“I was hooked, and I could not stop turning the pages until the end." - Stacy Reid, author of Accidentally Compromising the Duke

Land. Power. Influence. Mary O’Malley knows these are the only things that matter in her war-torn country. Determined to win back her ancestral home, she must embark on a journey across the Atlantic disguised as a cabin boy. But her ruse brings her under the control of a dangerous sea captain who demands from her the one thing she will never give—complete and total submission.

Captain Richard Grant runs a tight ship, and he didn’t claw his way up through the ranks of the Royal Navy to be undone by a headstrong Irish girl hell-bent on jeopardizing his mission and his crew. If she insists on dressing like a man, then she can take his punishments. He demands obedience, but his insatiable need for her leads to a complex game of sex, desire, and dominance not even he can control.

Awakened by the passion Grant stirs in her, Mary finds herself falling for the stern captain. But when her false identity leads to rumors of her spying for the French, she must choose between her love for Ireland and the man who commands her body—and her heart.

The Captain’s Rebel by C.B. Halverson is the first story I’ve read by this author, and being a Scorched title ensures there will be steamy scenes as part of the seafaring voyage taken by the heroine to secure her fortunes.

Thank you to the author and Entangled for allowing me to read an ARC

This book was not what I was expecting at all! This is 50 Shades of Pirates! I didn't even think that way of "acting" sexually existed then.

Seriously HOT! HOT!! HOT!!! I look forward to reading everything C. B. Halverson writes in the future!! ...more

By Charlotte May 24, 2017

Having never read any of Ms. Halverson's previous works, I was in for a jolting surprise. Such raw sexual situations and being written in a first person type prose, nearly consumed me! I was all in for this adventurous and sometimes very dark literary treasure. I am waiting in abated breath for a... ...more

This book was a fun distraction from a hellish week. With a heat level that would make E.L. James' inner goddess blush and prose that took me away to another time, this was a fantastic read.

High Seas Hotness! The Captain's Rebel had EVERYTHING that I like in an interesting historical romance!

The Captain's Rebel (Irish Heroines) by C. B. Halverson is a interesting read. Normally, I do not enjoy first person reads, however, once you start reading this story, you soon forget it's written in first person, you get caught up in the story.

I enjoy being drawn into a story the moment I begin reading. Such is the case with "The Captain's Rebel" where Mary pursues reclaiming her family's home from the unwanted English residents.

By Red April 05, 2017

A pleasantly hot surprise! I loved the first person pov the story is written in. While I usually don't choose historical romance I'm positive I could be reformed if they were all written like this! aside from the hot sex scenes, the author gives a vivid look into the life/duty of a cabin boy, whi... ...more

By Angela April 21, 2017

This was my first C. B. Halverson book. I wasn't sure if I was going to like this story, I've read many books and for the most part, first person really doesn't work for me. This is not the case with this book. It was very well done.

Mary is a very strong-willed woman. She is more than happy to ma... ...more

Well, The Captain’s Rebel certainly surprised me!

Yeah, well, I was... ...more
