    Rebecca Small works at the local museum setting up the displays but with her obsession with the past she doesn't mind her job at all. Her biggest obsession is the famous pirate James Morrow who had vanished at sea. Her daydreams of herself and James are ones to make anyone blush but she can't help but get a little steamy while being near James' display. Once Rebecca touches the pirate’s antique sword though she finds herself on a pirate ship in the middle of a battle. More realistic than any of her daydreams Rebecca doesn't know quite what happened with just that one touch but the next thing she knows she is with the focus of her obsession, the one and only James Morrow. Treasured was a rather steamy little quick read novella. The idea behind this story that Rebecca time travels back to the days of her pirate obsession and the reasoning behind it was actually quite a good one. One thing I found though with this read is that it jumped right into the erotic and the plot seemed somewhat of an afterthought at times even though it was a rather nice one for this kind of read. The sexual parts however got a bit repetitive for such a short read. Overall, not too bad of an idea for a steamy little novella. A quick read for the fans of the erotic romance genre. I received a copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.For more reviews please visit https://carriesbookreviews.wordpress....

    Every once in a while I get in this mood where I'm like, "PIRATES! I want to read nothing but pirate books! ARRGH!" Rationally, I know that the limited amount of fresh water on a pirate ship probably meant that they all stunk to high heaven and it's more than likely that many of them suffered from scurvy and as a group they were bloody little buggers who raped and pillaged, yet... PIRATES!I think my skewed idea that pirates are somehow sexy comes from covers like this one. See? That's pretty, If all pirates really did look like that, they'd get all the chicks and could give up their raping and pillaging. Because, you know, the ladies would be throwing themselves at them.Anyway. Now that we've discussed my unhealthy obsession with pirates that occasionally flares up (pirate-itis? Oh, that just sounds wrong.) I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that this book gave me everything I was looking for. There was a sexy pirate who happened to like playing dominance games in bed and a sassy lady who is whisked from the present into the arms of said sexy pirate. There was a ship, swords, some blood and neither raping nor pillaging. Which just goes to show you that if you're hunky like the cover pirate you don't have to rape and pillage.It was a sexy, fast read that totally hit the spot.-Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal

    Another tough decision, between a 3 and 4 this time. I enjoyed the story, liked the characters and thought the sex scenes were quite hot. My problem is there wasn't really much to this story. Yes, the heroine was a student of history and had studied the time period, but she had very little trouble accepting that she had traveled back in time by about 300 years. Yes, it was refreshing to have a heroine that didn't act completely stupid on finding herself in another time, but this was just a bit too smooth. Basically there was very little tension in this story or maybe the tension just didn't feel all that threatening to me.I feel ridiculous writing a review that states that a time-travel romance wasn't believable enough - it's a TIME-TRAVEL! However, I have the tendency to accept all the unbelievable plot devices and then expect the people in these unbelievable plot situations to act believably. Well, anyone who followed that convoluted statement - I'm impressed! ;^)It was fun and very well written. The story was also just a bit too smooth for my taste in time-travel stories. Not my favorite Crystal Jordan book, but she remains an author from whom I can expect a solidly written, entertaining story.

    Rebecca touches an old pirate sword and ends up smack in the middle of a sword fight on board a ship...A pirate ship...An 18-century pirate ship...In the 18th century…And the man whose life she saves happens to be the man whose portrait she’s been mooning over the past couple of days while she prepared a museum exhibit. The same man who claims to be her husband…Yikes.Though this short story read more like an extended sex scene, there was enough plot, characterization, budding romance, and character development to keep this reader happy. In the end I wished it was a bit longer, but since we cannot have everything we wish for, I’m very satisfied with this quick read.

    Awesome short story. Loved the mix between scifi and historical time swap and pirate adventure. Sexy and great action in it. this just has a bit of kinky side to it which definitely spices things up with this really quick short story. great HEA

    I suppose not every book themed the way I like it is going to make me all giddy... Well, I'm OK with that, sort of...The story is about Becca, a young woman obsessed with the Golden Age of Piracy, and who's in lust with one of the historical faces the current museum display she's helping put up is hosting, James Morrow. Somehow, while touching one of the swords, she travels back in time - and straight into his arms. Having the same name and face as his bitch of a wife, she gets nothing but cold lust and suspicion from the pirate captain - especially since she's nothing like the shrew he knew to have married. However, facing dangers and enemies together while at sea makes them get closer than they initially thought...Seriously, I liked the idea of it all. Time-travelling, and pirates, and a short sexy story of a love meant to be despite the individuals being born centuries apart. And did I mention the pirates? Craaaazy One Piece fangirl here (ha! you lot thought it was about Jack Sparrow, huh? well, he's a good bonus, too, but come on, who can compare to the Strawhats and, oh, good Lord, to Kid and Law?!), so yeah, the pirate-theme always gets me.So what went wrong?, you might ask.Well, the whole thing went from zero to one hundred waaaay too fast. Even for a short story, that was too much. You can't reach true love from simple lust - and let's face it, Becca didn't even know James, yet she was halfway in love with him just because he was hot and knew how to make a woman scream in bed, while James wasn't even THERE since all he was seeing was his wife acting suspiciously different. A few arguments, loooots of tupping, and BAM! Love is in the air -oh, wait, no, that's actually the ocean breeze...It didn't work for me. Emotionally, that is. Becca was a fine enough girl, and I liked her alright, but James... I've had enough of hot guys being jerks because someone wronged them, thank you very much. He may be entitled to it, but it still irked me. Not to mention the adultery! Seriously? Sleeping with other women? I don't care how much of a bitch your wife is, sir. I would find it even more acceptable if you simply strangled her in her sleep or threw he off the ship, than to get between another woman's legs. That's a big no-no for this family-oriented gal right here, and the fact you actually fell back in love with said wife - or, well, her clone - and decided to finally keep Captain Jr. down there happy with only one female doesn't mean squat to me. Cheating is still cheating!Another problem - the freaking back door. Once was enough for me. Seeing it used again - AND WHY THE PEARLS?!?! THEY'RE MY FAVORITE GEMSTONES AND YOU NEARLY RUINED THEM FOR ME!!! - had me cringing. Like, a LOT! Finally, the whole time-travelling thing. I would have been fine without one single explanation. No, really. I think it would have been way better than what I was given. I felt like I was reading the script of some kind of cartoon. So not in touch with the "pirate erotica" theme the book had going on up until that point.Of course, no one should forget that maybe Ms. Jordan didn't meet MY pirate-romance standards. That doesn't mean she may not reach someone else's, as the story was otherwise well-written in terms of grammar, historical reference, humor and pace. I'm also after reading other books of hers, in hopes of finding if maybe they can click better than this one.***I was given an ARC from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    WARNING: Since this is a short erotic piece, my review/criticisms contain explicit language. That said, Treasured had promise to be a really nice erotic short. The setup and storyline hit all my happy buttons. Time travel? Check. Pirates? I hate to admit it, but I'm a sucker for them. Hints of BDSM? Check. Unfortunately, most of the story was smut. Which wouldn't be unfortunate at all, if the smut wasn't so flawed. It wasn't the worst smut I've read, and it did have heat despite its flaws, but after a certain point, I tuned out. If you're going to write multiple sex scenes, mix it up a bit. I really liked that the first sex scene was so unconventional, but then every one after that seemed like the same stuff over and over again - the same phrases, the same nipples contracting under his laser-eyed stare, the same pussy-cream (Which just grosses me out. If it's "creamy" it makes me think there's a yeasty problem happening down there), the same pre-come flick of the tongue, the same fisting/milking cunt. Also, I have never known any woman who has ever had the experiences of being so aroused her "cream" actually trickles down her thigh. After the sexing? Sure, maybe. But just arousal? No. With our heroine, it happens every time, which leads me to my next criticism.Repetition of phrase, both good and bad. And there were actually a couple of neat lines, but authors need to remember that a unique turn of phrase is only effective once. Use it more than once (especially in such a short context), it starts to look desperate and like you don't have any more creative tricks in you. Two particular examples here: Her cunt/pussy "fisting". It was a neat image the first time. But it happened every time, and just - it loses its effect. Also, sucking on teeth (this was not in an erotic context). At first I was taken aback, but then I thought about it, and it was actually a really cool description. Unfortunately, it happened again, and in reaction to the same villain. Clever descriptions and metaphors stick out to a reader. Which means we'll notice when they get recycled. Anyway, like I said, this could have been a really nice erotic short, but it was so heavy in unpolished erotica that it lost a lot of points.

    I received this book from net gallery for an honest review. Rebecca touches a dagger at the museum and ends up travelling back into past to 1715. She can't believe what she's seeing: James Morrow, the pirate she's been having naughty fantasies about is fighting right before her very eyes. Is she dreaming? Did she somehow bang her head? Can James fulfil her hidden desires? James is confused, his wife hated his guts so what's the secret behind her sudden change? Can he trust her? This was a short, sexy, read and I enjoyed it. I was surprised at how Crystal cleverly incorporated BDSM: replacing vibrators with candles was definitely creative. James was a sexy pirate and his domineering persona made things interesting. James and Becca have explosive chemistry and the sex scenes were scorching hot. I enjoyed the book but wished it was longer but I would recommend it.

    The negative reviews were leaning me towards not reading this book. After reading it it's not that bad it's just another case of different strokes for different folks. Rebecca travels through time to 1715 to James who is a pirate, while the other Rebecca originally from 1715 travel to the present. There was a little action as well as good loving between Rebecca and James, the original Rebecca from 1715 was a meanie to everyone around her so when the Rebecca who came from the present was around everyone they saw this change of a nice Rebecca so that lead James to wonder about the new Rebecca. Hope I'm not confusing. But it wasn't that bad. Now even though I liked the story it was ok it's not a Wow story but an ok read.

    I wouldn’t say that Crystal Jordan’s “Treasured” is a spanking novel. I would say that this book is an erotic novel containing a lot of sex with a spanking or two thrown in for good measure. That said I still really enjoyed this book. The focus may not have been on spanking, but it was still a hot read.Becca was the perfect protagonist. She was strong, independent, and could sword fight better than a man. But when she and James were together, she was completely submissive. Her loyalty to James was both sexy and endearing.If you are looking for a steamy novel to read, this one is perfect for you. It is well written and keeps the reader engaged. I only wish it had a few more spankings amidst all the spicy sex.Katerina of BottomsUpBookReview

    Wow…this is one scorching read. Rebecca’s time-travelling back to her history crush changes the meaning of you can’t go back. James is totally alpha and a pirate – yes please. Rebecca is badass and James cannot help but be intrigued by his “new” wife. Their chemistry leaps off the page. I have not read a pirate book in a long time, I think I need to go back to these books. A great quick read. I received a complimentary copy from the publisher through NetGalley.

    This story was unbelievably amazing. Who wouldnt to fall into a world with a hot pirate? I read this book hundreds ago and still remember it in detail. It is not a easily forgotten read, but one that will stick with you and be reread over and over. I loved it!

    This was my favorite pirate story before I read any of Maureen O. Betita's The Kraken's Caribbean stories! In general I don't like time travel stories, but Ms. Jordan handled it well. This is the book which steered me to purchase more of her work!
