Tagline: A daring brotherhood, where honor among thieves reigns supreme, and crushing their enemies is a thrilling pastime. These are the Pirates of Britannia.
Constantine le Brecque is a man of many facets. As the bastard son of Henry V, he was raised in secret to protect him from the king’s enemies and lived his life knowing that his royal blood was a curse. He was, however, properly educated and trained as a knight, and one of the very best England has ever seen. But when he falls in love with the wrong woman, the course of his life is irrevocably changed….
Now, Constantine is known as the fearsome English pirate called LEADER OF TITANS, but his experience with his ex-lover wasn’t enough to drive him away from women. He loves them, and loves them in droves. Passion, plunder, and pirates is his motto.
Enter Lady Greggoria “Gregg” de Moyon. A pious woman, she was given a sacred object by her husband, an object much sought after by the terrible French pirates who roam the coast between Brittany and England. When her husband is killed by the French pirates on their quest for the treasure, Greggoria must turn to Constantine for help. She knows that only a pirate of equal strength can fight off the French and save her from most certain doom.
Constantine is more than willing to help the beautiful woman with the unusual name. But when he unexpectedly falls for her, the man with more women than a Arab sheik finds that his task has just become unbearably complicated. Can he save Greggoria from the French pirates who want to see her dead? And the mysterious treasure that she is protecting… will it be his destruction?
NOTE: This is Book 2 in the Lords of the Sea pirate series, written by Eliza Knight and Kathryn Le Veque. Eliza Knight’s novel, SAVAGE OF THE SEA, is Book One in this series. All books are stand-alones but much more fun if read together!
Gregoria was shocked. Frightened, outraged, and shocked. But she was also flattered, and those emotions battled it out for supremacy as she tried to stay away from Constantine. The man had a terribly hungry look in his eye.
“I will not be your whore!” she said.
“I did not say whore. There are better words for it than that; some of the greatest women in the world were concubines or companions to great men.”
“Concubine?” she nearly shrieked. “That is nothing but a brood mare!”
Constantine was starting to laugh; he was also starting to close the gap between them. She had backed herself into a corner of the chamber and the only way out would be to run around him.
But he wouldn’t let that happen.
“Brood mares serve a purpose,” he said evenly. “I can only imagine what strong sons I would have from you.”
If Constantine wasn’t sure if she could become any more outraged with the conversation, he was wrong. She was quickly growing furious.
“Concubines are cheap, common women,” she scolded. “I am not cheap and I am not common. I resent you for suggesting it!”
He was nearly on her and when she realized that, she tried to move away but he grabbed her, shoving her back into the corner of the cabin and pinning her with his big body. One arm went around her to hold her tightly while the other hand began to roam. He buried his face in her neck, suckling at her flesh.
“I agree,” he purred against her flesh. “You are not common and you are not cheap. You are a fine, beautiful woman the likes of which I have never seen before and I must have you. Do you not realize how fine you are, Gregg? If your husband never told you, then the man was a fool. You should be told daily how fine and beautiful you are.”
Gregoria had never been kissed by a man like this, not ever. Constantine was holding her fast with one arm while the hand of his other held her head still, fingers intertwining in her hair as his lips moved up her neck and onto her shoulder. Hot, sweet kisses rained down on her flesh and now her heart was racing for an entirely different reason…
She liked it.
