The Rebel Pirate is the second book in the Renegades of the Revolution. This book can be read as a stand alone novel. Right away I liked Sarah. I found her to be a strong heroine. James may be a pirate but he does not have a true-hearted pirate soul. He is kind. I actually pictured Sarah and James as Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom's characters, Elizabeth Swann and Will Turner from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. They were meant for each other.
So at the back of the book are discussion questions to ask if you are in a book club or you could ask yourself or a fellow reader. I picked this question to answer.
James Sparhawk and Sarah Ward are drawn to each other right from the start. Does Donna Thorland convince you that their attraction goes deeper than mere lust? How does she accomplish that? Do you find their romance satisfying? What future do you envision for them?
Yes, the author does convince me that James and Sarah's attraction is more than just lust. They share a deeper connection that involves true love, family, and acceptance. Their romance is satisfying as again it is not built just upon lust. In fact, they don't get physical until a good way into the story. I envision a future filled with a long, happy life for James and Sarah that includes several children, who will turn out to have salt water in their veins like their parents.
