Reckoning by MaryLu Tyndal

Back Cover:
When Morgan Shaw crept into the hold of an old pirate ship replica at San Diego’s Annual Tall Ship Festival, her only intention was to avoid the guy who had just dumped her and who was now boarding the ship with two women on his arm. What she didn’t expect was to wake up aboard a real pirate ship three-hundred years in the past. But of course, it wasn’t real. Her wealthy father had obviously staged it all in an effort to get her mind off her upcoming chemo. Or had he?  

Pirate Rowan Dutton seeks enough treasure to repay a debt to his sister and reinstate the Dutton name among British Jamaican Society. He is but one major haul away from accomplishing his goal when a strange woman appears on his ship and causes him to lose his prey. Despite his anger, he is enthralled with the little minx, her strange clothing, odd speech, and her insistence that they are all actors playing a charade paid for by her father.  

Yet when the brazen little lady divulges Rowan’s secret to a longtime nemesis, events are triggered that could cost them both their lives and change the course of history forever.

This is one of those books you love to read, because it marries old favorite characters with a new generation. You get to hear about everyone in the Legacy of the Kings Pirates series! Plus you get to hear and learn about a new generation, the children :)
When Morgan is having a hard time with health issues, a horrible boyfriend, and a little to much to drink...along with being at a Pirate re-inactment on board the Reckoning. Little did she know she was stepping directly into her past/future. It all starts when she is intrigued by a painting done of the great pirate Rowan on board his Ship the Reckoning. And after that it gets a little hazy for her.
Rowan doesn't understand this woman that has appeared on his ship. All he knows is that he likes her. but she is distracting him from his mission.
Marylu has done it again where she has brought together the past with the present in a wonderful Pirate based book! I love how she does this. The two in this book fight their attraction. And even though they are both confused out of their minds over what is happening they start to form a friendship and mutual trust and understanding that has them helping each other out through out the whole book. In the end this book has some plot twists that I think will surprise you!

To the FTC and whomever else it may concern, I received this book MaryLU Tyndall. In return, I have promised to review the book but have been given the freedom by the author to give my honest opinions whether they be positive or negative.
Taken By Dee Henderson

Back Cover:
An investigator who knows tragic loss firsthand, 
and his new client, missing far too long...

Abducted at the age of sixteen and coerced into assisting the Jacoby crime family, Shannon Bliss has finally found a way out. She desperately wants to resume some semblance of normal life, but she also knows she has some unfinished business to attend to. She might have enough evidence to put her captors behind bars for a very long time. 

When Shannon contacts private investigator Matthew Dane, a former cop, to help her navigate her reentry into society, he quickly discovers that gaining her freedom doesn't mean her troubles are over. If the Jacoby family learns she is still alive, they'll stop at nothing to silence her.

If justice is to be done, and if Shannon's life is ever to get on track again, Matthew will need to discover exactly what happened to her--even if it means stirring up a hornet's nest of secrets.

 One thing I love about Dee Henderson's works is that she is very good about making a rounded storyline. That and I love how she brings characters in from other books in her series. It helps you get to hear from some of your favorite characters while getting to know new ones! I love that about her! She had a few cameo's from some of the O'Malley Group in this book and I loved it!!!! It's one of my all time favorite series to read! I read it over and over again and cry every time when it comes time for Jennifer to pass. makes me sad just thinking about it.
In Taken, Dee henderson is not gonna disappoint. Everything you loved from her other books is present in this new one! I am absolutely in love with it! if there was one thing I would prefer, it would be that she was able to release way more books. lol. for me it takes to long to get the next one. but when it comes out, boy is it worth it.
IN this new book, you have Michael who has had tragedy happen in his past with him and his daughter. and he is just now starting to get it back together completely. that is until Shannon is literally sitting outside his hotel room one night when he was supposed to be on his way to dinner with some friends...who are trying to set him up on a blind date.
Shannon has finally gotten away from her kidnappers, and it has been years. The one person she believes she can trust happens to be Michael, because of how she has seen him cope with his daughter being kidnapped as well.
As Michael helps Shannon make her way back home, he learns more about the woman sitting next to him, along with himself on the long car ride back to Chicago. He learns just how much Shannon has been doing to help the people around her the past few years that she has been missing. And just how much they will end up helping each other in the end of this adventure.
Like I said, I loved this book and I would highly recommend it to any and everyone!
