Happy Hour: Bennett’s Revenge
I don’t know about the rest of you, but with the recent snow dump that came last week, I’ve been dreaming of warmer temps, salty oceans, and sandy beaches!
And you want to know the perfect book to escape into on cold nights? Sea of Ruin!
Okay, you got me! It’s the perfect book to escape into any time of the year, in any climate! It’s no secret that almost all of us here at Biblio Babes read and obsessed over this book—so much so, that it was one of our 2020 Top Reads!
If you love gorgeous prose, strong women, taboo scenes, and pirate adventures on the high seas, you will freaking adore this book. Pam Godwin does not disappoint (I mean, does she ever?)!
And if you’re crackin’ into this book, there’s no other option than to drink this rum cocktail… with orange curacao (you’ll see why once you get a few chapters in!).
I call it: Bennett’s Revenge
To make this orange-rum cocktail, you’ll need:
2 oz dark rum
2 oz orange curacao
1 squeeze of fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp raw honey
1 tbsp hot water
1. Put the tablespoon of honey and hot water into the bottom of your empty glass. Stir until the honey dissolves.
2. Combine rum, curacao, and lemon juice over ice and shake it good. Shake it like a pirate shakes their booty! (Booty… Pirate’s booty… get it? Yarrrr!)
3. Pour over top of the honey mixture. Garnish with the peel of an orange (or lemon) and raise your glass to toast Pam Godwin… our very own pirate queen!

Bennett Sharp is on the run.
Wanted for piracy, she fears neither God nor death nor man.
Except Priest Farrell.
The unfaithful, stormy-eyed libertine hunts her with terrifying possessiveness. Nothing will stop him from coming for her. Not his unforgivable betrayal. Not when she’s captured by the ice-cold pirate hunter, Lord Ashley Cutler.
She must escape Ashley’s prison and Priest’s deceit. But can she walk away from their twisted desires?
Two gorgeous captains stand on opposite sides of the law. When they collide in a battle to protect her, the lines blur between enemies and lovers.
Passion heats, secrets unravel, and hearts entangle until they break.
Can love prevail in the sea of ruin?
