Never Trust a Pirate
Emme is tasked with getting rid of the king, but kings are not an easy target, and this one is bent on purging his lands of pirates. As Emme’s job becomes increasingly dangerous, she learns to survive the pirate way—cunning and merciless—while consoling herself with one fact: she’s just doing what it takes to get home.
But when Emme mistakenly takes out the wrong man, not even the protective pirate captain can save her from the consequences. In a string of betrayals, one thing is certain. You can never trust a pirate.

You can see my review of book one HERE. Read it first, this isn't totally a stand-a-lone.
This is the second book in a series. I loved book one, and I feel the same way about this next book in the series. Emme's life is in grave danger. An old woman who says she can see the future just touched her and started losing it. Emme didn't even want to deal with this woman. Now she's forgetting things, what is happening here? Did she just take out the wrong target? Being a pirate is far harder than it was supposed to be! What will happen with Arn, Emme and the crew? What is actually happing on and in the sea?
This book is fast paced, action packed and quite absorbing. While we have twists, turns, fine lines and gray areas, absolutely everything we were hoping for and we also get a deeper understanding of all the characters. I also got a powerful thirst for another book in this series. Side effects from this book are needing extra coffee and walking around singing pirate songs.
5 Stars - a mug of coffee with some Irish creamer and following that up by singing more songs. "Ohhhh oh, blow the man down."

More from Victoria
Pirates are more civilized than I gave them credit for. Did you know the captain didn’t have complete authority over the ship? While researching for the book, I discovered they used a voting system, and the captain followed what the crew wanted. Usually pirate stories depict a strong captain that makes all the decisions, so it was a fun twist to include more of the democracy style of the early pirates into my story. With that, came the fun power struggles as different crew members wanted different things, and they all try to sway the command of the ship. Smaller crew alliances form, friendships are tested, trust broken, and the future of the Royal Rose comes into question as, at times, the greatest threat to them lies within their own crew.
