Seduced By A Pirate by Eloisa James Review

Sir Griffin Barry, once the captain of the infamous pirate ship The Poppy, is now back in England to claim the woman he left on their wedding night. But in Seduced By A Pirate by Eloisa James, the woman Griff left behind is not the one he comes home to. Married off to an older woman, Griff left on his honeymoon night for an unknown destination, eventually becoming a privateer, a Crown sanctioned pirate who attacked other country’s ships for profit. After almost losing his life, and being permanently scarred, Griff has decided to return to his wife and the life he left behind.

After reading The Ugly Duchess  I was excited to read Griffin’s story, Griffin and James had teamed up as pirates, making both of them wealthy in the process. The story between Griff and Phoebe was interesting and I loved the children’s reactions to Griff. However, I struggled with Griff’s relationship with his father and the father’s reaction to Phoebe. Part of the reason Griff left was because of his father’s attitude towards things but his father, after having very little or no contact with Phoebe, does a complete turn around in a couple of pages. That relationship just felt rushed and since the novel was only 136 pages long I felt like it could have been developed better and at a more realistic pace. That being said, I really liked Phoebe and admired her for figuring out what she wanted from life and not being afraid to go after it. Seduced By a Pirate received a 3 from me because I felt part of the story was rushed but at $.99 (the price at the time of posting) it is worth the money.
