Giveaway & Review of Pirate of My Heart by Jamie Carie

Sorry about not getting this post up yesterday but I was busy with birthday celebrations :) I wasn't originally planning on giving away my review copy but I ended up winning an autographed copy of the book from Jamie's blog so y'all get to benefit from my win!

My Review:

I thoroughly enjoyed this lively story about Kendra and Dorian. There's plenty of witty dialogue and tension between them. The pace never lags. Around every corner you can find something to keep you turning pages. Action, adventure, betrayal, and most of all romance!

Kendra is adorable! She's a very committed Christian and even through the most daunting of circumstances continually prays and seeks God's will for her life. She's also got a hat fetish so watch out! You might find yourself wanting to go out and buy a flamboyant hat :)

Dorian has faced disappointment and betrayal in relationships and is understandably leery of becoming involved with another woman but he is drawn to Kendra like a moth to a flame, or maybe he likes her hats ;)

Together they wade through misunderstandings, adversity and deceit but gain trust and love in each other. They really are an irresistible couple. I recommend this book to any fan of Jamie's and historical fiction lovers. She has a distinctive writing style that will keep you coming back, book after book!

Special thanks to Julie Gwinn, B&H Publishing Group, A Division of LifeWay Christian Resources for sending  me a review copy. I was not required to write a positive review. This opinion is my own.

Leave a comment telling me your favorite Jamie Carie book. Ends Sept 15th at midnight. I'll draw a winner on Sept. 16th. US Only!!!

FYI: Jamie has a live action book trailer for her next book coming out in March 2012! Check it out here. It ROCKS!!!

    I may be gone until late on the 17th, is that too late in case I win?

    I just LOVE a book that has all the things you mentioned: witty, tension, great pace, action, adventure, betrayal, and romance too. Looking forward to it!!

  9. Hi Pam, Thanks for letting me know you'll be gone. That way if you win, I won't panic when I don't hear from you and choose another :)

    This was a really good one and if you haven't read any of Jamie's books, definitely go check some out from your library! My favorite is The Dutchess & The Dragon :)

  10. I love the title of your blog. I loved The Dutchess and the Dragon, but I loved Wind Dancer even more. I would love to catch up and read this book since it's her latest release.

  11. Hey Michelle! Thanks...It lacks creativity name wise, but might say a little about my mind and what it's full of ;)

    I haven't read Wind Dancer. Guess I need to rectify that. Thanks for coming by and entering.
