    The motha of all pirate romances @ her best, MC writes swashbuckling adventures & knee-buckling bangin’ like nobody's business. A shipload of adrenaline-pumping actions, epic boom-boom battles, political intrigue, backstabbing villain, 2ndary characters w/ memorable personalities, shexy, blue-eyed divorcee hero vs feisty, auburn-haired, ass-kicking heroine who’ll chop off vital parts if anyone dares to mess w/ her, crackalicious chemistry & great build-up to toe-curling luv scenes, be it in the cramped cabin or 30-feet above the gun deck, the perils of pleasure are tested to the limits. Simon Dante aka the Pirate Wolf is 1 hawt tamale, when he raises his flag to full mast, U might as well drop your weeping pants & let him have it. Isabeau is 1 of da best heroines evah penned, a talented helms(wo)man, stiletto thrower & cartographer (known as the Black Swan). I want wot she’s having ! My fav 2ndary character is Beau’s frank-talking dad, he’s friggin’ heelarious ! Every character & action-packed scene comes alive, U feel like U get thrown into the midst of battle & when the fog clears up, your mind will still be reeling w/ excitement. U can see how committed MC was to every distinctive character & her luv for the sea was apparent in her great visualizations. I may take up sailing after re-reading all her pirate books haha... Sometimes U read a book w/ imbalance of power between H/h, not so in this case. Both H/h go toe-to-toe in sparkly zingers & their athleticisms in the nookie dept are awesome. The only complaint if I were being nitpicky ? Well, I wanted the climax to be longer, I’m not talking ‘bout La petite mort, but the bloody showdown between Simon vs the villain, wish their final swordplay was a tad longer ‘cuz I luv parry & thrust a la “The count of Monte Cristo”. Simply unforgettable. What U see is what U get.

    Re-read for challenge 2019. Keeper!
    Wish I could add one more star..loved it better the second time!

    There are a lot of really good pirate romances out there to read, and they usually start off with the hero-Captain/Pirate who is ruthless & cunning, saving, capturing, and kidnapping the Heroine.. be she "demure" or "spitfire hellion".
    My favorite to read is when said "he" arrogant pirate meets his match with said "she" pirate.
    The story opens with Captain Dante & his crew who have nearly lost their lives as well as the ship due to being betrayed by his partner.
    When all seems lost Captain Spence, his crew & his daughter "Beau" come upon the badly damaged ship.
    Dante trusting no one, now takes control of their ship so he can transfer his precious cargo before it sinks with his ship.
    There is much sparring between the captains, and Beau they & their crew set out to help Dante to find his betrayer & reap the rewards.
    This author sure knows how to tell about battles at sea, the way she describes them throughout the book was like being there.
    You could feel the recoil of the cannons, and smell the gunpowder, the masts above as they splinter when fired upon.
    What follows is lots of swashbuckling adventure!
    Most of all, great chemistry between two fiery souls, the secondary characters were also fun,
    The history was very informative and the story behind Queen Elizabeth & her "sea hawks" & the time period itself was very interesting.
    I'm looking forward to reading the 2nd book in the series The Iron Rose (Dante Pirates, #2) by Marsha Canham
    Highly recommend for those who love a good swashbuckling pirate romance.

    Sometimes even free is too expensive - DNF at 18%.

    At this point the 'hero' has already threatened to rape and/or kill the heroine about three times. On top of this - as if I needed any more reason to hate him - they've also had a conversation in which he systematically refused to take her anger seriously and treat her as if she had any agency, which I've dealt with in real life enough to find it infuriating even in fiction. And he's threatened to cripple her already-injured father. Quite frankly, he's disgusting and I'm revolted at the high ratings this book has gotten from other GR-ers. The rape threat should really be a dealbreaker in a 'romance' novel, people!

    Deleting this 'book' as fast as I can.

    Honestly, I don’t quite know how to begin this review, or what to rate it. First off, this was my first book by this author. It was suggested for a buddy read, and I love lots of action and adventure in my historical romances, and this had lots of promise. There were parts of this novel I adored! And then there were parts that held no interest to me whatsoever. Granted, I did not find it boring in the least. In my opinion, it seemed like two different books in a mash-up. Both good in their own rights, but maybe not quite working together, for me anyways.

    Simon Dante is a ruthless privateer who has been betrayed and is left for dead after successfully raiding Spanish holdings. He and his crew are barely hanging on, when Captain Jonas Spence and his ship, Egret, come aboard to offer assistance. Dante forcefully takes control of Spence’s ship, but later explains his reasoning, desperate times for desperate measures, you understand, right? Shortly after everyone on board the Egret gets along, except for Simon and Spence’s headstrong and helmsman daughter, Isabeau, or Beau. In the process, they successfully raid a floating Spanish treasure trove, with royalty on board. They run into an English flotilla headed by none other than Sir Francis Drake, and the traitor Simon wants dead (by all rights). Simon, Beau, the Egret, and Drake’s bunch all decide to attack Spanish ports to hamper a war between the two countries, one that England is determined to avoid and the Spanish is gearing up for.

    Let me start by saying this: I will try several more books by this author before giving up. I may never give up on this author, even if the plots or characters don’t work for me. Ms. Canham is a master of words. One thing I cannot stand is a boring book. What I mean by that is I don’t want just words on the page. If you’re a writer, you write books. If you’re a story-teller, I will not only see the story in my mind’s eye, I will find it the most beautiful, the most fascinating and the most detailed story and love every minute of it. I may not have loved everything about this book, but I can tell you this, the story-telling is excellent. It’s not overdone, it’s simple but effective, and leaves me wanting more. The pictures she paints with words is almost beyond comparison, in fact, I think it may be difficult to compare with anyone right now. One of my favorite passages was at the end:

    “Beau watched the Scout make her stumbling turn and start a bow-on run towards the Talon. She was expecting Dante to veer off at the last moment, duplicating the feat he has executed against the San Pedro, but something went mortally wrong. Even from three hundred yards away she could hear the screaming of timbers and the smashing of planks as the two ships collided. The hull of the Talon was rammed inward. The privateer staggered and reeled over, pushing a wave of water off her starboard beam. When she righted herself, the Scout was wedged fast amidships and Dante’s men were scrambling over the side, cutlasses, pikes, and muskets in hand. Two of the four kegs of Greek fire found their marks, exploding on the Talon’s afterdeck in great sheets of liquid flame. The combustible ran along the rails and dripped down the sides of the hull. It fanned across the decks, rippling blue and gold and red in the darkness, running along planks and spilling hot blue fingers between the broken boards.”

    Of course, I think the last battle scene is the best part of the book, it’s where all the action is! The scenes come alive, and I felt like I was right there, or at least maybe I was watching a movie. A really good, special effects-type movie!

    The battle scenes were great, but this is supposed to be a romance book as well. While there is a hero/heroine in the book, two sets actually, I didn’t feel it was the focus. I didn’t love the main characters, ever. I began to like them about half way through, but nothing ever clicked between me and them. I tried for days to figure out why this book wasn’t grabbing me between the action scenes. Today, I finally figured it out: dialogue. It’s missing a lot of dialogue for my taste. I can understand animal attraction, and wanting to jump the sexy wolf pirate’s bones from the get-go, but there had better be substance to the relationship, or I get bored. There were not a lot of scenes where Simon and Beau were not going after each other in one way or another, either arguing or sexually, or both. There were no real revelations, although things were revealed, sort of cold heartedly or with no oomph behind it. No true anguish or emotions, or not very many from Beau, and hardly any from Simon. I want a little angst in my romances. It just felt a little flat to me, and I was sorely disappointed. My thinking is I just didn’t really like Simon or Beau together, apart, they were fairly interesting characters, Beau more so, but together something was amiss. Now, I have confidence in Ms. Canham for future books, because even though they didn’t have many pages, the scenes between Geoffrey Pitt and Dona Maria/Christiana were great. I wanted to read more about them!! I think this book would have been better suited to them being the main characters, and wish Ms. Canham could have made a whole book for them. The things between them that made them interesting, such as Christiana pretending to be Dona Maria, and not telling Geoffrey, Geoffrey feeling less than deserving because he was not noble blood and she supposedly was, differing religions, hell, warring countries, would have made a more interesting relationship to dig into. As it stands, the only thing going for Simon and Beau is that he’s arrogant and she’s stubborn, and after awhile, this gets annoying to me. I don’t really understand why Beau is so stubborn, because she’s been sailing with her father’s vessel for I think it said, 8 years, and no one challenges her on his ship anymore, not until Simon comes aboard. I can see being stubborn to him, but it still got a little old for me.

    When it came to the actually plot, I think it was well thought out, but lacked a little in the personal details of the main characters. I read this on ebook, and it was 317 pages. I think 25-50 more pages, going into further details about the characters, just as much as she did with the battle scenes and describing the ships, and I would have still read it all, and probably found it more enjoyable, and given it a better rating.

    All this being said, I will read more of Marsha Canham, I see she has a Robin Hood series, and that has me thrilled to my toes! Loved the story telling, but I needed a bit more soul to the characters, and this would have been a 5 star book instead of a 3 1/2 stars I am giving it.

    I love me some pirates.

    Our heroine doesn't hide, she's the helmsman of the privateer/merchant ship, and an expert in map making. Plus she once gelded an over-eager suitor. What's not to love?

    The story is set in the Caribbean and off the coast of Spain during the tense times leading up to war between England and Spain over who would control the riches of the New World. There are double-crosses and clever strategies and heroic choices all around.

    Of course, the repartee is first-rate, and everyone swears like a sailor. Secondary characters were fun, as were a couple of humorous moments in the middle of battle (view spoiler)

    Simon Dante, a French count with a British mother, prefers to spend his time on the deck of his ship, Virago, battling the Spanish on the high seas, instead of being a man of leisure in the court of Queen Elizabeth. Then one day, he's betrayed by his fellow sea hawk and left to die in the circle of six Spanish zabras.
    Dante and his crew put up a fight, remaining afloat long enough for a merchant ship, Egret, to sail by, captained by Jonas Spence and helmed by the man's daughter, Isabeau "Beau" Spence.

    Sparks fly immediately between Dante and Beau, mostly thanks to the "unorthodox" way his crew come to stay on board the Egret, and later due to the palpable attraction between them. But they've both been burned before, so trust doesn't come easily...Even as they sail toward England and embark on a quest to help Sir Francis Drake in ruining King Philip's plans of war.

    I love Marsha Canham's books. Simply love them. The narration is evocative, painting incredible vivid pictures of characters and their surroundings no matter which era the story is set in. This one was no different...The sea was brilliantly blue, the storms frighteningly loud, the battles at sea gripping (you could smell the gunpowder and hear the thunderous roar of cannons), and the battle of wits between the two sexes intriguing, engrossing and inspiring even though the outcome was predictable.

    The set-up might sound formulaic—Marsha Canham always pits two headstrong leads against one another with the hero always towering over the heroine, at the peak of physical condition, dark, handsome and extremely arrogant and his heroine loving to antagonize him, matching him word for word as they both try to fight the passion and attraction blazing between them—but each story is an entity of its own (even if they're part of series or trilogies) with characters so distinctly different (albeit similar in physical descriptions), and romantic couples never encountering obstacles and woes similar to those before them (except for the fighting against the inevitable part), that the reader notices the initial formula or template, and then promptly forgets about it as they're swept along.

    This story was no different. Both Simon and Beau were strong, self-sufficient characters, stubborn and afraid to trust the unknown, but they both became even stronger as a couple. Their verbal battles were amusing and rather arousing as they served as foreplay for what was to come. But even as they succumbed to the inevitable, they never lost those individual character traits that made them tick, keeping up with the battles of wits and words long after their fates were already set.
    I loved them separately and I loved them together; the sparring and the loving equally wonderful to read.

    Then there was the supporting cast (with an additional romance thrown into the mix) with two motley crews of seamen, friends and confidantes, a father talking to his daughter about itches that might need to be scratched, a hulking Cimaroon with his two gleaming scimitars, a gunman with unsteady sea legs constantly falling in love...And added to all that was Sir Francis freaking Drake.

    The action sequences were breathtaking and intense, culminating in the singeing the King of Spain's beard in the port of Cadiz serving as backdrop to a much smaller battle brewing in the peripheral vision since the prologue.

    This book offers a remarkable mix of a wonderful cast of characters, intense battle sequences, and a delightfully epic romance.

    So this really should have been 4 stars

    Really. It should have been four fricking stars. Why? Naval battles, adventure, a story well told. I loved that all. I mean it took me awhile to get in to it, but once the adventure started, it was awesome. It's more of a historical fiction than a romance. In fact, the romance seemed secondary to the adventure which is all fine a good.

    My issues? Well, hide your eyes if you're squeamish. Runny vaginas. Pouty vaginas. Are you fricking kidding me. Hey, I know, let's anthropomorphize a damned vagina. Because one of those can pout. Ohhhhhh, what the hell is that? I. Just. Can't. And runny? Wow. That's an awesome sex scene right there, not. You might as well have said "moist vagina. Girl, whoever taught you to write a sex scene needs to be spanked with a runny vagina.

    If I ever, ever, read another Canham book, I'd like a sign that says - sex scene upcoming, skip pages x through xx so I do not ever have subject myself to a crying, running, overly moist vagina scene ever again.

    Both this book and the sequel - The Iron Rose - are on my top ten most highly recommended historical romances list. I was never much of a fan of pirate romances - especially lady pirate romances. Remember Fern Michaels "Captive" series? Ack!
    Unfortunately, that series all too easily comes to mind when I think of any sort of pirate book. The mere mention of "lady pirate books" would have me diving for cover behind the potted palms. After a long hiatus from Historical romance of any sub-genre, I started reading them again just a few years ago, and on the basis of a great review from The Romance Reader, I decided to give Marsha Canham's pirate books a try. It's probably the understatement of the century to say that I'm glad I did.

    Isabeau Spence is the daughter of privateer Captain Jonas Spence, and an amazingly gifted ship's pilot and cartographer. When they come across a disabled and sinking ship, they stop to help the injured crew, completely unaware that they, and their ship, have just fallen into the hands of one Simon Dante, the infamous Pirate Wolf. Dante informs Jonas and Isabeau that he means to commandeer their ship to seek revenge on the man who betrayed him to the Spanish.

    This book is set during the Elizabethan period - not my favorite period for historical romance, but Ms. Canham handles it deftly, with great (and accurate) attention to historical detail, and that genuinely old-time swashbuckling feel, more than a little reminiscent of an old Errol Flynn film (take your pick). I think this is probably my favorite thing about Canham's writing in general: practically everything she writes has that highly visual cinematic feel to it.
    The naval battles are so incredibly descriptive and well-written, you'd almost swear she has survived a few of them herself. And the developing romance between Simon and Isabeau is signature Marsha Canham engrossing and H-O-T.
    The secondary characters are, as always, well-written, quirky, funny, very real, and serve to greatly enrich the story overall.

    I highly recommend picking up this book (and the sequel), even - especially - if the pirate-themed romances of yesteryear have left you somewhat under-enthused with the prospect of trying more. This series is everything good pirate romances should be, but so frequently aren't; engrossing, evocative, & highly visual.
    This woman should be writing screenplays!

    Re-Read 1/20/14
    After re-reading The Wind and The Sea, I needed more. This was the only other, high-seas, mental big screen I ever came across that would fit the bill. FREE on Amazon. Such a little known treasure. I saw a reviewer refer to it as a "bodice-ripper" and I have to say, I find that a little offensive. This is a wonderfully written tale, told with such imagery and emotion pouring from every page, reminiscent of an era when movies were epic and actors were movie stars. To throw it in with such a tawdry sub-genre is a disservice to all who have yet to discover such a gem. Those of us who love a great romantic adventure, faceted characters who are capable of intelligent dialogue and plots with direction and page turning surprise know better. Great read in my opinion. And one of my very favorites.

    Original Review
    Marsha Canham is fast becoming one of my very favorite authors. She can illustrated a story with an endless pallet of words. Her characters are rich and strong and stay absolutely true from start to finish. In the book, she brings the sea and salted air to life and you can actually feel the recoil of the cannons when the fire them as well as feel the masts splinter when the fire is returned. It is most definitely a romance but in the forefront is the adventure and both have you turning pages until wee hours of the night. Beau and Simon's witty verbal swordplay is matched with actual swordplay as he is compelled to try and tame her, fully knowing it's as futile as taming the sea. Great swashbuckling classic story painted in full color of a very talented author. Really enjoyed the book and will be moving on the second in the series.

    I'm a huge fan of pirate stories with a healthy dose of romance. Pirates are the ultimate alpha males and Simone Dante does not disappoint. What I loved about this story was the equally strong and stubborn heroine, Beau Spence. Isabeau wasn't the swooning maiden, but rather a well-respected merchant sea-woman, skillful both at the helm of a ship and in drawing charts. All of this and a sharp tongue (and filthy mouth) to go with it.

    Both Simon and Beau have sworn off serious relationships with the opposite sex - each having been treated treacherously in the past. But their physical attraction won't be denied. It isn't long after they finally succumb to their physical desires that their hearts follow.

    The relationship between Beau and her father, Captain of the Egret, was really wonderful. I really enjoyed his character.

    The storyline of Across a Moonlit Sea was very engaging and interesting. There was a ton of action and intrigue as well.

    What I didn't like was the amount of head hoping that occurred in the story. We were in practically every secondary characters head at some point or another and I don't think it really added much to the story. I would have preferred to limit the head hopping to Beau and Simon.

    I was also a little disappointed in the last 10% of the book. There is a key scene where Simon finally pours his heart out and it would've been much more emotionally powerful for me if Beau had reacted equally as open.

    But overall, this book is definitely worth the time to read. I smiled a lot while reading it and enjoyed the sparing / banter between the hero and heroine.
