Product Description

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...

HASH(0x9da97b04) out of 5 stars Great atmosphere and wonderful characters July 28 2015
By K.K. - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Wow, I liked this book. It's the second one I've read by this author, and I like it for a lot of the same reasons I liked the first one. It's set in Louisiana in the early 1800s, and the author has really captured the rich, mysterious feeling of the place and time.

Because of a past trauma, the heroine, Colette, has memory lapses that keep her from remembering much of the recent past, including how she came to be together with her husband, the infamous pirate Donato de la Roche. But when the book opens, they are no longer together. She and her baby had been rescued by her brother Jordan, and taken to live in New Orleans, and the pirate is on his way to steal back his child. Unfortunately, the child is abducted before he arrives, and Colette and Donato, who no longer trust one another, and think the other is the abductor, join forces to recover the child.

The characters are strong, interesting, passionate, and yet realistic. The situations they face are harrowing, including sea battles and rough weather, which are told so realistically that you feel as if you're right there in the midst of the excitement. Just wonderful. And the intrigue, the mystery of why the child was taken, what situation they'll find when they get to him, and the truth of Colette's and Donato's past, is just as real and just as fascinating. I loved the rich and interesting time period and locations. And I loved the characters. I especially loved the rivalry between Colette's brother and Donato, who didn't hesitate to sink Jordan's boat when he had the chance. Even so, Jordan looks out for Donato in the end. I was sorry that the book had to end, all the more because it ends with an annoyingly effective cliffhanger that has me impatient for the third book in this series.

HASH(0x9ab3e9cc) out of 5 stars A handsome, Spanish pirate is pretty hard to resist! Aug. 1 2015
By Laurie Hoffman - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I'm a sucker for a historical pirate romance (who isn't?). So when I saw the cover of A Pirate's Command, I needed to read this book.

The story takes place in New Orleans in the early eighteen hundreds. Europe is in turmoil with revolutions rocking the peace of the ruling class. Donato de la Roche is Spanish royalty but also a feared pirate, who roams the waters of the Caribbean. His beloved wife, Colette has fled back home to New Orleans, taking their son with her. Donato wants his son back and won't let anyone get in his way.

Only someone else gets to the boy first. Now Donato and Colette have to work together to figure out who kidnapped him and get their son. Along the way, they will also have to come to terms with truth about their feelings for one another. Love might not be enough to heal their two wounded hearts.

This book was everything I anticipated; love gone awry, secrets, a sexy pirate, political intrigue, and a smoking hot love story. Meg Hennessy did her homework. She added plenty of cool nautical terms and period dialogue that gave the story an authentic feel. I liked the slow burn between Donato and Colette. After Colette's disappearance with their son, their relationship would naturally take time to heal. Colette had very valid reasons for returning to New Orleans with her brother and not trusting Donato...but a handsome, Spanish pirate is pretty hard to resist!

I am looking forward to reading more from Meg Hennessy.

HASH(0x9b03c6d8) out of 5 stars I love picking up a good novel and becoming lost into ... Aug. 10 2015
By Sue-ellen B. Robertson (GirlyGirlBookReviews) - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I love picking up a good novel and becoming lost into the storyline! There are many historical romances; however, not many that have a perfect combination of historical and pirate hero entwined. A Pirates Command, is filled with non stop action as the the main characters try to win over what was once lost while trying to also find their son. They have a chemical reaction to each other and even though the trust is gone, sparks are still there and stronger than ever. Can Donato and Collete come together and figure out the truth behind the disappearance of their son.
As the story falls in line, secrets are uncovered and the plot literally unfolds with you in the story. I love the characters and how the author portrays them with their strong yet weaknesses during situations, just like realistically events. You see how they love and the passion that flows off the pages. The author fills this gem up with mystery, suspense, and lots of passion to keep you turning that the end of the novel comes up without you realizing it. The flow is impeccable and any writing that makes me sink into the story is one that is sure to be re-read!

Yes watch out this does have a cliffhanger but the author will leave you in such a book hangover and hunger for more that you will be jumping for the next one. I highly recommend this author and novel for your next Historical Pirate addiction!

HASH(0x9b03c468) out of 5 stars Strong Characters, Real Emotions, Unique Locations July 31 2015
By K Miller - Published on

Meg Hennessy has yet again produced a passionate story steeped in historical atmosphere. She deftly weaves the pain, mistrust and secrets between Donato and Collette throughout the entire story as they search for their missing son. Their emotions and the story's plot are enhanced by Meg's ability to immerse the reader in the uncommon settings, from New Orleans to Spain. The story's resolution is dramatic and romantic, and also cleverly sets up the next story in the trilogy. I can't wait to read about the adventure Donato's sister embarks on in the next story!

HASH(0x9b06c528) out of 5 stars Cliffhangers, passion and suspense - oh my! July 28 2015
By Betsy Norman - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've been waiting for Donato de la Roche's story since Jordan stole Collette - Jordan's long lost sister and Donato's bride - in the cliffhanger ending of Dark Secrets, Deep Bayous! Ms. Hennessy certainly delivers a churning hot love story as stormy as the open sea by forcing these two reluctant lovers together to rescue their kidnapped son. Mystery, suspense, and a constant undertow of passion pulled me into their story all the way to the end - where yet another cliffhanger left me hungry for the next book and Rayna de la Roche's story!
