Black Jack Rhys never met a ship he couldn't board, a sea he couldn't conquer, nor a woman he couldn't bend to his will. But Lorelei Dupree may well be the death of him. For the cruel pirate, who laughs at danger, is nonplused by the fiery redhead who has vowed to bring him to justice. When fate locks them together in its unyielding grip, both Jack and Lorelei are determined to win. But neither have met their match until the day they square off against each other. Lorelei cannot resist the pewter eyes of the master of seduction, and Jack is fast finding himself the one being seduced.
Kinley MacGregor burst onto the scene with A Pirate of Her Own, lending a brilliant new voice to historical romance. Now, with Master of Seduction, Ms. MacGregor may just command a place at the top of the genre. Written in the swashbuckling, adventurous style which has quickly become her trademark, Jack and Lorelei's lusty, entrancing love story is one for the ages. Ms. MacGregor has created an incomparable hero, and a heroine worthy of the name. This one is a keeper. -- Affaire de Coeur

Black Jack Rhys is a master of deception as well as seduction. The man is mad, bad and dangerous in and out of bed, and you'd love to be in his arms for a night (this is fantasy time so relax and enjoy it!).
...The repartee between Jack and Lorelei is spirited and witty and keeps this book humming.
The marvelous secondary characters that add so much to this swashbuckling tale will intrigue you. I know there have to be some great stories coming up from the pen of this gifted storyteller. I'd love to see a book for Kit, what a hero he'd make! -- Suzanne Coleburn--Belles and Beaux
Ring in the New Year with a book not to be missed! Once again, Kinley MacGregor has gifted her readers with a book to treasure for a liftetime. -- Romance Readers & Writers Forum
Sail into one of the best pirate stories ever. Lusty, poignant, uproarious and heart-breaking, A Pirate of Her Own is a delight. Absolutely impossible to put down. A guaranteed winner. MacGregor takes the classic pirate plot and spins such a yarn of hilarious yet heart-rending tangles, one is torn as to which emotion to follow first. Suspense permeates the action while Serenity slowly peals away layer after layer of the Sea Wolfs mysterious life. Tensions soars as these two do battle each other, other pirates, the British Navy and the elements. Breathtaking, sensuous love scenes add a piquant touch that meshes superbly with the rest of the action. I hated for this tale to end. Kinley MacGregor is a born storyteller. Bright, vivid pictures flow from her prose weaving a mystical spell that captures the reader in the first sentence. Congratulations on a most auspicious debut. -- RomCom.Com by Barbara Corrington
About the Author
A Web designer by trade, Kinley MacGregor is the highly praised author of A Pirate of Her Own
and Master of Seduction,
which received a K.I.S.S. Award and was chosen as a Doubleday Book Club Award and was chosen as a Doubleday Book Club alternate selection. She lives outside of Nashville, Tennessee, with her husband, three sons, and assorted pets.
Raised in the middle of eight boys, and currently outnumbered by the Y chromosome in her home, Kinley realizes the most valuable asset a woman has for coping with men is the ability to appreciate them for what they are -- wonderfully different (and having a sense of humor certainly doesn't hurt).
Her goal in life is to share laughter and to bring a little sunshine into everyone's day. "After all," Kinley says, "kindness costs nothing to the person giving it, but it can mean the world to the one who receives it."
