Once, Cain sailed with the cutthroats of The Flying Gang, fearless Captain of The Kraken, bound to no one save the sea. After inheriting a portion of Spain’s Royal Inheritance, he resigned the life of brigands for a chance at honest wealth. With the secrets of his piracy tucked away, he achieved his lofty aspirations. But when his partner and best friend betrays him to the Royal Navy, Cain’s dreams are ripped to shreds. He’s left with his ship, the tattered remnants of a stolen future, and a piece of Spanish mystery. Wanted by three nations and destined for the gallows, he returns to the legendary band of buccaneers for one purpose---vengeance.
Kidnapped by the formidable Cain, India Prescott discovers he intends to kill the man she’s to marry, Richard Grey. Cain’s story reveals betrayal. Treachery that extends to her as well. Although she holds the key to retribution, India refuses to become another man’s pawn. Freedom lies before her, the liberty to shrug off propriety, make her own decisions, and claim her destiny. But when she uncovers goodness in Cain’s soul and he awakens passion in her heart, she must combat the chains of convention once more.
Only this time India's not fighting society. She’s battling a pirate bent on keeping her decency intact.
Bound by Decency is captivating pirate’s story of betrayal, trust, adventure and heart stopping romance that will have you on the edge of your set. I loved the passion and the vivid imagination that was added to the story; it made me feel like I was right there in the middle of all.
I loved the strength that India had and how she was willing to risk it all to have love. The same goes for Cain. As you read you’ll see these two really deserved each other and in many ways.
I am really glad to see this is going to be a series because I really like Drake and Alex and would love to see what adventure unfolds for them.
Load your cannons, oops my bad, I mean your wallets (LOL) and get ready for this awesome adventure because I highly recommend this awesome historical romance to anyone that loves a good pirate’s tale.
