Synopsis from Goodreads:
His secrets could destroy her... 

New Orleans, 1817

Colette Kincaid once knew such love and delicious passion in the arms of her pirate husband, Donato de la Roche. Yet Colette could not continue to live as the wife of a pirate, when reunited with her family. So she fled, taking their son with her and reconciling herself to never seeing her husband again...

Until their son is taken.

Donato is convinced his wife is behind his son's disappearance-just as she is convinced he is the villain. Now they're unable to leave each other's side as they seek their child, forced to confront the desire that still smolders between them. But Donato knows that soon he must face the secret about Colette he's been hiding for so long. And it's a secret for which there is no forgiveness...

What I Think....
If you are looking for a historical romance novel that is passionate, exciting, and overflowing with love, this is the book for you! I'm a sucker for pirates, so when this tour came available, I thought, "heck yes"! I wasn't familiar with the author, but I still wanted to give it a try and I couldn't be more pleased with the results. To say I enjoyed this novel is an understatement!

Hennessy brings to life two very diverse, intense characters, that can only be satisfied with each other. Colette Kincaid is the type of woman you don't take for granted. She's humble, compassionate, and loyal to almost a fault. Which is why she is living in New Orleans with her brother Jordan instead of her husband, Donato de la Roche. She loves Donato, but won't risk their son Enio's safety for her love of a pirate. Donato is a wanted man, known all over the ocean as a fearless warrior who shows no mercy in battle. She cannot be expected to raise their son in an environment like that. However, when Enio is abducted, Donato and Colette must work together to make their family whole again. Wild seas, dark nights, and deep hidden secrets are the least of their worries. True love is the only way they can piece back the broken pieces of their relationship. 

Now, what I loved most about this novel is the amount of love that seeps out of each page. Seriously, every motive, every choice, every single situation is handled with love in this novel. There were no ulterior motives behind any hidden doors that I found. It was just breathtaking to see such devotion from such a diverse family. Being a parent myself, I really connected with Colette and just adored her character. Donato was also a great example of a "family man". Today, we don't see nearly enough reputable men being written about and so this was definitely a seller for me! 

Hennessy does a great job with incorporating both the Spanish and the French customs into the novel, as well as accurate historical information. My only negative comment is that the pace was a bit slower then what I would have preferred. I felt like there could have been more "pirate-y" events and less lengthy descriptions. Nevertheless, I still loved it!

About The Author

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. Meg grew up immersed in the culture of her father's old Southern family and writes with a Southern flavor. It was her sense of wonderment when visiting her grandmother's home as a child that now bubbles upward into her writing of today, creating steamy nights of intrigue and romance.
She had been writing for years, but seriously pursued publication in 2009. Seeking authenticity for her first novel, she researched hundreds of books, visited numerous battlefields, and toured antebellum homes. When it came to putting pen to paper, Meg found her story-telling voice, as her heroine simply stepped into Shadows of a Southern Moon, winning the 2010 EPIC Award for best Historical Romance and launching her writing career.
Meg lives amid the beautiful rolling hills of southeastern Wisconsin. Besides writing and spoiling her much-loved horse, she enjoys backyard birding, nature walks, and admits to being a gardening addict. Having spun stories for years, she enjoys seeing her dream come true as her characters spring to life and step within the beautifully bound pages of a romance novel.
