Summary

From the incomparable New York Times best-selling author Bertrice Small comes a heroine as breathtaking as she is legendary.

Indomitable and bold in an era of royalty and rogues, Skye O'Malley is a woman who embraces her unbridled sensuality as valiantly as she fights for her children, her lovers, her empire. A woman of justice and honor, she will match wits with and challenge the most dangerous and powerful woman of her time: Queen Elizabeth I.

Though Skye is the object of every man's fantasy, only a handful have had the thrill of tasting her enticing passions - men whose own daring adventures match her exotic forays into a world of lust, longing, and remarkable destiny. Skye's is a stunning tale that reaches from the emerald hills of Ireland to the lush palaces of Algiers to the helm of a shipping empire, where she will wage her greatest battle for love and vengeance against the crown itself.

Contains mature themes.

far too long!

I love adventure but this was just too much! Just getting over one saga, then dumped into another.

It was a rollercoaster to begin with, my heart was broken on more than one occasion but in the end, I was bored and I didn't like the heroine. I won't be continuing with the series or trying another book of hers for a while.

A Classic

Having this appear as a preorder in my usual Monday night perusal of Tuesday’s releases made me so incredibly happy. Skye O’Malley is a giant of the historical romance genre, Bertrice Small’s magnum opus. It is a textbook example of an adventurous, romantic tale within the framework of actual historical events. The best authors of this genre know their history as well as their sexy, and Justine Eyre did a tremendous job. I hope this means we’re going to get the entire series. Bravo Audible! Now if you could get Judith Krantz’s books on tape, I’d be in heaven.

A WONDERFUL BEGINNING TO A SERIES SO FAR

I completely loved this book. It had a little of everything in it. I feel like I traveled the world with Skye. The narrator was great and I can't wait for the next book in the series.

Love this book, Skye O'Malley is an amazing woman. Not sure if Skye is suppose to be Grace O'Malley the pirate but I love the history pieces. Hope they add the rest of the O'Malley Saga!

My favorite series!

The story of Skye and her descendants have always been my favorite books since I started reading romance novels 25+ years ago. Now to be able to finally have it in an audiobook form is wonderful! I hope they release the rest of the series on audible soon.

There was a lot going on in this book

I did not expect this book to be such a sexual book... every other chapter, some woman was getting assaulted. Man, it was a lot of erotic content. I mean a little spiciness in a romance book is always welcome but omg this book has too much going on for me. I looooove Justin Ere but her narration for this book just wasn’t doing it for me either.

So Good!!

Loved it!! I read this close to 20 years ago and it was just as good this time if not better. This needs to be a TV series!
