Pirate captain Thayer Drake lures ships onto reefs for plunder, and business is lucrative. Yet, saving a lass from drowning after her ship wrecks becomes more than he bargained for when the crazy wench dives back into the raging sea for her blasted purse.
Tavern songstress Gilly McCoy, penniless and fleeing from the man who murdered her lover, stowed away on the doomed ship. Now at Drake's mercy, Gilly must earn her passage by performing for the captain. And that is not all: she must also kiss the captain at every ring of the ship's bell. But she discovers kissing the handsome rogue is not entirely a bad bargain....
Drake is intrigued by the beauty, but there is no room in his black heart for a woman. He has demons that he drinks nightly to forget. Meanwhile, Gilly has her own secrets to keep - ncluding why her purse is more valuable to her than her life....
This was a thoroughly enjoyable listen about a handsome pirate who is tortured by his past until he rescues a damsel in distress from a ship he's just helped to sink! Then insists on payment for her passage - but not in money!
Romance, humour, good storyline, great characters and a good narrator.
Am I happy I spent the credit? - Definitely.

If you could sum up The Siren's Song in three words, what would they be?
Intrigue, Romance, Adventure
What other book might you compare The Siren's Song to and why?
The story flows like a Julie Garwood Historical romance, solid characters, great flow, very clever banter between characters.
Have you listened to any of Helen Stern’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I loved Helen Stern's narration of Pride and Passion, and this book is right up there. She has a great voice.
My Favourite narrators are Roslyn Landor, Justine Erye, Susan Duerdan AND Helen Stern.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, and I did.
Any additional comments?
This was a great story and well worth the credit!
