   About the Book: 

  When rakish Ned falls in with the wrong crowd, his brother decides     to send him to the Continent for “seasoning”. For Sophia, this just      won’t do. She’s loved Ned for ages—and also longed for adventure.    She runs away from her boring suitors and disguises herself as a cabin boy on the Defiant, the ship sailing Ned to Italy.

Ned knows he’s not good enough for Sophia, but once they’re on the Defiant, he can’t stop himself from touching her, tasting her, loving her. Not when a wild tempest and a band of ruthless pirates threaten them. Not when every look from her gives him such pleasure. And certainly not when she comes, warm and wild and willing, to his bed.

If they survive their voyage, Sophia’s brother might kill him, but it will have been worth every moment and every hot, sweet kiss.

About the Author:

Her Royal Hotness, Sabrina York, writes naked erotic fiction for fans who like it hot, hard and balls-to-the-wall, and erotic romance and fantasy for readers who prefer a slow burn to passion.

An award winning author of hot, humorous stories for smart and sexy readers, her titles range from sweet & sexy erotic romance to BDSM to erotic horror.


Defiant is the first historical story I have had the chance to read by Sabrina York. I must say this talented lady can write historical romance with steam just as well as she write contemporary. I so hope I am able to get a chance to read the rest of this series because I have a feeling they are AWESOME. 

I positively adored Sophia. She has a quirky humor, a sassy side, and oh my is that girl full of curiosity. When she sets out to get what she wants she pretty darn good at doing what ever it takes to get. She is also creative, brave, and knows when to poor on the charm. She is quite a lady and I really enjoyed meeting her. 

Ned is the bad boy that is being punished for hanging with the wrong crowd. He loves Sophia so but her brother thinks he is not any where near good enough for her. I really liked Ned, under his bad boy persona he really is a sweet, good hearted gentleman that will do what ever has to be done to have his lady love. 

This is some story, really, I could not put this book down! Sabrina York is one talented author that I always enjoy reading. In this story she has plenty of drama, a lot of suspense, some danger, a little humor, and oh boy those steamy scenes that sure have a way of warming things up a bit. 

There are so many things that happen in this story, I was completely captivated and I could not wait to see what twist Ms. York was going to throw in the story next. Wow this was a wild ride at sea but a lovely read. 

I so hope that I have the opportunity to read the first books in this series. I am sure they are just as awesome as Defiant. You don't have to worry if you are like me though and have not read the previous books, this book can easily be read as a stand alone. 

I was given the opportunity to read this book so that I may share my thoughts with you. As always it has been my great pleasure to share my thoughts with you on Defiant
