FF Friday: The Pirate and Her Princess Trilogy by Alli Temple


I've had the first book in The Pirate and Her Princess trilogy on my TBR since just after it came out, but when I only had 4 ARCs on my list this week, and the final book came out recently, I knew it was time to binge read the series!

From the blurbs:

Uncharted (Book 1)

In a world of arrogant nobles and their punishing laws, Georgina will be hanged if anyone discovers she is a spy. But when the wicked prince proposes marriage, Georgina must accept. Refusing would expose the secrets she has delivered to a hidden resistance and forfeit her life. With her wedding day looming ever closer, salvation comes from an unlikely source.

Pirate Captain Cinder is a terror on the open sea, striking fear into hearts wherever she sails. Now she has a new target. The vulnerable Princess Georgina should be an easy mark in Cinder’s kidnapping plot. But the legend of Captain Cinder is more intertwined with Georgina’s own history than either of them expect.

Treacherous storms. A mysterious pirate king. The prince’s unrelenting pursuit. Georgina and Cinder can only escape by following the uncharted course of their hearts. But just as a future together is within their grasp, Cinder’s past threatens to drag them both to the deep.

Unbroken (Book 2)

A pirate’s home is the sea, sailing beyond the horizon with her true love.

Aboard the Crimson Siren, Captain Cinder finally has the life she’s always dreamed of. Her freedom is restored, her crew is a trustworthy bunch, and the princess who holds her heart is by her side.

But trouble brewing back in Redmere threatens to pull Cinder and Princess Georgina apart before their future can truly begin. Georgina feels a responsibility to help, while Cinder is vehemently against returning to their former home. Instead, she embarks on a dangerous treasure hunt that could cost her everything. Faced with a deadly threat, Cinder pushes everyone around her away just when she needs them most.

Friendships are tested. Risky alliances forged. Yet as storm clouds darken Cinder’s future, one thing becomes painfully clear: Her home is taking on water, and time to save the people she loves is running out.

Unbroken continues the adventures of Cinder, Georgina, and the crew of the Crimson Siren. For maximum enjoyment, start with Uncharted, book 1 in the series.

Unleashed (Book 3)

If the crown fits, she will wear it.

Georgina never wanted to be a princess. Now she’s free to chart her own course and love the woman who holds her heart. But Redmere’s pull is strong, and the world has turned its back on the people’s suffering.

Yet while George is ready to storm the castle, Lou won’t risk everything on a doomed revolution. She’d rather search for the true heir of Redmere, a lost princess who hasn’t been seen in years. If only she can convince George to be patient a little longer.

The winds of change are coming, and friends and family are calling for help. To save Redmere and themselves, George and Lou must sail a united path together, or else the seas of fate will part them forever.

Unleashed concludes the adventures of George, Captain Cinder and their crew. It should not be read as a standalone novel. For maximum enjoyment, start with Uncharted, book 1 in The Pirate & Her Princess.

Heather's Review:

If you're looking for a series to binge on your vacation, may I humbly recommend The Pirate and Her Princess trilogy from Alli Temple.  I heard it described as The Princess Bride, but lesbian, but it's more than that...

Combining a little bit of The Handmaid's Tale, some Pirates of the Caribbean and reuniting childhood sweethearts who were torn from each other at  a very young age, The Pirate and Her Princess trilogy is an epic tale set in it's own world of intrigue, deception and greed, in the best possible way.

George and Lou are both destined to be a light and a saving grace for the people who cross their paths, but in such different ways and with different backgrounds... they have to overcome their own histories to create their HEA and save the world... at least their corner of Redmere....

Sometimes fun, often emotional, definitely dangerous, I tore through the series and devoured every word.  This series definitely needs to be read in order and now that it's complete, allowed me to sink deep into the depths of the seas and fall in love with the The Pirate and Her Princess!

Rating: 5 Stars

The Pirate and Her Princess trilogy is currently available in paperback and e-book and can be read as part of your Kindle Unlimited Subscription.
