father’s debts, who becomes the leader of the Rye smugglers to feed the people and take care of her ancestral home, which is falling down around her.By night, she runs a dangerous game, one step ahead of the governm [...]


    • I can't read this. An old school romance which, unfortunately, shows its age.I can't get through the 'you-know-you-want-it-you-know-you'll-love-it' attitude of the male in the story while he pushes himself on the woman. She says some of the stupidest dialogue - calling the guy a blackguard. That took me out of the story faster than an earthquake.And as for him, I've read enough of his growling, his manhood and the ridiculous near-seduction of the woman while she is half-asleep. Sorry - bailed at [...]


    • This book was the fifth book i have ever read just for the pleasure of it. But from the moment you start you cant let it down. You fall instantly into the story and totally inlove with the characters. I loved it so much I have actually read it more than once.


    • Just finished and there was a lot that I didn't like about this story. It felt all over the place and it got worse as the story went on. Here's a few questions that I came up throughout the story.1. What happened to Tess to give her nightmares?2. How did Dane learn all he did? I wanted some more from his view and his story during all of this.3.Who was that old lady on the island? any relation? also who was that pregnant woman that was mentioned?There are probably more but so much is going throug [...]


    • I decided not to finish this book. I don't normally do that, but it was so far fetched I decided not to waste more of my time.


    • Note by the author that this book was "Published by Dell in 1991 as THE BLACK ROSE - This ebook edition has been extensively revised to better reflect the author's original vision." Since I have never read the original book, "The Black Rose," I do wonder if some parts of "Seven Nights with a Pirate" might have been more easily understood had I read the original work. As I was reading, I couldn't help but feel as though I was missing out on vital parts of the story.Background: Viscount Ravenhurst [...]


    • Seven Nights With A PirateLove and adventure always keeps the reader entertained. The hero and heroin are perfect for each other. Tess is headstrong and brave smuggling to make her way alone. Then Dane com's back from war with Napoleon and spying still for the Government. His mission was to stop the transfer of gold by an English traitor and to stop the Romney Fox from her smuggling of brandy and silks. He believes the Fox to be a man and the traitor he is seeking.


    • I was hoping for a revival from Christina Skye (my high hopes were quickly dashed with Defiant Captive), and my hopes were answered and still denied (this was quite rare) with this novel choked full of mysterious settings, equipped with characters who are not what they appear. Dane (AKA Viscount Ravehurst) is on the surface, your typical brooding alpha hero. But we soon learn that upon his return from a war, he lost both parents and his fiancee; if that doesn't make you sad, the reason he and th [...]


    • A tough, sexy, but vulnerable hero that needs to learn to trust again blended with a pirate’s adventures upon a moonlit sea is the perfect match for spirited Tess Leighton. Determined to resolve her father’s debt issues, Tess begins her secret “other” life during the shadows of the night. A spy and a pirate are destined to clash, and despite fiery passion that soars between them, betrayal and suspicion loom on the horizon. The stakes are high as Tess stands to lose everything, including [...]


    • The book was alright but I didn't understand why both characters hate each other so much. Both characters had a previous history (I think the time spam was 5 years)where they were in love and they loved each other a lot. However, they didn't go further because the male character Dane saw the female character Tess with another man. Tess is a poor aristocrat and she is involve in contraband in order to keep her home. I didn't like the way both characters treat each other, I mean it was cruel and D [...]


    • I had a really hard time with this book. I fully admit I actually didn't read the whole thing, I skimmed a lot of sections. I just couldn't seem to get into the characters.The plot line was fantastic but it was hard to believe a man who hates woman as much as Dane St. Pierre does/did could ever be anything other than a massive jerk. I think it would have been easier to get through and finish if his "hatred" had been turned down to a more understandable margin.I love Christina Skye books but this [...]


    • This book is cheesy beyond all reason (and I've read a lot of cheesy romance novels in my short years). But it's the fact that it is so cheesy that makes it so fun. If you can suspend reality for a moment and just ride on the wave of cheese when you open the pages of this book, you're more likely to enjoy it. It has more clichés than 10 young adult novel series put together. I guess you could say it's one of my guilty pleasures.


    • I didn't really liked this book.The book ended without explanation about anything that happened 5 years ago - it was as it had never happened - all the pain, betrayal and loneliness was just forgotten after it was mentioned all the time. I wanted one day of rest with a nice book and now I feel like I've ruined my day with this book.


    • I was enthralled with this book from the beginning. I loved the H and h and also the mystery involved. It kept me up late to finish and I did not figure out the villain until the page before he was exposed. Great read and highly recommended.



    • I liked this book. Mainly a historical romance but well written and a nice mystery-action story Reminded me of Brenda Joyce's books (the de warenne series).


    • Bodice ripper novella Sometimes you just need a good read of some old fashion historical romance. this one did the trick for awhile.


    • This is such an erotic book, however it may be a difficult read for some due to it's many rape scenes and the romance between a woman and her abuser.
