Growing up on the Isle of Moon, Brigitta knows nothing of her past, except that she is Embraced: born with powers that forced her into hiding. Everything changes when she learns she’s a princess, hidden away from her villainous half-brother who now rules the kingdom. But he knows about Brigitta, and he’ll do anything to get her back. Unless a certain roguish pirate has anything to say about it…

Rupert is both an infamous pirate and a sorcerer with the power to harness the wind. He’s been waiting nineteen years for revenge—and he needs Brigitta to get it. What begins as a kidnapping of the fiery beauty turns into a fierce attraction. But can he win the captive princess’s heart?

My Thoughts 
I really enjoyed book one of Kerrelyn Sparks, The Embraced series I just had to read book two.

I truly enjoyed the world set up and how easily it is explained and I also enjoyed the background detail that went into both characters. As in a lot of these romance stories you have a storyline where Rupert wants nothing more than revenge for his family and Brigitta is his target and she has no clue what is going on. What is different in this story than? Well, the world and the way they handled were very different. I love the way the author had Brigitta to find all of the pieces to put the whole family background together and took it to Rupert and both characters fit together very nicely.

Overall the book was very good, but I had a couple of issues. I  had mixed feeling on how the villain, Brigitta brother was handled. One part of me wished he was put out of his misery, while the other part if me is fine with the way it was handled even though I felt it was tad wimpy on her part after what all he’d done to everyone.  There is no way she would have been able to have gotten by with riding a horse that long to help Rupert, being a horse rider newbie. I cannot believe nobody caught that bit before publishing.  Sister Fallyn while she is adorable as a nun she was on my last nerve with the whole “pirates are going to ravish us” bit. The heck of it was she fell in love with one of them. What the heck? After screaming for days about them going to ravish them and now wants to be ravished by one. Yeah, well only in romance can you get by with those kind of lines. LOL

All in all, I did enjoy the story, characters and as Sparks fan I am glad I didn’t miss out on this story. I will be looking forward to book three.
