ARC Reviews


Restless Sea Lord.(Legendary Bastards Of The Crown #1) by Elizabeth Rose. ARC Review.

Rowen the Restless is one of the bastard triplets of King Edward III. At birth, the king ordered them killed, fearing the superstitions of triplets being evil spawns of the devil who would only bring him bad luck. However, someone doesn't want the babies to die, and the boys' lives are saved in secret.

Now, over two decades later, Rowen and his brothers, Rook and Reed, are out for vengeance on the man who sired them and wanted them dead. Finding out the truth of being the English king's bastards on the night of Burnt Candlemas ten years earlier, the young boys' lives changed drastically as they were split apart in the turmoil that devastated their homeland of Scotland. Being stolen and raised by pirates, Rowen now commandeers a ship and works with his brothers who reside in the crypts and the hills, to steal from the king and bring the riches to the Scots instead. No one knows that the legendary demon thief who manages to always disappear before he is caught, and who can even change his hair color from blond to red to black, is not one man, but three brothers, each with a small army of their own.

Lady Cordelia of Whitehaven is a young widow who wants nothing more than to have children - something her elderly husband gave her only once, but her baby died in her arms. She happens to end up in the wrong place at the wrong time. Before she knows it, she's been taken captive by a pirate who has stolen her dowry that she plans on using to convince the king to let her marry a new husband of her own choosing. The sea captain is handsome and exciting, and protects her from being ravaged by his crew. And while he's mysterious, Cordelia realizes he is very restless and has deep, dark secrets that disturb him. She hopes to uncover the secrets of the restless sea lord because she sees a noble man trapped inside, making him more of a prisoner than her.

Watch for Rook the Ruthless - Book 2, and Reed the Reckless - Book 3 of the series, coming soon!

Rowen the Restless is one of triplets who discovered on a violent night in Scotland, that they are bastard sons of a very powerful man.  Because of superstition surrounding multiple births their father had ordered them all killed. Years later as adults they are doing all they can to get vengeance.  Rowen is now a pirate known as the Demon Thief. 
Lady Cordelia de Clare of Whitehaven is a young widow on her way to bribe King Edward to allow her to choose her next husband herself.  The dowry she carries is just too tempting for a pirate to resist. 
A wonderful romance full of adventure and emotion.  The complicated lives of our lead characters is fascinating.  The ending is surprising and leaves us begging for the next book.  Just to see how things can possibly be resolved.  I loved every page.
