Bride of the Wind is the first book i have ever read by Shannon Drake aka Heather GrahamIts a angstyexhilaratingfunny and intensely romantic adventure that gave me lots of fluttering feelings in my stomachIt starts with the strong headed and brave heroine who gets captured on a ship on her way to Bermudaby no other than by the notorious and barbaric pirate called the DragonslayerShe would never have imagined that its actually her once noble husband Pierce DeForte who she thought was deadRose Woodbine is one of the most strong and stubborn heroines i have encounteredI meanshe NEVER gave upEver since she first saw Pierce the awareness was there simmering between them and she clearly despised itI loved how she fought with him head to head and never surrenderedI also love how she makes him grovel in the end for having thought that she betrayed himI will say it againPierce DeForte was one delicious hero i just wanted to eatYUMM he made me melt with his strengthseductionintelligence and the way he created those rumors for everyone to fear him as the Dragonslayer made me laugh so badlyGod he was so much fun at timesAnd how he gets bewitched by his RoseAhhh but he loved her so badly and still did even when he thought she had betrayed himHe was very insecure and vulnerable when it came to Rosebecause she did after all show her hate in their every encounter even after he forcefully made her marry himThat scene where they first met near the river will always be inprinted on my mindIt was so hilarious and charmingThe sex scenes was hot as helland the angst in the whole book made me so excited i just had to follow page after pageWhat happenedHow did they meetHow did he become a pirateWhy do he hate her soSo many uestions that i was dying for answers and got satisfyingly while readingI also liked the supporting charactersKing CharlesRose`s father and even the OW Annie whose death caught me by surpriseThis book is incredibleespecially the 90% of itthe last 20 pages were predictable since they already by then had declared their love for each otherBut the revenge was there at last to clear Pierces name
