Can a pirate learn that the only true treasure lies in a woman's heart?Widowed Silence Hollingbrook is impoverished, lovely, and kind--and nine months ago she made a horrible mistake. She went to a river pirate for help in saving her husband and in the process made a bargain that cost her her marriage. That night wounded her so terribly that she hides in the foundling home she helps run with her brother. Except now that same river pirate is back...and he's asking for her help."Charming" Mickey O'Connor is the most ruthless river pirate in London. Devastatingly handsome and fearsomely intelligent, he clawed his way up through London's criminal underworld. Mickey has no use for tender emotions like compassion and love, and he sees people as pawns to be manipulated. And yet he's never been able to forget the naive captain's wife who came to him for help and spent one memorable night in his bed...talking. When his bastard baby girl was dumped in his lap--her mother having died--Mickey couldn't resist the Machiavellian urge to leave the baby on Silence's doorstep. The baby would be hidden from his enemies and he'd also bind Silence to him by her love for his daughter.

She, Silence Hollingbrook, meek widow of no particular means, had just faced down Charming Mickey O'Connor, the most feared pirate in London. I was looking forward to this couple because of how "good" Silence and how "bad" Mickey was set-up portrayed; I'm found of supposed opposites like this, a'l...
I loved the character of Charming Mickey O'Conner the river pirate. I loved his Irish brogue, his tough exterior demeanor, his playfulness, and vulnerability. Silence was the perfect match to win and tame (just a little taming, mind you) him. The story was fun, passionate, had a few surprises, and ...
I finally had time to finish reading this amazing story. I also have to say that this is my second attempt to write my opinion about Scandalous Desires. It's not as thorough as the first one because my computer crashed and I had to start again. About a year ago Silence Hollingbrook tried to save a p...
A liked this historical romance with a good beginning, steamy parts and an exciting ending but it was kind of slow in the middle and I started to wonder if the hero was really as alpha as they set him up to be. Widow Silence goes to pirate Mickey's palace to demand her baby back.
