The first half was so promising, so good, but they had to just go and ruin it. I loved Tamzen's character: her strength, her motivations and just her overall attitude - she was a badass.

But bloody Nicola Italia just had to go and ruin everything. I mean, the amnesia card? Really? Tamzen's cool character did a full 180 and was suddenly just like any other heroine, but somehow worse because we had already seen what she was like before. The whole second half of this book was completely unnecessary. It was lazily written, it was not thought out at all, it majorly lacked engagement and honestly, it was just painful to read. This book could have easily been a 4 stars but that cannot happen now. Not to mention the romance. Dear God. I'm sorry that I don't find it romantic when the ML says that he almost raped the FL and only didn't because he was interruped. AND SHE'S PERFECTLY OKAY WITH THAT? No freaking way. It's disgusting. I liked Reece's character even if he was lacking at times, but this? It was just unacceptable. Honestly, I don't know what to say about this. I'm just really disappointed. I had such high hopes, and it was going so well. I'm actually quite upset about the way this turned out, from the dragging middle to the rushed (and totally ridiculous) ending.

    A story with too much coincidences, historical nonsense and some minor characters having a complete change of personality. Normally the author is a lot better.

    DNF I am so disappointed with this book. The storyline had so much potential. It was just incredibly badly executed. It seriously felt like it had been written by a teenager. 1. Italia gave us just the barest skeleton of a story. Everything was almost like a passing comment. We have a girl who has worked for 4 years to become a pirate, and she is now on a ship and we get to our first pirate ship that they need to attack and steal the cargo from. Do we get the built up to it, the emotion within our DNF I am so disappointed with this book. The storyline had so much potential. It was just incredibly badly executed.

We have a girl who has worked for 4 years to become a pirate, and she is now on a ship and we get to our first pirate ship that they need to attack and steal the cargo from. Do we get the built up to it, the emotion within our heroine as she faces her first battle, the excitement of having won her first victory? Nope. We get basically a single sentence saying the ship was smaller than theirs so they took it easily and loaded the cargo onto their ship before setting off again. That's it. No biggy. When she meets the hero, they fight a duel, and again we get barely anything. We get told everything moved really quickly. She had to remember what she had been taught about focusing and she had to find her opening. Then we are told that she found it (though we are not given any details beyond that, including how quickly she found it) and Reese's sword skids across the deck. Done. Time to move on. 2. The writing style felt very childish (like what my two primary-school-aged boys come up with). They got in a fight and she won. She suddenly felt very angry. She thought she had lost him but he found her. Everything is tell rather than show and there is little that can be described as clever in the sentence structures. 3. Everything in the storyline was so easy. At 14 she comes up with a plan to become a pirate, and after receiving a no answer from the person who is to teach her, she goes to her aunt and almost instantly gets a yes. She learns to hand fight and sword fight, and then she needs to learn to sail. So they easily find a man with a ship that is willing to teach her, and each afternoon she goes off sailing. Then, amazingly, that same captain is willing to step aside and let her take over his ship when the time comes for her to set off. Just like that. Wow. They enter the world of pirates, as pirates themselves, and supposedly it is a lawless world, but everyone is so civilised. So accepting. We get a scene where they confront a ship and the other pirate captain comes across and insults Tamzen. She challenges him to a duel, and in typical Italia fashion, it is all over in a sentence. Then Tamzen tells the captain that they are taking his cargo and he says "Fair enough". And that's it. When they get to the lawless town where all the pirates hang out, we are told that Tamzen has bested many of the men there and they all look at her with respect. Amazing. No hate at being bested by a woman. No desire for revenge. They all just respect her. So easy. And as for finding out who killed her brother, again, it is so easy. Someone finds out that there is a pirate who went against a navy ship four years ago and killed two navy crewmen. Seriously, in four years, that's the only pirate and navy encounter, or at least such a memorable one? It wasn't even a massacre to be remembered. 4. The book is so heavy on dialogue and little else. We don't even get details around the dialogue. Sometimes it is just speech after speech after speech for a few kindle sized pages. I am so disappointed to stop reading, because the storyline had such potential, but when I am already watching the percentages of the book tick over and I'm only on 28% of the book, I know it is going to be too long a haul to keep going. Nicola Italia, why don't you take a leaf out of your character's book and go away for four years and learn your craft. Then rewrite the book. I'll happily give it another go then.

In the amount of the book that I managed to get through, at no point was the romantic relationship that was being set up appeal to me. Reece was a predator. He is set up as an antagonist that Tamzen has no real initial connection to, and he considers her a possession to win and ravish. I simply couldn’t foresee either of these things being resolved in a satisfactory way by the end of the novel and thus had no more interest in reading it.

    I’m so thankful for Nicola reaching out to me after seeing my reviews of her other books I’ve read. Thank you! I was due for an adventure packed regency romance when I picked this one up. I’d read a few contemporary romances and chick lit books, but I needed this fix. Considering the two other books of hers I’ve read I assumed the female lead would be a strong independent character. And I was right! In The Sheik’s Son the female lead was a writer stirring up discontent against the higher classes, I’m so thankful for Nicola reaching out to me after seeing my reviews of her other books I’ve read. Thank you! I was due for an adventure packed regency romance when I picked this one up. I’d read a few contemporary romances and chick lit books, but I needed this fix. Considering the two other books of hers I’ve read I assumed the female lead would be a strong independent character. And I was right! In The Sheik’s Son the female lead was a writer stirring up discontent against the higher classes, while in Love in the Valley of the Kings the female lead was educated, ahead of her times and so sweet. A noblewoman that moonlights as a pirate captain? That kinda fits the bill I reckon. Although I was surprised by how and when our main leads met, I really enjoyed seeing them grow and develop. Especially because he was totally ok with her beating him in a sword-fight in front of his entire crew! How many men can say they are secure in their masculinity that they’d be ok with this? I did feel like this book should be written in two parts. One during the pirate days and one after. It felt like these two sections were very different, and so should have had a bigger way to differentiate between them without creating a sequel. I agree that it didn’t need a sequel, but I still would have preferred a bigger “separator” in the story. What I didn’t like was how casual Tamzen was when she found out why she’d run away from her “fiancé”. I can’t see someone being so casual about learning that fact, so it was weird that it felt like she was just like “o ok, but you won’t do it again? Ok that’s fine then.” It just confused me a little bit.

    4.5 stars! I absolutely love pirate books and this is by far one of the best I have read. Our main character is witty, strong, brave and a badass who is one hell of a swordsman! Romance, hot pirates, family, friendship and the aftermath of dealing with someone you have lost. This book has everything! Highly recommend!

    Love on the high seas A well-plotted story that smoothly drags you in and doesn't let you go. The mix of characters seasons the story with the right mix of sugar and spice. I enjoyed the historical details without them overwhelming the story. Love on the high seas A well-plotted story that smoothly drags you in and doesn't let you go.

    An excellent historical romance! I truly enjoy action novels that depict strong brave women. This book surely meets this expiation. Also the hero needs to be a true man, also met. True love joins them forever without any reservations. Truly romantic, thank you, Jack.

    I agree with many of the reviews of this book. It did seem as if it was written by a teenager. The story itself had a lot going for it but the execution was juvenile.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. The plot line is interesting and engaging, but there are multiple examples where the author just does not incorporate the realities and customs of the time which start in 1710. Unfortunately, these errors are so glaring, that her plot would completely fall apart. For example, when Reese comes into her inn room as she is bathing and comforting her during the night. Merry her maid was traveling on the boat with her and would have been sleeping in the room with Tamzen and helping her with the bath.

Merry her maid was traveling on the boat with her and would have been sleeping in the room with Tamzen and helping her with the bath. The author just completely seemed to forget about the maid most of the time. It is also odd to note that Reese broke down the lock on the door when she was having a nightmare, but could just walk in on her bathing! It is also impossible to believe that Tamzen could be so foolish as to readily agree to allowing Reece a night in her bed in exchange for his help! Then we next come to the misunderstandings regarding how long it takes to travel in the 1700s. Atlantic crossings from England to the Bahamas would take several weeks each way and were very dependent on the weather, but Reece is supposed to return in a month to marry, but goes to Saint-Dominique for a party! He would have been lucky to make it there in a month nevertheless return in that time. The author also makes it seem that travel from London to Cornwall or Yorkshire is but an afternoon in a carriage, but both of those trips would take several days. Therefore, it would have been impossible for Reece to return to Yorkshire within a week with people from London and possible Cornwall. Lastly, Tamzen's reaction to Reece knowing who she was is to say "I'm sorry you have made a terrible mistake"? She was trying to remember who she was and feeling half a person and you really expect her not to be excited that someone knows who she is? The first part of the novel feels rather abrupt and seems to be rushing and jumping back and forth too often. This smooths out a bit as the novel progresses. I was going to rate this two stars, because it is too unbelievable for the time, but rated it 3 because the story was quite enjoyable. This story would likely have done better to be set in the late 1800s after there were steam engines and trains and telegraph machines.
