Bold Pirate Eludes Her Carefully Set Trap, She Suddenly Finds Herself The Prisoner Of The Irresistible Criminal They Call Master Of Seduction Once Trapped In Jack S Intoxicating Gaze, Lorelei Feels Herself Falling Under The Handsome Rogue S Sensuous Spell And Now The Terror Of The High Seas Faces The One Peril He Never Anticipated For Though He Has Stolen So Many Hearts, He Never Dreamed He D Meet A Woman Who Could So Effortlessly Conquer His Own My review contains spoilers and they re mostly my thoughts as I went with the book This one s got 2 parts.Well well well, I like this book I did have some empty moments in the beginning regarding the heroine and her activities but now, it s beginning to look like a fun ride The story begins with a journal entry from some lady mentioning the name of pirate captain Black Jack Rhys, who is the terror of high seas I don t know if that woman was kidnapped or went willingly but in her entry, she mentions she d really like to keep that spectacular specimen of manliness as her own after reading the book, I d too but she had to be happy with only one night with him In the entry, she also says that Jack Rhys is the best of lovers but no woman shall ever have him his heart.Enter Lorelei, a smart, fun loving girl The year is 1780, The Colonies Lorelei is her father s only girl, just got engaged to her longtime crush Justin, who s a British army officer I liked her vivacity, even though her comparison of males with dogs sounded absurd, I found it funny She s a brunette, not classically beautiful but attractive nonetheless In her engagement party, she met Count Arnauf and is immediately attracted to him They dance and make nice conversations but it turned into a bit of a heated word exchange after the count started making negative remarks on Justin He leaves soon after Gotta mention, I was a bit irritated at her vacillation, seemed like she d only got engaged to Justin because he didn t really look at her that way and she took it as a challenge to make herself known I don t know how she managed it but the feat was done, now she thinks they re in love with each other It s also mentioned that Justin has roving eyes But, Lorelei thinks there is no man on earth she can t wrap around her little fingers Hmm, well, good luck with that Then, I had no idea why Justin took her to that inn since his men were searching for the pirate captain and it s dangerous for sure All these made me think these two doesn t actually care much for each other, at least not Justin There the count appears, this time in a very casual dress up and saves Lorelei from a lech who taking her as a tavern wench, was about to rape her Wait a minute, did I mention she was disguised as one to bring information for Justin, who was waiting in that same tavern Anyway, she recognized the count immediately but he denies knowing her Lorelei knows he s lying and then it poped in her brain It s the pirate captain they re searching for A bit too sure of herself, if I might say and she was, which leads to a little scene as she and Justin debate on whether or not it was Black Jack It s then, Jack decides to abduct her and in the process, got shot in his arm by Justin.Jack wants vengeance I still don t what it is that Justin s family have done to him but it s bad and he hates them with all his being But, overall he s not as bloodthirsty as he s portrayed everywhere The women are crazy about him He knows it, just as he knows he s too good looking to pass Jack is tall, muscular, has long blonde hair with steely gray eyes He uses his charms to it s fullest when it s necessary I should ve found it damned irritating and the journal entry should ve pissed me off but amazingly it didn t I like Jack he s confident, smart He s honest and soft as eggshells inside, even though he doesn t show it You know, something to do with manliness and stuffs p Nevertheless, theI got to know about him, theI thought he s full of fun and caring Although, abducting Lorelei was a part of that vengeance, he s also attracted to her I also like Lorelei because she wouldn t give in so easily to his dubious charms , as she herself phrases it She s full of spunk and gives it back word for word, no less Soon, they start exchanging banters which I was enjoying immensely Once, Jack makes her confuse Justin s name with something else and man, that was so unexpected and funny And all the time, he s thinking of how soon he can show her his cough banana cough no comments here p The scene and incidents that lead to that innuendo were really fine Lorelei confesses to him that she wants to be an artist and Jack obliges her with painting tools He also kinda forces her to make him the subject matter, after knowing she mostly paints fruits Man, I loooove their banters and a few innuendos Jack makes in those because most of the times, he s pretty straightforward about wanting Lorelei in his bed.Lorelei soon finds out Jack isn t what he makes others believe He s well learned, can quote Shakespeare just as herself He has a 11yrs old son Kit, who, it was later revealed is basically a charity case But, he treats the boy as his own, gave him his name He even built and curved Kit a wardrobe himself, so sweet Unless Jack told her the secret himself, Lorelei wouldn t have guessed the truth because nobody else knows about Kit s past Also, Jack lets some of the sailors wives stay with them and treat them all cordially Then there was this journal entry not the one I mentioned above, this was Jack s own , in which Lorelei finds out some stuffs about him All these incidents soon makes her soften up towards him But there is one problem, Jack doesn t believe in love He never stays with a woman long enough for her to fall in love with him, not to mention he never fell for anyone in his life He s the son of a prostitute who worked in some Caribbean bordello This is a truth he s brutally honest with He tells Lorelei all that andSoon they find themselves not only attracted to each other but in a very warm and genuine companionship What started out as a competition a challenge for Jack to seduce her and for Lorelei, fight him somehow, then to make him fall in love with her, turns into something intense and deep Now, Jack is trying hard to keep his hands off her the kisses were blazing , while Lorelei is scared that, in the act of making him fall for her, she might do the opposite and find herself madly in love with him Lorelei knows better because her grandma also fell in the spell of a pirate in her days and bore him a daughter, Lorelei s mother But, he either never married her or got killed before marrying her not sure but all her life, Lorelei s grandma suffered for it and always cautioned her to never trust a man who excites her, settle always for the safer ones Always be wary of pirates, specially if he s called Jack You can guess, her grandfather s name was Jack as well I found this part quite intriguing It seems Lorelei s grandma Anne was the one who truly cared for her She s the one who encouraged Lorelei s dream to become an artist, taught her how to wield a sword And, it was also she who gave Lorelei advices on men Lorelei s always remembering those as she continues her communication with Jack And, Jack is confused with the kind of emotions she inspires in him because he doesn t know what to do with it.PS Still don t know Lorelei s eye color I usually don t like it when one of the characters who s engaged, is being intimate with someone else, even if it s the h h Here, I don t really find it that bad since Jack is muchfun and Justin wouldn t be a competition for him anyway I know it sounds funny but I m now confused about Lorelei s hair color It was hair as dark and rich as mahogany with golden streaks laced through in the first chapter, then it was red, now it s auburn I know mahogany isn t auburn ermm, well Never mind, it doesn t matter since never got to know her eye color throughout the story I m saying all these because it s important for me that I imagine the characters well Here, Jack was much muchvividly described there is a particularly yummy as he was sleeping scene fans herself than Lorelei so I m kinda confused.Anyway, what s most important here is, this is my first Kinley MacGregor aka Sherrilyn Kenyon book And, I really enjoyed it Didn t matter that in the end she tried to smooth things out all over, making villains look good I mean, I had my guesses to what Jack s relationship with Justin s father was and it was correct The back story of how he came to be what he is today was really heartbreaking and what that man did to him and his mother is totally unforgivable Justin s father, Major Willingford is a shallow, coward of a man and didn t deserve Jack s forgiveness But, that s only me talking because I really loved Jack and would kick anyone who dares to hurt him I would ve lovedcharacter explorations on him I was so interested that in the end, it felt like I m only seeing the charming part of him and not the strong, bold man who lead a pirate gang to enormous success Oh, there were glimpses here and there but I wasn t satisfied entirely His relationship with Lorelei I enjoyed tremendously When they were together bantering, sharing their life stories, making love, I can just feel that they belong to one another The fact that Jack used to be a er, rake didn t matter to me, which was amazing Ms Kenyon convinced me well that Jack didn t want that kind of a life but had no other choice, for life gave him none It was just too hard for him to believe that some decent girl like Lorelei would ever love him unconditionally because his experiences with women so far were only give and take stuff in bed nothing , nothing less He even explains Lorelei in one scene that he s always been careful about his partners I m not sure what kind but guessing widows and stuffs as he knew from being brought up in a brothel that otherwise, he d contract foul diseases For some reasons I didn t find it yuky lolz Jack is just this way, a man born a charmer but not an empty headed, lazy a manwhore, whose pastime is screwing women around Now, as I mentioned before, Lorelei did confuse me time and again, mostly when she wasn t with Jack I had empty moments with her when she was thinking of Justin and her feelings for him Later when she and Jusin reunited, I did want to scream how can you say you love both menYah, she implied she loved them both Seriously The other things in the book I enjoyed was the secondary characters including some of the crew members, their wives and their interactions together Also, Jack s affections for his adoptive son Kit I liked reading about Lorelei s grandma Anne s story As far as I can understand she was quite notorious for her life with a pirate and bearing him an illegitimate child.And, Jack did believe in love only what it s done to his mother and put them both through made him deny it for the most of his life But, Lorelei took the challange and changed it I did feel their last misunderstanding was unnecessary but then again, the way Jack proposed to her afterwards was ermm, very poetic Oh, I do like Jack verry much a poem Shakespeare quoting Pirate, who s as handsome as sin and as generous and kind Last scene between the two were as usual funny and so heartwarming I really hoped forof him Ah well, now I m very very eager to read the next book of the series A solid 4 stars but don t let it fool you It s a good book, I would ve give it a 4 rating if it met all my expectations Oh I agree Lorelei, Jack has become my favorite fruit too p Except for the cover having a man with dark hair, I found this book to be fantastic I love it So much You have the bad boy hero, the woman who has attitude, and high seas adventures Even the ending didn t get all mushy I want to write about it on my blog, but since I am not complaining I just stare at the blank page and say gosh that was good Hmmm, quite possibly the best book with a pirate that i have read so far And that is saying a lot b c I have read a Julie Garwood book with a pirate and you know how much I love her book s This was my first book by Kinley MacGregor of course I m no stranger to Sherrilyn Kenyon , and I was pleasantly surprised I did catch her using some phrases that were worded in a way that fit swith our time, not the late 1700 s, but it did not distract too much from the story And some of the things that Loralei was so curious about were not explored as much as I thought should have been But I love Jack, even though he was so sure of himself, but in a charming sort of way He can kidnap me anytime he wants to Oh my Jack Rhys, you rediculously sexy man This book was amazing Jack is such a great hero I wasn t sure if I would like the whole Pirate thing But I was really surprised with this book Jack meets Lorelei and her fathers party He s in desguise And she is imediately distracted from her boring fiance Justin Justin uses Lorelei to try and identify Jack She succeeds, but no one will believe that the man she points out is really Jack Jack is also intrigued by her and quickly devises a plan that will benefit his own interest in her, and help to draw Justins father to him Who he plans to have his vengence on So he takes her hostage But she very quickly thanks to Jack and his outrageous charms forgets that she is a hostage and starts to enjoy herself I loved their equal arrogance She believes she can reign him in, make him bend to her will and confess his undying love for her And he believes that he can literally charm her knickers right off her body, and suduce her into his bed Let the fun begin It was hilarious watching them both struggle every minute they were in eachothers company Dying to just rip eachothers clothes off, but not willing to be the one to give in It went on long enough to be highly amusing but not too long that it bacame a just shag and get it over with already lol There was a great storyline that flowed nicely through out the book Like reading about Jack s son Kit Being introduced to many of Jacks crew and their wives Most of all it was slowly learningandabout Jack and his past I was truly astonished that he has become the incredible man that he was in this book Given some of the soul wrenching things he has had to live with There is a big reveal at the end of the book that I did kind of see coming but it was still good The only very small problem I had with this book was the very rapid ending It seemed like the author just decided to finish it and wrapped it up in like 5 pages But that I can most deffinately live with Great story, I will deffinatly be buying the next book in this series. This book totally caught me off guard I needed to read it to complete a challenge but didn t expect much from it due to the cover art I thought it would end up being some terrible old fashion bodice ripper novel that I couldn t finish fast enough Oh how wrong I was This story is actually very enjoyable.Now it s not a super complex book or anything but it holds a certain charm and an element of fun that keeps things from being stagnant and boring Master of Seduction is basically a sweet romantic comedy with lots of witty repartee and pirates Arr Anyways, it all begins with a young woman named Lorelei Dupree One evening while trying to help her fianc catch a known criminal, she gets kidnapped by said criminal and then unfortunately becomes his captive as they set out on the high seas.The villain in this situation is one very handsome pirate captain named Black Jack Rhys He s supposedly a cold hearted killer that needs to be stopped and hung for his crimes But he has no intention of being caught Jack decides to use Lorelei as a pawn to draw out Lord Wallingford, her fianc s father, so he can kill him There s a lot of bad blood between those two Biding his time until he can make his move, Jack is now patiently waiting for his chance at vengeance while trying to keep Lori from escaping or doing something foolish Now as you can probably guess the two start to grow on each other during this lull Slowly but surely what starts as a mere attraction, mixed with irritation, turns into somethingDuring a voyage full of adventure, mystery, camaraderie, suspense and quips, romance predictably blossoms between Lorelei and Jack These two character compliment one another very well and many of their interactions keep the story from becoming dull They have great chemistry It s a heartwarming and worthwhile romance The pacing of the plot and the way things play out is excellent I don t feel that the story was too long or too short The side characters were also decent and helped add life to the tale I really liked Henri Everyone was entertaining and seemed to have their own unique personality which really helped add depth and complexity to the story Overall I d have to say that I adored this book Don t let the godawful cover fool you It s well worth the read The ending was a bit surprising and almost a little too good to be true but considering how there was always a mild undercurrent of cheese that pervades this story then I don t think it s too far of a stretch for things to turn out how they did Personally I am a fan of happy endings so that was really just the icing on the cake for me Lori finally getting her fella put a dopey grin on my face Love conquers all, even black hearted pirates. Master of Seduction is a pirate tale about Black Jack Rhys and the beautiful upper crust Lorelei Dupree In an attempt to get his revenge on his enemy Lord Wallingford, Jack kidnaps Wallingford s future daughter in law Lorelei Lori is a strong willed and fearless girl who is trapped in a proper world she rebels against constantly and yet still manages to stay in When Lori gets taken she fears what will happen to her but finds herself unable to be anything but strong with Jack They begin a relationship filled with amusing bickering and intense sexual tension I loved this book and it has become one of my favourites Lorelei is a strong, cheeky female who I loved every minute of the book She has a rebellious streak and can t help but stand up to those around her She has grown up being taught that all pirates are savage, evil men and that no good happens where they are concerned, though once she spends some time on Jack s ship she starts to realise that these stories my just be wrong Jack is the man of every girls dreams, he is sexy and strong but still sensitive and cares about others even if he won t admit it I loved his attitude towards the world and the way he treated his adopted son Kit The dynamic between the two main characters was fun and you enjoy every minute of their interaction This book is great for anyone looking for an easy read with some fun, swash buckling moments and plenty of romance. Master of Seduction G MacGregor, Kinley aka Sherrilyn Kenyon 2nd in Sea Wolf seriesAll lovely Lorelei Dupree had in mind was helping her fiance and the city of Charlseton by setting a trap for the infamous pirate Black Jack Rhys She certainly never intended to let him kidnap her And she most definitely had no intention of losing her heart to a man so skilled in the arts of love that they called him the master of seduction.Black Jack Rhys had a score to settle with an old enemy.Kidnapping his adversary s fiancee seemed like the perfect answer But the man who d won the hearts of a thousand women hadn t counted on falling in love himself.very enjoyable a few hot scenes Fun story about two equally stubborn people Jack is a pirate, bent on revenge against the man responsible for a good friend s death He has the reputation of a ruthless pirate and an expert seducer of women Lorelei is the belle of Charleston and recently engaged to her childhood friend and crush, Justin Wallingford.The story opens with Lorelei bragging to her friends about her ability to charm any man and to get her way in anything she wants At the same time, Jack has arrived in disguise, looking for information to further his plans for revenge Lorelei catches his eye, and he asks her to dance For a few moments, the sparks fly between them, leaving Lorelei attracted and confused before Jack disappears.The next night Justin has succeeded in getting Lorelei to help him with his plans to set a trap for Jack, with Lorelei playing the part of a barmaid in a waterfront tavern I was disgusted with Justin at this point What man willingly puts the woman he supposedly loves in that kind of danger Worse, he doesn t believe her at first when she identifies the man I rather enjoyed Jack s spur of the moment decision to take Lorelei hostage and carry her back to the ship He told himself it was to ensure that the senior Wallingford followed, but there was definitely a personal interest there too Lorelei is furious andthan a little scared she s heard the stories about what Jack is capable of.I really enjoyed the development of Jack and Lori s relationship The sparks between them were strong from the beginning, as was the connection I loved seeing Lori stand up to him, even when she was scared It was pretty funny to see him get all offended when she accused him of planning to rape her That was just the first of the things that soon had Lori realizing that there wasto Jack than his reputation.Jack is also known for his reputation with women, and he is determined to get Lori into his bed He makes it clear that that is all he wants he makes no promises and doesn t believe in love Lori is determined to resist and makes a bet with Jack that she can have him on his knees declaring his love before he can get her into bed What neither realizes at the time is that they are both in danger of losing their hearts There are some very terrific scenes of the two of them together, getting to know each other Jack finds himself wanting to do little things to make her happy and comfortable, though the idea of a pirate ship stocked with fancy linens and furniture was a bit hard to believe I also loved the scene where Lori stumbled onto Jack when he was asleep, with only the essentials covered up Her fascination led her to try to recreate what she saw in a sketch, and a hilarious attempt to complete the picture I enjoyed seeing them grow closer, neither one wanting to admit that their feelings were involved The question became, what would happen when the Wallingfords and the English navy caught up with them The ending was quite satisfying, with a couple of unexpected twists.I also enjoyed the secondary characters Jack s son Kit was pretty adorable in his mix of boy and young man I loved the way that he worshipped Jack, which was a good indication of Jack s true character I also loved the other members of the crew, from the truly salty pirates to the men like Henri and Tarik It was also unusual to see so many women on a pirate ship, and I liked the way they made Lori a part of their group so easily.The whole revenge theme was interesting I could see Jack s determination because of what was done to his foster father mentor But it was also clear that there wasto it than that It didn t take too long to suspect the other cause, and I wondered how that was going to play out I must admit that I found Admiral Wallingford to be less admirable than I had hoped, but he did redeem himself somewhat at the end. Oh Lord And to think I bought all the books in this series 6 total I think I hope they at least get a little better because this one was bad One day I ll learn my lesson and buy one book at a time, but I thought since Sherrilyn Kenyon she writes as Kinley MacGregor wrote these they would be good, but this one was not.
