The Pirate Prince

The Pirate Prince  - Gaelen Foley What a shallow book!?

I will summarize my frustration in a few points:

1. What is so great about a man who just wants to sleep with you??
2. What is so great about a woman who falls in love with a painting and accuses the man in said painting of falling short of her expectations??
3. No feelings whatsover between lead characters. Heroine appeals to hero's moral ideals. But I do not feel that she is fair herself either.

I think overall the plot is not so bad, but I just do not believe that the heroin is moral incarnate who wants to "turn" the hero into a prince that he was born to be. And the only thing that is pirate-y about the story is that it happened on a boat.

I cannot stomach superficial characters. You want to paint a picture of virtuous female character, you do not just say that she is. Somehow the heroine is just too superficial for me. The hero....i hardly noticed anything special about him.

Just a book of 2 very boring characters with boring family backgrounds. Plot was not a bad idea but not enough substance for me.
