Review Tour + #Giveaway: The Dangers of Loving a Rogue by Jeri Black @jeri_black @GoddessFish

The Dangers of Loving a Rogue

by Jeri Black

GENRE: Historical Romance


If not for deplorable timing, Celia Breckenridge might have avoided a pirate attack. She’s grateful for her rescuer, truly, however the stubborn man is sailing in the wrong direction! Most alarming still? The silver-eyed rogue is devilishly attractive and Celia must keep reminding herself she’s betrothed to another.

Jackson Beaumont had a plan: sail to the Caribbean; find a hidden cache of emeralds; return to society a wealthy man. Alas, he arrives in Charles Town with marauding pirates, a disgruntled heiress, and a hurricane at his heels. Rescuing the lady from pirates posed little challenge - allowing her to return to her betrothed is proving far more difficult.

But Jack won’t return to England without his fortune, and when it comes to another man’s bride, he’s not above a little plundering himself.

Kiss Horse

I should not be drinking spirits as I shall need all my wits where you are concerned.” She looked up when he remained silent. “Why are you staring at my mouth?”

A good question.


Twouldn’t do to tell her he should like to sip some sherry too—from her lips or anyplace else she’d allow him to pour it. “You feared me when we first met.”

You gave me good reason.”

I?” Jack flattened a hand over his chest. “I risked my life for you.”

Spare me the knight in shining armor drivel. My rescue was not your purpose—though a benefit, to be sure.”

“’Tis grossly unfair of you, madam. Do forgive me for arriving on a ship instead of a white charger—”

A horse wouldn’t have you, sir.”

“—to rescue your pretty hide—”

Then proceeded to accost me.”

“—and kissed you for your own protection.”

Scorn flashed in her eyes. He much preferred an angry Celia over a despondent one. This one was much more fun. “Protection? Bah. You stole the prize from under their noses and flaunted me before them.”

Would you rather I had left you?”

No.” ’Twas more of a reaction than a reply, rather like a grunt.

Fomenting her annoyance was unwise, but Jack could not resist. He touched her elbow and lowered his voice to a sultry rumble. “Shall I kiss you again? A kiss befitting a gallant knight?”

She snorted. “I should rather kiss your horse.”

My Review:

Celia Breckenridge is off to take care of her sick aunt. The ship that she is traveling on is attacked by pirates. Celia is then rescued by the very dashing Jackson Beaumont. Celia is attracted to the dashing Jackson but alas she is betrothed to another.

The Dangers of Loving a Rogue finds Celia in danger over and over as men fight over her. Pirates want to take Celia to use as they see fit but the handsome Jackson will not allow it. The Dangers of Loving a Rogue is filled with battle after battle as the men fight over Celia.

The Dangers of Loving a Rogue kept me on the edge of my seat waiting for the next battle. The Dangers of Loving a Rogue was packed full of action and drama from one page to the next with not a dull moment to be had. The characters kept me entertained throughout the story. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough as I waited to see what was around the next corner.

When I was reading The Dangers of Loving a Rogue I could see it all playing out in my head as if I was watching a movie. I could hear the waves as they splashed against the ship. I could hear each and every strike of their blades and the cannons as they were fired as well as the gunshots. It sort of reminded me of Pirates of the Caribbean.

I would recommend The Dangers of Loving a Rogue to anyone who likes reading about pirates and fighting. Grab your copy of The Dangers of Loving a Rogue today!
