Angel's Master

The year is 1822 and life on the high seas just became more complicated for Ethan Williams. He’s a pirate with a conscience, and even though killing and plundering are his way of life, he’s searching for much more—and he’s tired of being alone.
 
Jacqueline Massey is connected with the American Navy. It’s her job to trick men into revealing they are indeed pirates. The guilt she feels about sending them to their doom is equaled only by her longing to be loved. But Jacqueline has a secret—one that has intertwined her fate with Ethan’s for longer than he’s known.
 
Can destiny bring together a pirate and an angel during the season of miracles, or will a watery death by Davy Jones locker drown their love? 
 
I had high hopes for this story, pirate stories always intrigue me. However, while the premise of a pirate with a conscience and a guilt ridden woman is a great twist to a pirate story the plot happened too fast. I would have liked to seen this story expanded to really get inside Ethan and Jacqueline’s emotions. They fell in love too quickly, especially when she was fighting him for most of the book, and then suddenly gave in to him.
 
The heroine was a little flat to me, and was too contradictory in her actions. The hero, on the other hand, was quite intriguing—an educated and refined pirate.
 
I did think the sex was hot, and Ms. Sookoo has a very intriguing voice and is great with description. I just wished Angel’s Master had of been just a bit longer to fully flesh out the plot and characters.
