be for a women and surly not for Alice This is where the two have to get past their reluctant feelings and also deal with the past I can t say enough about how much I enjoyed this book and series I love Ms Olech writing and can t wait for the next great book by her Within a Captain s Treasure is the 2nd book in the Captains of the Scarlet Night series by Lisa A Olech Although it s part of a series it can easily be read as a stand alone novel.This is the story of Alice Tupper She s on the run after killing a man in order to save her Mistress She boards a ship taking her away from England, taking her to America where she will be a Governess to two young children.Unfortunately while at sea the ship she is on is taken over by savage pirates Pirates that take her as part of their prize More than one of them, but especially the Captain plan on raping her, and if she lives through that, who knows what else they will do She fights the good fight, and when yet another pirate ship comes into the equation, between the new men and herself, she manages to get away from the filthy pirates who first took her, and finds herself on the new pirate ship, The Scarlet Night This ship and it s captain couldn t be different that the first one, this one is clean, it s men, although rough, are fully under the control of their captain Unlike the first dirty, stinking, rapist of a captain, this one is handsome, clean, and has no intentions of raping her or hurting her at all.Gavin Quinn is that captain, and although he is unhappy with having a woman onboard ship because some of his crew think she will curse their voyage, he couldn t leave her behind There is no attraction on his part, at least not to begin with There is no attraction on Alice s part either, she s too busy being furious about what s been happening to her She is fortunate in as much as the Captain is going to carry on sailing her to Virginia She is determined to win over the crew, if not it s captain because it s going to be a long journey, one in which she doesn t want to be forever watching her back worrying about being raped, or thrown overboard Fortunately her reputation precedes her, the mistress she saved was the wife of a well known Privateer, one much beloved by the captain and it s crew When they find that out, much of the crew end up loving her There are still the few who are angry she is on board because of the superstition, but Gavin keeps them in their place and after a vote of the majority, Alice is allowed and welcomed to stay onboard.What follows is a thrilling at sea adventure where Alice adjusts to life as a pirate There are battles at sea, battles amongst her and the men who don t want her on board, and the biggest battle is the battle that both Gavin and Alice end up fighting, the battle of attraction for each other Alice doesn t want to lose her heart to a man who doesn t seem to like her very much, let alone love her Gavin doesn t want to give in to his attraction because his life is no life for a woman to be a part of It s a life he won t give up, can t give up, so over the years he has hardened his heart to love Will Alice be able to break down his barriers, can she convince him that she would love to stay at sea with him Or does she end up taking on the Governess job after all I loved this book so much, it was so exciting, not only the romance story that unfolds, but the excitement of the battles at sea, the life of a pirate was shared so well that you could picture yourself on board I haven t had the pleasure of reading the other books in the series, but I am definitely going to I recommend this book 100%, and wish I could give it 500 stars, not just 5 YES I loved it that much It s definitely a book that I will read again and again.I was given a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. Review to come I received an ARC in exchange for an honest opinion.Alice is on her way to Virginia from England to start a new life As she crosses the ocean the ship she is on is overtaken by pirates Many are killed but any women are taken to the pirates vessel to face an uncertain future.Alice is thrown in a locked room after being saved by the Captain from rape but he is only saving her from himself Later the ship is being attacked, by another ship, the Scarlet Night After a battle, the crew of the Scarlet Night wins and they rescue Alice.Women aren t supposed to be on ships and the Captain and crew don t feel any differently Then they find out she is the woman who saved the life of their prior Captain It is a tale that gets daring every time it is told She is accepted by most of the men but not all Plus, as she is expected to work, she does every job she is given with out complaint, endearing herself or angering others even.Quinn, the Captain, has no place in his heart for love He is attracted to Alice as she is to him All he wants to do is get her to land and off his ship All he has to do is stay away from her.I felt that the first half of this story moved very slowly While I felt like we got to know Quinn fairly well, I found that I don t think we got to see much of Alice s personality Later in the book her character really fills out Yes, Alice is brave and defends herself and works hard but I don t feel like I met Alice until after she falls in love.I did like Alice s interaction with the children after she becomes a nanny She truly cares about them I do hate how she was turned against when the truth was learned, typical of the differences in the way women were treated at that point in history.To me, the first half of the book is a 1, while the last half is an 8 I don t think that is enough for me to want to buy this story. Alice Tupper, a lady s maid, finds her life aboard a ship bound for America She is taking a job as a nanny once she reaches America The ship is soon taken by pirates which she is a lone survivor, then that ship is take by another band of pirates, until she finds herself a captive aboard Captain Gavin Quinn s ship Alice most use her wits and cunning to survive a ship full of disreputable men She will do her best to make herself useful to the Captain and crew Most of the crew are quickly taken by Alice and her determination to work to the best of her ability but she manages to make some enemies along the way Alice discovers that life on the sea fits her than anything else ever did and if she could capture the brooding Captain s heart even better, but the Captain is having none of it.Gavin chose the pirate life after the loss of his wife and child He has done his best to freeze his heart He is drawn to Alice but puts up as many walls as possible to keep her at arm s length Unfortunately for Gavin, his arms keep pulling her in His plan is to get her off his ship as soon as possible and out of his hair.Can Alice convince Gavin before it s too late I loved Alice s character She was everything a woman should strive to be but nothing like a lady of her times should even consider becoming.Be read to set sail for a high sea adventure with Within A Captain s Treasure Pulled in by the characters, I found myself utter invested in this novel and completely swept away by Olech s storytelling.I received this ARC copy of Within A Captain s Treasure from Kensington Books Lyrical Press in exchange for a honest review This book is set for publication May 24, 2016.My Rating 5 starsWritten by Lisa A OlechPaperback 196 pagesPublisher Lyrical Press Publication Date May 24, 2016ISBN 10 1616509740ISBN 13 978 1616509743Genre Historical Romance Pirates Barnes Noble `FREE EPUB ☔ Within A Captains Treasure (Captains of the Scarlet Night, #2) ☂ This Pirate S Latest Prize May Be Love With A Single Pistol Shot And The Swing Of A Cutlass, Alice Tupper Saves Her Mistress S Life But No Lady S Maid In Polite Society Has Ever Killed A Duke At Least, Not On Purpose So Alice Sets Sail For America And Her New Destiny Only To Find Herself Battling Pirates On The High Seas Aboard Her Rescue Ship, The Scarlet Night, She Is Hailed A Hero And Earns Her Place Among The Crew As Well As The Ire Of Captain Gavin QuinnGavin Chose This Pirate S Life, But He Knows It S No Place For A Woman, Especially One As Exasperating And Beautiful As Alice Despite His Desire For Her, Gavin Is Determined To Do The Right Thing And Deliver Her To The New World But Alice S Deepest Wish Is A Life By Gavin S Side Will His Heart Overrule His Sense, And Will He Risk Everything To Pursue His Greatest Treasure Of All
