Vihlok is a dashing, though somewhat unscrupulous, Sabrotine privateer. He offers a variety of less than legal services for outlandish fees. When an anonymous client asks him to kidnap a young woman during her wedding and sully her reputation so badly the groom will no longer want her, he’s intrigued.
A past indiscretion leaves Rana Jabulayni little choice but to accept an unwanted marriage. Yet one night alone with her fiancé convinces Rana anything is better than being bartered as part of a trade agreement. Seeing no other option, Rana arranges her own kidnapping.
Vihlok has dreamed of repaying the corrupt House of Jabulayni for their utter indifference to his people ever since the war ended. A quirk of fate has left his enemy at his mercy and the day of reckoning is long overdue. Hoping to shock and scandalize the sheltered princess, Vihlok agrees to kidnap/rescue her. But Princess Rana is not nearly as sheltered as Vihlok presumes and erotic heat soon turns to something deeper.
Pirate’s Price is an erotic novella which does not fail to disappoint on the eroticism or the fast-paced plot. Rana is a woman who wants to restore her kingdom to the greatness it once was, but her mother would never see that happen. Instead, Rana agrees to marry Vega in exchange for her mother getting the financial support she needs for her kingdom. It’s a price she is willing to pay, until she has to prove her sexual compatibility to Vega and his lover.
Vihlok’s family once ruled, before Rana’s family took their reign and their lives from them. As the last living member of his family he remains under the radar as a businessman/pirate. He has only two rules: no kidnappings and no assassinations, but when the price is too large to walk away from he agrees to the kidnapping of Rana. A kidnapping she arranged herself, though the last cause in the contract was completely unknown to her…irreversibly sully her reputation through direct or indirect means, and it was one he planned to take full advantage of.
This is one book that was hard to put down. My advice is to start reading it early so you can finish it before night falls and takes your now sullied mind to new and interesting dream-filled places.
My Favorite Aspect: Rana’s curiosity and Vihlok’s desire to help her explore it.
I liked that this book was fast paced, which kept me reading well into the night. Rana and Vihlok’s chemistry is just HOT and he is willing to give her any fantasy that she desires.
Who would not love that?
Overall, we both give this 4 stars!
