A Pirate´s Revenge. (Secrets of the Bayous) by Meg Hennessy. ARC Review.

Rayna de La Roche once lived a privileged life of a Spanish royal until her brother dragged her to America. In order to return to Spain, she must find a hidden treasure somewhere in New Orleans. She pairs up with a rugged American mercenary, whose mere touch unleashes her deepest desire.

Captain Zachary Nash has been accused of a murder he did not commit. On the run, he’s hired to protect Rayna. As much as he wants her, Zach cannot hope to have her, for she sees him as a common criminal. But keeping his hands off of her while they hunt down the treasure may be his toughest task yet.

As the passion sizzles between the royal and the captain, they’ll have to decide if the treasure is more important than love…

Rayna de la Roche has been sent on a treasure hunt by her brother.  If she finds it she can go home to Spain. He is punishing her for something she did to upset him. So now the arrogant Spanish  princess is alone in New Orleans, a dangerous place for a woman  on her own.
Zachary Nash is wanted for murder and treason against America,  but is in the employ of Rayna's brother, Prince Donato. He has told him to protect his sister, but not to let her know he is working for him.
The treasure hunt is a lot more dangerous than the Spanish siblings could imagine. There are a lot of people looking for it. Everyone seems to be working both for and against everyone else. Lies and double dealings abound.
Our heroine is a very brave but stubborn woman, who is used to manipulating men to do anything she wants. Her one desire is to return to her life of luxury in Spain.
Our hero needs to find the one man who can clear his name. He will use the easy job of looking after the princess to tempt that man into the open.
A gripping historical romance, with lots of action and adventure. Once you pick this up you won't want to put it down until it's finished. A complicated but very enjoyable read. I read this as a stand alone ,but it is obvious when you read it that there are books before it. So if you are going to read all of them I recommend reading them in order. 

Meg Hennessy read her first historical romance when Rosemary Rodgers', Sweet Savage Love, swept the college campuses. She won't admit how many years ago that was, but was forever hooked on the genre of happy-ever-afters. With her father born and raised on Mississippi's gulf coast, Meg grew up immersed in the culture of an old Southern family and writes with a Southern flavor. 

She had been writing for years, but seriously pursued publication in 2009. Seeking authenticity for her first novel,she visited numerous battle fields, and toured antebellum homes. When it came to putting pen to paper, Meg found her story-telling voice, as her heroine, Elizabeth Dubay, simply stepped into Shadows of a Southern Moon, winning the 2010 EPIC Award for best Historical Romance. 

Meg lives amid the beautiful rolling hills of southeastern Wisconsin. Having spun stories for years, she now enjoys putting them into print. She likes to create high energy characters against an historically rich backdrop, offering her readers a vivid peek into the lives and loves of yesteryear.
