Book Tour/Giveaway - Capture My Heart by Bobbi Smith



CAPTURE MY HEART
by Bobbi Smith

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Historical Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Serad is the powerful, handsome pirate whose relentless plundering is the stuff of legend—but only a few know that his true identity is Lord Alexander Wakefield. His kidnapping as a child by Barbary pirates changed the course of his life. Now Serad is the master of the seas, accustomed to possessing whatever—or whoever—he wants.

He Stole Her Freedom…
When Serad boards the vessel La Mouette to loot for treasure, he discovers a cargo more precious than any trinket: the heiress Victoria Lawrence. A raven-haired, emerald-eyed beauty, Victoria captivates Serad as no woman ever has before. But the fiery young lady doesn’t seem to understand that she is now a captive, expected to honor her new master’s wishes and desires without question…

But He Must Win Her Heart
When Victoria set sail from India, she expected the voyage to deliver her into the arms of her betrothed—not a heartless gang of pirates. Now captured, she refuses to bow to any man, even one as commanding as Serad. Sharing his cabin, Victoria can barely resist her attraction to her captor. But if she gives in to her desires, Victoria knows Serad will accept nothing less than her total surrender...


~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Excerpt:

The captain and crew of the La Mouette were growing suspicious as they noted the other ship angling toward them.

“I don’t like this,” Captain Duval growled as he lifted his telescope to scan the other vessel once more. The safety of his ship, crew and passengers was paramount. He couldn’t put them at risk. The odds were with him that this was just another merchant ship, but there was always the chance that it wasn’t, and he wanted to be prepared. “Steer hard aport. Let’s see what happens…”

The crew watched and waited, and when the other ship altered its course to intercept theirs, they knew they were in trouble.

“Full sail! It’s the Scimitar! We’re going to have to make a run for it!”

The crew was jarred into action. The pirate ship’s reputation was well known.

On board the Scimitar, Serad stood with Tariq, his second-in-command, watching the other ship make an effort to escape him.

“They must be carrying something of great value,” Tariq observed.

“The captain is a fool. I wanted our fearsome reputation to make them surrender without a fight, not run and force a battle. Fire now, single shot across the port bow. Maybe a warning shot will stop them,” Serad ordered.

Ignored in the midst of the chaos, Victoria and Miss Jones stood on deck, watching all that was happening. Only when the other ship fired its gun did they realize they were in danger.

“They must be pirates!” Victoria exclaimed.

“We have to go below now!” her elderly companion insisted.

Captain Duval looked up just then to see them on deck. “Ladies! Get to your cabins and don’t come out until I come for you!”

  4. First thank you for the $10 Amazon BN Gift Card giveaway. Sounds like a real good read. I really the book cover and excerpt and that's important to me.
    In these uncertain times, I'm reading more than ever. I read a lot anyhow but do love a good Historical Romance.
    Got to ask? What made you write this type of book? How do you choose your characters?
    Although you are a new author to me, You write a genre I read and usually like. I'm one of those readers who will try all genres at least once and will usually try all books once. I like to give all books a chance.
    I do I hope I win.

    1. Hi Crystal, I'm with you on reading more than ever! What fun to find a good book and have time to finish it. :) Re my characters, I always love heroes who face big challenges in their lives, so having been kidnapped as a kid and then turning into a pirate seemed really great to me. I've written a lot of Westerns, too. Thanks for you comment.
