    1. Grrrr I hate writing three star reviews!!!I am too lazy to write a long one because I simply don't have much to say about this.The beginning was great and I loved the constant fighting between them.The sex was pretty hot, especially the first one.But then around the middle I just lost interest and skimmed it to the end. So there, I can't give any more than three stars to a book which I skimmed half of.Btw I don't know what exactly was the problem for me, maybe it was the writing style, because I [...]

    2. Hot Damn Sylvia Day.I Need a Cold Shower!!!If all angels of death were as lovely as you, men would line up to die.Maria is the Wintry Widow. She is rumored to have murdered her first two husbands. And both of them were agents of the Crown. The law wants her to pay for her crimes…but they are lacking evidence. Christopher St. JohnChristopher St. John is an infamous pirate. He has been arrested and in order to secure his freedom, he must find evidence against Maria. Proving that she was behind t [...]

    3. Oh Good Lord! I just have a word to summarize this: I'm not going to talk about the story (which was amazing) or characters (who are all great) BUT I'll tell you, guys, that I was like this and a lot of this (BECAUSE CHRISTOPHER PLEASE!)and at 99% I wasthe epilogueMy favourite part: (view spoiler)[Maria set the tip in the Aubusson rug and rested her hand casual y atop the hilt. “Do you love me?”Christopher’s brow arched. “Gads. How unsporting of you to solicit a declaration of love under [...]

    4. This was a 4 1/2 read, when I rounded it down to a four that seemed somehow wrong hence the 5.I really loved the hot romance between Maria and Christopher in my second read by Sylvia Day (first one was Ask for It which was equally as hot),coupled with the plot which involved Christopher and Maria being initially set up to betray each other by third parties it made for a nice read. Maria has earned herself the dubious title of The Wintery Widow because of the cold hearted way in which she dispose [...]

    5. Oh my gosh was this book all kinds of hot, hot, hot,hot, hot !! And no am not referring to the sex parts, okay those were really awesome too, but the actual plot was so unbelievably fascinating that half way through I already decided this one gets onto my auto to re-read list!PhotoThe read tells of Christopher he is infamous for satisfying his limitless wants and desires, don't you just love him already ?!Now that he is once again a free man he devotes his time to engage, deceive and seduce the [...]

    6. I thoroughly enjoyed Maria and Christopher's adventures. Maria is the type of heroine I really like, sophisticated and smart. She was really the star of this story. I highly recommend this one.

    7. Como sempre a Sylvia Day não me desilude!Eu já era doida pelo pirata St. John, mas neste livro perdi-me de amores do início ao fim.Que homem, meu deus, até me faz suspirar.Quente, sexy, provocador, selvagem, mas acima de tudo adorável.Lady Winter, que mulher de armas, nunca vi tanta coragem e determinação junta.Nunca desistiu do sonho de encontrar a sua irmã Amelia.Agora quero o terceiro desta série.Ansiosa por saber a história de Amelia e Colin.Adorei o papel deste dois neste livro.

    8. De toda la serie este es el libro que más me ha gustado. Ha sido el mejor elaborado en trama, en personajes, en escenas *guiño, guiño*. Amo la novela histórica romántica y me gusta mucho que Sylvia Day mezcle este género con espionaje, secretos, intrigas y una protagonista femenina fuerte y decidida, y un apuesto pirata ingenioso, perpicaz y a la vez tierno, compasivo.

    9. karamelasepetiii.Belki daha önce belirtmemişimdir ama Sylvia Day benim en sevdiğim yazarlardandır, bir çok kişinin aksine ben Judith'le veya Julie Garwood'la ya da Julia Quinn'le historical okumaya başlamadım. Historical okuma maceram Sylvia Day'in Yatağımdaki Yabancı kitabı ile başladı. O yüzden Pegasus'un bu kitabı çıkarmasını aylarca bekledim. Fakat Pegasus'a tepkili olduğum için sahaflara düşene kadar bekleme kararı aldım. Geçen hafta Akmar'da bir kitapçıda 6 TL [...]

    10. Sylvia Day can be a hit or miss author, in which sometimes she relies too heavily on sex to get her story across With her latest, she has hit her stride and to date I believe this is her best novel written. This story has everything a romance enthusiast would want. Of course there are Day's trademark sex scenes but what the hero and heroine have is something more intense and passionate, more than I have seen in a long time from other authors who try and don't succeed. Here, Day does and I applau [...]

    11. Forget about Christian Gray Give me Christopher St. John. Oh my. This book is sizzling. Christopher and Maria are both "bad" characters that you can't help but like. Things look pretty dismal in the beginning making you wonder how it can all work out in the end. Especially when the plot really thickens towards the middle of the book. I will admit that for a short time, when more characters and complications were added in to the mix, I was very confused, but, it actually was easy to understand in [...]

    12. I enjoyed reading the book but there wasn't really anything wonderful about it. I think that Day did an ok job with the romance and the background stories; probably better than she did in some of her earlier books. I feel like there is too much going on sometimes - too many characters she is trying to introduce and shed light on for future books. That would be fine but the main characters don't get enough development in my opinion; or at least enough for me to think it has the necessary spark. I [...]

    13. Lady Winter is a widow with 2 husbands deaths that are suspicious. Her father is holding her baby sister (Amelia)captive and is using her to blackmail her with, but she and her friend Simon Quinn are trying to find her. Christopher St. John is a pirate and in prison, but he is released in order to learn Lady Winter's secrets. He falls in love with her and doesn't want to see her hang.Lady Winter is also made to do the same thing regarding St. John. Only she falls in love with him and doesn't wan [...]

    14. Maria, Lady Winter, is thought to have killed her husbands. Christopher St. John is a much wanted pirate. The "agency" turns them against each other in exchange for their necks, but neither is aware. Maria is trying to get her sister back. Her stepfather is responsible for her husbands deaths, not her. But while she secretly looks for her sister, she must give her money to her stepfather and do his bidding. For now. He wants her to find out more about St. John and why the agency released him. So [...]

    15. I read this for a challenge, a book from my tbr pile within the first 3 months of joining GR. I picked this one because, for some reason, I have read the 1st, 3rd and 4th of the series with mixed reviews but skipped this one the 2nd of a series. A tbr book from 2012 checked off and as I believe this will complete the series for me yay, double the satisfaction!I really enjoyed this book. Christopher and Maria's chemistry was off the charts. Their stories drew me in. I loved the secondary characte [...]

    16. Not as hot as Ask for It or Bad Boys Ahoy!. I was really interested in reading about Christopher's story. And let me tell you, it's not as engaging as the aforementioned books. Since it's in the erotica category, the erotic moments are off-the-charts hot. Flaming hot. But I felt like Day let me down in the end. It didn't leave any favourable impressions with me. 2.5/5 stars.

    17. Very good read! Ms. Day captures the period with tailor crafted prose, a must for historical romance but difficult to pull off. For readers like me who appreciate that, they won't be disappointed.And the sexual tension between Christopher and Maria is awesomely delicious!

    18. My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts as I went with the bookI am so disappointed in Christopher’s story. It started out quite promising but went downhill after a few chapters. I didn’t really feel the plot, skipped quite a bit. And then, it just had many eww-factors/awkward situations than I care to read. I tried but just couldn’t really like or connect with either Maria or Christopher. I’ll try to point out the problems I had in this book in my review.I wasn’t su [...]

    19. “—¿Cuántas veces tengo que decirte que no te toques la ropa? —lo riñó Christopher—. Es un signo de debilidad y te delata, así que alguien podría explotarlo.—Lo siento. —El joven se puso bien las gafas y tosió.—No hace falta que te disculpes, limítate a corregirlo. Ponte recto, nada de encoger los hombros, y mírame a los ojos de igual a igual.”“El respeto hay que ganarlo, aquí y en todas partes. Nadie te respetará únicamente por ser amable y educado. De hecho, hay mu [...]

    20. Sylvia Day regency/Georgian novels are unapologetically lusty and sparkling. They offer a refreshing change from the simpering innocent heroines that dominate the genre, but give me the domineering heroes that I love. I read this novel in one sitting, enjoying the simplicity of the story and the development of the characters.Both Marie and Christopher were likable and I enjoyed that their relationship went from lust to love. They were both unapologetic about their attraction, and this was refres [...]

    21. Love a good time piece. Sylvia doesn’t disappoint. This was a well written story and very enjoyable to read. I fell in love with Lady Winter from the very beginning and kept falling more in love as the book went on. I loved her spice and sass especially in a time when neither was commonplace. Most especially for a woman. I love the man that is outside of the “suitable suitors”. I like the underdog. How could I not love a pirate? At first I wasn’t so sure but it wasn’t long until we kne [...]

    22. This is a hot read and very interesting for the first half. This is no sport. But its a romanced between widowed Maria and Christopher. I really forward to St. Josh's story in the series. He would definitely need a feisty partner. Throughout this book Maria kept blowing hot and cold and it dampened some of the romance since she couldn't make up her mind. Her step sister is her prime concern and she wants to do everything to protect her. The chemistry is sizzling but the book is not as good as th [...]

    23. I actually really enjoyed this book (I typically don’t read this historical genre type of books). I forgot how much I like Sylvia Day’s writing. The writing in this book was clever and witty. 4.5 Stars —the plot was sometimes too much and the transitions of going back and forth between all the different characters was a little erratic! Still, great story and Maria and Christopher were actually likable.

    24. Admittedly I am not a reader who likes romantic or historical books. My poor rating may reflect this taste but I did enjoy other novels by this author and was expecting the same amount of passion and skilled writing. I almost quit on this book after the first 80 pages but I remained optimistic that something would happen to capture my attention but I was horribly wrong.

    25. Hot! But with an entertaining and fairly gripping storyline. Both characters were strong-willed, but flexed to accommodate each other.I knew everything would work out in the end HEAs all around, except for the villains.On to the other installments!

    26. Sooo much better than the first book. I liked the slightly unusual love triangle, the main characters, and the dual love story. Some decent sex scenes in this one too! Best of all, I love me a happy ending!!!

    27. I loved it. The twists and turns made me afraid to turn the next page while being unable to stop. The female character was a match for her pirate in every way. Seeing the two square off against each other was a delight.
