The Pirate's Bride by Lynette Vinet

DNF @ 3%

This is one of the prettiest bodice-ripper covers that I have ever seen, and I've been hungering after a copy of this book for years just because of that sultry, Lisa Franky goodness.

Sadly, this book was a huge disappointment... proving once again that the books with the prettiest covers often feel the most dialed-in. The writing wasn't cringe-so-hard-your-face-crumples-like-origami-paper bad, but it felt very basic. While reading this, it reminded me of about five other bodice-ripper novels I've read, but without any of the elements that made those books more readable than this one.

I was debating on giving this two stars since it's so overwhelmingly mediocre, but if I can't make it to the 10% mark of a book, it's got to be pretty not good.

I still love the cover, though. *weeps*

1 out of 5 stars
