The Unraveling of Lady Fury

 The Unraveling of Lady Fury 
 3 of 5 stars false
Genoa 1820
Rule One: There will be no kissing. Rule two: You will be fully clothed at all times…
Widowed Lady Fury Shelton hasn’t lost everything—yet. As long as she produces the heir to the Beaumont dukedom, she just might be able to keep her position. And her secrets. But when the callously irresistible Captain James “Flint” Blackmoore sails back into her life, Lady Fury panics. She must find a way to protect herself—and her future—from the man she’d rather see rotting in hell than sleeping in her bed. If she must bed him to keep her secrets, so be it. But she doesn’t have to like it. A set of firm rules for the bedroom will ensure that nothing goes awry. Because above all else, she must stop herself from wanting the one thing that Flint can never give her. His heart.
Ex-privateer Flint Blackmoore has never been good at following the rules. Now, once again embroiled in a situation with the aptly named Lady Fury, he has no idea why he doesn’t simply do the wise thing and walk away. He knows he’s playing with fire, and that getting involved with her again is more dangerous than anything on the high seas. But he can’t understand why she’s so determined to hate him. He isn’t sure if the secret she keeps will make things harder—or easier—for him, but as the battle in the bedroom heats up, he knows at least one thing. Those silly rules of hers will have to go…


****This book was part of a blog tour I was given a copy for my honest review****
I have such mixed feelings about this book. I loved Captain James “Flint” Blackmoore and enjoyed the story but spent half the time confused even by the sex scenes. It was so hard to understand what was going on, half the time I had to re-read facts or I wouldn't even know they had sex until it was done. It just felt like there was too much worry going into the historical aspect of it rather than the facts or story dev elopement. There was a part where Flint revealed something to Fury and you understood that Fury reacted to it but you didn't understand what "it" was until further in the book when it was brought up again. Another issue I had was that there would be a few lines that would pop up here and there that felt completely out of the era. I probably could have overlooked a lot of those issues if it wasn't for Lady Fury. There was nothing that I could connect to with her, she was so wishy washy and manipulative it drove me insane. The thing that saved the book for me and kept the 3 stars was Flint. I loved him, granted he kept his own feelings secret out of self preservation and I wanted to throttle him at times, but I just loved his character. He was funny, sexy, and contained more redeeming qualities than I gave him credit for in the beginning. The book wasn't bad, I just couldn't connect to it.
