Summary:

Notorious pirate Barren Reed has one thing on his mind: Revenge against the man who killed his father. So kidnapping his enemy's fiancé seems a perfect plan…until he actually does it.
Larkin Lee is more than a pretty face and fiancé to a powerful man. Her fierce personality is enough to make any pirate want to push her overboard.
But when the King of the Orient comes to Barren with a task—to find the Bloodstone, a powerful gem thought only to exist in legend, Barren sees another opportunity to destroy his enemy. Together, Barren, Larkin and a crew of pirates set off to find the stone, only to discover it caused the death of Barren’s own mother and Larkin’s, too. As his strongest allies turn into his greatest enemies, and the life of the girl he kidnapped becomes more important than he ever dreamed, Barren’s quest for revenge becomes a fight to save the Orient.

Review:
All Barren Reed wants is to avenge his father and, because of that, kidnapping his enemy's fiancé seems like the best idea ever... except it isn't as good as it seemed.
People think Larkin Lee is only a pretty face and fiancé to a well-positioned man but she's so much more than that. She's fierce and she's smart and she constantly tests Barren's patience.
When the King of the Orient orders Barren to destroy the Bloodstone, a powerful token that's only supposed to be a legend, he sees another opportunity to destroy his enemy. Together Barren, Larkin and a very special crew of pirates set off to find the mythical stone, only to discover it caused the death of Barren's mother and Larkin's too.
As his allies turn into his enemies, and the life of the girl he kidnapped becomes increasingly important to him, much more than he had ever predicted, Barren's quest for revenge becomes a mission to save the Orient.
I have three words for you: pirates, sexiness, adventure. I don't think you need more than that to realise that this is a rather impressive book and I don't think you can ever go wrong with pirates, especially those who kidnap damsels that are way-way more powerful that they think.
I have to talk about Larkin! She's amazing and sexy and smart and it makes me want to read about her all the time, I really like the way she can be strong but sweet at the same time, she's the kind of character that captivates me also she's a bit of a chameleon and that's a wonderful trait to have.
Barren is the ultimate stud! He's a bad boy and he knows it, I think he has a good heart beneath all the pain that has scarred him and hurt him so deeply.
This is a great book for everyone who appreciates strong characters with an amazing adventure and even if you don't just try and read this book, you'll not be disappointed.
