What Love?

A Pirate's LoveA Pirate's Love by Johanna Lindsey
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Bettina Verlain, the heroine of the story, is abducted by the hero of the story (or maybe we can call him the main villain?) Captain Tristan, a sexy and handsome pirate. And the hell begins... (just for Bettina, cause for Tristan it's a wonderful voyage).

Abundant with numerous rape scenes, no wonder feminists despise this novel.

But this story is just another case of Stockholm Syndrome. Eventually, Bettina falls in love with Tristan, and vice versa.

A good romance novel usually makes female reader falls in love a bit with the main hero, but I think Captain Tristan Matisse doesn't have the hero material that needed.

Well, maybe it's understandable 'cause this novel is one of the first of Lindsey's.
