ENCHANTED BY A LIARWhen the infamous pirate Black Garrett learned his brother had been murdered because of a flirtatious chit the surly rogue swore revenge Tracking down the worthless wench Garrett stole her aboard his vessel planning to ruin her reputation and use her brutally But as the enraged male rudely kissed her lips and roughly felt her curves he was One good night s sleepTwo cups of coffee Three glances at my notes I m still struggling with what to say about this bookSpoilers ahead But if you know about what sometimes goes down in bodice rippers it really won t be much of a spoilerObviously classic bodice rippers of the rapey era aren t my thing But I had to check out this pirate meets magic story I m always looking for a different spin on pirates It s not that I wasn t expecting the rape In stereotypical bodice ripper fashion I figured it might show up Garrett drawing on a restraint he did not feel raised his hand and lightly landed the back of his hand to her faceGod girl I never imagined I was a man who could enjoy rape but as you look like an angel you taste like the heavens Okayyyexpected scene was expected But this later attitude was not As it is he took her hand again I will not return you to any man who saw this hand and turned his back to it Uhyou VIOLENTLY RAPED a woman then think you re better than the man who didn t step in to defend that same woman when she was getting beaten It really was too bad I was ready to ignore the idiot pirate who was somehow a brilliant scientist he had microscopes and everything for his discovery of microorganismsyeah I know because there was a cool magic panther in the story AND a funny talking parrot But this nonsense of the pot calling the kettle black No Just no However I kept reading because I wanted to know how Garrett managed to win the innocent thin girl Yes thin I think Juliet s frame was mentioned as much if not than the amount of times she was heralded as innocent 25 times to be exact Sad to say innocent girl wasn t any brighter than the pirate I never figured out why Garrett loved her She neither said nor did anything remarkable NOT ONCE She was either whining or showing how little she knew about anything She was never brave or intelligent or even notably kind She was nothing than a helpless captive on a ship Garrett fell in love with her because she was innocent read stupidly clueless and beautiful that s it There was no actual character uality of hers which stood out Garrett kept secrets from her for the entire book because he didn t consider her smart enough to get or handle things That s how bad it wasI m only giving 2 stars because the read wasn t boring The story could ve been halfway good if the characters were somewhat likable

Transformed by her innocent response Cursing himself for caring Black Garrett relentlessly pleasured his captive and swore she'd feel the lash of his fury the following nightHYPNOTIZED BY A CADBewildered and betrayed sable haired Juliet Stoddard had no idea why the terrifying buccaneer had kidnapped her promising punishment worse than death Although she had n This is the second book that I have read by this author and she has a nice writing style albeit that this is not a perfect book The heroine Juliet lives with her brutal uncle and spoilt cousin The uncle physically abuses Juliet and whips her regularly and has permanently disfigured her hand She lives in a world of silence and fear It becomes clear that the spoilt cousin Clarissa is also abused by her father but in a different way Clarissa has an affair and is caught by her father who then castrates and murders her lover This turns out to be the brother of Black Garrett a famous pirate but who is in reality an English Earl who is providing information on the French to the admiralty He decides to seek revenge and murders the uncle and kidnaps Juliet in the mistaken belief that she is Clarissa with the intention of raping and abusing her He forces himself on Juliet although she gets pleasure from the act and then tries to comfort her as he realises that he has hurt the wrong woman This is undermined however by the fact he then makes her drink a potion which makes her respond amorously to him and he has sex with her throughout the night Thereafter the author does well to portray the impact that the abuse she has experienced has had on Juliet and the way in which this is compounded by the hero s actions This is not a girl who recovers over night There is a magical element to the book which I found frustrating and hard going There are two scenes where Garrett mesmerises Juliet with his magic into sleeping with him and then convinces her this was a dream Given that earlier on in the novel he points out he will not do this as it would still be against her will this left a bad taste as well as being bizarre Much of the novel was spent on Juliet s angst about her betrothed Tomas who had known about the abuse but not done anything to stop it Garrett refuses to return her to Tomas given his cowardness and a large part of the book is spent in getting Juliet to realise how worthless Tomas is Tomas is eventually revealed as a weak villain and this devastates Juliet even further and makes Garrett feel even guilty He takes her to his mother and sister to help her recover In the end she realises that she loves him There is a silly end plot device which involved Juliet singlehandedly warning Garrett that his identity has been revealed to the French and saving the day This was just stupid and I could have done with out it Overall I did enjoy this book but there was no doubt it was frustrating at times

    25 stars So one fine day I felt a hankering to read bodice ripper's and started off with this one six weeks later I am still on my historical romance bender although I am thankful to report that I am done with bodice rippers loldefinitely non PC but enjoyable reading though slow at times word of warning the book is a bodice ripper which usually means that H rapes the h which he does in this book
